4/10 Tom Customer review, 18th December 2018
Taken from his 2005 album Buck Up Princess, Nightmare is a perfect example of the kind of slightly cheesy-in-retrospect indie hip hop purist explosion of the early to mid 2000s. On the positive extreme, the explosion was represented by the likes of Edan and Mr. Lif, and on the negative extreme it featured the likes of Canadian rapper Josh Martinez. The crackling production features jazzy piano samples, plenty of scratching, and hard beats (which is all very well and good), but the problem is Josh himself whose nerdy rap flexing is all technical prowess and no content. In the hands of another rapper this beat could have been a solid album track to deliver a serious commentary, but as a single it fails in pretty much every way.
