B L A C K I E... All Caps, With Spaces - "IMAGINE YOUR SELF IN A FREE AND NATURAL WORLD"
B L A C K I E... All Caps, With Spaces - IMAGINE YOUR SELF IN A FREE AND NATURAL WORLD
Houston-based experimental rap artist B L A C K I E has been delivering his intense brand of industrious and noisy hip hop crossed with hardcore punk since all the way back in 2005. On his (I believe) 5th LP, B L A C K I E challenges listeners with perhaps some of the most abrasive and brutal music he's ever released. IMAGINE YOURSELF IN A FREE AND NATURAL WORLD is truly B L A C K I E's best work, the full realized potential of a man who's already earned my respect after years of solid releases. Michael Lacour uses IMAGINE YOUR SELF as a full exploration of sonic possibilities, using dense and distorted layers of synthesizers, bass guitar, wall rattling drums, mind numbing clarinet wailing, and of course, his signature abrasive vocals. Lacour just takes full reign of sound and noise on this album, unleashing horrifically strange sonic chaos upon whoever is brave enough to listen. I highly recommend that you listen to and buy this album as soon as possible. I think this is one of those albums you should experience. Enjoy!
