Default Immortal Technique - Revolutionary Vol. 2

Immortal Technique - Revolutionary Vol. 2




Review from forummember Hon. Pat Bateman vbmenu_register("postmenu_197968", true);

1. Intro

2. Point of No Return - One of the best tracks on the album, nice beat and tech brings his classic, thought provoking lyrics in his fucking ill, raw style. (9/10).

3. Peruvian Cocaine - Another ill track, good collabo with CrazyWalz, Pumkinhead, Loucipher, Tonedeff, Diabolic and Poisen Pen, each MC spits fire on this track. the story of the path of cocaine from south america to the US is intricately constructed with each MC representing a different link in the chain. (8/10).

4. Harlem Streets - Probably my favourite beat off the album, sound nice drums with sort of guitar style sounds. tech is nice with the rhymes as usual as he spits about the struggle of growing up in harlem, the manipulation of the people and critiques the hypocrisy of capalism within the US. nice track (9/10).

5. Obnoxious - Not the my favourite beat by a long shot but it fits the feeling and message of the track well, with tech ripping it, spitting about everything fucked up in the world. (8/10)

6. The Message and The Money - this track serves it purpose well, critiques the music industry. tech gets some shit off his chest. (7/10).

7. Industrial Revolution - sick track, ill beat and tech is as aggresive as he gets. message concerning end to slaverey, and the way in which over time advancements in technology will indirectly free people. (8.5/10).

8. Crossing the Boundary - another great track, nice beat and tech is consistent as always, again getting shit off his chest from historical misconceptions to political controversial incidents. (9/10)

9. Sierra Maestro - ill beat, pretty decent intrumental skit. tech says on the album cover " i did this to make niggaz mad at the fact that i can just take a really hot track and make a skit out of it". (7/10)

10. 4th Branch - up there with the best on this album, emotional, aggresive critique of the failure of media to scrutinize the 3 branches of governement. like the beat fits nicely wioth the track and again tech is on point with his rhymes. (8.5/10).

11. Internally Bleeding - didnt really like the beat alot on this track, kind of over done in my opinion. still not a bad track by any means, just probably not as good as everything on the first half of the album. nice, dark track. (7/10).

12. Homeland and Hip Hop

13. The Cause of Death - another ill track, one of the best beats on the album. tech expresses his various theories. it doesnt matter whether you agree or not it is still thought provoking as tech says "i encourage people to disagree and do the research themselves". (8.5/10)

14. Freedom of Speech - an interesting track, the beat actually sounds ok, strange sounds but still sounds good although the hook is kind of annoying. tech flows well in synch with the beat. (7.5/10)

15. Leaving the Past - relaxed track compared with the rest of the album, the beat is decent and would have been a good way to go out on the album in my opinion. overall a good track. (7.5/10)

16. Truths Razor -

17. You Never Know - my least favourite track one this album, just seems out of place in a way. i have no problem with tracks like this but with the whole feel of the album being about cultural criticism and aggresion it doesnt quite fit. some might say it gives some balance to the album, but it is a bit to rnb for me. (7/10).

18. One (Remix) - alright track, not a big fan of this type of beat but thats just me. the rhymes are decent and the beat is bareable with some nice drums. (7/10).


Overall i really liked this album, one of my favourites. the tracks express raw aggresion and present an ulterior opinion to that of which we are exposed to normally, no matter if you agree or not. the production is consistent throughout the album with some standout tarcks including point of no retrurn, harlem streets, peruvian cocaine, industrial revolution, 4th branch and crossing the boundary. the frist half of the album is near classic but for me the second half could have been better.

Overall score = 8/10

Bangin political but also paranoid hiphop music. Some hot joints and crazy beats on this disc. Peruvian Cocaine is just a perfect beat. Emotions go deep in You Never Know and Bush and the white house gets decapitated on The Cause of Death and 4th Branch. Too much paranoid imo, Technique thinks there is more freedom in Iraq than in USA.

7/10
