OK. I've Always liked it when someone went over all of the different tracks and reviewed them individually, so here goes my shot:
1:Christina Intro: Obviously, this is an intro. That means that it's only about fifteen seconds long. For this reason Intros, Outros, and interludes do not get a rating. As far as intros o, however, this ones alright. Not breathtaking like the Swollen intro on MiC, but solid.
2:The Two: This is the closest that these two come to anything resembling mainstream, but even here it isnt. This is a good thing. This song weaves the tale of two superheroes (Murs and Slug), here to save humanity. Great story, tight rapping, and quality beats. 5/5
3:Annyeurism: Wow. Kind of dark, but it is an asset in this case. The gives an almost disjointed feeling to the whole thing which really sets the stage. One of my favorite songs in a long time. 5/5
4:Hot Bars: Somewhat of a disappointment. One of only two tracks on the disc that I sometimes skip over. I'm not really sure exactly what it is about this song that doesnt fit, but it just doesnt feel right to me. But then I've never really been into the stabs that are the center for this beat. I dont know. It's probably just me. 2/5
5:Suzanne Vega: Another one, like Annyeurism. Sort of disjointed beat almost gives it a stoned or maybe drunk feel or something. Once again, great storytelling going on over hella sic beats. Possibly my favorite song that I have heard in a long time. "Nice lips makin' life hips/ tough so, she fvck slow and fight quick" 5/5
6:Rick James: Probably the most alive song on the album. While Annyeurism and Suzanne Vega are very mellow and The Two is just very energetic, this is the one that makes you want to get up and move. Another case of quality storytelling and solid rapping, the beat just isnt as much my style. 4/5
7:Corey's Interlude: An interlude. Calming, as its supposed to be. See Christina Intro.
8:Another Knight: This is the song that turned me onto this album. I love it. Bet adds emotion, story adds depth, spits add flavor. Top notch. 5/5
9:All I Can Do: Not really my style. Once again, I'm not sure what it is, it just doesnt work for me. I noticed that another reviewer labeled this their favorite, which leads me to believe that there isnt actually anything wrong with the song as far as quality, it just must not be my style. Same as Hot Bars. 2/5
10:Ricci Outro: Cool outro, but short- it's an outro. See Corey's Interlude and Christina Intro.
Overall:28/35 Solid. Probably this low for the same reason that I gave it four stars instead of five- its only ten tracks, including an intro, an outro, and an interlude, so its only about a half an hour long. Still its a half hour well spent, and well worth it to bump and support these underground cats.
*I realized that my first review was poorly worded. Sorry, I hope this one conveys what I'm trying to say a little bit better
