Sonic Reducer

Thunderheist Thunderheist · Aaron J. Johnson Songs of Our Fathers · Chris Cornell Scream

Rave-rap is a strange beast, and few bands highlight the genre's strengths and weaknesses better than Canada's Thunderheist. As long as the synths are thick, the flows are energetic and the beats don't sound processed, this album is a party-starter. But when the beat is a programmed thud and the vocals are a monotone-mumble, only robots could get down. Thunderheist succeeds about half the time: When it does, there's usually xylophone, disco claps or tambourine bringing the songs to life. MC Isis wraps her rhymes tightly, but she often borrows lyrics from artists like Old Dirty Bastard, Aaliyah and Lil John. Her skills are strong enough to stand on their own, but she leans on the words of others too frequently. (SM)
