Product Description

Amazon.ca

"A.K.H. resserre l'étau", le ton est donné d'entrée pour cette pléiade de tubes surpuissants et sombres. Le parrain du rap français a décidé de frapper fort sur ce nouvel album au titre évocateur. La rage est à son comble dans IAM city… Douze ans de carrière et une dizaine d'albums/BO après le déconnant "Mia", Akhenaton semble avoir fait un bilan franchement négatif. Ses efforts de diplomatie, ses prises de parole dans les médias, ses participations à divers débats publics l'ont visiblement mené à un constat encore plus décevant qu'à la sortie de sa cité. Ou peut-être que notre star a eu peur de s'éloigner de ses motivations premières, du feu originel. Besoin de (se) prouver que les préoccupations sont indemnes, que la "niaque" n'a pas tari. Connaissant l'intégrité du personnage et son attention à l'égard de ses disciples (cf Psy4 de la rime, Bruizza, Sako ou Mic Forcing qui apparaissent ici), cela peut se comprendre. L' écœurement est donc à son comble et les rimes n' en sont que plus percutantes. Le parti pris du pacifisme et de la diplomatie semble avoir été mis de côté et fait place, désormais, à des rafales de points sur les i. Exit les récits métaphoriques, le ton dénonciateur et direct (manipulation des masses, démagogie politique encore, absence de courage et d'efficacité chez les dirigeants, les faux rappeurs, les réseaux mafieux…), voire agressif, est de mise. Pourtant le prince de la Canebière n'a jamais eu autant de style (c'est dire…). Voilà pourquoi il est difficile de douter de son authenticité. Photocopie lyrique de la société, l'album est "black" certes mais, une fois encore, la perspicacité et la véracité du discours déroutent, et le réalisme des textes demeure toujours aussi poignant. À quand l'étude des textes d'A.K.H. à l'école, et surtout dans des réunions d'élus ? Côté instrumentaux, là aussi l'expérience se fait sentir : musiques de films toujours, rythmiques basiques, ambiances roots hip-hop, mais aussi dub et electro (après l'épisode Electrocypher, bombe électrofunk sortie en 2000 et passée quasi inaperçue) le tout divinement produit. Respect au grand Chill, plus que jamais du côté obscur de la Force. --Luc Demont

3.0 out of 5 stars THE RETURN OF AKHENATON??? Sept. 22 2003
Format:Audio CD
His first solo album "Meteque et Mat" was a bomb, then he came with "Sol Invictus" which was ok, and now the "Black Album". I was very dissapointed with this album, I expected more from Mr.Akh. The lyrics lack originality, which made "Meteque et Mat", and all his work with IAM very good. It seems that this album is really a continuation of "Sol Invictus". Some of his songs here like "Une journee chez le diable", J'voulais dire", and "Mes soleils et mes lunes", were taken from Sol Invictus and added on the Black Album. Without a doubt, the best song on this cd is "Akh", makes me listen to this song over and over again. Another great one is "Ecoeure". This cd is ok, but not Akhenaton's best work, his best solo work is "Meteque et Mat". If you dont have any of Akhenaton's solo cd's, I would recommend "Meteque et Mat", over this one "Black Album".

4.0 out of 5 stars For aficienados of American rap April 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
In general, I find French rap much more meaningful than commercialized American rap. Of course, there was good social commentary from Tupac, but it seems to have faded to a chorus of incoherent banter about sleeping with women.
Like American rap, French rap speaks of the experience of being a minority in a hostile environment. Like other French rappers, Akhenaton takes a lot of influence from American rap. There is a greater range of fusion in the music, though. Puff Daddy will take 70s rock and make a lame album with that, but Akh. samples African beats as well as classical or Oriental music.
Even if you don't understand French, this is a good album to listen to as a change of pace when you tire of lyrics like "Move ---, get out the way" "You'z a ho" or "I like big butts and I cannot lie"
