In between drinking, sleeping and flipping White Assholes, I've been doing a lot of thinking about the future direction of this site. In particular, the events of the past couple of weeks, with Mos Def's new partial-birth abortion of an album and all of the ensuing controversy, have made me realize that I should probably not be doing any more positive album reviews at all. I've done them before in the past and nobody really bothered to read them, and I seem to be better at explaining why something is bad, or how bad something is, than trying to give any kind of fair-and-balanced critique of an album anyway.
On the outside chance that an artist were to release an album of just, Supreme Clientele-levels of goodliness, I'd probably just avoid reviewing it altogether. But, I don't forsee that as being much of an issue at all anyway. (Let's face it, hip-hop is as dead as fucking doornails.) It's been a while since I bothered to review anything, but, tonight (er, tomorrow morning) after I get off from work, I'm going to fire up the ol slsk, find some new rap album and rip it a new asshole just for shits and giggles (no homo). It should be good times.
