Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein
Jun 25, 2018

With El-P’s murky percussion that ought to give you a concussion, Vast Air and Vordul Mega collaborate on The Cold Vein to explain the true horrors of the city of New York. At the time of its release, the music industry was saturated with the Y2K trend, yet the group Cannibal Ox go against the grain here with some of the most experimental, unembellished sound and messages in music, period.
Honestly, the mind-bending, acrobatic, intelligent wordplay on this project relating to the struggles of the people within the urban areas of New York City endure leaves me speechless. A life full of running in circles around an eerie homelife, going nowhere fast because of the corruption infested within the economic system of our government. The lyricism is so thick, I am 110% certain that in the year 3030 I will still be dissecting this album.

Best tracks: “Iron Galaxy;” “A B-Boys Alpha;” “The F-Word” AMAZING; “Painkillers”
Worst tracks: “Ridiculoid”
