|Atmosphere – God Loves Ugly: 3 stars
Precon: Got this right around when it dropped. I like Atmosphere, have a few albums, but never took that extra step with them.
Favorite Track: Ugh, not much variance. The individual song ratings probably range from 2.5-3.5. I guess I’ll go with the first track “Onemosphere.” Here’s my real favorite Atmosphere song:
It’s as mired in undergroundiness as I remember. Decent, maybe a little depressing at times (or a lot), interesting lyrics, but no real pizzazz. The beats and Slug’s delivery just get boring after a while. I haven’t listened to any Atmosphere in a while and, sadly, did not miss them. I was hoping I would listen to this and be like aw yeah why haven’t I popped this in in the past 5 years but no. It’s just ok. I know the Lucy Ford compilation album before this was better and I think the one after, Seven’s Travels, might have been better too. I stopped buying their albums after that, but reading the wiki article, I see they’ve changed up their syle a bit so maybe I’ll Grooveshark their last one and see how it is.
