Overrated maybe but still great. I remember liking Halftime but don't remember. I think the other two are overrated maybe simply because people can't be bothered to listen to a whole album when the first few tracks are great.

Anyway, I checked myself and was wrong. Halftime is great as well

None of it's overrated to me. I knew nothing about it before the first time I heard it, so I only have my own impressions to go on. And it's not like I ever hear any of the songs anywhere but coming out of my own speakers.

Dabrye - two/three and one/three

Normally given some ****ty description like 'Future Hop' (Though I can see where they're coming from) they're both pretty great albums all the same. 2/3 utilises a lot of emcees, 1/3 is more instrumental. Both got some pretty great moments either way.

same thing happened to me. be sure to grab drums and wires.

Ahh yes, Dabrye. Along with Prefuse 73, these guys pretty much invented glitch hop - probably called future hop at the time.

I was going through my music collection and realized that I had some Hendrix. As cliche of a choice this may seem this is one of the best debut's from the 60's. Great toons!

Didn't even discover these guys until recently, and my mind was blown.
