Description du produit
Réédition deluxe de l'incroyable deuxième album d'Edan featuring Mr. Lif, Percee P, Insight et Dagha ! Alors que le premier album d'Edan, Primitive Plus, était une célébration de l'âge d'or du hip-hop, le génialement intitulé Beauty And The Beat est un collage musical gigantesque où se multiplient les influences hip-hop, rock et pop. Avec ses breaks poussiéreux, ses boucles vaporeuses, ses magnifiques samples millésimés et ses changements de tempo habiles, Beauty And The Beat forme une oeuvre prenante. L'imagination d'écriture d'Edan et son talent technique (il a tout produit tout seul) font la singularité de cet album. Une explosion créative renforcée un choix judicieux d'invités avec Mr. Lif (Def Jux, Bloodbot Tactical), Percee P (Stones Throw), Insight et Dagha. A (re)découvrir absolument !

I See Colours is one of these samples. What a joke he is.
The beats are vast and sound very much like they're 60's-70's trip out music and the rapping sounds a lot like GOOD old school MCing... By GOOD I mean it flows well, it matches the beat, and it tells a story... "Fumbling over words that Rhyme" goes through and tells you just how much Edan knows about old school hip hop...
The only "complaint" I have for this album is something I also consider one of it's strengths... It's only 42 minutes long, which tends to seem like a short album, but with this album, it feels very much like a complete, cohesive package... I guess I just wanted to have something to complain about and... That's about all I can think to complain about... If anything, this could have been longer, but I think Edan was going the route of "quality over quantity" and for that aspect, he succeeded.
This is a strange but beautiful album and I recommend it to anyone who has interest in intriguing and different hip hop...
Now, what do you think of the two combined?
Hard, isn't it? Well, not anymore. Edan manages to combine the head-nodding grooves of hip hop along with the craziness and strange effects of the best psychedelia, and comes up with Beauty and the Beat, one of the most original albums I have ever heard. Songs like "I See Colours," and "Fumbling Over Words That Rhyme" (which is a timeline to the forgotten masters of hip hop) sounds like a lo-fi hip hop relic combined with 60's hooks and sounds. Other tracks like "Rock and Roll" show Edan's artistic side, and "Science Of The Two" bring a Run-DMC duo feel to the album.
Also, tracks such as "Beauty", "Smile," and "Promised Land" have so much depth to them, it's easy to get lost in this dreamland. The samples, echo effects, reversed loops, and other sonic craziness make this a perfect album to sit back and smoke a huge bowl of weed to.
I reccomend this to anyone who wants to hear something thought-provoking and new. Buy this album now!
The album's intro, "Polite Meeting Intro", starts it off with some music that could be from Sponge Bob Squarepants, then with the addition of trippy sound effects and vintage English vocal samples, we end up in The Beatles' "Yellow Submarine". It sets it off nicely. Then comes "Funky Voltro" featuring Insight, which includes a high-pitched swooping Minimoog played by Edan, and also a funky guitar sample. Then comes "I See Colours", a clear standout featuring a synthesizer played by Edan. Edan proves to have a impenetrable flow here, boasting some imaginative lyrics that work very well with the sweet atmospheric soundscapes and soothing 60s vocal and guitar samples. The next cut, "Fumbling Over Words That Rhyme", is also one of my favorites. Edan pays homage to some of the great innovators in hip-hop, including Run D.M.C., Grandmaster Flash Flash, Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee, LL Cool J, Slick Rick, Nas and Ultramagnetic MC's among others. It seems that a lot of rappers tend to make an "homage" to old-school emcees, but Edan simply does it better by explaining "why" they were true innovators, which is much better in the eyes of this reviewer. "Murder Mystery" is a sweet track with some music similar to Jimi Hendrix's "Are You Experienced" with that reverse rhythm, then cuts in with instrumentation that sounds like it could be from the old "Odd Couple" tv show. The next cut, "Torture Chamber" featuring flows by Percee P, speeds things up with a dirtier beat, orchestra string arrangements, and a background Pink Floyd sample from "Dark Side Of The Moon". Then comes the best collaborative effort on the album; "Making Planets" featuring Mr. Lif. Lif was actually the one who turned me on to Edan, as he was featuring on Lif's "Emergency Rations" EP and his critically acclaimed "I Phantom". The production is especially creepy here, as Lif jumps in towards the end at the climax of the song. "Time Out (Segue)" is a tripped out interlude that blends perfectly to the next superior cut, "Rock and Roll" featuring Dagha. Which features some cool crunching guitars in it's very memorable production. I also love this lyric - "My mental fabric / to big for Lenny Kravitz / Who imitates Jimi Hendrix in every facet". "Beauty" is up next. This song is really one of my favorites. Like it's title, the soulful production is beautiful. The addictive reverse rhythm, tight drum loops, and soaring flute makes it a huge standout. I also love this lyric - "I use pens like hallucinogens". It mixes beautifully into "The Science of the Two" featuring Insight once again. This is another one of my favorites (it just keeps getting better as it goes). "Smile" is one of the trippier tracks on the album. He couldn't have closed out the album better, than with "Promised Land", definitely a standout. It's got a very memorable production, and some sick lyrical spitting from the one, the only, Edan.
I see some people complaining about the short run time (34 minutes). I on the other hand, think it's perfect. There is so much filler in today's hip-hop (underground included), that it's nice to have 13 powerful, memorable, carefully crafted tracks to concentrate on. I've spent most of my teen years listening to 60s and 70s psychedelic records, along with a wide array of classic rock, so it may be a bit more intriguing to me than the next hip-hop head, but this stuff is truly unique. Edan may have been paying tribute to hip-hop's greatest innovators lyrically, but he's also paid tribute to 60s and 70s psychedelia in one of the most memorable ways possible; through hip-hop.
