The first two singles were pretty much what I was expecting from Print, rhyme-wise at least. But So Alive is totally different and I can't wait to hear what the rest of the album sounds like.

Had a chance to chop it up with Print and Illogic some months ago at one of their shows, and they sold me on the concept behind the album. I know dude is on some singing shit, and that gives some cats pause, but I know he's taking it from a lyrical/MC angle, so I'm giving it it's fair day in court. Plus, if you're fronting on "Radioinactive," then I don't know what the fuck to tell you.

moving on for now, maybe revisit later this week. couldn't get into it. liked a few tracks, but not even enough to feel compelled to go back and relisten to them in particular.

*continues to wait for that new atmosphere*

RSE did blueprint really dirty. I've only listened to this once (and it was quite good), but I also received a copy of the new atmosphere record today (perks of a music journalist)and have played the family sign 4 times already.

its a grower. at first wasnt crazy with all the guitar/key heavy tracks (mainly cuz i prefer their sample-based work), but the beats are great.

and slug is incredible. the subject matter is really grown up, and i think thats a great thing. this is the most mature sounding hip hop record ive ever heard, all these rappers pushing 40s should take note.

I imagine scheduling album releases is difficult. That label seems more interested in putting out music the artist wants to make than any other label.

youre totally right. actually Rhymesayers is easily my favorite label doing it right now. but they've had advertisements up for this blueprint album up for a while (i want to say January, but i cant say for sure), which included album art and tracklist, so I'd say it's a pretty safe assumption the album was complete by then. they couldve pushed his rlease up a couple of weeks and push back atmosphere a couple.

just to let the music breathe a little, and to be a little easier on my wallet.

When they first announced it at the beginning of the year, it was going to drop in March. Something must have happened to put it so close to Atmosphere's album.

They've got a lot coming out this year too, Grieves, Evidence, Face Candy, Los Nativos. P.O.S. might be dropping a new album and I've heard rumors of a posthumous album from Eyedea. I imagine they've got a fairly tight release schedule.

actually i wouldnt quote me on that. but freeway is coming out with an album caleld "diamond in the ruff" no idea what label it'll be on, im seeing rumors of his Free money imprint from Cash money, RSE, G Unit Philly (???), and even a roc-a-fella reunion. but beautiful music and escalator are two tracks leaked so far, and theyre great.

I think the best stuff is the straight rapping stuff, like "Radio-Inactive," "Keep Bouncing," and "Go Hard Or Go Home." Of course, two of those tracks I'd heard months ago. Of the tracks with him singing, the ones that have grabbed me or "Stole Our Yesterday" and "The Other Side." Some of the other stuff just didn't really sound that special on first listen.

So I'm going give it a few more listens today to get a better feel for it. Then I can get a better sense of it.

In response to Reply # 15


  

          

Sometimes it's him just singing the choruses, sometimes it's him singing the entire time, and sometimes, like on "The Other Side," he sings a verse or two, than raps a verse.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

His recent output has been so boring and repetitive that it amazes me. Ever since he stopped using loops or whatever he decided to do with his sampling methods, it has all gone downhill. All he seems to do now days is try to play 4 different variations of the same electronic stuff on a keyboard over and over again.

Both new Greenhouse Effect EP's sound exactly the same more or less when it comes to production and so does Adventures in Counter Culture. When it comes to rapping he doesn't even seem too interested in switching it up as of lately as he did earlier in his career, now days it's always the same monotone slow guy.

I hate to say it but Blueprint went from automatic check for me to maybe I won't waste my time.
