I have just received word from my Uncle Neville (who occasionally works as a night watchman in a local vinyl pressing plant) that this masterful rapping album by Edan is being reissued for "Black Friday", Record Store Day's special, autumnal event. Please though, be aware, Uncle Neville has told me that there will be 1500 pieces only, so you must quickly hurry and start queuing up outside your local record shop now, in order to ensure you secure your copy!! (Uncle Neville slipped one inside his backpack for me, though already)

Wow. How could I have missed this one when it came out? Discovered it today (dangit, 10 years later!!!) and this one totally blew me away. Funny thing is I own some other Edan stuff and bought it them when they came out but this album is really one of the best Rap & HipHop Albums I have ever heard (and I started 1981 listening to it as a Kid).

Speechless about one of the most perfect Music Albums I have ever heard.

Easily one of the best hip-hop albums of the decade. Edan's psych-influenced beats & samples from all sorts of genres are formed into funky, funky hip-hop. This album is the like the future meets '90s boom-bap classics. Essential!
