Album Review

A core member of Souls of Mischief, the quartet of rappers at the heart of the Bay Area underground rap collective known as the Hieroglyphics Imperium (along with Del tha Funkee Homosapien), Opio has also maintained a low-profile solo career. His fourth solo album, 2005's Triangulation Station, is his best. A mixture of (mostly) laid-back beats, with varied and interesting samples layered over a base of live instruments, the album is dominated throughout by Opio's inimitable voice. Possessing a piercing, nasal instrument that's as unique as Snoop Dogg's but much less limited, Opio is equally capable of nimble, speedy delivery of tricky rhymes (the opening self-celebration "Viva Main Vein!!!") and a more aggressive, hectoring delivery that he uses on politically charged material like "What's Wrong With This Picture," a pointed diatribe against the lack of independent thought in the mass media. Guest stars, including Del, the rest of Souls of Mischief, and other members of the Hieroglyphics crew chime in but never dominate the proceedings. This is Opio's album all the way, and on songs like the brilliant "For Those Who Don't Know" (built on an ear-grabbing vintage synth hook and old-school turntables), he displays all of his production, lyrical, and vocal talents at their fullest.

Customer Reviews


This album is choice, listen to it in any situation. You can drive, walk, make love to it. For Those Who Don't Know and Fist Full are freakin' incredible and will make you rethink your life plans. Play it for your lady.

Opio raises the bar

This ablum truly exposes Opio's well rounded Hiphop talent. The production is amazing, very loud and hard hitting but crystal clear at the same time. It flows very well between songs and his voice never gets old. Lots of other Hiero crew on the tracks but mostly op. If you like Full Circle you will love this- must listen to Mind, Body, Soul, Drivers wanted, For those who don;t know. Triangulation Station is Hiero at its best..

The best Hiero Rapper?

I think so. In fact, this rap album is the best to come out of Oakland in 10 years. No Hyphy gimmicks needed. Thought provoking lyrics backed with powerful beats for the whole 17 songs.
