Stoney Jackson is The Father, 360 Degree Waves is The Son, and Good To Be Home is The Holy Ghost.

got this album for Christmas and reckon it could have been a classic if it was mixed and mastered better. wonder how it'll hold up in a year or two.

I lije the sound aesthetic on this. Gives it a raw, lo-fi vibe. Like it was made in a basement.

When Black Moon's Enter Da Stage came out I remember people saying it was mixed poorly. But it is one of the rawest hip hop albums of all time.

That Blu album sounds nice played on cassette with cheap speakers.

I dig the lo-fi sound, but not when it interferes with my ability to understand the lyrics, or even hear the beat clearly (the track Brown Sugar was kinda ugh). I agree that yeah it sounds good in the car, but with a pair of good cans I'd like to have higher quality sound. You can keep it raw with better quality audio. Still a dope album, The Return and Bobby Brown are major tunes, I love the posse cut too

That's why I enjoy listening to the vinyl version because I can adjust levels through my mixer and have sound as clean as I can get it.

Album still badass, I don't mind the mixing myself but can see how some might not like it as much (Forgot where I heard the comparison, but it sounds like they tried to go for Madlib style low-fi/raw  sound/aesthetic but ended up a bit more sloppy). Really makes me wish Madlib & Blu would do a full album together, wonder when that Madlib/Blu/MED record will be out. 

 

50z and Angel Dust get major rotation.

 

Def my favorites on this one, plus Dre Day

I'm waiting on that Madlib/Blu record too. Burgundy Whip was pretty dope.

I remember someone saying MED told them it'd be dropped this year. Burgundy Whip was such a good tune

There was supposedly drama on the Bad Neighbor Tour (MED/Blu) and it eventually just became a Blu tour. After hearing that my skepticism for a full length ever dropping increased dramatically.

Forgot about that, hopefully Blu/Madlib will do a record eventually if that is the case.
