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.
