Shape Of Broad Minds - Craft Of The Lost Art (2007)

This album somehow managed to slip under the radar last year, but its easily one of the best hip-hop releases in a long long time. This is the future sound of hip-hop; beautiful electronic soundscapes and erratic beats, hypnotic melodies and funky acid bass lines, with intelligent, flowing lyrics and themes. I haven't heard anything like it before and I doubt I will for at least ten years, its that far ahead of its time. It sounds like a moog in a washing machine. But good.
