O.C.
"Starchild" (International Version)
Grit Records/Inebriated Rhythm



Intro
Evaridate (feat. Pharoahe Monch) 4
Who Run It - 4
The Professional - 4.5
1nce Again - 5
Ya Don't Stop - 5
Story To Tell - 5
What Am I Supposed To Do - 4.5
Getaway - 5
Memory Lane - 5
Special - 4.5
Who Run It (Remix) - 4
Outro

Kept under covers for almost a year OC dusts his shoulders off from 'Bon Appetite', leaving you speechless. Starchild blows 2004 out of the water, and if this is a marker for 2005, it's looking good, very good. Only distributed overseas, mainly in Japan, this is going to sell out quick as stores only have there hands on limited copies. Hopefully it will be re-issued on the proper, but when it comes to hot albums the industry without fail, fails. So don't count on your luck.

The only negative thing I can say about this album is a couple of the tracks sound samey, but when all the tracks are top-notch, you can't fuck with it, so Don't.

5/5

- Surprisingly good album.
- Who's idea was it to have Pharoahe Monch sing but not rap? :x
- Word is the US release will be different.
- I'll upload it later for anyone who wants to check it out.

Now this album is the shit! Thanks Sai for the link, this is blazing...wish I could get a real copy though, but I guess I have to wait. Hope it will be even a semi-major release since otherwise it's gonna be next to impossible get around here...

I don't know if sandboxautomatic ships to Finland, or if you'd want to pay that much shipping, but they had this album as recently as last week.

Thanks Sai, this is a great album. OC's definitely back on form and I'm loving it. Listening to "Getaway" right now.

A couple of the beats, "Ya Don't Stop" and "Special", don't really work for me but maybe they'll grow on me. O.C. doesn't disappoint, though, and I'd rate the album about 4/5 after one listen.

This version already is available (as much as it will be). I think the US version (which should be different) comes out around summer.

The long anticipated O.C. album "Starchild" has just been released in Japan in limited quantites and we have the import version right here months ahead of the very very different U.S. version.


Months could add up to a year. Id imagine about 4-5 months. Grit records are going to make a killing.
