Black on Both Sides or Reflection Eternal
« on: July 22, 2002, 05:39:19 AM »
I'm going to have to go against my Muslim brother Mos Def and say that Talib's album was better, maybe because he had Hi-Tek with him, or it could be because Talib can come a little harder than Mos Def can.

Both were very innovative albums but for me personally i'd choose "Reflection Eternal (Train Of Thought") over "Black on Both Sides". For one I prefer Talib over Mos Def as an MC, another there were better beats and it was more of a complete album for me, I personally consider it a classic, I can listen to it throughout without skipping a track. But with "Black On Both Sides" there were a few skippable tracks, I think due to the beats, Mos ventured into some weird type of production on some tracks that I didn't enjoy very much, it was still worth picking up though, no doubt.

I think that if you take one of the 'O's' out of 'Good' it's 'God', if you add a 'D' to 'Evil' it's the 'Devil'. I think some cool motherfucker sat down a long time ago and said 'let's figure out a way to control motherfuckers'.

IMHO, Black On Both Sides is the better album overall, but I definitely miss Hi-Tek's beats!

We are all human beings isn't that a good enough reason for peace?

Hard choice as Mos and Talib have equal skills as MC's but my choice is Train Of Thought due to Hi-Teks outstanding production.
