Brooklyn's finest musical
genius come back with a double helping of tunes. Their double cd has
a cd full of old songs and a few new ones re-done and re-mastered.
Songs like "Year One", "Paradigm Shift", "Riding The Spiral" and the
Method Man cover "Bring Tha Pain" hammer you with Candiria's beloved
Jazz/Metal/Hardcore/Hip-Hop sound. One second you're listening to a
rap freestyle, the next you're tearing up the pit right before you
slow down to the band free jamming with horns and ambient keyboards
and samples. If you're a deep Candiria fan, check it out. The second
disc has artists from Candiria's own label, The COMA Imprint. While
some of the rappers like Kid Gambino and Chief bring some very
talented and inventive Hip-Hop to the table, the rest has
instrumentals and ambient techno which I didn't find too interesting.
More or less they dragged the second cd out too much. Overall, the cd
is worth your time and money.
