Raising the bar for hip hop,
This review is from: Rising Tied, The [CD/DVD] (Audio CD)
I think this is going to become a classic album, like things fall apart by the roots and the score by the fugees. Mike Shinoda and his Fort Minor crew have raised the bar for concious hip hop with this and music like this is needed, there is not enough intelligence in music today. The track Kenji made me cry, it is so raw with emotion and it touches on a piece of history that is largely ignored.
I admit I am a Linkin Park fan but me liking Mike Shinoda's previous music has nothing to do with loving this album. He is incredibly talented, the music industry needs more people like him, willing to cross genre and do it well.
If you are considering getting this album, please do, we need to support real talent and good music.
