That is the official People Under the Stairs website.  It's legit.

This this video doesn't make you go out and buy Highlighter than I'm not sure what will:

Thes talks a lot about the sound quality of the album, which I can vouch for being amazing.  Especially if you get the 24-bit AAC version.

I'm not into Odd Future at all, but this guy is an exception... he's like a young MF Doom.

$30 for a double LP? I downloaded the album off a file sharing website (for reference) and I can tell you that, in my opinion, the music does not match the price. The album is too inconsistent to be considered one of their best works; I think OST is marginally better.

post #489 of 637

Sorry for your loss I guess.  It's an absolute masterpiece in my opinion.  It's the first time I've felt like Thes has gotten away from his "backpack" roots without losing the "underground" edge that keeps die hard PUTS fans loyal... tough balance.

 

EDIT:

 

Going back through the album here are my top tracks:

 

1 - "Self Destruction" -- Once you get past the 1st minute of BS, the rest of the track is an amazing way to open up the album.

3 - "Can't Hold It Back" -- Chopping styles that remind me a bit of 9th Wonder, with a beautiful mix of wonderfully layered groove samples.

4 - "Talkin' Back To The Streets" -- that Rakim sample gives me chills.  It takes me back to The 18th Letter album every time I hear it.

9 - "Foolish People" -- Straight-up bringing back the art of story telling.  A lost art in today's Hip-Hop.

10 - "Ascension to Nowhere" -- Talk about inginuity, trying to rap over something other than a 4/4 beat.  Very cool.

16 - "Mean Spirited" -- A Nirvana homage played by studio musicians, mixed with some dope synth samples that are not a PUTS staple.  Come on... pure fire!

Surface Emp

 

One the best Hip-Hop groups that really never was.  The producer is Hudson Mohawke, who has gone on to make a couple of descent Electro Hip-Hop albums, but nothing that was near as good as Lucky Me.

OK, I take back what I said. The album is definitely on point, it's just that there are times where Double K is not up to his usual standard for example on the opening track where in one line he tries to put on an imitating voice. I agree with you about the top tracks though, but it is tracks like At The House, The Second Track, Dewrit, We Got It and Uprock Boogie that bring the album down from being a "masterpiece". 

And also, please don't compare Thes One to 9th Wonder, as Thes is better in every way.

 

post #492 of 637

Out of curiosity, who would be your top 5 Producers?

 

My list:

 

#1 - Kno

#2 - Thes

#3 - Dilla

#4 - Marco Polo

#5 - 9th Wonder

Honorable Mention - Black Milk

post #493 of 637

definitely can't narrow it down but it could look something like this (not in order)

 

Pete Rock

Damu the Fudgemunk

J Dilla

Marley Marl

Prince Paul

Jazzy Jeff

RZA

Large Professor

Black Milk

K-Def

Kev Brown

That is a respectable list.  I may not agree with the order, but the names are definitely on top.  I'm moving towards some of the new-era-underground stuff lately, but all of those names are veterans in the game.

post #495 of 637

It wasn't in order by the way.

 

I'm definitely not a fan of newer underground hip hop; most artists think they have too much to prove and end up trying to be unique as possible by venturing into strange territory. Obviously there are a few exceptions.
