The song Digital Cafe has such a profound effect on me. If you like intelligent hip hop that you can groove to for an hour this is an album that will not disappoint you. Contact me if you're having trouble finding it and I can hook you up.Blackalicious Blazing ArrowBusdriver Temporary ForeverElliott Brood AmbassadorWhen Johnny Cash died in 2003 it was a time of sadness for anyone who was connected to country music. However with his passing, the reins of country music were handed down to the new musicians and a new era of country music is starting to flourish. This new generation of musicians have found that blending country's twang music with the hopelessness of Cash is quite a lucrative success which brings me to Elliott BROOD.
The trio from Toronto, Canada bill themselves as "death country", taking with them country's catchy combination of banjo, acoustic, and percussion and adding whispy, gravely vocals and songs about death and despair. The group open up Ambassador with a rather lengthy song "Twill" clocking in a 6:30. The use of this song as an opening track is something that bewilders me, because it has much more of an indie/ acoustic feel to it, something I would expect The Shins to write if they all got dumped by their girlfriends and evicted from their apartments on the same day. There isn't much in the way of "country" in the song, now that doesn't mean it's a bad song, just feels a little out of place and doesn't quite give the greatest first impression for life time fans of country music.. Luckily the rest of the album contains banjo pluckin' and guitar strummin' to pacify even the most pretentious country fan.Faith No More Angel DustFaith No More King for a Day...

Their songs are catchy, intelligently written, and accessible to anyone. This is an album everyone who likes The Roots or any Hip Hop Band should listen to.The Devin Townsend Band Accelerated EvolutionWeen The Mollusk4.0 excellentBlackalicious The CraftBuck 65 SituationThis quirky album is slowly becoming one of my favourite hip hop albums. Way Back When is a song that I MUST listen to when I'm out driving, yes...

The vocals can be a bit hard to listen to (especially Legs to Sin), however it is an album that everyone must hear atleast once in their life. If you like this direction that alternative country is going in, then this is an album that you will love.Strapping Young Lad The New Black
