Boomkat Product Review:
I must say that in the wake of Chilly Gonzales’s successful solo piano releases I don’t think I expected to see him return to the comic rap he cut his teeth on, at least in this lifetime. He’s back though, and on fine form offering up the world’s first orchestral rap album (allegedly) and it does indeed do exactly what it says on the tin. To me Gonzales has never really been a great rapper technically, but his rhymes are funny and smart, and now have the backing of an orchestra in full-on French film score mode. He takes us through his thoughts on modern rap (it’s all about watches, apparently – has he been listening to Lil B perchance?) and typically overloads on the kind of self-effacing humour we all knew was his calling card – but this is an older, wiser Gonzales. It’s almost like listening to an old busker outside of a French café, reciting stories of his past and musing on life and the younger generations; and that’s no bad thing at all.
