Esoteric - Serve or Suffer (2008)

Esoteric of 7L and Esoteric fame brings an all-instrumental album inspired by the comic superheroes of legendary Jack Kirby and the like. We all knew Esoterrible had a way of ripping the mic to shreds, but on here, he shows a different side of himself. Quite a large variety of beats and atmospheres. Not necessarily beats for battle rhymes but of the more experimental and playful kind with a healthy dose of vocal snippets thrown in. Well-rounded, entertaining and great music to surf the net to. ;)

My favourite is probably "1989" which is packed with samples and soundbites of the time.
