I did and my opinion is still pretty much the same. It was a solid album but I can respect Shad as an artist without necessarily liking his music. It seems he really appeals to people's music tastes on this site that listen to mostly scene music and a little bit of hip hop on the side.
And that's okay because this isn't a hip hop website but it does tend to lead to artists being overrated (Shad and P.O.S come to mind, even Kanye's latest album to a certain extent).
Guess I'm not sure why you feel it's overrated overall (AP isn't the end all of criticisms, many have acknowledged his talent, up there with K'naan). Good artists are in the "eyes of the beholder" so to speak, but I do agree that some people tend to ride a tide because it's "underground and hip". I don't think he's a part of that, though, otherwise he'd probably start to be more recognized.
And honestly, I actually found him through my love for bands on Smallman Records, like Propagandhi ( who isn't exactly a favorite on AP, not by a long shot.)
