Album Review

Reviewed 2005-01-18
It’s on Anticon so it’s hip-hop-ish, right? Well, mostly, still there’s variety of styles on here. It’s good. old-sounding synths. lyrics in booklet w/cussing underlined to help you bleep- it’s worth the effort. Most tracks about 2mins.

+1. Old-synth instrumental, a little dark, beat high in mix, gets a little chaotic at end
++2. IDM beat, fast rap, a lot of words, hard to follow
3.FCCs, and easier to understand the words than in the previous. Slow
+4.FCC. Short track, minimal (built from two bars)
++5.FCC. Slow. pretty acoustic guitar and beats, folky harmnozed male vocals.
++6.FCC. Noisy, punky, annoying rap
+7.short complaining rap, simple mid-tempo beat
+8.named after an Edward Gorey book! Fast rap, slowish beats
9.FCC(? ass, bitch) mostly fast rap, mid-tempo beat
++10.chaotic synth intro, then buzzy beats, slow and laid back, languid singing alternating with rap.
+11.creepy buzz intro, fast rap, short, minor key menace
++12.FCC (One hard-to-hear “bullshit”) .electric piano intro, then fast rap and melodic singing and political samples. Sounds like Atom & His Package
+13.very short sort- 80’s sounding anthem
+14.Fast & slow rap, and more Atom & His Package style chanting
15.not so hot
16.FCC(? bitch) pretty slow guitar, unhappy lyrics, gets a little noisier & beatier
17.Fast rap, more rhythmic, midtempo repetitive music
+18 melodic instrumental interlude
++19.Synths from krautrock, singing & fast rapping, short track
+20.FCC, minor key, slow, hopspital discomfort
21.acoustic guitar & deep filtered synth, 3/4 time, some falsetto
