Thank you for hippin’ me to this group. You nailed it: the blues, but that post-industrial, collapsing capitalism blues, that wtf now blues that hits everybody in the empty pill bottle. you so right about that novel. the great american novel of the 21st century may well be an underground hip hop album, somewhere, in some body’s trunk…

So, as female hip hop fan, I appreciate Atmosphere’s music beuase it shows an understanding of what women go through, Not necessarily in a sweeping, political sense, and there is some older stuff that definitely isn’t that way. But some of the lines on this album really seem to understand how crappy things can be for women; and that is a VERY rare thing to hear in hip hop.

Spot-on analysis. I didn’t like When Life Gives You Lemons at first because I thought it was overproduced (still kind of do), but it has grown on me and is now one of my favorite hip-hop albums. I still think Lucy Ford is their best work, though.

Oh, and Yesterday is the saddest song I can think of. The twist at the end is genius and wrenches my heart every time.
