Musician, Poet, Actor and Writer Saul Williams follows up 2007's "The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust!" with his fourth studio album "Volcanic Sunlight" and it shows that as always Williams is not your typical hip hop/rapper as he cares little for trends and is more focused on spreading his word through music and this time he has even added elements of pop!

Where as the Trent Reznor produced "The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust!"(lets hope the rumours of niggy 2 are true) was full of big beats and powerful vocals "Volcanic Sunlight" almost shows Williams softer side. One listen to the title track will prove this as Williams delivers one of his catchiest tracks yet. "Girls Have More Fun" has a beat the Beastie Boys would be proud of, it seems Saul wanted to have a bit of fun to go with his serious side. "Dance" is a funk filled track and contains a sample from "Disco '82" which was featured in the Bollywood movie "Khud-Daar", it works brilliantly.

People who fear that Saul might be going soft, fear not as one listen to the explosive "Explain My Heart" will show as it contains all the elements that make us love Saul in the first place, a hard hitting vocal over some big beats, "Rocket", "Diagram" and "Patience" are all tracks that will become stand out tracks on the album.

While on the first couple of listens it might seem Saul might have lost his hard hitting edge, a few listens will prove that wrong and show what a great diverse album this is. After all Saul has never been one to rest on his laurels, anybody who has seen him live will attest to that, whether it be rocking it with a full band or just him and a DJ, Saul always gives 100%. At least we know he means and cares what he raps and rhymes about!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most creative voices in hip hop! 3 Dec. 2012
By darkrider1 - Published on

I cant believe I'm a year late on buying this cd, but then again I guess I could believe it with the bullshit the music industry is pushing nowadays.I have to say this is one of the most creative albums I've heard from Saul and I have all his previous cds, and all his cds are great in their own right, but this one goes well beyond musical boundaries, like the way P.M. Dawn did back in the early 90s, who were also ahead of their time, also Andre 3000 and Boots Riley are great aswell, but Saul is on a whole other level lyrically and his hormanizing even sounds cool,it doesnt sound forced like how pharrels hormanizing vocals sound, then Saul has a incredible back up band, you could easily put his band with alot of jazz fusion greats aswell as certain acid jazz bands like groove collective or soulive,they also have a soulful rock sound reminicent of Lenny Kravitz's band with a dash of afro-beat sprinkled on top.Its a crime for this album not to be heard in mainstream America,really really saaaad! But all in all this is a excellent album that the whole world should hear along with dead prez, brother ali and etc., so people wont look down on American hip hop thinking it lost its edge, and with everything in mainstream music sounding the same, the great Saul Williams would be a breath of fresh air to the polluted current state of hip hop.

5.0 out of 5 stars a perfect album 4 April 2012
By spaceboy - Published on

This album is a masterpiece.

I purchased it about 2 months ago, and haven't been able to listen to anything else since. I came to it as a casual listener, since I only heard Niggy Tardust from Saul Williams before (and I wasn't that blown away by it to be honest), so I was quite surprised just how much I actually LOVED this record!

It seems like he instinctively got rid of all the things I disliked in Niggy -mainly the negativity- and made a very honest, simple and positive album. And it's great to dance to! It's a breath of fresh air. Highly recommended.

Kanye's recent SNL performances reminded me how awesome and creatively superior Saul Williams is, which led me to revisit this album. I downloaded it and have been bopping my head, clapping, and air drumming ever since. I love "Patience," "Fall Up" and "Explain My Heart," to name a few.
