Album Review

Following an excellent outing with Flying Colours, Australian hip-hoppers Bliss N Eso took the opportunity on Running on Air to both expand to new musical territory and regress to more formulaic material. In some places (such as "Coastal Kids" and "Flying Through the City") they work strongly on their flow, keeping a constant barrage of lyricism that both provides some decent lyrical content and makes full use of the longer vowels of an Australian accent. In other tracks (such as "People Up on It" with Xzibit) they revert to more formulaic rhythms and simplistic lyrics (mostly based around the sex, drugs, and rock & roll lifestyle). Taken as a whole, Running on Air is up and down as a result: when they're on their own and exploring, Bliss N Eso can make some outstanding music; when they're relying on outsiders for help or inspiration, they tend to get lazy and simply play along. Fans shouldn't avoid this one, but newcomers should look for Flying Colours first.

Customer Reviews


I have listened to hip hop for a long time and this is one of the most lyrically and productionally sound albums I have ever listened too. I have their other albums as well but this is by far the best. You have to have this in your collection if you love true hip hop.


I have all albums, I think this one may surpass all the others though. All albums are SICK, this just may be the SICKEST! love the song Reflections! Representin' Bliss N Eso here in DFW!

A driving fresh new standard against which all hip hop should be measured!

I browse and browse and listen and hear the same old garbage. I hear slow 808 snare 808 snare auto-tune "recording artist" pretending to have skills that measure up to half of the promotion behind them. But then, I come across BnE! This is so shockingly fresh like when Lucas broke in with Lucacentric. I remembering listening to albums when I was younger hearing something new every time I put on my headphones, but lately nothing has been better than background noise. Bliss n Eso captures my full attention—their sound makes everything else background noise. A true rare gem in hip hop today. They have set a new standard by which all other hip hop should be measured.


Formed: 2000 in Sydney, Australia

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '00s, '10s

As the small Australian hip-hop scene grew during the 2000s and 2010s, it developed an identity influenced by, but distinct from, that of American hip-hop. Straddling the line between the two are Bliss N Eso. Originally known as Bliss N Esoterikizm, a name that led to problems with pronunciation among their fans, the group consists of MCs Bliss (Johnathan Notley) and Eso (Max MacKinnon), as well as DJ Izm (Tarik Ejjamai). The two rappers can be easily identified on their records by the difference...
