    I always thought of the first one as just a Del album that happened to be produced by Dan the Automator. I'm sure at the time that's how it was positioned - just as a Del concept album. Think the whole "supergroup" thing has fucked it all up a bit.

    Btw have they released any of the new Deltron yet?
    Yes, all of it.
    Ha, shows how up to date I am! I just remember seeing some preview months ago :)

    Will go search for it now!

    Saw a video recently where Del explained his lack of output recently is due to his brother dying but that he has loads of stuff recorded to release in the next 12 months.

    Most interestingly though he said he reconnected with Cube at the funeral and they are working on some stuff together.

    Edit: I quite liked the Deltron record. As has been said it's nothing earth shattering but I always like Dan The Automators' production.

    Better though, in the new albums by bands that have been away for ages, is the new self titled The Procussions album. I almost skipped it because the single is a bit cheesy but almost all of the other tracks are great.

    Also, the new The Menagerie album is pretty great. Tom Caruana is so consistently good with his production.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    I never actually picked up the new Heiroglyphics album. Might do that right now in fact.

    Oh yeah. It's totally the year of the comeback.

    Latyrx in a couple of weeks too.

    Edit: And the new RJD2 is quite the return to form.

    I guess so.

    It's just called The Second Album.

    Blackalicious this year as well I think.

    And speaking of them and Latyrix, The Mighty Underdogs is one of the few supergroup things worth picking up (although I never listen to it).

    Yeah, umming and ahhing about it with my mates. Monday night.. Plus Reading crowds are often sparse, and it's quite a big venue. They were so fucking good when I saw them last time that I'm kinda tempted still.

    I can't find anyone to go with, so I think I'm going on my own.

    I've never managed to see them so I'm not letting this pass me by.

    Yet another new Verb T album out. The guy's a machine. Good as well. Bit more of a listener than a banger, but that's how I like them.

    Listening to some J5 and got to thinking:

    Best Voices in Hip Hop (like pure sound of their voice thing):

    1. Q-Tip (I mean it has to be doesn't it?)
    2. Charli 2na
    3. Biggie

    I'm also thinking maybe someone like AZ? Really distinctive voice. And Method Man

    I'd go for Raekwon, MF Doom and Rakim.

    Not sure how you define 'pure', but these guys seem to have a classic sound (save maybe Doom).

    MF DOOM playing Kentish Town on the 16th Nov

    Eminem mmlp2 actually pretty good. Probably his best album since the eminem show although not a patch on mmlp but never expected it to be.

    Got it for 3.99 off amazon mp3, result. Not really a sequel though, should of had things like bitch please 3 rather than tracks with rihanna. Kendrick lamar only decent feature spot.

    How has B-Real not made this list?? Surely the most distinctive voice in Hip Hop. Even my wife can pick him out.

    Busta Rhymes HAS to be in there as well.

    Aside from those already mentioned though Snoop, Guru, Flava Flav and Slick Rick are major contenders. And ODB. And Andre 3000. And Jeru the Damager.
