3.0 out of 5 stars Awesome tunes shame about....., 29 Dec. 2004
This review is from: Madlib Presents Blunted In The Bomb Shelter (Audio CD)
When I read the tracklist before buying this I was nearly speechless. So many tracks? So many absolute gems from the Trojan vaults? This must be too good to be true. Unfortunately it was.
OK you get all those great tunes but only about a minute and a half of each of them, some of them even less. Madlib just got too stoned and too frantic with this one I feel. None of these priceless wonders (and there are loads of really rare, choice reggae cuts here) last long enough to really appreciate them. 100%, A+, 10 out of 10 for the track selections but way too trigger happy with the crossfader and siren effects.
I don't listen to this nearly as much as I should be given such a great track list. This I can only blame on Madlib's overimpulsive mixing which provides for some real moments of genius but frustrates more often than not. This is especially disappointing seeing as Madlib has done so much good work.
My advice? Go hunt down all the tracks that are listed, buy them and listen to them at your own pace.
