Loud and Quiet

A razor sharp and nonconformist debut, elevated by its playful self-awareness.

The Line of Best Fit

Injury Reserve cycles through different forms – the bone-crushing and bass heavy, the feather-light and confessional – totalling every single one.

What makes the trio so interesting, then, is something outside of their unique position within the genre's movements -- outside, moreover, of their purported claim to "experimentation". It's an understanding of their craft -- an acceptance of its boundaries -- and a willingness to grow.

I’ll go in depth later, but for now, I’ll just say that this is one of the most creative rap albums you’re gonna hear all year

Injury Reserve have been making waves in rap music for five years now, so it's weird that this is technically their first studio album. 2016's Floss was well realized enough to be a a full album, but the band labeled it a mixtape instead. Now that we have the actual debut though, I'm happy they chose this to introduce themselves to the musical world ... read more
