Product Description

CD Description

The new prince of hardcore hip hop SPIN It s clear that Black Milk is hip hop s greatest producer of the moment Boston Herald He s every bit as thoughtful about his penmanship as he is about his production Pitchfork As the buzz of many of hip hop s young leaders to be evolves from loud commotion into hushed whispers, Black Milk has stayed relevant by remaining focused on creating music that endures. He s achieved recognition from fans, critics, and his peers as one of the best producers around, and with his sharp lyricism and stylish delivery as an emcee, Black has proven to be one of the most vital hip hop artists of his generation. This is already clear to those who heard his 2008 album Tronic, which capped a successful and astonishingly prolific year (in which he also released collaborative full-length releases with rappers Bishop Lamont and Fat Ray, as well as producing the acclaimed solo album from Slum Village s Elzhi). Tronic showcased a growth in production technique that few expected from a beatmaker best-known for chopping samples, as his signature drums were now peppered with live instrumentation and richer arrangements

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't sleep on this!! 27 May 2011
Trust me, the title says it all...eclectic & inspiring guitar strings and drums weaved into the beats, complement Black Milk's lyricism and effortless flow. Definetely one of the albums of the year in my humble opinion, if only for the multi-layered and uplifting production.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Solid Black Milk Release 13 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
Took a while to grown on me but now fully into it, I gotta say I wasn't feeling it at first and I was yearning for the soulful Black Milk as we heard on 'Popular Demand', but the drums are infectious and he's stepped up his spitting game big time. Not a weak track on here.

5.0 out of 5 stars So easy to give this 5 stars. 14 Sep 2010
By J. Mack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you're a fan of real musicianship in hip-hop especially the sound that comes out of Detroit, you're going to love this album. With his signature heavy kicks with stumbling snares laced with samples and synth that you could only expect from Black Milk, Album of the Year is a consistent Detroit masterpiece.

Personally I feel like this album is his best work to date. Best overall production, best overall lyrics, this is my personal favorite for 2010 and quite EASILY lives up to "Album of the Year" ESPECIALLY for Detroit hip-hop.

Support independent hip-hop and buy this album and any other independent artist you appreciate!

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Follow-Up to Tronic 14 Sep 2010
By Option_1 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Previous solo and collaborative releases held fairly consistent production techniques- dirty drums, soul sample chops, and light synth lines sprinkled with rhymes that held more ability then an average battle rap but seldom more depth.

Album Of The Year however, is a new entry entirely into what might call "musical progression". Falling back onto a 1-2 of drums and samples but adding a solid 3-4 with live drums (seemingly provided by the talented Daru Jones) and deeper synthesizer/live instrumentation Black has opened his scope of "start-to-finish" album production.

Where even iconic entries like Tronic delivered in quality, AOTY comes off closer to a Jazz album verses just a grouping of tracks. Where Tronic was more of a "feel-good" soul product with a smattering of dark soul, AOTY delves deeper into destructive and despondent soul- with a very satisfying result.

AOTY is not "93 till infinity" hip hop by any means but it is an excellent depiction of modern day Detroit soul packaged for both the masses and the underground. Won't disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Milk's "Album Of The Year" lives up to its title 30 Oct 2010
By Perverted Alchemist - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When Black Milk released the sonically progressive "Tronic" in 2008, he was getting rave reviews and praise for the exceptional body of work. So it stood to reason that 2009 would be a banner year for him. Instead, most of the year was marked by personal tragedy. First, he dealt with the deaths of his aunt as well as Baatin of the group Slum Village- a group in which he took over production duties after the departure of J. Dilla. Then, he saw his manager suffer a near fatal stroke. Understandably, he laid low to gather his thoughts and deal with his personal matters. In 2010, he emerged with "Album Of The Year", a seemingly cocky title, but isn't the first time that it has been used (See: Faith No More's 1997 album of the same name).

This album picks up where "Tronic" left off, only this time Black Milk decided to give the record a more organic feel. He has live instrumentation on the entire album with the backing of a rhythm section. Black Milk trades the synthesizers in this time around and steps behind the piano, Fender Rhodes and even the Mini Moog (Yes, folks, there are rappers that do play instruments). He sounds more invigorated than ever, despite his personal setbacks that he speaks on with detail on the opening track "365" and the guitar heavy "Distortion". He teams up with Royce Da 5'9" and Slum Village member Elzhi again on "Deadly Medley". He seduces a woman on the melodic "Oh Girl" and rocks out on the aptly titled "Gospel Psychedelic Rock". His duet with Danny Brown pulls out all the stops on "Black And Brown"- complete with a horn and string section. The album closes with "Closed Chapter" which features an appearance from Mr. Porter, the singing alter ego of Kon Artis of D-12. If there is any album that deserves to be called "Album Of The Year", it is this one- after all, it is well deserved.

I'll be honest, I love this album primarily for BM's production. My faves? "Welcome" and "Round of Applause". Dopest cuts, in my humble opinion.
5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!!! 20 Oct 2011
By Ashton Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
To me this album is damn near classic. Every single song on this album bangs, even the ones that gets deep in personal like "Distortion" which has a reggae feel to it. The live drums really help take Black Milk's amazing production to another level. I loved his last two albums as well. As far as his rapping skills go, to me he is an above average rapper, he has a signature flow that works perfectly with his beats, and he prove to hold his own with other lyrical masters from Detroit like Elzhi, and Royce da 5'9 on "Deadly Medley" where the beat is spaced out so they can really go in and with the hard hitting drums kind of give it an epic feeling. Another stand out song on the album is "Black and Brown" with Detroit's own Danny Brown, another song with an epic feeling with violins to set the song up and a beat that hits harder than Kimbo's fist, and Danny Brown's unique and ferocious voice makes this a crowd favorite. But my favorite song on here has to be "Gospel Psychedelic Rock", which is a masterful blend of Gospel, Funk, and Rock into Hip Hop, when I hear this song it sends chills up my spine (in a good way), the beat hits hard like "Black and Brown" and has a guitar riff that sounds like nothing I ever heard. I also have it give credit to Melanie Rutherford and AB, for singing the hooks and choruses beautifully and really give a balnce to the album, Melanie's soft angelic voice really helps piece the songs like "365", and "Distortion" together perfectly. And AB's raspy and soulful voice kind of sounds like two people singing together but it really works and it helps bring a soulful sound to songs like "Keep Going" and "Oh Girl". And Melanie and AB even come together on my favorite song "Gospel Psychedelic Rock". I can definitely see why Black Milk name this "Album of the Year", in that it just might be. If you love good hip hop, matter of fact if you love music in general, YOU NEED THIS ALBUM!!! SUPPORT REAL HIP-HOP
