The Minneapolis-based duo and indie rap heroes known as Atmosphere (Slug on the mic, Ant on the beats) is back with their sixth and arguably most daring LP, WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS. As usual, Slug spins compelling verses that range from hopeful and sensitive to aloof and cynical, while Ant elevates his production repertoire to new heights. Working largely in the familiar area of soul, jazz, and blues samples, the beatsmith also incorporates elements of pop-rock ("Dreamer" and "Guarantees") and new wave ("You"). WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS is a challenging effort from one of the most distinctive groups in hip-hop's underground.
Professional Reviews
Alternative Press (p.144) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he cumulative effect is a widescreen collection that seems destined to win a broader audience for the duo..."
CMJ - "Extra credit for producer Anthony 'Ant' Davis and funky, worm-loving synth-player Scotty Rapp for keeping these working class character sketches moving and booming."
URB (Magazine) (p.105) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Slug's rhymes swim in his traditional content pool....Yet, he steers his delivery into a relaxed, confident charisma that carries the serene 'Like The Rest of Us,' the synth-rampant 'Wild Wild Horses,' and the powerful 'Puppets.'"
