Father Divine - Fairly Good, Based on 2 Critics

AllMusic - 70
Based on rating 7/10

Mike Ladd's mellow approach to hip-hop isn't so much a weakness as it is knowing what makes a good old-school groove and sticking to it. "Apt. C2" is a somewhat ambient, airy track featuring a nice bassline that isn't quite trip-hop but nears that territory. "Awful Raw" features harder, rapid-fire rhymes that are accented perfectly by a thick backbeat that is catchy and ominous at the same time.

To those familiar with Ladd’s other projects (Infesticons/Majesticons, et al) Divine shares a similar aesthetic with much of his earlier work.
