Okay. I liked about 3/4 of Lemons. That was released in 2008 - 4 years ago. I've been listening to him since about 99. I prefer older Atmosphere. It's cool if you like the new shit, I'm not telling you not to. I have a Twin Cities bias as well. I prefer the beats over the band too. Band works better with Brother Ali. Nothing will top God Loves Ugly/Headshots Se7en/Overcast/Lucy Ford for me.
Honestly I agree, GLU and Lucy Ford are still two of my favorites, it has a nastalgic feel to it, it's hard to beat.
