Everything is Changing

In a way, I've been waiting for this album - for this particular collision - my entire life. As Banks says on the opening track, "everything is changing..."

Existential, gothic romance meets deep, hard-won street knowledge... For me personally, it's a conversation I've been having in my head for a very long time. Everything is changing.

Giant, the opening track, looms like one. It's a song that wants to lure Interpol stalwarts into that now, all too comfortable dreamworld of ill-fated lovers and hapless calamities. But then Steelz is there, rough as a razors, dark as night and - all praise be to the great god of beatz - it doesn't feel forced. It could even feel new.

It may be "cold outside" for Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga but for Banks & Steelz, I think it's going to be AITCH OH TEE.

This record could end up being brilliant or it could be straight-up garbage. Either way, it's obvious they enjoyed making it. The collaboration itself may hold significance as well. Of course it's not the first time rockers and rappers have put it down on wax but, this feels a bit more challenging than Walk This Way or Judgement Night.

Yeah, everything is changing.

SOMETHING NEW FOR YOUR EAR HOLES

I pre Ordered this album thanks to Mr. Throwback Thursday. Check out their podcast right here on Itunes. This Album wont disapoint if you like old school hip hop with a flair of new age. So far all of the available tracks are awesome, can't wait for the rest of the album.

Good Collision

This album is really a fascinating hybrid between two virtually unrelated artists. It is a tasteful combination of wisdom and enticing lyrics that sound a deep feeling in one's soul and that is what music is all about, soul.
