In my opinion- yes. What do you guys think?
It is up there with the best.
it really broke new grounds with it's level of sophistication, in the beats, the story, and the rhymes.
Del is an amazing rapper, with a lot of flavor and soul.
Automator is a brilliant producer.
and kid Koala is a Turntablist of the highest caliber
It is a very good album
I would place it on my top 10 easily.
REcommended cuts for those wanting to feel some of it...
"time keeps on slipping"
I somehow knew you would say that
I reccomend all that you stated +
Things you can do
It's pretty awesome, but it's no Dr. Octagonecologyst.
I really liked 3030 and Things You Can Do.
I also like a bunch of Del's other stuff, like Proto Culture and Jaw Gymnastics.
But 3030 is way, way cool.
Its up there with Nia-Blackalicious, Roots come alive- the roots, and quality control-J5. Those are probably my favprite hip hop cds.
I like Do you want more?!?! more than roots come alive, but yeah, they are both good.
I'm not a big fan of phrenology though, has some good cuts, but overall it just feels less organic than their past stuff.
Brendan, Proto culture is a great track I love it! del is such a nerd.
Del is working on a new album currently, I don't know much about it, but I read an interview with him and he was talking about how important it is for him to learn the roles of different players in a band, for instance, he's writing basslines, so he went out and bought a bunch of bass instructional books and read through them.
Del's first album, 'I wish my brother george was here' is a FUNKY disc, produced by george clinton, it really breaks grounds as far as hip hop is concerned, clever, playful raps, with great production, a lot like paul's boutique actually.
I haven't heard much of Delton, but I'm a big fan of Kid Koala.
I'm kind of with Peter for the moment, Dr. Octagonecologyst is a hard act to follow, that and Labor Days
labor days! such a great album, have you heard Aesop's latest? bazooka tooth? it's really good too, but it's really dark, and far heavier than I expected, but it still kicks ass.
deltron 3030 is way cool.
other favorites of mine include beastie boys - check your head (if that can be considered hiphop, anyway) and a tribe called quest - a low end theory. great stuff.
Hmmm, hard to pick one. But I can narrow it down to three.
The Roots - Illadelph Half-life
Erykah Badu - Baduism
D'angelo - Voodoo
The Erykah Badu and D'angelo are probably considered more R&B than hip hop, but not in my book.
Top 5 for me.
Has anybody heard Deep Puddle Dynamics though ?
Features Dose One, Sole, Slug, Eyedea. Very intelligent. Very dark as well.
Not many people seem to like Dose One as much as I do, though... maybe a bit weird
Have you guys ever heard Dalek? Curious what you all think about "from the filthy...."
I dig that album. Most of the stuff off Ipecac you can't go wrong with.
Pretty experimental in terms of melodies/beats in the typical stylings of Ipecac. It's definitely a refreshing alternative to a lot of the drivel out there.
Dose One is sick! I heard him about 4 years ago and eas really impressed.
I haven't had a chance to see him. My brother actually hung out with him a few times, though. His producer is top notch too. From what I understand he actually plays the beats live on his MPC !
Funny thing about Dose is he actually talks like he raps in terms of his voice .
I admit I haven't listened to too much Deltron, but what I heard was really cool.
Just as a suggestion, I'd reccomend Alfred Howard and the Q23 Orchaestra's "Kurda" CD. I got it off a floormate of mine and it's AWESOME stuff. Just be forewarned, it's quite political throughout, so that may affect your opinion of it.
