Diabolical Fun

by Illogic (accompanied by Ill Poetic)

This is a pretty standard album without a lot of surprises, but it's also a pretty decent one.

A number of the tracks reminded me of Atmosphere, as Ill Poetic pulls out some nice Ant-style boom bap, and Illogic sounds a little like Slug from time to time.

Generally, this is a solid effort, even if the tracks tend to blur. Lyrically, things are okay too - Illogic is not the tightest lyricist around, but he does have some good moments.

I somewhat feel bad that I can't be more glowing than this, but I felt that Illogic did better on the Y Society album last year, and I much prefer Ill Poetic's solo work.
