This is a brilliant final album. I don’t know too much about the mans work to be honest, but loved a few songs I heard of this when it came out. The album itself is quite short, is full of synth, and dark in tone. The spoken word interludes work well to tie the thing together. His voice is a distinct strained instrument which he uses to good effect. I am a sucker for singers that are all about delivery, and Gil delivers it with gusto.

Picks:
- New York is killing me
- Me and the devil
- I’m new here
- Running

This LP is incredible. The production, mastering, everything. Gil Scott-Heron's last project to be released while he was still alive. This album acts like a collage of his life's works, and even a tip-of-the-hat to his deserved title of one of the inadvertant founders of the sound and essence of hip hop. If you like anything at all that he did on previous works, this needs to be in your collection.

Easily the most played album in my store for 2/3 years, stunning from beginning to end. Sad there'll be no more but what a way to sign out.

Great return for the great Gil Scott Heron.This whole project is a winner from start to finish and one of the reasons Gil is still a talent more than 16 years after the release of Spirits in 1994.The stand out tracks for me are On Coming From A Broken Home(parts 1 and 2),Me and the devil and New York is Killing Me with there modern production values.The song that i love the most is the dreamy My Cloud the last song on the bonus record, it sounds like it could have been from from a early 70`s Flying Dutchman Session.All i can say it madee the lp for me.
