Boomkat Product Review:
Nova Scotian hip hop impresario Buck 65 (aka Richard Terfry) returns with album number eleven. Situation is a far cry from his days on Anticon when Terfry wowed audiences with the advanced, Metallica-sampling productions and adventurous linguistic extravagances of Man Overboard. Situation is a rather bigger, more coherent sounding album which still finds Mr. 65 on fine lyrical form but the production is more recognisable as modern hip hop with upbeat scratch exercises like 'Way Back When' sounding as poppy as they do articulate. '1957' provides an early highlight, hinging upon a minor-key piano loop and heavy, gritty breaks. You get the feeling that Terfry is often aiming for a 'Tom Waits of hip hop' persona, his low, rumbling tones certainly prompt that comparison, as do some of the sample choices, but in any case he remains a unique voice in the hip hop universe, despite being signed to a major label you can still hear that leftfield independent spirit coursing through his music.
