Various Artists Anticon Label Sampler: 1999-2004
- Words: Susanna Bolle
- Label: Anticon
For those not already familiar with Anticon, this budget-priced compilation provides an excellent primer, collecting tracks by the label's extended stable of artists, from the fantastic, absurdist rhymes of Themselves to the acerbic rants of Sole. Despite many sublime moments, Anticon releases have always walked a very fine line between clever and whiny/pretentious, which means this is ultimately a mixed bag.
