So I'm thinking alright.... I get home and open the case to an all black cd. No booklet on the back of the album cover all it said was " artwork by some dude (can't remember his name - sorry) and everything else by Buck 65. To make a long story short Buck saved me. I had totally given up on hip hop (this was back in 99)Tribe was no more De La was quiet Outkast was cool but Buck came with it. Buck opened my ears to the likes of Anitcon etc. But still to this day he is my Hip-Hop hero. I met him in Ottawa before a show and told him all of this and he replied "Thanks Man, enjoy the show" So modest so cool so fresh so...get up off your ass and get it. It will blow you away
When I first heard 'Vertex' I couldn't believe my ears. It was a new dimension of hip-hop to me. It was a great adventure to listen to Buck's words and to get an acces to Buck mind. It was a mysterious but a great venture, too.
Buck's style, voice and lyrics captivated me from the first minute to the last. It was musically strange but very catchy. It is PURE hip-hopo at its best. Nothing commercial. It was intelligent, descriptive, original and creative. I felt in love with 'Vertex' at the first listening.
From the beginning to end it was a great pleasure to me. It ain't no day to me without Buck's music. Everyday I listen to 'Vertex'. I can't stop listening and analyzing it.
My favorite tracks are 'The Centaur', 'On All Fours', 'Sleep Apnoea', 'Supper at Sundown', 'Bachelor of Science' and 'In Every Dream House There Is a Heart Ache'.
But the rest of the CD is marvellous hip-hop at its best. This is the only CD amongst a few that I never press the skip button on.
Belive me and the other 7 reviewers because if you wanna hear pure, original and creative hip-hop without that bling-blinp bullcrap then HAVE Buck 65 'Vertex'.
Told: 5 stars!
