I got a press advance of Stuck on an Island a few months back (so sweet), but held on to it for a while until closer to the release date.
I’ve been a big fan of ¡MAYDAY! since their self-titled release back in ’06. In fact, it was one of the reasons I created the site in the first place – they were my second post, right after DJ Frane. Since then I’ve been waiting for the next LP and it’s finally here – well, soon for y’all :p
So what do I think of the album? I’m not going to get into it too much until it’s released on Oct. 12, but there are definitely a few stand out tracks. It may not be up to the standard of their first album – I’m always bias to an artist’s album I first listen to – but like anything, I just gotta let this one sink in for a little while longer (another reason for the delayed review).
Here’s a sneak peak at one of the tracks, “I’ll Be Gone”, which I’d say is my third favorite song off the album (so far) – I’m saving the top two for my review. Until then enjoy this and look over some of my older posts on ¡MAYDAY!, it’s some topnotch hip-hop.
