Herald the return of King Krush,
This review is from: Jaku (Audio CD)
Occasionally giving into protracted repetition and a few recycled drum breaks are the only minor flaws to this piece of work. The collaborations will traditional Japanese musicians have the desired effect, haunting traditional compositions layered with 'trip hop' and 'tribal' drum beats. 6. Stormy cloud (with Ken Shima) with discordant piano rendition works an absolute treat, one of the highlights of the album along with Still island, Beyond raging waves (with Shinichi Kinoshita, Distant voices and Song 2.
Admittedly I enjoy the vast proportion of Definitive Jux work, but both Aesop Rock and Mr Lif's lyrical efforts here are tedious and lazy.
On the whole a very good album.
