Atmosphere-When Life Gives You Lemons You Paint That Shit Gold…

Category: Hip-Hop

I just got a chance to bump this new album and so I wanted to put up a review quicklike. To be honest I didn’t have too high of expectations about this one to begin with. That ended up being a pretty solid way to go into listening to it. I don’t want to bash on Atmosphere, or Slug in particular, and I don’t want to say the same cliche’ “but you gotta hear their old stuff”, but that’s the first thing that comes to mind. It seems that the albums are getting less inspired and providing more of an old recipe that’s lost its’ ‘booyow’.
This album isn’t particularly ‘bad’ in any specific way, it just doesn’t really have anything too special about it either. If you’ve been into his last couple albums, then I’m sure you’ll be into this one as well. If you’ve been one of those peeps that’s been waiting for something to ‘grab you’ like that old shiz for the past couple of albums, you’ll most likely feel ‘blah’ about this one too.
Luckily, Slug still brings the down-to-earth lyrics and lays them down in that same dependable way. Oh, and clever title…I dig it.
Word. I think that’s all I got about this one.

    I’m a glutten for the ups and downof life. I enjoy the happiest moments with friends and the lonliest down time by yourself and I have to say that if you occasionally relish the down time “Gaurantees” is a great song to provoke the down time.

    Music the soundtrack of our lives.
