messy overkill

EMUSIC-00E5AB73

More impressive than musically satisfying. People that go for hyper-busy virtuosic art will dig this, I expect. But, for me, it lacks tunes or sexy groove or focus. Busdriver needs to chill and/or simpifly his anger-- focus it instead of the manic scattershot.

I used to love getting obscure artists like this for downloads. Not any more, once the Sony deal goes through, you wont see stuff like this anymore....

They Say All Music Guide

It’s clear Busdriver loves the sound of his own voice; his ego is sprayed all over the 18 wildly diverse tracks on Temporary Forever. It’s just as clear, however, that his talents are at least as massive as his ego, since the album has so many incredible ideas and catchy riffs that it trumps entire careers by some rappers out there. A bit of a human beatbox, Busdriver is actually closer to an actor or mimic, putting on so many different personas that the album sounds like it features half-a-dozen Wu-Tang Clans. He races a flute loop across “Imaginary Places,” scatting his lines along with the melody virtually every time a sample breaks through. He’s even playful and humorous on the message tracks, agonizing over his own death in “Gun Control” like Bugs Bunny play-acting in front of Elmer Fudd (which makes sense, since he has at least as many different voices as Mel Blanc). His constant faux-theatrical riffs can wear on subsequent listens, but Temporary Forever introduces one of the most imaginative talents to ever grace the rap world. (Sample lyric: “Go back to Compton you dirty n**ger, we don’t sell watermelons here, is what I yell at the white folks on the way to the gun show once a year.”) – John Bush
