Editorial Reviews
Amazon.com
In 1993, the Digable Planets, a trio of New York MCs with happy insect monikers (Doodlebug, Butterfly, and Ladybug) and nonthreatening auras, created manna for the pseudo-beatnik crowd. On Reachin': A New Refutation of Time and Space they melded jazz records, hip-hop beats, and rhymes--like Gang Starr and the Dream Warriors before them. Much to their dismay, the single "Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)," which combined their be-boppy flows with a catchy Art Blakey loop, captured the clove cigarette contingent. Their sleeper follow-up, Blowout Comb was a De La Soul-esque reaction to their pop success. They forsook the bohemians (and probably scared them as well) by waxing poetic about the Black Panthers and Fidel Castro and giving shout-outs to their peeps in the Five Percent Nation of Islam. Loaded with live instrumentation, the album includes "Black Ego," an interpolation of a popular Meters composition laced with nice guitar plucks, and "K.B.'s Alley," where a schizophrenic trombone perfectly complements their wordplay. Despite strong guest spots by vet female DJ Jazzy Joyce, Guru, and Jeru the Damaja, it's the hidden messages, somber mood, and understated beats of "9th Wonder (Blackitolism)" or "Dial 7 (Axiom Of Creamy Spies)" that outshine the gloss of their debut. --Dalton Higgins

the most criminally slept on hip hop album., January 23, 2004
Reviewer: C. Roark "tri-zeta" (from under the floorboards and through the woods...) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)
This is one of those albums that just slides through the cracks between genres. It's also the quintessential hip hop album. Along side 'The Low End theory,' 'Things Fall Apart,' Paul's Boutique,' 'Stankonia'... It takes hip hop to new places, it makes the whole more than what it was. Few albums accomplish that- stepping up the game for all involved and raising the collective ante.

The tracks are dense as hell- sticky-thick, odd effects, abyssinian-deep funkee samples, beats the likes of which I have never heard before (really- and I know beats pretty wel, aside from the shuggie otis sample on 'For Corners' and a couple others I'm at a loss for most of the album), and sick rhymes that stick in your head eternally... It is way beyond 'Reachin,' Digable Planet's debut album, which was a very good album in its own right.

Like I have said before in reviews, there are very albums that I can just sit back and listen to- the whole thing, no skipping tracks, no messing with the order. This is just perfect, like the girl you hope to take home to mom one day. If the almighty bounced into my kitchen while I'm washing dishes to Blowout Comb, while skipping around and murmuring the lyrics, and asked me- "Well, can I make it better? More echo on the jazz drums from 'black ego'? Or higher pitch on the singing on 'the axioms of creamy spies? Anything? you want fries with that perfection???"

I'd just say, "You know what, God? This one is fine as is."

Just kidding, there is no God. But this album is damn close. ( )
