General Midi

Oh great.

Another album with “Not for resale” samples on every track. Does that really stop people? To be honest with this one it doesn’t really matter, ‘cos I don’t like it at all anyway. It’s probably really good in a nightclub when you’re a bit drunk and getting your dance on, but sat here listening to it I really feel the complete lack of any emotion or humanity on any of the tracks. It’s just a series of bleepy bloopy noises that don’t mean anything, although some of the guest MCs are OK. It’s also weirdly lacking in bass in a lot of places, and just feels very sparse. I dunno, maybe that’s what the kids like nowadays.
