As 2007 begins it’s time to look back at the albums of 2006. APOS was not forgotten.
“Top Indy Albums 2006” @ HipHopSite- APOS comes in at number 8
From the “Southernunderground” comes a group effort by the Cunninlynguists that can be considered an awe-inspiring work. They are easily the least known of my top 10, but they have made a name for themselves now. Their previous work had some of the funniest and most clever punch-lines ever recorded, but this album succeeds in what I was skeptical they could do, by going full circle into fleshed out conceptual music. The songs “The Gates” featuring Tonedeff, their fiercely flowing ally, and “Nothing to Give” create nothing but chills. Kno, the producer, decides to step back and focus his attention on the boards, while Natti and Deacon the Villain rip the tracks. The elements of this album are all in perfect place.
