    Quiet Dog is 5/5 and I think you overrated the second half of the album.

    If I'm not mistaken, No Hay Nada Mas is a remix of a song he did previously, at very least the hook sounds similar.

    Im lovin this album, Mos is back on his game.

    Reminds me of BOBS with the delivery and lyrics. I could listen to Auditorium all day, plus its one of my favourite beats of Beat Konducta: India, with addition of lyrics it brought out the beat more, slick rick def one of the greats as well.

    this album is a banger. Auditorium(madlib) is a classic track, 'Rick came intensely.

    I guess the delivery of the hook is kinda reminiscent of Umi Says.

    But I'm sure you're talking about a different song anyway.

    word, I'd love to hear more Rick over Madlib production, hell even Oh No beats would do, I think Ecstatic is a fine album and it's good to hear Mos over decent beats.

    For me it was similar to True Magic with a couple of better beats. He still soudns half asleep.

    Ive given up hope of him even getting close to what he showed on BOBS after this album. Its hard to ignore his old shit for me, BOBS is one of my all time favorite albums.

    Given that, Auditorium is going to be one of the best joints of 2009, but that Georgia Annn Muldrow crap will be one of the worst.

    lol

    Whoever recorded the vocals needs shooting. If they were actually aiming for that muffled sound, then fuck them.

    I like the album though.

    4/5, in its own right in 2009.

    I'm feelin this song the most.

    Here's the translation, I guess. The spanish that i do know seems to match up so...


    Good one
    Thin call me thin but my first name is jacin andante (the one who walks)
    The last name the one who pays

    Listen
    That i am witness
    The beauty the danger is different, of course it is the truth
    The street and the town
    The cottages and the centers

    City quality costs more
    War and life, love and change food that is being kept
    Pistol, the prayer is for them
    Ladies and gentleman
    Family, upbringing
    The light in the distance

    I want and i say
    The good is closer
    My view my house my dreams my soul
    I want to know and feel your embrace
    And your contact show me something
    Amen

    Of course, of course, of course yes
    There is nothing else, there is nothing else
    End - there is nothing else
    Of course, of course, of course yes
    There is nothing else, there is nothing else
    End - there is nothing else
    Of course, of course, of course yes
