Because it’s been part of the shuffle playlist on my MP3 player for about of month now, I’ve been listening to this a lot, and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s one of the best albums of the 80’s.
It’s got brilliance, humor and scads of aural pleasure. Made by suburban college kids who don’t rub your nose in how depressed they are and have great record collections. It’s kind of a pastoral, with a dance hit.
It’s De La Soul’s “Three Feet High and Rising”.
Why don’t more folks spend more time talking about the sheer greatness of this record?
