Album Review

This is a weird one. Rapper Buck 65 and producer Greetings from Tuskan have apparently never met in person, but collaborated remotely to create this electro-hip-hop experiment, one that succeeds more than it fails and, when it does fail, does so in pretty interesting ways. There are moments when you kind of wish Buck 65 would shut up so you could hear the accompaniment better — Greetings from Tuskan's backing tracks are subtle and detailed, funky without being especially beat-obsessed, full of rich colors and creepy glitches. For the most part, Buck 65's raps are almost equally intriguing, filled with unusual imagery and characterized by an intense but controlled flow. Highlight tracks include "Lazarus Phenomenon," "Nightdriving," and the completely gorgeous "One More Time Forever," which juxtaposes straightforwardly pretty music with dark and somewhat disturbing lyrics. On the downside are an awkward rendition of MC Shan's "MC Space," on which the beats and the verbal accents are completely mismatched (never an advisable problem to have when you're bragging about your flow and inviting your rivals to battle), and the equally awkward "Always I Will Miss You. Always You.," on which the music and the vocal seem to be mismatched. The title track brings in cold (and possibly computer-generated) female vocals, to interesting but not really compelling effect. Fans of outsider hip-hop will definitely want to check this one out; others may want to proceed with some caution.

Customer Reviews

Resonates with passion, urgency and longing.

Bike for Three is a collaboration between Nova Scotian hick-hop beat poet Rich Terfry a.k.a. Buck 65 and Belgian producer and ambient auteur Joëlle Phuong Minh Lê a.k.a. Greetings from Tuskan. Together these two musicians – who live on separate continents and have never met in person – have brewed an intoxicating evocation of loves both real and imaginary, requited and out of reach, joyful and anguished, all held together with a tightly woven web of rhythm and rhyme. It's by far the prettiest, most intoxicating rap album I've ever heard. Joëlle incorporates an array of raw sounds – music boxes and glass, xylophones and flutes, pots and pans – into her sonic toolbox, building a shimmering arrangement around Rich's distinctive flow, elevating his melancholy stream-of-consciousness tales of loves lost and found to new heights of poignancy and beauty. You'll want to burrow into it – to turn out the lights, pull on the headphones, and let it transport you into that state of longing that is so akin to heartache that it actually hurts a little.

Amazing & Innovative!

You have to check out this album...Buck 65 is amazing on this!!! The beats with his voice are unbeatable. Just give it one listen and you'll be hooked like I am. Always a great Canadian Hip-Hop artist, but on this he becomes a Star that can't be overlooked anymore. My favs are Can Feel Love, The Departure, Lazarus Phenomenon & There Is Only One of Us. Every song is story worth listening to. You need to check this out!!!

surprisingly undiscovered

i had such a hard time even DISCOVERING this album, despite being a huge fan of buck 65 and everything he brings to the table. cover his rapping with an electronic veneer, and... woah. it's like a more serious, darker version of the postal service both in concept and delivery... but with a soul that longs for more.

oh, and then there's mc space.
