Crate Digging: God Loves Ugly

by Atmosphere

I'm not entirely sure why Rhymesayers decided that this particular Atmosphere album needed re-releasing, but it did provide an opportunity to return to an earlier Atmosphere - when Slug was still portraying himself as insecure and petulant at times, but was also stretching into a more self-reflective artist. We get songs like 'F*@k You Lucy', which deals with very familiar themes, but we also get songs like 'Shrapnel', which were representative of Slug and Ants' growth as artists.

This re-release comes packaged with the Sad Clown Bad Dub 4 dvd, a mismash of concert footage, interviews, and screwing around from the time when this album was originally released. It's fun the first time through, but I can't imagine ever wanting to watch it again.
