4.0 out of 5 stars A not so strange journey, 22 Aug 2009
This review is from: Strange Journey, Vol. 1 (Audio CD)
Ive been a fan of Cunninlynguists since Will Rap for Food and they have, in my opinion improved with every release. With this in mind I had such anticipation for this release so much so that at first it clouded my vision. before listening to the album I heard the brownie song back in Feb and when i listened through the album it remained the only song that I really liked. This was, looking back due to my high expectations. After I played the record a few times over I started to get a better feel for it. You have 3 remixs on here KKKY, Dance for me and georgia. I skip these every time. The dance for me remix has a different beat from the original and is border line cheese. KKKY and Georgia are slightly tweeked in the production department but have guest vocals from Killer Mike, Khujo Goodie etc etc. Although these MC's come tight it isn't a patch on the originals and if you own dirty acres these tracks are unecessary.

The rest of the album however is typical cunninlynguists, a mixture of wit, humor and deep thought. Mr SOS puts in a track called die for you which reminds me alot of porcelin by tonedeff. Hypnotise is a great, catchy summer tune. Alot of what makes the production on here tick is the samples Kno uses on the hooks, various crooners singing all manner of things at various pitches.

If your familiar with the Sloppy Seconds releases then this is best described as a happy medium between that and a proper release. There is more quality control here and will quench the average Cunninlynguist fans taste buds up until Vol.2 is released. The album is a 7 out of 10 album any day of the week but i can't give it 3 and a half stars so i opted for 4 as its still better than most of the other stuff being released in Hip Hop.
