Krizz Kaliko – GO (Quick Review)
Been a few years since I’ve been on here to post and update the site. Lost of motivation with the site + Being more focused on making music has led to most of us going MIA but in the next year that will change dramatically. First post of the year will actually be a quick run through of the latest album from one of my favorite artist Krizz Kaliko entitled GO.
I will just skip straight to the point on this. If you haven’t picked it up yet, you definitely need to pay the 10-20$ and support this amazing talent. Most people recognize Kali for his perfect hooks and singing, or his delivery on some of the best chopper songs released by Strange Music. On this album he took a completely different direction, one that everyone has been waiting for, and revolves around his raw talent of being a singer. I’d say close to 90% of this song is singing, with the weakest of tracks actually being the only one revolving around chopping which the label is known for entitled Orangutan.
I don’t have enough time to do a full album review but will definitely do a quick highlights of the album. This is definitely album of the year, it is different yet includes all the albums most people enjoy in real music. Raw emotions, talent and catchy beats to go along with crafty lyrics. Talk Up on It seems like it belongs right up there with Billie Jean by Michael Jackson. The guitar riffs, bass line, and Krizz’s delivery set the tone for the entire album with that track. Something fun and different, yet similar to to nostalgic music we all loved growing up. Bite your tongue, is another great track, not one of my favorites on the albums. But not every song meets our personal preference. Still this is a fun song that reminds me a lot of Daft Punk for some reason. Behave, and Stop this world were all released before the album dropped. Behave talks about infidelity and not wanting to know if your partner cheats, something we’ve all thought about or can relate to. Stop This World deals with the daily struggle and wanting to leave this world. Krizz Kaliko shines on this track, instantly relating with everyone and getting the point across that sometimes we just don’t want to exist anymore. Logged Off touches close to this subject as well and does an amazing job giving such a sad song an upbeat tone. Happyish is another stand out song on this album, and very inspiring which continues the theme of being down and beat up but still pushing forward. The acoustic guitar and Kali with no distractions is the perfect environment for him to show off his vocal talent without over-doing it. It’s hard not to enjoy most of this album if not all of it. Outta Line is a crazy fun song, and the definition of what real pop music should be like. Fun, Silly, Memorable and about those desires that everyone will sing along to. Big FU gives Kali a chance to go back to a sorta Jazz/Rock feel. Which reminds me a lot of his hook on Tech N9ne’s – Give it all. This track has a lot of potential to cross over and Kali shines when he dares you to take a walk in his shoes. No No’s shows Kali’s talent at layering his vocals, there hasn’t been to many artist that have succeeded at sounding great when layering like Kali does. Tupac on Hail mary was a stand out for me when it came to layering vocals. If you wanted to refer someone who is on that elite level, this song is a perfect one for them. Orangutan was my least favorite song on the album surprisingly, I usually love these chopper tracks and how can you go wrong with Tech, Rittz, Ces Cru and Kali on a chopper track but there’s just something about this song that doesn’t stand out. Maybe it’s because they just shredded the last set of cyphers they did on Strangulation II where the verses were a bit tighter.
There are a few songs I’ve left off but I’m out of time. I’d definitely rate this album as a 5/5 for creativity and innovation as well as delivery. If you enjoy Krizz Kaliko’s music, pick up this album. I mean actually buy it and support his talents.
