Fort Minor - Rising Tide

One of the most assessable hip hop albums ever made. Especially good considering it is more or less their debut. It really gives an incite into Mike Shinodas life and thoughts at the time of making this album. Each song is great in it own right and you don’t evan have to be really into Hip hop it enjoy it (Though it does help). Peace

Very, very good

This album is wicked!!! shinoda doesnt try and be one of those gangsta rappers bragging about everything, he just raps about life and his own experience, which i think is a good way to go. No bad songs on this album, and I only wish there was more of him on Minutes to Midnight by Linkin Park.

I dont particularly like some rap and hip-hop but this is insane. 10/10! completely incredible!
