the best "Situation" review i've seen yet  Reply with quote  

despite all the confusion, he actually likes the album... i think.

or this could be one of those "find all the things that are wrong with this picture" kind of reviews.

Buck 65
Situation
[Rhymesayers]
Rating: Buy It

For a schizophrenic, Buck 65 (aka: Sixtoo, DJ Critical, Jesus Murphy, Stinkin' Rich, Johnny Rockwell, Uncle Climax and Dirk Thornton) really seems to hold his career down well. There have been countless imitators, but no one ever comes close. Maybe it's something in the Nova Scotia water (did I mention that he is from Halifax?) or his brain chemistry but honestly, pick out a record of his and I would recommend it blindly. Album after album, he comes out with amazing beats (remember those KISS samples?) and crazy talk that is incredibly relatable. I know I ripped Rhymesayers and Aesop Rock last time for being overly deep and not making sense, but this is the exception. He could be talking about "riding a horse over an ocean of white wine" and you're all "yeah, totally". I don't know, he just ties it all together in a way that makes sense. Also, for some reason his voice never seems thin or annoying either. I think it's mostly about the way he "talk-raps" his way through the albums or that white kids from Halifax don't necessarily need to sound like they're from New York

Actually, this review is totally hypocritical and contradictory now that I think about it. I have no excuse to enjoy this after everything I have said in other reviews, but guess what…I like it anyway. Who ever said being a hypocrite was bad anyways? Who can explain why I hate tall people but like Basketball? I just do. Life isn't that simple and neither are music reviews... P.S.- The Robocop theme in this album is fucking awesome and hilarious.

There's a Robocop theme on this album? Really??? I'm working on Robocop right now. How odd!


Anyhow, I haven't heard the album yet -- I don't stream on myspace -- but here's a few things wrong that I can tell:

1) Buck is not Sixtoo
2) Buck is not from Halifax
3) KISS samples?

Also, this guy doesn't seem to be able to define "hypocritical."

Do I win?

Fecalface, despite being a pretty cool site (check out the Jeremy Fish in his studio vids( has some of the lamest music reviews ever. Worse than the student university newspaper at my school. It's like bad zine writing.

I don't even think this guy listened to the record. This is just...odd.
