This will serve as my reminder to take a listen on Spotify today. I really liked the Rose and Azura EPs so I'm pretty much sold on copping this regardless.

Oh Honey is so good. Need to give the album a few more spins before deciding where I rank it.

Here's some backstory to the album, I posted it ffrom HipHopDX when the article first came out, but might help give the album more meaning:

“The album, originally entitled Chromesthesia, is about the title character, Rose Azura Njano, and her journey to find herself and figure out her own story — which leads her to an interesting discovery by the album’s last track,” Kno told HipHopDX. “Her name represents the three physical primary colors and we thought it would be interesting if the path of someone who could ‘hear colors’ was used as a personification of black music’s roots in American upheaval.

“It isn’t a political album necessarily but definitely has socio-political leanings,” he continued. “Though, I’m not sure if we could make a record that didn’t in these days and times, honestly. Mainly, it’s a celebration of black music and the many different styles and messages and overall impact it has had on American culture and on the world.”

LOL how's that workin out for you?

what do you mean how is it working out lol? what the fuck were the consquences of that decision? but i do still think strange journey volume 3 is better than pinata, which i also enjoy, so i guess it worked out pretty well.

I'm sayin' nobody ever mentioned that corny Cunninlyngyists album after you held your AOTY thread.

Pinata is still discussed and examined by underground hip hop heads all over the country years after it's release.

How's that riding against the wave?

okay, but what were the repercussions? why can't people enjoy both albums lol, i still listen to both regularly so i really don't see what you're getting at here. are you implying that people who voted for the cunninlynguists album in 2014 are sitting there kicking themselves because they didn't vote for an album they enjoyed less?

Pinata was overrated, average at best. Madlib didn't even bring his A game beats and don't even get me started on guest spot Gibbs. SJV3 superior in every way to it. It wasn't my 2014 AOTY but better than Pinata.

I tried giving this new Cunninlynguists album a shot earlier today. Halfway through i shut it off. Was only feeling two tracks. Ill bump second half at another time.

C'mon Clock what the fuck.

How are you an authority around these parts and can call Piñata average?

SJV3 superior in every way? You do not mean this.

I don't know, if you aren't feelin CunninLynguists not sure what to tell you. What does one album have to do with the other? Kno makes great music, Deacon's a dope mc. Natti and Kno too. Their subject matter is relevant and interesting. You can listen to albums like Oneirology
and Dirty Acres straight through consistently (and and probably this one too).

Here's some lyrics from the first Pinata song that came up on youtube, "

"I'm straight thuggin' uh
And it feels so good, uh and it feels so right uh
And it feels so good, and it feels so right
Cause mothafucka I'm thuggin'"


Wow, sounds like a real gem. Maybe for my adolescent self 20 years ago. Haven't heard the whole thing tho, so don't want to rush to judgement, but the second song that pops up has em runnin around with a ridiculous looking gun. Top notch.

what conversation? every interaction you have with people seems to be them saying something you disagree with and then you acting like having a differing opinion is absurd. that's not a conversation, that is you being an autist

There isn't anything to get into with you because nothing you say has any substance.

listened to a little bit of this tonight and sound good but not what i was expecting....i love that they they have concepts to there albums but i feel like oneirology concept played to kno's strengths much more, production on this is still dope but its not like when i first heard oneirology

i voted for SJ3 that year cause madlib straight sucked out on Pinata and gibbs aint anything special. also cause pinata was so over hyped and praised by his cult following. beats on Pinata were mad repetitive and boring.

I'll take anything Kno produces over that pinata album.


Those kind of beats are boring to me.

Tells me or someone else "I ain't asked you" and tells someone else "Get in the conversation". I made a legitimate observation about some juvenile lyrics and you have no response. People all over the country analyze it? Sounds like some made up bs to me If were ranking based on how much people talk about them, I guess Fahim or Lupe are getting album of the year.

I won't front it took me a few years to listen to a group named the Cunninlynguists but thankfully for me when I did start listening they had already gotten rid of SOS (who I don't necessarily think is wack but just don't think he's on the same skill level as Kno and Deacon) and I haven't gone back since. I think the fist joint I really checked for was APOS. Haven't looked back since. Dirty Acres and Oneirology were also great albums.

Piñata Beats should been handed to Roc Marciano or Willie The Kid
This album got a Dirty Acres feel
Oneirology still there best
Still a strong album
Need to peep Bones again

Dirty Acres is my fav by them.

This one is cool, but got a lot of them 9th Wonder snares and isn't mixed/mastered superb.
