Method Man - Tical

Pretty sweet album, something about Meth's voice that just makes you feel cooler. One of my favorite changed lyrics in the Mannequin Men van is: "Where's that show you dudes are playin? DE KALLLLLLB" that'll make you feel pretty lame. It's all about checks and balances.

Jake Thackray-La Di Dah

A little weird, yes, but amazing nonetheless. Such a smartass has never been witnessed before. A gruesomely talented guitar player and arranger, those only being trumped by his lyrical genius, Jake is a man among boys. The closest thing I can compare him to is an american Brel...but better. I don't know really what this comp is from, but it's pretty good. Great album to cook to, and sit around to, especially this time of year. Give it a couple spins, it's a grower.
