    DoCE I’m back

    Throughout the past 20+ years Atmosphere has put out consistently good music. This most recent album of the hardworking underground rap group is a departure from there more recent stuff, but brings it back to the simple times. Which is a great thing in my opinion. The songs may not be to everyone’s taste, but the 80’s sounding synth throughout reminds me of growing up. So take it with a grain of salt. Me being born in the 80’s, and a fan of atmosphere for about 20 years this album seems to be dedicated to someone like me. The one major negative is the length. It is barely 30 minutes with just 10 songs but it’s definitely something you should give a listen to.

    Atmosphere is great... I recall a young @WPG calling slug the best rapper alive.

    thank you DoCe, I didn't know they had a new tape coming out, and I'm currently listening to it, it's great and refreshing! I think I hadn't liked an atmosphere album this much on first listen since Lemons (even though I'm a huge, huge fan of Ant's work on Southsiders)

    I was actually wondering if this is considered a good Atmosphere album from their fans perspective. I'm not a huge fan of theirs, I have like one song of theirs in my library but I'm a sucker for horror inspired music. I love the production and consistency on it, the synth vibes really make it something else, at first I thought only the title would be related to it considering the release date but it's really good.

    It’s hard for me say. I was huge into the whole Rhymesayers realm once upon a time but it’s also probably been 10 years since I’ve heard an atmosphere song. I’ll check this out and get back to you
