Anti-PopFluBlack.jpgNote: This is the underground hip-hop crew’s first official album release in seven years.
Sound: The three MCs trade rapid, rhythmic, cerebral, stream-of-consciousness verses over a host of spacey, digital beats that can be creeping, funky, smooth, pounding, robotic, hard-banging, freaked-out and more.
Heavy Rotation tracks: “SuperUnfrontable” (Top 20 Songs of 2009 Candidate); “SHINE”
Medium Rotation tracks: “Timpani”; “NY to Tokyo”; “New Jack Exterminator”: “Volcano”
Recommended: If Fluorescent Blank ended after track 13—the riveting standout “SuperUnfrontable”—it would easily be Anti-Pop Consortium’s strongest, most focused album to date—not to mention one of the most exciting and surprisingly good indie hip-hop albums of the year. The beats and rhymes find APC at their best. Unfortunately, though, the album goes on for another six tracks—none of which are of the same caliber as the previous 13—which slowly drags the festivities into mediocrity.
Grade: B-
