El-P - I'll Sleep When You're Dead

Has he bettered his last offering?
So here we are 5 years after El-p’s debut album ‘Fantastic Damage’ dropped heavier than Kong from the Empire State Building.

So the main question on everyone’s lips is could he have possibly bettered his last offering? Well judging by the contents of this project he has. The result is a very dense sounding album awash with social commentary and incredible depth of subject matter. The El-p production has stepped up a level and it shows although it’s hard to deconstruct or even define this album fairly as it genuinely stands out on its own and is nothing more than you would expect from such a prolific artist. What can be said is expect b-boy freshness with that technical twist, which could well be one of the best albums of this year and possibly next.
