I'm sure everyone who loved 'Dead Ringer' were waiting for this one. Actually anyone who loved 'Ghostwriter' were probably waiting for this one. This album should be examined from two distinct viewpoints: the people who enjoy hip hop instrumentalism, and people who like electronica/abstract beats. The former will be harshly disappointed, the latter might not be.
In terms of being an RJD2 album, 'Since We Last Spoke' is mediocre at best. The tracks work in the usual "in-out-in-out-out-IN-with-a-finale"-pattern which RJ has made so familiar to us. The problem is that the "in's" are flat. Where are the horns? Where are the scratches? Where are the hard drums? The guitar takes some tracks, like the title track, up to a nice vibe but even they seem to fall short. Still, you can figure out that RJ was reaching for new ground, and sometimes you can appreciate his experimentalism. The bottom line is that the replay value of this album is very low. It's just one of those albums that fade into the background - you don't even notice when you've listened it through. Elevator music.
To put a long story short, a prime example would be DJ Muggs' recent solo excursion, which left Cypress Hill fans crying for injustice but attracted a whole new audience for Muggs. This album has very little to offer for RJD2/Def Jux fans but I'm sure its mellow atmosphere will find its audience.

I have been a little surprised at the people who didn't think this album was very good...
Indications of where RJD2 goes on Since We Last Spoke can be heard on his previous releases; it's not really as big a change as some would have you believe. He maintains a steady evolution from one release to the next, so you have to expect some growth and change in his sound with each new album. This isn't purely a hip-hop record, so purists will probably be disappointed. By expecting the same thing out of an artist or genre from year to year, purists are sometimes not inclined to appreciate change when it occurs. I.e., if you're looking for a record to spit rhymes over, this isn't it. This is listening music, and goes in the same individualistic and personal directions that any introspective artist does at times.
The album isn't very long, but it is long enough. A lot of good records would be great if a track or two had been cut, but this record is short enough to prevent you from thinking about that. You do, however, get the feeling that another track or two might have been a bit much.
Some tracks really seem a lot denser and more skillfully arranged than on previous albums. It's a little progressive, and not quite as accessible as earlier work, but not too much so. Still, I think this is what accounts for some of the negative reaction it has received...Since We Last Spoke does require attention and repeated listens in order to fully appreciate it, and while I don't think it is great I do think it is very good, thus four stars.

This album was such a huge disappointment on so many levels I really don't know where to begin. There are no traces of hip-hop roots, no def-jux signature urban beats that drew me into "Deadringer" (and all of Def-Jux stuff), and frankly no tracks that I would ever want to listen to twice.
But perhaps the biggest problem I have with this album is that it doesn't even show any of RJD2's technical skills. The first few songs sound like bad garage band songs (yes, garage band -- all of his turntable skills are drowned on these tracks by horrible guitar riffs), and from there he delves into some bad psuedo-techno beats culminating in one song which sounds like a rip off of Rick Springfield's "Jesse's girl" . . . only crappier, if that's possible. And why did he put the intro on track ten; it throws off any rythmn he was trying to salvage.
This album is so bad, I'm sorry to say, that I had to go back and re-evauluate "Deadringer" and "The Horror" to make sure they were good, that I wasn't just in "a mood" when I heard them (a thousand times.) Well, they hold up, which makes "Since we last spoke" that much more disappointing.

RJD2 makes his triumphant return to your waiting headphones with his sophomore disc, and breaks his own mold. The first thing you may notice on this album is the lack of guest MC's; RJ lets his productions shine in far more diverse ways without being limited to baselines and snares. The second thing you may notice is the variety of genres he bends throughout this 12 track adventure. In addition to the usual soul and blues influence that crosses over RJ's luscious intrumental landscapes, he moves into more rock and new age environments. However, don't let that fool you. Each song evolves slowly, so that as soon as you think you understand the style he's trying for he's turned the track into something different.
I honestly think Since We Last Spoke is even better than Deadringer for what it is. There is no filler here, only a generous helping of what loyal listeners and the uninitiated will love. Some people compare RJD2 to DJ Shadow, and with good reason since both artists are able to compose such soulful and diverse music through hip-hop, but the same comparison always puts RJ as the student and Shadow as the teacher. I've got news though; RJ is on his own learning curve and his evolution is going to be just as exciting to follow. Get this album, you will not be disappointed.
