It took a couple listens to grow on me and it's not the trio's best work, but Pac Div's
Mania! is still a solid release.
This is a very satisfying album that is unlike anything by blink-182.
As I write this,
A Piece of Strange
is my favorite album of all-time (a title that might be relinquished just a
couple weeks from now
Raekwon's latest effort is a good enough album that for the most part has a classic Wu-Tang sound to it. That said, this is not anywhere near as good as the best solo Wu-Tang albums.
I didn't really know what to expect from this, but as of March 1st it's my favorite hip-hop release of the year thanks to a combination of great minimalist production by Chuck Inglish and good rapping by Chip himself.
There are seven hip-hop releases I'm really looking forward to in March and I'm planning on reviewing every one of them. Lupe Fiasco's "Lasers" is the first.
