May I ask in what way they don't appeal to you? (You seem to like Numb?)

And tryin' to figure out what happened to 'Germaine Propaine'
"He couldn't have fell off that hard" Ain't no way
"What happened to the way you was rappin' when you was scandalous
That Canibus turned into a television evangelist"
Plus he raps with his regular voice [BOOSH! BOOSH!]

Really like Leaving and A Face Like That, but most of it really sounds great. What a warm sound it`s got !

AMAZING is the only word I have at the moment... and this only by listening to some snippets!!! Can't wait to hear the full album, so please, bring it on, September!!

My favourites at the moment are:
-) Leaving (will be a great album opener)
-) Your Early Stuff
-) Ego Music
-) Hold On
-) Give It A Go
-) Memory Of The Future
-) Requiem In Leopardskin And Denim

This makes, together with Winner 8 out of 12 songs...



(Brilliant found those nippets BTW!! Thanks zukunft!)

I find the snippets of the new tracks not very rememberable...especially compared to the b-sides of winner

whoa....first listen I am amazed at how complex the tunes sound and....off kilter.....as if they took chances and explored a bit more production wise and lyrically. this really is behaviour the sequel,I knew people were saying it migth be, but they really went and did it going by the samples. more listens, am I think it is freakin amazing, each tune so different than the next.wow

I might be wrong, but in terms of cheesy lyrics Hold On sounds like Winner part 2. Memory of the Future is definitely my favorite as far as I can tell.

funny breathing space has the same melody than winner. Your early stuff seem bad. But leaving and ego music seems the best tracks. it will be awesome.
