Default The Ecstatic

Anyone listen to it yet? It is probably my favorite Mos Def solo album. It is ten times better than The New Danger, which was total **** of course.

I actually was completely disappointed in it. Not a very good album. The only highlight for me was...

Pretty standard album for him I think, it reminds me a lot of Born Like This.

I enjoyed it as much as Black on Both Sides. Got it last week from another site, but I think Dreadnaught is right, it's very standard for him.

I haven't heard it, but I will definitely post what I think once I have. I find it hard to believe it's better than or equally good as Black on Both Sides. Then again it is Mos Def.

Off topic: Del's Eleventh Hour sucked so bad, it actually made me like him less. I just hope Mos Def, or anyone else for that matter, can not do the same.

I have listened to it a couple of times today.....but I don't know how I feel about it yet....maybe I need to hear it a couple of more times....the only track that really stands out to me casa bey

I guess my mind is too clouded from listening to The E.N.D. pretty much on repeat for a majority of the day. I took a break to listen to Ecstatic but then back to it lol.

I love it, I'd go as far as to say that its among the best hip-hop releases of the year.

I don't know- I tried to get a feel for it... and was a little disappointed to hear a few of the same Madlib beats I've been bumping from Beat Konducta all this year. Rather short too. I think I'll pass on this for now.
Life is just blah, blah, blah
You hope for blah
And sometimes you find it, but mostly it's blah
And waiting for blah
And hoping you were right about the blahs you made
And then, just when you think you've got the whole blah'd damn thing figured out
And you're surrounded by the ones you blah
Death shows up... anddd blah, blah, blah.
