Album Review

The follow-up to Hell With the Lid Off is darker, less cartoonish, and far more influenced by funk and jazz than before (if it weren't for the slightly whiny vocals over top of the opening cut, you might mistake the backing track for something from Miles Davis' fusion period). In a lot of ways, Welcome to My Dream was a precursor to trip-hop, layering hip-hop beats over jazzy breaks and dream-like instrumentation. The problem is tracks like "Killer Inside Me" and "Adventures in Failure": the backing tracks are killer and the delivery of the rhymes are top-notch, but they're ultimately a bit silly, which makes it a bit hard to take the rest of the album seriously. That's a shame because there are some great tracks here, like "The City Sleeps'" and "Falling Elevators." As before, DJ Zero scratches with aplomb.

Customer Reviews

Nothing else like it.

This ablum works well as a cohesive unit with there being no weak tracks. Pick it up, you won't regret it. Follow through the whole album and let each track unfold one after the other and you'll notice that aurally and thematically they wash over you and shake you up and make you laugh each in turn. The City Sleeps is a bizarre masterpiece that is a fine halucinogen all on its own. Killer Inside Me is an awesome and funny track. This is the imagination that was an obvious seed to many later trip hop works.

WHO reviews these albums??

It's not whiny and silly - but that main review sure is. Killer Inside Me is one of the best tracks on here. Along with The City Sleeps. Fantastic album, I haven't stopped listening to it since I aquired it about 15 years ago. It's worth every penny.

STILLS HOLDS UP AFTER YEARS!!

I have been acquainted personally with Mark Griffin and his music off and on for several years (since the early 1980’s). He dated a friend of mine and we ran in the same art crowds. Mark is a very soft spoken and reserved person with interesting insights, typical of darker talents. I want him to come back and top this album. I had lost contact with Mark over the years but we ran into each other last year (2007). Although he had steered away from music during this time I think he still has that same drive that could bring us another piece of his art. This album still holds up and the influences he had given us are still being used to this day.

Biography

Born: 1956 in Dallas, TX

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '80s, '90s

Taking the name MC 900 Ft. Jesus from an Oral Roberts' sermon, the Dallas native Mark Griffin began recording in the late '80s. MC 900 Ft. Jesus' first records were bracing fusions of hip-hop, industrial, and spoken word, with hints of jazz. He became a favorite on college radio with his 1990 debut, Hell With the Lid Off, and 1991's Welcome to My Dream, yet he never established much more than a cult following. Laying low for a couple years, MC 900 Ft. Jesus returned with his most popular record to...
