Athens, Georgia's first superstar MC, Bubba Sparxxx, returns with this highly impressive offering. Under the guidance of producer/mentor Timbaland, Bubba's follow-up to 2001's DARK DAYS, BRIGHT NIGHTS finds the white rapper elevating his game to a whole new level. While this can most obviously be attributed to Timbaland's stunningly inventive fusion of country and hip-hop, credit also goes out to Bubba himself. Focusing on more sobering subject matter, Bubba proves that an MC can be frank and honest yet still maintain an air of hardness. "Comin' Round," "She Tried," and "Deliverance" find Bubba exploring matters of lower-class conflict, including fatherhood and lost love. Outkast collaborators Organized Noize provide electrifying backup tracks on "New South" and "Back in the Mud," two anthems that showcase Bubba's ability to speak for an entire culture. With such strong performances by Bubba and Timbaland, DELIVERANCE is a work of two artists at their musical prime. A new South, indeed.
Artist Overview
There's the Dirty South, and then there's just the good ol' South. With his 2001 hit "Ugly," Albany, Georgia's Bubba Sparxxx represented hip-hop for every Skoal-chewing Southerner who drove a John Deere and loved 2Pac. With production duties on his first two albums handled by Timbaland, Sparxxx arrived with built-in credibility; however, his skilled flow and authentic persona proved that he was more than just a novelty. In 2006, Sparxxx teamed up with Outkast's production squad, Organized Noize, for the album THE CHARM, released on Big Boi's own Purple Ribbon label.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (10/2/03, p.118) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...DELIVERANCE may verge into HEE HAW! territory, but its heart is in STANKONIA."
Spin (9/03, p.110) - "...[A] robust evocation of life below the Mason-Dixon line....His flow exploits both the unchained melody and the motorized funk that tows it like a trailer..." - Rating: A-
Entertainment Weekly (10/3/03, p.72) - "...A sober rumination about life in the poor, white, rural South, complete with stunning bluegrass-sampling beats from Timbaland and Organized Noize..." - Rating: B
Q (01/01/04, p.75) - Ranked #42 in Q's "The 50 Best Albums of 2003"
Q (10/03, p.101) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...It's when Bubba stays with his southern roots - the biographical bluegrass twang of 'Deliverance', or the harmonica block party anthem 'Jimmy Mathis' - that he really shines..."
