WOW!!! A Nice Suprise,
This review is from: Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor (Audio CD)
This album sounds so new and different from any other R&B and Hip-Hop. I'm not normally into this kind of music but this album somehow has already infected me and I only got it today.
The thing that makes it stand out is the beautiful string and piano arrangements on the album. 'Instrumental'has a brilliant piano line to it and Lupe's vocal over the top is simply brilliant. It might get boring and munotanous apart from the fact that Lupe collaberates with some amazing people to create brilliant vocal mixes on tracks like 'Sunshine' and single 'Daydreamin'. This guy is a star in the making and has already been picked up and championed by various radio DJs and producers including Jay Z. And this is not simply the party bump and grind Hip-Hop that infects the charts tracks like 'He Say She Say' is a genuinly emotional and dark song about trying to bring up a family.
This guy simply exudes confidence and makes his mark on the music scene without being protentious or irritating.
So as I say WOW!!!
