A welcomed return from the one of the finest and most innovative hip-hop groups of all time. As a part of the legendary Solesides crew with Shadow and Latyrx they wrote the script for independent, artist-led, underground west coast hip-hop labels in the 1990's.
This album is amazing, and has truly lived up to all of my highest expectations. Still deeply rooted in the dirty funk sound of San Fransico's rich musical heritage, there is a definate nod to Sly/Parliament etc (with an appearance from Clinton on 'Lotus Flower').
One of the most original tracks, taking it back the essence of the 'battle' is egosonice wardrums. Peace and Gab go to head to head in a blistering barrage of spitting that is really something special. World Of Vibrations Supreme People, Rhythm Sticks, Lotus Flower, My Pen And Pad, Side To Side, Automatique and Your Move are all also classics, adding new dimension and flavour to the Blackalious canon.
Inspirational, highly motivational.
