Top Customer Reviews
The finest battle track on the album, "When the Beat Comes In", showcases a rhyming skill that goes a long way towards proving his claim that he "has few equals and no superiors". That might not be completely true but that it's not too hard to swallow is as good a compliment as can be paid given how common a claim that is. His explorations through the darker side of life are well done and at times effectively disturbing. The upbeat, absurdly happy beats laid by Ant on "Prince Charming" contrast brilliantly with the dark revelation of a love interest becoming a stalker. His cut about domestic violence, "Dorian", is solid but doesn't quite go into the depth that the M.C. (Master of Commentary) Boots Riley might but it remains an effective track. The album is not without its missteps (He rhymes "Hell" with "Hell" for example, how very Jay-Z) but they are few and far in between.
Slug from Atmosphere makes two appearances as the only guest on the album hits effectively on both. The beats by Ant are solid throughout and on a few tracks exceptional. His style varies wildly but the album flows perfectly in spite of it. He does a kind of jazzy DJ Premier impression on "Blah, Blah, Blah". The driving, scratch-heavy beats for "B*tchslap!" compliment the intense lyrics of the track as good as could be done.Read more ›
My friend turned me on to Atmosphere a few years ago, and I instantly grappled on. Brother Ali has been no different. His rhymes flow over the beats with einstein like intelligence. You won't find the constant shout-out's to his crew; (a..hem, G-unit) only carefully constructed rhymes and flows ("I flipped your eviction notice over wrote song on it"). The album is produced masterfully; the beats are catchy, dark, and unique. The opening track "Room With A View" gives you the dark view of his neighborhood, life, and culture. Six tracks later Ali has you dancing with funk on "Blah Blah Blah".
In summary this album is a must have. I found myself fading out on the last few tracks, but other than that you'll be playing this one for months to come!

This has become one of my favorite albums. Brother Ali showcases top notch lyricism and Ant's production is on point from track to track. No skippable tracks, damn near perfect. Read morePublished 24 months ago by F. Darwiche
