06:42 - psykometal So, like a Body Count thing? :P
04:57 - 3rdWorld Dayum, Death Grips begin their latest record with a thrash hip hop track. Sounds really awful in words but they really do make it work.
04:54 - 3rdWorld I really thought it could be from the 80's but damn thats a '12 record. Nice artist but that doesn't count out Kendrick for me.
04:45 - Apothecary Which makes sense in part, as he is from Zimbabwe by birth (hence Mugabe on that album cover)
04:45 - Apothecary Ehhh... different strokes, but I'd take Billy Woods over Kendrick any day. He is does some of the BEST sociopolitical hip hop out there imo. Profound comments on the effects of imperialism and colonialism
04:42 - 3rdWorld Good alternative hip hop track. Sounds exactly like a precursor to something that Kendrick is doing. :)
01:46 - Apothecary Oh wait, we're still talking about hip hop? Ok, listen to this guy then [link] And preferably check out the lyrics as well, VERY deep and well-constructed
01. Head Of The Pack 02. Ride The Beast 03. Commanding The Night 04. Get Fisted 05. Cold Night 06. Tear Down The Wall 07. Commit To Rock 08. Ride On 09. Like A Fox 10. No False Metal 11. Attack Attack [Tokyo Blade cover]
Generally I'd say this is good stuff, though it feels like many of these songs lose their charm pretty fast. I'm sure the vocals can be a hindrance when listening to this album, but for me they are fine, I'd personally take these rather than some fake effect vocals (btw the vocals of the 2nd album sound a bit faky to me, IMO this album has better vocals, more authentic). "Head Of The Pack", "Ride The Beast" and "No False Metal" are amazing tracks, in addition to those, I wish the album had more memorable, old school sounding, shredding songs.
It's not hard to guess what is the favorite track here; just read my name and check the track list and it should be clear:
