Big K.R.I.T – Cadillactica Review

This album is a gentle, easy going but thought provoking trip through the mind of Big K.R.I.T. This obviously explores a wide range of topics but without the project feeling to jagged and uncomfortable to listen to. In fact it is surprisingly cohesive for a non concept album. This is very easy to listen to all the way through.

The production is fantastic. Big K.R.I.T has used his ears as a producer very well to craft an album that is almost seamless in transitions between tracks. Individual tracks are smooth and sound like they are being played by real instruments, even if they aren’t. Its refreshing to hear.

The lyricism may not be the most complex but it is perfect for the production, the message and to tell the story on each track. Big K.R.I.T’s signature tone and flow make him very easy to discern from any other voices on the tracks. He also weaves together ideas and anecdotes to help explore the ideas he brings up in his tracks.

The features are good and only help to explore the ideas on each track. K.R.I.T stays the main focus of each track, but with someone to help re-enforce or offer a different opinion on each base idea, it helps get the brain juices flowing and the listener thinking about what K.R.I.T is rapping about.

Overall, this is a great album for just kicking back and relaxing to, thanks to the production, or to really ponder over, thanks to the contents, but there is something here for everyone to enjoy and is definitely worth a spin for any listener.
