Underground Famous is a strong indie release that will easily appease fans looking for fresh & creative music to enjoy. The album is stacked with fourteen full length tracks, over seventy minutes, of entertainment & insight. Fluent is talented, and he earns a ton of respect & recognition for this strong indie release that is a smorgasbord of dazzling lyrics, and explosive beats.
Fluent is abrasive with his lyrics, a down to earth, put it all on the line type of lyricist. Fluent is intense, creative, witty, & energetic on the microphone. His flow is tight, his punch lines are witty & funny, his rhymes are well written, and his delivery is impressive. Fluent spits a million bars and never has the need to surface for air. He dazzles fans effortlessly with his music, talent, and skills. Fluent gets heads nodding in a fraction of a second, and ears never tune out or away from his commanding, and captivating vocals.
Underground Famous more than deserves listening attention. The album sets off with an average introduction track – not the best way to introduce an album’s music to fans, but intro’s never are in any regards. Intro’s never add to the music, and always take away from the flow of an album. Once fans get past the minute or so of the introduction, they are pleasantly delivered into a non-stop, ever fresh, & continuously dazzling array of fourteen incredible full length tracks, the first being Guarantee. Guarantee is a strong track that does a great job introducing Fluent & his music to fans. The beat is equally as impressive & explosive as the lyrics. The next track, entitled “Dreams Come True”, continues to stimulate fans with another incredibly strong beat, and some of Fluent’s best laid bars on the entire album. The album continues with a slue of equally as impressive songs that are sure to draw attention & earn respect.
The most notable songs on the album are “Dreams Come True”, “Life Scratched Up”, “Out Of Reach”, and “Pray” with “Life Scratched Up” being the leader of the pack by a slim margin. All songs are very similar in terms of quality, and all are very strong candidates to be among the most notable. There are not any throw backs on the album. Each song has incredible production, backed by a dazzling beat, and some of the best head spinning lyrics you’ve never heard.
Some critics will critique the music on the album claiming that songs are too similar in sound & beat at times, and, or the beats are too creative & different. The songs flow perfectly together giving the album loop-ability, and an overall, unified sound. The creative & sometimes different sounds make the music interesting, and command more attention from fans, attention that they most certainly are willing to provide to such a breath taking, & refreshing album.
All the songs were written by Fluent, except for “Repercussions”, which included some contributions from Plague. 4 Eva Blesst provided the beats, production, and scratches. Eva Blesst came with some incredible contributions, and deserves infinite respect & recognition. The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Max Caselnova at Clearcut Recording, Garfied, NJ. Max Caselnova did an exceptional job with the mastering as the overall sound quality is real nice. The album artwork is well put together, and catchy. The artwork does a great job introducing Fluent to fans; however, more information on Fluent & his music inside the jacket would be appreciated by fans that want to be further informed. Vigilant Productions deserves recognition for putting this incredible release together & bringing it to fans world wide.
Overall Underground Famous is a strong album that is creative, refreshing, and deserving of undivided listening attention & heavy rotation in audio systems world wide. Fluent is extremely talented, and deserves complete recognition for his music & skills. This is mandatory listening.
