Am I the only one geeking out about the new Gambino? It's fucking phenomenal. Sounds like P Funk, Sly & the Family Stone and Frank Zappa had a baby.

Danny Brown - Lion's Den

 

How did this not make the cut to the album ?! :drool:

 

The french voice sample is a bit too "light" compared to the grim atmosphere on AE, but this would be among my fav track on the album if it ever were to be part of it.

Revolutionary vol 1 and 2 was good. Hated everything he did after that.

Truly don't get to massive hype for Run The Jewels. Some good songs in the bunch but I don't get what makes them such a buzz worthy thing among internet nerds.

Yeah, Konnichiwa was an interesting album, very dense and genre-defining.

I'm not listening to it that often but I think it's understandable that it won the Mercury prize. Damski would talk about it better than I do but it seems well-put together, showcasing UK's youth PoV.

what did everybody think of DAMN? just got done with my first listen and obviously doesnt have the same instant impact as TPAB. I'm not really a fan of Humble and some tracks seem pretty dense so i'll need to give it a few dedicated listens. Duckworth is an instant classic however

My thoughts on DAMN are that I was apparently meant to spend Sunday listening to NATION but instead spent it listening to Mars Volta like I do every other fucking day.

I was worried after listening to Humble when it dropped as a single, and I was lukewarm after the first listen.

Now that I listened to DAMN. a bunch this week-end, I must admit I'm fully on board with the project. Yah, Element, Feel, Pride, Lust and Duckworth are all top-tier songs.
Tracks like DNA, Loyalty, Fear, Love, XXX or Humble are below, I prefer them when they flow during the album rather than as separate songs. I even ended up warming to Humble when I simply accepted it for what it is,
the track is actually pretty fun and it accomplishes what it's supposed to.

Blood works wonders as an intro, which leaves us with the least interesting track by far imo: God is incredibly weak, there's no denying this

as someone who is just now warming up to Kendrick (I don't listen to a lot of new rap), I just have to say that his new music videos are awesome

Album is fire, I can't stop listening to it. It's given me a nice break from Omar-mania. Top tracks for me are Duckworth, Lust, Feel and Element.

 

Feel reminds me of One Mic and Loyalty reminds me of 2 Live and Die in L.A.

New to thread. Let me start off with some of my favorite albums that aren't on the front page.

 

Blockhead: Interludes After Midnight

Masta Ace: Disposable Arts, Long Hot Summer

Madlib: Bad Neighbor

Aesop Rock: Impossible Kid, None Shall Pass

 

*Madlib is my absolute favorite producer. I've dug through everything I could find and amassed 3 compilations. 

 

Thoughts on DAMN: A definite grower. The production is clearly going to throw a lot of people off, particularly because Butterfly was amended with a great epilogue. That said, I'm not a fan of the lead single but I have grown to love a handful of its tracks. Certainly it's less ambitious, but it is certainly not a lazy release.

 

Plugging the first compilation I made of Madlib:
