5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album Feb. 16 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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. Support good Hip-Hop and cop this.

5.0 out of 5 stars An emotional rollercoaster! July 9 2004
By James
Format:Audio CD
Strap in and buckle up, you're in for a hell'uva ride!
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars buy this cd June 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
shadows on the sun is perhaps the best sleeper cd of 2003. brother ali has incredible presence on the mic and he commands the ears of his listener, which is good for you and me because he is also an ill lyricist. he seemlessly tells intriguing stories and shares the pain, happiness, and frustration that he feels in all of his songs. the reason this record is so good is because it fits so many different purposes. you can just jam out to the beats, which are, for the most part, extremely well done, or you can concentrate on the words and be amazed by ali's rhyming. the cd fits both cases perfectly, which is quite rare. the cd is also quite refreshing because ali sounds unlike any other emcee out there. when you blend ill beats, an ill rhymer, and a hot new sound, you get a very, very good cd, which is exactly what shadows on the sun is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid... Solid solid solid June 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
Pay no attention to the two-star review dude that wanted beats like "Seven's Travels", because if he really knew Atmosphere, he would've said that "Shadows On The Sun" has the same fabulous, brooding beats as "Lucy Ford" or "God Loves Ugly". Not too much to say that hasn't already been said (tight beats, candy rhymes), but if you get a chance, go see the dude live (The Roxy in Boston gets a big five-star review for that).

5.0 out of 5 stars wanna know what real music is? March 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
then pick up brother ali. this dude is deep, he makes you laugh, cry, sing, and dance all at the same time. you know what this album feels like, it feels like you fart, cough, and sneeze at the same time. it makes you wanna jump out a 40 story building. he's deep, he makes you think. he REALLY makes you think. you might want to pick up a book before listening to this album because you WILL feel real dumb. how could you not like brother ali. his voice is unique, his rhymes are metaphysically informed, and metaphorically derived. he doesn't make metaphors, he makes metaphoric metaphors...yeah exactly what i said. this album is nice. shadows on the sun? why? cuz ali is hotter than the sun, he makes the sun look cold. buy this album or you're a poopy head. unike, once again i bash my brains in for being ignorant at first.

5.0 out of 5 stars The albino brotha schools all the fools March 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard this guys name I expected the exact opposite of what I saw on stage, but that don't matter because his look just makes him that much more entertaining. He's hands down one the most skillful and articulate artists on the scene (along with Slug and Eyedea) but it's unfortunate that they don't get the full recognition they deserve. Seems like any dumbass with a mic and some connections can become a big star (aka Sean Paul and 50 Cent) but the real artists that really put in work still remain without much credit. Guess most folks wouldn't know real talent if it hit them in the ass. Buy this album, for the good of the people!
