Copied from my recent review of it on Amazon:
Ever since Let's Get Free I have had high hopes for dead prez. In all honesty I have been let down by almost every album since. Sure some albums had some real gems on them but overall they have not lived up to their full potential in my opinion. Pulse of the People was the closet I heard to a real good follow up to LGF.
Now we have Information Age, an album that once again is missing something. And I know what it is...fitting production, meaning their beat and hook choices. I can appreciate them updating thier sound. But it should have been updated with a sound that truly fits the message. I look at this album like I looked at Lupe's album Lasers. The lyrics and subject matter is on point but the production is not good at all save for a few trks. Maybe it will get better w/ time and I will come back and review. I will not blind buy another dead prez project or album. they are now on the try b4 buy list. Dang DP's.
