Release Date: Tracklist. Album Rating: 5. Such a shame it's so under appreciated. Sputnik should be all up on this. Lack of musical knowledge. Unless you meant odd as in even and odd, but 6 still isn't odd. Great review! Seems like an interesting album, I'll have to check it out at some point. A neg for that though?
Good review, pos. Your review has piqued my interest. I will definitely check this out at some point. As an aside: That is the single least-warranted "neg" I've ever seen on this site. Album Rating: 4. Great review. This is a phenomenally creative album.
I noticed something really interesting about The Hold recently. This makes it so that his rapping gets off from the beat, but then meets back up with it after 5 of his rap verses. He always uses these "meet-up points" as times to transition to different parts of the song, so he certainly seems aware of how these time signatures interact.
Him doing this fits perfectly with the theme of the song. He talks about how you shouldn't hold on, but instead should let it go, and let it come back to you naturally.
In a sense, this is exactly what he does on this track. I wouldn't be surprised if there are other instances in which aspects of a song's design relates to the theme of the song on this album! Aceyalone Book of Human Language 5. Review Summary: Intelligent, educating and fearless. Aceyalone has undoubtedly created a novel, in the form of music. Rank: 29 for If you look up the meaning of poetry on dictionary. Poetry can of course, be applied to other things rather than just a piece of paper, one of these things being music.
Many people consider certain hip-hop to be poetry, and in many regards, it definitely can be. The dark and eerie beat introduces you to the raw and somewhat unpolished feel that the production exemplifies.
The rhymes throughout nearly 69 minute album, can most of the time be so unorthodox, so complicated, and so quick in delivery that it is nearly impossible to take in everything all at once, even after a handful of listens. While it may be easy to call this a All The Way - Lee Morgan - Candy, it is in fact the furthest thing from it. The massive and over the top feeling that the album gives off is what makes it so unique.
The challenges that you must overcome to fully appreciate the album can be an incredibly rewarding experience, inside of hip-hop and out of it. Ace is at the top of his game throughout the entire runtime, never slipping or showing any signs of weakness.
His performance is absolutely stunning. His ideas come across through his rhymes in a fluid and Hold On - Aceyalone - Book Of Human Language Instrumentals thought out strategy.
As the already impressive track hits the halfway mark, the song comes to an utter silence for a brief moment. Aceyalone comes back after this silence, except this time without a beat, in which seems to be in front of a crowd. The last 3 minutes consist of him preaching to this crowd, speaking at first, asking non rhetorical questions, before going into another one of his abrasive raps. His acapella performance is nothing short of captivating.
Letting listeners know that his beliefs and ideas are just as strong and evoking when not up against a beat. It shows that taking risks and trying new things can ultimately be an outstanding achievement.
With each listen, something new is heard. The more you listen and the more you spend time with the album, the more you Hold On - Aceyalone - Book Of Human Language Instrumentals to understand the genius lyrics, and the more you Erster Teil - J.S.
