ATL's full of hip-hop, but Listener differentiates himself from the rest of the Georgia contenders with his debut, Whispermoon,. Gritty, dirty, raw and minimal beats cleave to a weighty sound somewhat reminiscent of Illios in its production excellence and sometimes not-so-excellent lyrics. While Listener bares his all in a poetic onslaught of insightful words, his vocal stream can be somewhat forced, tripping unnaturally through an otherwise smooth flow.
