Album Review

Lively hippies and pop-rap hip-hoppers Arrested Development were not on the über-cool list in 2007 when their Since the Last Time album landed on most shores (Japan got in 2006 because the country never gave up on this little act that could). Suing the beloved Arrested Development television show over name rights and appearing on the "where are they now and have they no shame?" series Hit Me Baby One More Time made this 15-year-old act seem like it was better off forgotten, which is why Since the Last Time is such a shock. Once the listener gets past the opening title track — a history lesson in song that's best left for longtime fans — the album opens up into a hook-filled world of positive, effervescent songs that are intoxicating in a sunshine way, as if the jam band attitude invaded hip-hop. "Miracles" is an instantly gripping slice of fast funk that captures that same Sly Stone magic the band caught on their 1992 track "People Everyday." More warm memories of AD's debut album are brought on by "Sunshine" and "Stand," but the hyperkinetic "I Know I'm Bad" is a completely welcome curveball with the band sounding more raw than they ever have. Leader Speech writes lyrics that are as hopeful as ever, with the added benefit of being a little older and wiser. In the end, the only reason to complain is that his frequent referencing of the band and its past is a little too insider for this otherwise outgoing and welcoming effort.

Customer Reviews

Thanks, AD

AD is one of those few hip hop groups that dare to go against the mainstream, exhaustingly mundane formula of cursing, shallow lyrics, and the “I’m the king of everything” mentality. They continue this path of positivism and creativity with purpose in their latest release. “Since the Last Time” is a big improvement over their last recording, “Among the Trees,” and time will tell whether it surpasses “Heroes of the Harvest.” The stand out tracks on this recording are Miracles, Sunshine, I Know I’m Bad, & Caught Me. Why are there so few hip hop groups like AD? I can only hope for other groups to follow the path that AD’s been traveling for the past 15 years. Buy this record and really listen to it.

Save US!

Please Arrested Development, PLEASE SAVE HIP HOP! Thank you for coming out with another POSITIVE CD. These so called hip hop artist nowadays should take a page from you. TO PREACH IS TO TEACH AND KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!

What a Blessing

This took me back to those good Ol` Ninties- and amazingly, They still rock. It is great to hear POSITIVE hip/hop. An awesome contrast from the popular. I love the messages; peaceful, ethical, equal. Truely this group is one of the best. I havent put it down since i bought it, and have gone back to d/l some old stuff as well. Lets shift the consciousness back onto something this positive. Lets drop the negative "popular culture" that is being pushed on us and our children--This is an example that something better, and more positive, is our there if we just tune our ears.

The group was founded in the late '80s by rapper Speech and DJ Headliner, who decided to make the transition to a more positive, Afrocentric viewpoint after hearing Public Enemy.
