Hieroglyphics Full Circle
- Words: Pete Babb
- Label: Hiero Imperium
Having cleared the decks of solo albums and side projects, the legendary Hiero crew reconvenes to drop its latest family offering. Full Circle makes it abundantly clear that Hiero can still sling syllables with the best of them-Del and Pep Love in particular shine brightly on every track they grace. However, the album is undermined by lame hooks and hit-or-miss production; sampling laws have not been kind to the crew, as getting super-choppy is not a Hiero fort?. For every poor track ("Shift Shape"), there's at least one heater ("Classic"), so overall, the album succeeds more than it fails. But it's not exceptional.
