ALBUM REVIEW: River Nelson 'The Rise And Fall Of River Nelson' out now on Dusty Vinyl

Smooth quality hip hop without attitude is not hard to come by if you know where to look but rarely makes it into the mainstream spotlight. Some may think this is a shame but me, I like my underground music to stay underground, especially when it's as good as this. The album heads straight into what it's all about with 'Always Winter' kicking things off in an invisible (but highly audible) blaze of sweet blue smoke that does not come from the tobacco industry and does not stop throughout.

The beats are golden, literally dripping and oozing the stuff out of each refined pore. The Vocals are good, if not excellent but it doesn't matter. If you ever needed and example of why music is a feeling, not a product, a fashion parade or a popularity contest led media frenzy then this is it. In case you're confused; if you like Cody ChesnuTT, Jill Scott, Common, Talib Kweli, and the Blackbeard label reworks you probably already got this, but if not then shit, go get it you'll love it!
