Something Wicked This Way Comes....Indeed!, 27 Feb 2003
I've only just purchased this CD, but already it has become my most highly adored of all time. I'm new to the 'Ninja Tune' label, but this album certainly does it justice. Something Wicked This Way Comes has a little something for everyone.
Whether it be the chilled out and euphoric sound of 'Something Wicked' which features the haunting vocals of 'Seeming To.' or it's incredibly funky 'Turnaround' this CD is simply...Amazing. The Herbalizer do justice to their already distinguished 'jazzy' sound with the enlightening 'Unsung song' and the truly superb 'Battle of Bongo Hill'.
This album also features some of the most talented MC's from both U.K and U.S hip-hop. Phi-life Cypher demonstrate yet again that they have some of the smoothest and fastest mic skills to date in the amazing 'Distinguished Jamaican English' and 'Blade' gives them a good run for their money with his unique lyrical content in 'Time 2 Build'
If hip-hop is your thing, then buy this! If funk is what you like, then buy this! If you feel you need a new, refreshing sound to keep your ears smiling then make sure 'Something Wicked This Way Comes' is soon to be a member of your Cd collection.
