Album Review

Anthony Martin, who raps under the name Awol One, formed a partnership with DJ and producer Factor shortly after the two met while the former was on tour in Canada, and the two have forged a strange and borderline-unique brand of progressive hip-hop. Owl Hours features a large number of guest musicians and rappers including Xzibit (who shines particularly on the brilliant but nasty "Brains Out"), Tash, E-swift, and Sunspot Jonz, among others. At its best, the album blends rock and hip-hop elements in a charmingly unselfconscious, at times nearly goofy manner: "Glamorous Drunk" and "Stand Up" are particularly powerful examples of this loose collective at its strongest. At other points, the strengths and weaknesses don't line up quite so perfectly: on "Destination" Awol One's geeky delivery starts coming across as somewhat affected, and the two-chord instrumental track is downright dumb, as are the nyah-nyah-nyah backing vocals. His flow is rather awkward on "Back Then," but that track is otherwise quite good, and just about everything else offers a similarly mixed bag of the great and the perplexing. But you get extra points just for being original in this field, and Awol One is certainly that.

Customer Reviews

The Awolrus and Factor represent again!

Just like their last colabo, this album does not disappoint. Awol One has been dropping the fresh lyrics for years as a member of the legendary Shapeshifters crew and continues to impress with his latest effort. Factor has become a real force to be reckoned with and provides rythmic and addictive beats that provide the perfect medium for a serious lyricist like Awol. This is underground hip hop at its finest. Awol One is kinda like your favorite rapper's favorite rapper of all time suckers! Support underground hip hop son!

Awol has been in the game a while, and proves he just keeps getting better

Awol and Factor go together like syrup on pancakes- all over that shiz. The beats Factor puts together on this album are really nice and refreshing and Awol brings his classic complex rhymes and thoughts together in way that are melodic yet raw. This whole album is nice, so don't even worry about copping the individual tracks, buy the whole thing- at a shop if you can- and play it for your girl that looks sexy in tube socks.
