Customer Reviews

Drinking From The Sun.

The Hilltop Hoods are probably the only Hip-Hop/Rap group I really enjoy listening too. Not to say I dislike Eminem or Bliss an Eso and such but I'll take them or leave them mostly.
Although only having heard a few songs from their previous albums, I decided to listen to Drinking From The Sun in full.

Here is what I thought of the album song by song:

The Thirst, Pt. 1: Opens up the album with some classical styled applause and lyrical content about the time spent since their last album.

Drinking From The Sun: Starts with a violin sounding instrument and explodes. Definitely a favourite. Great flow as always. 9.5/10

I Love It (feat. sia): First single and it's probably the most catchy/poppish on the album. I've probably heard it too much and am a little sick of it though. 8/10

Lights Out: Pleasant sounding piano at the start. Breaks into a familar sounding flow. 8.75/10

Living In Bunkers (feat. Lotek and Black Thought): Fast paced, cool sounding beat. 8.75/10

Speaking In Tongues (feat. Chali 2na): Sounds similar to something from State Of The Art kind of. 8.5/10

Now You're Gone: Lyrics are probably the highlight here for me. 8.25/10

Good For Nothing: Really wonderful sounding guitar I think. Definitely my favourite instrumental wise. 9.5/10

Rattling The Keys: Probably the purest rap song. It's pretty insane. Lyrics are good here too. 9.5/10

The Thrist, Pt. 2: Lyrically revolves around the sun and how it connects with them. Similar sound to Pt. 1.

The Underground (feat. Classified, Solo): Reminds of the older hilltop hoods style. Pretty cool. 9/10

Shredding The Balloon: Pretty fast flow in parts. Minimal beat. 9.25/10

The Thirst, Pt 3: Similar sound to the other parts. Lists the name of the artists under Goldern Era. Ends by a man talking about making enough songs for 2 albums.

Really consistent album. Lovely mixture of beats and samples, amazing flow as always and solid lyrical content create a truly enjoyable listen.
I can't say this is their best allbum since I haven't heard their previous in full but I can say it would be hard to create a better one.

P.S. I'm no expert on Hip-Hop/Rap terms by the way so sorry about the incorrect language use.

Hilltop Hoods

Looks heaps mad

Hilltop Hoods are the best

Fabulous album. 'Speaking in Tongues' is a top song. I live in the Philippines and am converting as many people as I can to the best Aussie music going round. If you love the Hilltop Hoods then find and buy Left Foot, Right Foot. It is a cracker of an album with 'I Believe' one of their best songs ever.

Biography

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '00s

Australian hip-hop outfit the Hilltop Hoods formed in Adelaide in 1993. MCs Suffa and Pressure met as classmates at Blackwood High School, recruiting DJ Next through a mutual friend. While inspired by American conscious rap icons like Public Enemy and KRS-One, the Hilltop Hoods took their name from the Hilltop, the nickname given the suburb where Suffa and Pressure were raised, and rapped in broad Aussie accents; their debut EP, Back Once Again, appeared in 1997, and two years later the trio issued...
