Got the new album, and some boots. I think it’s great. You still hear where he’s coming from -it has sort of the "pavement sound." The biggest change is in the lyrics I guess. They’re structured differently and aren’t quite as dark and gloomy. This is both good and bad I feel. I loved the way the pave lyrics where structured. All the layers with bits and pieces stuck together to create wonderfully intelligent rhymes. And I also dig the desperation that lurked beneath the surface on some of the songs. Not to mention all the intertextuality. But his new way of arranging is also great in its way. You could say he’s more of a storyteller now.
Anyways, you should definetely check out the new album [img]images/smiles/icon_razz.gif[/img]
