5.0 out of 5 stars Get this in your life immediately!, 29 Jan. 2012
This review is from: PEANUT BUTTER BLUES & MELANCHOLY JAM (Audio CD)
Wow, I'm absolutely blown away by this album. As a fan of all the genre's of music that this encompasses (hip-hop, electronica, dubstep...), this excels in all categories and really is the sum of its parts.

The production is pretty minimal and works so well, with its scattered hi-hats, deep kick drums and earth-rumbling basslines. There are some moments that utilise a "band", i.e. acoustic drums, a synth-line here and there and some guitar work, but blends so well with the primarily electronic sound.

But its the vocals that take first place. There have been comparisons to The Streets (and I have read somewhere that Mike Skinner has championed Ghostpoet somewhat...), but I don't think the comparison does it justice. Yes, some of the lyrical themes are similar (i.e. songs about night outs and drinking, etc etc) but I personally find The Streets a bit too cheesy whereas Ghostpoet explores new ways of writing about those similar themes. Vocally, they are worlds apart. I love the slurred but fluid tones of this man, he makes rapping melodic and manages to get some hooks into his wordplay that won't leave you alone.

Love the album from start to finish, no dud tracks to be seen. Personal highlights are 'Us Against Whatever Ever', 'Survive It', 'Cash & Carry Me Home' and the best album-closer I have heard in a longwhile - 'Liiines'.

In short - Get this in your life immediately!!!!
