From The Black Pool Of Genius ~ Black Sheep
This is a great album from Dres, with a wider range of topics than 8WM/Novokane which was also great. There's a few different producers and guest MCs all putting in good work, including a native tongue reunion. I liked the Black Sheep albums from 20 years ago, and it's a treat to hear Dres back on the scene with an updated take on life now that he's older (I'm the same age as Dres, but I'm not a great MC!)

I bought Extra P's first album when it was released in 1991, and I thought I'd try his 4th album in 2012. The sound is obviously more updated than Breaking Atoms but Extra P's sound and personality has hardly changed. As another reviewer said, the production is incredible with loads of boom bap drums and hooks which are rare nowadays. All of the guest MCs put in good work, Busta Rhymes sounds brilliant. In a sentence, this album sounds like a day in New York city. Paul C most definitely lives!

I bought this album on the strength that M V Oswald does a lot of album mastering for the Honest Jon's label, and I liked the sound of it on Spotify. I was really impressed when I listened to the album at night on my own sat between my speakers. It sounds like a combination of jazz, dub and techno to my simple ears. There's lots of texture in the album, I think new sounds will be heard on each subsequent listen. Definitely an album to listen to from start to finish without any interruptions, like with all good music.
