Open Thought Force Of Life
- Words: Ron Nachmann
- Label: Wide Hive
Bearded Brooklyn trio Open Thought breaks out with their debut single, putting the indie hip-hop world on notice that there's a new, serious humanist crew in town. Vague though his positivist philosophy may be, MC Baba skillfully sluices his rhymes on the title track between beats by fellow Thinkers Yako and DJ Center, and Michael Irwin's nifty trumpet riffs. Unfortunately, Baba's awkward inner-city narrative on the flipside's "Cold Cut" comes off a little too imagined. Time will tell if they can bring it a bit stronger than this.
