Prolyphic & Reanimator The Ugly Truth
- Words: David Ma
- Label: Strange Famous
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
2004’s slept-on Music to Slit Wrists By showed Reanimator’s penchant for quality beat-making. This time, the slick producer joins Rhode Island MC Prolyphic for their Strange Famous debut, resulting in songs with vivid lyrics complimented by equally scenic production. Tracks like “Artist Goes Pop,” “Box Within a Box,” and “Two-Track Mind” showcase the pair’s chemistry while illustrating an attention to song structure. Prolyphic’s lyrics flow naturally on “Sleeping Dogs Lie” while Reanimator’s tension-and-release-filled beats on “On the Side” keep you engaged. The final track, “Playing With Old Flames,” is the album’s apex, hopefully leaving the door open for more from these two.
