  • Credits
    ProducerR. Krohn

    Audio Mixer: Jim Bottari.
    Recording information: The Dustbowl, Philadelphia, PA.
    Having departed from the Def Jux label, the DJ/producer/turntablist behind the indie rap outfit Mhz and former golden boy of El-P's label, has also made a marked departure from his previous work on this 2007 release. The Columbus, Ohio, native's third solo album sees him personally handling all the instrumentation (vocals, too) in a 15-track moody pop effort that takes more cues from Blur and Beck than from Cut Chemist or DJ Shadow.

  • Critic Reviews
    Q (p.122) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "'Reality' has echoes of both Elbow and Beck, while the excellent 'Have Mercy' chugs along like a Funkadelic version of the Eagles. An unexpected treat."
    Alternative Press (p.192) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "Musically, RJ still feeds us with flourishes of hip-hop....The record is doused with warm synths, acoustic guitars and bits of piano."
    CMJ (p.40) - "Underneath the squelching, glossy keyboards and laid-back, blue-eyed soul vocals, the emphasis is still on rhythm."
