Produced by Jel and Odd Nosdam, with a bit of Why? thrown in and a Thee More Shallows (great band!) dude here and there all backing up a mid-western rapper who likes beer and football all suggests a San Franciscan take on the Tarby/Forsyth golfing get together of the mid ‘80s.
I’m sure they had a blast but I really want more from my albums than mediocre rapping over tried and tested beat work. Listening to this album, I’m wanting Anticon to get out of their mid 30s comfort zone and produce something really inspiring, something to knock your backpack clean off your back. Alas, increasingly it’s the younger generation we need to look to to take up the mantle of hip hop that truly inspires.
This drifts over your head, a drizzle of beats, samples and rhymes, without ever convincing that it’s anything special. About halfway through ‘Go Dancin’ appears out of nowhere, a distorted drum and grainy sample gem which reminds you at once that some of these people were involved in cLOUDDEAD and along with other early day Anticon acolytes threatened to change the face of hip hop. ‘Cold’ provides a much needed bottom end with pumping bassline but too much of this is smooth sailing around the vagaries of white boy hop.
