EL-P
EL-P
el-p's latest transmission from the frontline is an aunt jemima-thick, front-to-back instant classic, welding the sort of noise the Bomb Squad once specialized in to the precision-crafted rhyme schemes that made his former outfit, Company Flow, so special. Already the best hip-hop release of 2007, and it ain't even close." 4/5 stars URB MAGAZINE SAYS: "El-P's production often lives and grows unpredictably on it's own. There's a biological weapon mutation taking place all over this record, and yet, it's the moments of humanity that'll freeze out the haters." 4/5 stars BIG CHEESE MAGAZINE: "All punching beats, bass tremors and synth hits..." 4.5 out of 5 SPIN MAGAZINE SAYS: "I'll Sleep When You're Dead's blood type is B-boy-positive, but it's imbued with EL's ever-changing moods and styles. Equal parts faithful-but-twisted boom bap ("EMG") and avant-indie rock (the epic, Mars Volta-guested "Tasmanian Pain Coaster"), the album drips with elbow grease."
