CD Review: Michael Lynche - Michael Lynche
Michael Lynche - Michael Lynche
2008, Hood Famous Music
This is new old-school hip-hop funk. Bringing a musical style and sound perfect by none other than Prince himself, Michael Lynche has constructed one of the most delightful hip-hop/funk/pop albums of 2008. This music is a reason to revisit the genre if you're not generally into it. Michael Lynche crosses the traditional lines of R&B/hip-hop and the results are glorious.
Michael Lynche has a rhythm all its own. Mr. Lynche represents a strong sense of humor, excellent lyrical sense a willingness to delve into sounds that are actually drawn from real instruments. Highlights are Heat Or Paranoia, Southern Belle, Nigarachi, and a reverential cover of Bill Withers' Ain't No Sunshine.
Whether Michael Lynche gets much national attention is anyone's guess, but this is some of the most imaginative, creative and original hip-hop I've come across in some time. I offer a very strong recommendation!
