tbh I wasn't a huge fan of Vessel. There were a few very good songs, but the whole just didn't seem very focused. I feel that's been fixed with this album which is why it's one of my favorite albums of the year.

Except that he didn't nail it at all. Liking music is subjective, so who cares if he ignores 'cloud rap'?...It's refreshing to have opinions that go against a consensus.


And once again I agree completely with Matt.

I actually agree with the notion that 2012 is the best year in hip-hop in, well, a while.


Really? there's not a single hip hop album from this year that I think is worthwhile.

Cheers Xeno.

Adam: yeah, but I knew you wouldn't like this, or care much for El-P and others. I know we can agree on hip-hop (Nujabes, GZA, Dalek, etc), but we disagree just as much it seems. At least we both agree that The Money Store is pretty bad.

Agreed, there's also no reason not to post a review about how much you like Lil B's shit, it's not as if Sobhi is the be all and end all on Sputnik's hip-hop taste.



It does speak volumes for the genre that you can still compare/contrast such different styles of hip-hop even well over 20 years after the genre got going.

no one but white people listen to The Black Keys either, what's your point?





I get really annoyed by people (especially white people) who say things like "ugh you need to listen to more black rappers," like your so progressive or elite because you like lil b. get over yourself

Cloud rap as a whole is hip-hop's chilwave, yeah, bunch of artists circling a drain, but the hallmarks (808s & Dark Grapes II, mind) are seriously so good and transcend the dumb moniker. I know Sobhi rolls with Main Attrakionz, but that album deserves its fucking due as a modern classic.

Diff'rent strokes and all that, though, and to be fair Sobhi definitely backs himself up well (and the albums he likes are usually v good), I would just like to enter a conversation on good music without the year being a factor/genre as stagnating/in redemption/progression or whatever. We were excited in 2011 and for good reason (such good reason), no need for the critical hindsight wrist slap. The album is good; why?
