Chris picked a hip hop album. Chris. Chris Cusack. The whitest man in Scotland.

He did a good job too. This is Saul Williams’ second album, but it’s the first one where he true voice begins to emerge. It’s a huge clash of styles too, equal parts punk rock, noise, industrial, spoken word and hip hop. His true eclectic style is born on this album, and what a ride it is.

Saul would later go on to work with a bunch of acclaimed artists from across a variety of genres, but this album really helped push him into more alt-rock circles, and it’s easy to see why too with Zack De la Rocha, Serj Tankian and Isiah “Ikey” Owens all contributing to this album.

The case could easily be made that Saul Williams is himself unsung, so what we want to know is if you think this album is worthy of inclusion in our discography. Vote below.
