Atmosphere You Can‘t Imagine How Much Fun We‘re Having
- Words: David Ma
- Label: Rhymesayers
Rapper Slug and producer Ant of Atmosphere are veterans of making great rap records. With stellar releases Lucy Ford and Overcast under their belt, You Can‘t Imagine... marks the Minnesotan duo‘s eighth year of music collaboration. Although Ant‘s beats have greatly improved and Slug remains effortlessly thoughtful, tracks like "Bam," "The Arrival" and "That Night" sound like uninspired b-sides-as does most the album. "Little Man" and "Hockey Hair" are definite highlights, but aren‘t enough to redeem a disappointing 11-tracker. Although You Can‘t Imagine... would be a solid release by most standards, it falls short of Atmosphere‘s past efforts.
