Product Description

Product Description

The success of this album is the diversity of moods explored. Disconnected is a classic Deadringer-era RJ beat, while a track like High Lights has a funky 70's appeal. Cornbread, Eddie & Me or Supahero provide a darker, hard pounding beat that marks a new evolution for the Philadelphia-based producer. Another element that stands out is the more cinematic style RJ developed during the process of this recording, using sound effects to add drama, and eventually sheer enjoyment. With its wide array of moods and constant attention to detail, Magnificent Instrumentals stands proudly on its own.

5.0 out of 5 stars great upbeat instrumentals Dec 22 2007
By Voyager - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Fun music. Anyone familiar with rjd2's material will enjoy this thoroughly. 'Caged Bird' is the personal favorite track, but overall the record is qutie cohesive and you will definitely think of it in terms of an album vs. individual songs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting. Dec 8 2009
By Dudimus Maximus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having discovered RJD2 on Pandora and liked the few songs I've heard, I decided to purchase this CD. RJD2 produces music that I find myself liking, but, in some cases, not caring for the arrangement. Magnificent City Instrumentals, as a whole is good, but, not great. There are a couple great tracks, but, some of the tracks that could be great just get too repetitive for my taste. However, as is typical with all RJD2's tracks, the creativity in using samples and his blending of what most would consider non-musical elements into a cohesive work is what keeps drawing me back to his work. If you like RJD2, buy this album. If you are introducing yourself to RJD2, find something else by which to first immerse yourself in his world.

5.0 out of 5 stars RJD2: instrumentals to die for Sept. 1 2011
By Dan Bergevin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you like awesome instrumental funk you need this album. I have the instrumental versions of 8 Million Stories, In Rare Form, Things Go Better, Third Hand, and this one. And if you like this, you should get all the aforementioned albums.

On these albums he is up there with my favorite funk artists, like The Herbaliser Band, Budos Band, Chris Joss, and the instrumental works of The Beastie Boys. Fans of 70s era funk music will also feel right at home with these. It's temping to hunt them all in vinyl format, but I'm not even sure they exist as such.

Fans of Deadringer and/or Since Last We Spoke may find these tracks to be a bit more stripped back than they prefer. Remember, most of them were intended to be sung or rapped over, so the sparseness and repetition is intentional. Not that I have any problem with this, but it's worth mentioning anyhow.
5.0 out of 5 stars Pumped for work or Play! May 7 2014

I heard a random song by RJD2 so I took a risk and bought a CD. I really enjoy listening to every song on this CD; which, all too often isn't the case. I highly recommend if you need something to pump you up at work or play.
4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Oct. 7 2013

Most tracks are rather nice beat and arrangments. There are very few lack luster lines. The only real problem with RJD2 is the prolific catalogue leaves all but the ardent fan with a dizzying array of entry discs. 'Magnificent City Instrumentals' is a great collection of tracks for any collection, untill you buy your second, third, etc .... RJD2
