Ok, so Diplo is, as you've probably noticed, being compared to likes of DJ Shadow and RJD2. Well, lemme start by saying this man creates some amazing loops on this album, his drum sampling is impressive and his melody's are usually pretty strong. I would most definitely put him on par with RJD2, but he doesn't come close to Shadow. All the tracks on this album are NICE, but the problem comes in that they are much too repetative and a few seem slightly overproduced. He will do a loop for X amount of time and then create a break, but that pattern gets old fast. I really like the core of every song, but I find myself getting bored by a lot of tracks after a minute or two. Also, there are several tracks, like Diplo rhythm and Indian Thick Jawns, which would be amazing if it weren't for some of the vocalists. I can tell he's trying really hard, and he's talented, so if you're into DJs or trip-hop i would definitely recommend picking this up if you want a nice surprise. I'm seriously looking forward to his next album in spite my slight dissapointment with this one. If he keeps improving he's going to be a force to reckon with.
