Loss 4 Wordz
Loss 4 Wordz is a hip-hop album comprised of beats made by Scratch, a famous beat-boxer and former member of The Roots. I know you’re thinking that a whole album of people rapping over beat-boxing sounds like a bad gimmick, but it rises above that and often makes you forget how the track was made. On â€œToo Late,â€ Damon Albarn sounds as good over beat-boxing as he does on any other track with real instruments. Unfortunately, an album helmed by someone who isn’t a vocalist has the challenge of creating a flow throughout, despite different vocalists on every track, and sometimes Loss 4 Wordz feels like an hour of people introducing themselves.
