It's getting a lot of buzz though. There's a dope little Weezy verse on one track. That much I know. But is this an album for the good kid mAAd city/Yeezus era, or is it another tired Dj Mustard banger record?

If this were two years ago, and neither of those albums had come out, this album would be totally uninteresting and probably not really worth listening to.
But with a new bar set for major releases, YG set his aims a bit higher where say... Schoolboy really didn't. While the MC'ing isn't terribly innovative or even that interesting, the album manages to hold a concept very well throughout which makes it a compelling listen. The beats slap, but there's a sonic template that sort of allows the album to move between tracks pretty smoothly.
It's not a general hip-hop masterpiece by any means, but it's definitely gonna be YG's masterpiece. If you like west coast rap, you really can't go wrong with this, just don't expect any real innovation.

Think BAD Kidd MaaD City.

Vintage vinyl copy in great shape for 9.99 at Half Price Books. Gotta love that place sometimes.

New Afghan Whigs:
 


This Slothrust record (it's so so)
 


Thee Oh Sees - Drop (Damned if I don't love this band more with each release. This new one is something different. I fear there may be haters. But it's clear why Thee Oh Sees are pretty much the kings of the game at the moment.)

I did not go to RSD, because I could care less this year, but I did go on Friday to all my local haunts and found some choice used items!

 

Got this on double LP for under $7

 

This bad boy was PRISTINE 2XLP

 

Got this for $3. Trying to check out Ray's older output.

 

65 tV show themes from 50's-75

Its ok, there are a lot of bands that I've had to accept this, and abandon all hope for studio albums and instead embrace bootlegs of live performances BUT, I though Warpaint had some serious potential. Seems I was wrong, on their records they wanted to sound more like Haim and less like PJ Harvey
