Danny Brown – Atrocity Exhibition

I initially wasn’t fond of Danny Brown. His nasal voice annoyed me a little, so after listening to XXX I kind of ignored him. But then the first singles from this album started dropping and I felt like I had made a mistake. This was some great stuff, weird, dark, experimental. So I decided to buy Atrocity Exhibition, and I was pleasantly surprised.

This album incorporates a lot of styles. It’s been released by Warp, and like labelmates Aphex Twin and Boards Of Canada, a lot is happening in these songs. There’s some industrial, some weird jazz, some post-punk influences. It jumps all over the place, only to be kept in control by Brown himself. Because no matter which style is presented here, it always seems to work for him. Another thing worth of note : there are almost no collabs. Brown stands firmly on his own, telling his own stories, banishing his own demons. There’s no “bitches and hoes, get down on the floor” here, only inner turmoil. And it suits him well.

My favourite song is Really Doe. The one song with collaborators, I know. But it’s just so good. And I had the added problem that all the other songs were miles apart in style and substance, so it’s hard to choose from. This was the easy choice. And tbh, if you’re getting Kendrick, Earl and Ab-Soul on one track, it’s always going to shine.

If you like your hiphop a little different, you should definitely check this out. It seems that mr Brown is carving his own path, and that can only be commended.
