I'll only do writeups of the rap albums, since I don't think anyone cares what I think about The Oak Ridge Boys. Obviously tho, if you have any questions I'll answer them. Recommendations are fine too.Wilco - Yankee Hotel FoxtrotThe Flying Burrito Brothers - Gilded Palace of SinDJ Screw - Diary Of The Originator Chapter 003 - Duck Sick: This one was cool. I've been slowly listening to the DoTO series in order, and this might be my favorite so far even though the SUC is barely on this one. Quite a few songs on here I've never even heard of, whereas the previous two I at least had heard of the tunes being played. The tape's two last tracks, Steel Pulse's "Mardi Gras", and Tracie Specer's "Tender Kisses" are especially interesting to me since they're not hip-hop songs. I also really dug "Reality" by The LBC, and if anyone could give me any info on those guys I'd be appreciative, since I can't find much about them (though I suspect the name might stand for "Long Beach Clique" or something since they shout out Long Beach if memory serves).Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth - Mecca & The Soul Brother: I'd actually never listened to this in full before, and I'm glad I finally did. Fucking great album although I'm not sure how much I could say on it that's not already been said. CL is an underrated MC for certain, the way he just kinda snakes around and through the beats is so, so cool. I plan on listening to The Main Ingredient next, as I know a lot of people actually like that one better.The Orb - The Orb's Adventures Beyond The UltraworldPrins Thomas - Principe del NorteQuelle Chris - Lullabies For The Broken Brain: A very dark, interesting beat tape. Sounds a little bit like Madlib but with the sadness cranked way up. It's a cool record but I'm a bit bereft of things to say about it, I did really like it though and Pitchfork did too if that's the sort of thing that matters to you. I'd check it out if you're the type to dig beat tapes.The Oak Ridge Boys - The Oak Ridge Boys Have Arrived
