Madlib is awesome 100% of the time, it only matters to what degree of awesome. And this is probably one of his lower awesome levels unfortunately... which still equates to Muldrow's finest (tied with Umsindo). This time around, Muldrow does a great job condensing her LP - where Umsindo had eleventy billion songs, Seeds takes 11 songs and puts them into a nice, continuous package. Interestingly enough, I find myself missing Muldrow's production - while similar to the Beat Konducta, it is a bit less Fantastic Planet if that makes any sense. Madlib really does a great job emulating 70's funk, and in classic fashion shines a spotlight on Muldrow's performance. But this is the main detractor to Seeds; her preachy, blunted out philosophy takes center stage when it likely shouldn't. Georgia Anne Muldrow is easily one of the most talented musicians around today and is definitely due for a classic one of these days. Seeds isn't it, but is a great record that shows she hasn't yet lost focus since Umsindo.
