5.0 out of 5 stars Declaime goes even more crazy...., 7 Jan 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: A Lil Light (Audio CD)
Dudley Perkins, a.k.a Declaime, is the coolest guy ever, and one of the craziest. The reason for recording this album was given to him by God, or so he says, and if this is what Gods messages sound like, I am going to start going to church, cos this is HEAVY. Madlibs production is incredible, he doesn't do awe inspiring, melodic symphonies, he does dope, down to earth, head nodders. Admittedly Madlib is running the show here,and old Dudleys voice is a bit dodgy, (i.e he can't actually sing) but it fits the commatozed on the sofa sound brilliantly. His high pitched voice complements the bass heavy breaks outstandingly, and the b-movie, saturday morning cartoon and old funk record vocal snippets add a vintage hip hop feel to the record. The album has been described as 'Erykah Badu on acid", but Badu never had samples from kung-fu films or the copius amounts of sticky skunk that obviously influenced Dudley on this record. I have fallen in love with this album, and i urge any Stones Throw fanatic or admirer of odd hip hop to purchase a copy immediatley.
