Review Summary: Busdriver moves to Epitaph, becomes poppier, and drops one of the catchiest bombs of 2007. Quality hip-hop album.The average attention span for a person is around 30 seconds. When you think about how long conversations, speeches, movies, or musical works last the last man listening should be crowned some sort of iron man yes? Well the 30 can be extended when the artist or speaker takes the right approach, it its interesting and hard to turn away from the attention spent on it can last much longer than a mere half a second.
With his witty rhymes and nasally voice, Busdriver has been steadily building up and expanding upon the L.A. alternative rap scene since 2001, when his debut, Memoirs of an Elephant Man, came out. With each subsequent release, the MC embellished his already eclectic repertoire with increasingly off-the-wall lyrics and production (the latter handled by a number of different people).
