Gorgeous laid back beats reminiscent of Mos Def's recordings on Rawkus and in Blackstar - the remix of Respiration from those days is lovely. This is not as complex in its orchestration and sampling as The Ecstatic - but this simplicity is what makes this a beautiful hip-hop record. If you liked Blackstar, or Common's "Resurrection" you will like this. Buy it.

also, it's worth pointing out that this compliation has been floating around in other forms (vinyl, cd, internet) for approximately a decade... this label just got hold of the rights and is trying to cash in. mos won't get any money from this
