Rae and Christian produce another gem!
on 5 March 2001
Having stumbled across Mark Rae doing a dj set at a local club i immediately rushed out to buy Rae and Christians 'Northern Sulphuric Soul'.I loved its variety of downbeat hip hop and luscious vocals and have since bought all the other releases on the Grand Central label.Most are amazing(check out Aim,Tony D,and Central Heating to start),some are a little weaker(Only Child).Therefore I was so excited about this release and i have to be honest i have not been at all dissapointed.Although it does not reach the highs of there 5 star debut it is a more cohesive album and showcases the duos awesome production skills.As usual they have pulled in some great guests and have used them to great effect.Bobby Womack guests on the soulful 'get a life'and 'wake up everybody'and the pharcyde bring their unique rapping style to 'let it go'and 'it aint nothing like'.Other highlights include the instrumental 'ready to roll'and 'salvation'featuring Siron.If you like music of the downbeat variety this album is an absolute must and hopefully will turn more people on to the devestating Grand Central Label.
