Crate Digging: Shine Through

by Aloe Blacc
It's been quite a while since I listened to this entire album from start to finish, and I have to say that I think it's even better than I remember it being.

I'm still not familiar with Aloe Blacc's work with Exile in Emanon (although I really should check for that), and this album was really my first exposure to him as an artist.

I love this cd. Aloe Blacc is equally skilled as a rapper, producer, and singer. The songs on here are beautiful, and show a huge range of styles and skill. The Spanish songs make me wish I spoke the language, and much of this album makes me wish I was in a Panamanian bar dancing with a beautiful lady.

It's way beyond time for a follow-up album to appear.
