Audio Two - What More Can I Say? (1988)


I was expecting this to be a never-ending generic and boring piece of East coast pop rap, but I ended up being surprised at how consistent and funky Audio Two could stay for an entire LP. This isn't going to be a favorite of mine, but I can see myself coming back for multiple listens. Milk and Gizz have a much louder presence on the mic (both in their volume and the way they talk) than other guys like JVC Force, The 7A3, or Rob Base. They're much more fun and adventurous and remind me of my personal favorite, Black Sheep, which is a big bonus in my book. The sampling is awesome and the scratching is super entertaining also. Worth a listen.
