25 year-old Mark Ronson has certainly earned his fair share of raves accumulated to date, with his innovative beats and street-cred. It certainly shows on "Here Comes The Fuzz." The guests really run the gamut on this debut CD, with rappers Q-Tip, Ghostface Killa, M.O.P., and Freeway on the joint, but there's soul (Anthony Hamilton, Nikka Costa, newcomer Debi Nova) and a track with Rivers Cuomo from Weezer as well. I'm not sure what Mark's strongest point is yet - is he a floorfiller like Judge Jules, or simply an intellgent bedroom producer like The Streets? Whatever the case, he's certainly no Tim Westwood. Mark is deftly able to make moves with a straightahead distorted club banger ("I Suck"), as well as bouncy hip-hop jams ("Ooh Wee," "On the Run"). The CD is also great for the chillout room with Saigon guest rapping on "Diduntdidunt". The entire CD is rather exciting, as it forgoes the elements of crunk and too-much-bass that made a lot of top 40 rap this year pretty tiresome. For a refreshing hip-hop mashup, I definitely recommend this one.
