Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2005-06-08
Collaboration between DJ Spooky, Lombardo (the drummer for thrash metalists Slayer) along with contributions from Chuck D (Public Enemy), Dalek, and Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid. As you might expect the better tracks are bass/drum rhythm heavy concoctions that are neither turntable'y or metal. All of this is decidedly funky and lush with beats, mostly instrumental, and delve heavily into prog-rock even, the best ones feature the inimitable voice of one Chuck D and are a close approximation to PE themselves. A good amount of trippy space rock elements too(!). Really really great stuff.

1) brief spacey electronics
2) heavy funky public enemy hip hop feel gets metal rockin, yes
3) mostly instrumental, trippy urgent spy funk rhythm with injections of turntablism and guitar licks
4) searing space guitar, like if Fripp had been a metal head
5) funky beat heavy space rock instrumental
6) FCCs (by Dalek, after 2.5 minutes, lots of bad fucks, too bad)
7) jazzy prog rock overall, crazy noisey production and scratchin makes it abstract
8) brief spacey interlude
9) serious Public Enemy funky hip hop w/ sirens, the works!
10) drum solo-near sample art collage of mostly drums with scratchin', etc
11) somewhat downtempo, definately chill and spacey proggy jam
12) jazzy drums under soaring space rock overtones, cool
13) rockin driving instrumental jam
14) funky rockin feel with rappin "public enemy number one"
15) slower, midpaced spacey with sci-fi bouncey synth and washes
16) sci-fi spacey interlude
