Madvillian

Anyone into them ? Virtually every critics list Ive come across has them near the top of the pile for this year, regardless of Metal or Indie stylee. I cant seem to get anything to listen to so I fall on your considered opinions.

Well, it's hip-hop - but I guess you knew that.

The album making the press is Madvillainry and it's a fabulous record. I'd class the style as similar to Def Jux's output (especially Cannibal Ox, Company Flow and El-P - fairly esoteric stuff when compared to the mainstream of hip-hop but hugely inventive and very dark.

I'd recommend it.

I did'nt, but I do now. I really have'nt touched hip-hop music at all and the bands you mentioned Ive always felt alienated by Rap music, although I do have a couple of Public Enemy albums I find it difficult to relate to that style of music, which is strange really as Im happy to listen to US Hardcore bands that have the same coiled anger and frustration. I felt the same about Soul music, just did'nt hook me, maybe Im too much of a Metal head there again I like Reggae .

So Im not sure that Madvillainry is for me ?
