Black Milk - Tronic

So Tronic is here. I was hoping for album of the year quality tracks but it fell a little short. At the same time, it is one of the better albums of the year. I think Black needed some of them soul samples that he said he wasn't going to use. Popular Demand utilized these soul samples wonderfully. He needed some of those beats like he did for other artists (Torae - Switch, Kidz In The Hall - Middle of the Map Pt. 1, Elzhi ft. Royce Da 5'9" - Motown 25, Skyzoo ft. Black Milk - Hold Tight [Remix]). At the same time, Black Milk is three times a better lyricist than he was in Popular Demand. So things kind of balance. Even though this album is different than his last one, it is still equally as good.

Notable Standout Tracks (Good):
Hell Yeah (Feat. Fat Ray)
Without You (Feat. Colin Munroe)
The Matrix (Feat. DJ Premier, Pharoahe Monch, & Sean Price)
Hold It Down
Losing Out (Feat. Royce Da 5'9")

Notable Standout Tracks (Not So Good):
Give The Drummer Sum
Bond 4 Life (Feat. Melanie Rutherford)
