Run The Jewels – Meow The Jewels Review

This album is good as an experimental piece, but when compared to the original backing, it is not nearly as good. This is obviously not intended to be a smash hit and more of a joke piece, but that actually has some very interesting moments.

The production is interesting to say the least as it is made up of noises cats make. These are used by different producers to do over the beats for the original songs. There are a lot of different methods and patterns used to create backings that are not classically enjoyable but its good to see someone trying something different, even if it is not going to be the new trend.

The lyricism is still great as it was on the original project as the lyrics remain unchanged. Both Killer Mike and El-P do the same great job and all the features are still effective. On thier next project, it will be interesting to see if they can keep up this extremely high quality of lyrical genius.

Overall, this is a different project trying to make waves by doing something no one has done before. While it is not for everyone and will mostly be seen as simply a collectible item, it is refreshing to know that there are still people trying new things.
