I'm Collin, I work in the kitchen at B-Dubs in Champaign, Illinois, I'm currently on hiatus from my school career (for a semester) where I was studying Radio Broadcasting and I'm a music fiend. Also, some say I'm half-man, half-amazing (c) NaS.

Occupation: Cook (B-Dubs Bitch!)

Single

About my collections

I have an enormous music collection that is continually growing, but since I put so much money into that collection my DVD and video game collection suffer.

Great Comic Book movie

Posted : 10 years, 9 months ago on 19 February 2007 09:41 (A review of Batman Begins)

Perfectly portrayed batman. They got the character spot on, the tone spot on and the origin was excellent. There's a great cast here as well as a great score. This is porbably a top 3 superhero movie. Can't wait for the next one.

Jimi's last hurrah

Posted : 10 years, 9 months ago on 19 February 2007 09:36 (A review of First Rays of the New Rising Sun)

This is one of my favorite Jimi Hendrix projects/albums. Here he teams up with Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell and Band Of Gypsys bassist Billy Cox. It's a bit of a turn from his previous work. There's less psychadelic experimentation and more funk. I say lay it on thick Jimi, and he does. Lots of great layering of riffs by Jimi here as well as shredding solos. it also has probably one of my favorite songs of all time: Hey Baby (New Rising Sun). If you're a big Jimi fan, don't stop at the Jimi Hendrix Experience releases, there's plenty more classic Jimi material out there, and this compilation is one of the best ones out there.

Love this album

Posted : 10 years, 9 months ago on 19 February 2007 08:50 (A review of Moment of Truth)

This is probably the best album from the legendary duo Gang Starr. DJ Premier is on the top of his game on this album, setting the mood with a lot of relaxed, groovy beats (Above The Clouds, JFK 2 LAX, What I'm Here 4, She Knowz What She Wantz & Betrayal) as well as some bangers (You Know My Steez, Work, BI vs. Friendship & The Militia). Guru provides his patented monotone flow that is delivered perfectly everytime. He has a really strong presence on the Mic; when he raps it's like he's talking to you. Overall a classic, classic album with not one bad track.

Funkier than an old gym sock

Posted : 10 years, 9 months ago on 19 February 2007 08:32 (A review of Rhythm-Al-Ism)

DJ Quik is one of the dopest producers of all time. His style relies heavily on live instrumentation and strong grooves. His beats are thinkly layered with different sampled instruments that are perfectled layed out. This album is what I consider to be his best front to back display of skill on the boards. Some favorite tracks are We Still Party, So Many Wayz & especially You'z A Ganxta. The one thing that's sort of holding this album back is the lyrical content. It's pretty playful for the most part, just a lot of party jams (bitches, booze & smoking B's) and whatnot. Don't look for deep thought provoking, political shit on here because you won't find it. But Quik's flow is on point and he is entertaining at the least. This album is a favorite of mine i feel it to be damn near flawless overall and truly flawless production wise.

Willie Hutch is the truth

Posted : 10 years, 9 months ago on 19 February 2007 06:49 (A review of The Very Best of Willie Hutch)

Willie Hutch, as the review of this album states, was Motown's answer to Curtis Mayfield. Dude was super soulful and funky at the same time. I got into his music through finding samples of hip-hop songs. Most notably he was used for 3-6 Mafia's Stay Fly and Murs & 9th Wonder's Dreamchaser. Both songs (Tell Me Why Has Our Love Turned Cold and A Love That's Worth Having respectively) are great, great songs. Too bad they aren't on this compilation. Check him out if you need some soul in your life, I'd start with his Fully Exposed album
