hard to say a favorite...I haven't heard anything like this since funcrusher by co.flow. this is just out of this world amazing. a breath of fresh air into Hip Hops lungs when it needs it most. the mumble raps gotta go. glad to see the UK still knows Hip-Hop Ryan J Griswold
What a fucking glorious bummer this album is. The Moor Mother tracks on the first half are the sound of someone standing on the edge of the cosmic hole on the front cover. The second half of the album is the soundscape once they have jumped in. An all around fantastic mindmelt, especially the second half. Also - sounds great on headphones at 1am in the dark full blast. bcb723
This is more than amazing. I have been folllowing Syrphe releases on and off and they're all worth it, but this one actually shows how soundscapes, ambient and sound collages come to their own when the stories they tell are worth listening to. And they all are in this compilation. olivkon
