    Hahaha love the play by play posting!! :tu

    Glad you digged it, I'll try to upload bandcamp links with every thread!!! I loved this album, from start to finish, I don't think anything will touch it this year *hopes I'm wrong*.

    Great album.

    I live on bandcamp, I've heard ALOT of albums (from free to name your price) on bandcamp over the past few months...

    In fact I got one that I've been playing for a minute.

    Which one is that??? I need to hear more…

    Astro Nautico

    Listened to it earlier, I'll post up my thoughts… in the thread :tu

    No prob, there are many different albums i've heard from bandcamp. I go here to

    Mannn, I have this over that Killer Mike, although I liked it.

    What you think to the production and O.C.'s performance? I think Apollo really shined yet his beats from Clouds were by far and away the best apart from Prove Me Wrong, which is dope.

    Del's and Aesop's I can't wait to hear!!!

    @satyrone, no doubt, it was incredible what Apollo did on the boards… again!!! You found a favourite song now?

    Haha that beat is dope and from Clouds (the instrumental album Apollo did last year), did you check it last year (Clouds)?

    Great song, though I don't smoke haha

    Props @bigev240, great disc. Still potentially my favourite of the year, although Oddisee has made it really tough now… I think O.C. rips it more and I do prefer Apollo to Odd, yet that guitar led 'You Know Who You Are' is my favourite track of the year and from Oddisee's 'People Hear What They See'.

    One more awakened head! Props :tu

    Glad you picked it up as well, you got any favourites? Think it's a contender for one of the best you've heard this year? & If so, what's it alongside?

    I got to say Options, The First 48, and Angels Sing are the ones so far.

    Beautiful and refreshing. "Nautica" Lyrics and Beat is classic.

    Just listened to this last night. My word, shit knocks. Probably should be album of the year, did not skip 1 track on this. To be honest best album I have probably heard over the last few yrs. "The Pursuit" and "Anotha One" are my faves right now. And the intro is mad funny. Great production, great execution.

    @bigev240

    Nice picks, honestly can't go wrong with the whole release as I think everyone else feels…

    @Legacy804

    Dark beat on that one. I think all releases from Mello Music Group encompass 'Beautiful and Refreshing' though. You should check out The Left & Oddisee if you haven't already :tu If you have, who's your favourite on Mello Music Group?

    @achewon87

    Haha @ My word.

    Anotha One borrows production from Apollo Brown's 'Clouds' instrumental release from last year, he's incredible as a producer but O.C. did magical work with that track.

    Glad you're feeling it, have you checked out Oddisee's People Hear What The See? Check my sig if not :tu

    Co-sign, still bumpin' this too. I think it's got the nod over Oddisee for me too as the album of the year thus far, although I'm yet to give Son of Yvonne a spin despite it being at home (I'm away for 3 weeks).
