The album starts off with a pretty exciting track in the unassumingly titled Intro. Here, Substight lays rap over piano music while a backup cast adds some flavour with some nice shouts. By using an effect at the end, “Intro” glides effortlessly into the next track Mienenbruch where we’re presented with some well structured rap with a great sounding chorus section. This track quickly transitions to a skit, which again seamlessly moves to yet another smooth sounding track, Up 2 Sky. This almost seamless progression between tracks adds much to this album making it feel almost short for one consisting of 20 tracks.
Given the length of the album, it is probably inevitable that quite a bit of it is filled with similar sounding material. Thankfully, the huge crew contributing beats guarantees that usually not more than 2 tracks sound similar. As an MC, Substight really hits it on the spot - delivering impeccably timed rhymes that are addictive even after multiple listens. Some of my picks from this album include Up 2 Sky, the strangely titled but very lyrical EsZuDemUbe and the very 90s soundtrack like Glaubensfrage and the 11 minute long Outroskit with its eclectic stitched together music and of rap in multiple languages.
In the end, It doesn’t take an expert to figure out when an album sounds great. The rapping and rhyming is catchy and the beats made for the rhyming share that same catchiness. For those who understand german, do let me know what you think of the lyrics as I am surely missing out on a huge part of listening to the album by not being able to understand the lyrics.
Thanks to Substight himself for the recommendation
