Default Atmosphere - When LIfe Gives You Lemons

Ok, i was going to post this in the hip hop section, but it isnt really hip hop, plus the demographic there has a combined intelligent quotient which struggles to push double digits.

Anyway, Atmosphere are releasing a new album on the 22nd, and the powers of the interwebz has granted me an advanced look at it.

Its called If Life Gives You Lemons, Paint That Shit Gold. (which was amusing , albeit a bit corny, to me)


The music contained within is a progression from previous Atmosphere album, in addition to being a departure.

Its not strictly Hip Hop, and incorporates elements of many genres, with Slug sort of singing/sort of speaking on a fair few tracks.

Anyway, i dig it a lot, not similar to much ive heard in the past, but i think they pull it off well.

I doubt anyone who isnt an Atmosphere fan will like this, or for that matter anyone who is a hip hop fan. And i dont think it will appear to too many people here, but i figured i may as well post a few of the tracks that ive been liking over the past few days.

Your Glass House

Shoulda Known

The Waitress

Painting

Me


The entire album is on their myspace page:

www.myspace.com/atmosphere


Let me know if you like it, hate it, think its ok, dont care, or anything else.

There is a deluxe addition with a children's book authored by Slug himself, im not going to pay for it, but i wouldnt mind seeing whats in it. I cant imagine what the fuck he would write in a childrens book

yes, I know the album, but I'm wondering what is it exactly if it doesn't fit in the hip hop category?

it's an ok album, especially if you're a teenager...

Dunno what to make of this. 'Lucy Ford' is dope as hell. 'The woman With the Tattoed Hands' is simply fantastic

First of all, "YO".

Having said that, I just listened to this album for the first time. It's the first hip hop release I've heard this year. I just can't seem to get interested anymore. Maybe it'll pass. Anyway, I think this is definitely a hip hop album. It's not your standard run of the mill shit, but you could say the same about their last few albums.

After one listen I'd say I quite like it and am pleased to find that I actually wanna hear it again. If I continue to feel this way I will upgrade this album from first hip hop release I've heard in '08 to first hip hop album I've purchased in '08.

Atmosphere certainly don't drop that uncut raw, but they certainly make interesting and appealing music, which is more than I can say for the vast majority of other hip hop artists these days.

Just going through it on their myspace, got to say it's not too bad. It's not really my cup of tea but there are some good joints on it, my standouts have to be "shoulda known", "less one" and "YGM" although that last joint is a reused prince paul beat.

It's definately hip hop though, I don't really figure why you posted this here Pat, in anycase I can see some of my friends really likeing this but as for me I think it's a solid album but im not really a fan of Atmosphere and I have a long list of albums im trying to get already. Overall it's pretty good and certainly not as "alternative" as some people may imagine it to be.

as i said, i posted it here because i prefer the clientele that frequent these parts, to those that frequent other parts.
