DJ Vadim - U.S.S.R.: The Art of Listening (2002)



An old favorite - a fantastic hip-hop album, with great abstract/funky/dubby/reggae beats and turntablism provided by DJ Vadim, and great MCs on every track. Not to mention some interesting and fun vocal samples here and there. My 4.5 star rating may be a little generous, but it's at least deserving of 4. It may mean a little something more to me as it introduced me to a few of the MCs on here, and was perhaps one of the first abstract hip-hop albums I ever picked up when I started getting into instrumental hip-hop.

Only regret is that these aren't individual songs.

it is very subtle and beautiful. mainly piano driven but with strings and very sparse but effective drumming as well. the piano is delicate as is her voice, almost too delicate.. she has found, in my opinion, the right balance between melancholy and optimism in her song writing. it's her debut album so i'm looking forward to see how she develops in the future

She looks like what Sarah Jessica Parker would look like if she wasn't ugly.

Anomie Belle - Sleeping Patterns (2008)

This album is really saving my life right now with the amount of essays I have to write this weekend for finals next week. So smooth and relaxing, definitely one of the best trip-hop albums released in the last decade.

Kanye's early stuff was kinda juvenile and he's an okay rapper at best. I liked it but it didn't really seem like he was emotionally invested in it.
His newest album was alright too, "Moster" is an amazing song and really intense.

His best album is 808s and Heartbreak though. Its so tight, its so filled with emotion and beauty. Its got blippy bloopy synths and artificial sounding vocal effects but the emotion in his voice is 100% human and real.
The only track that isn't awesome is "Welcome to Heartbreak" and its still not bad. It just drags on too long.

I'm glad you like it (: riverside and brother sparrow are my favourite - in my opinion the quality decreases a little, but it might just because i haven't listened to those songs as much as the ones in the beginning of the album.

i can sort of see the resemblance.. she is quite beautiful!
