Beyond the Shadows (4 stars), April 13, 2009
By: alanp0099 - See all my reviews

This EP arrived shortly after Brother Ali's critically claimed sophomore album "Shadows On The Sun", which is personally one of my favorite hip-hop albums of all time. So nine new cuts from the self proclaimed Urban Norman Rockwell was greeted with open arms. As always, Ali is accompanied by Ant, who continues to amaze with a dynamic range of sound in his production.

While the quality of the material is very high here, and I do enjoy every cut, I'm not feeling every cut as a classic like I did his sophomore LP. That said, these cuts are definitely classics IMO: "Love on Display", "Self Taught" (my favorite), & "Rain Water". "Heads Down (You Haven't Done That Yet)", "Chain Link", & "Bad Ma Fu**a" are very close. Overall, it's very solid throughout with no real faults, even though I'm personally not feeling the remix of "Champion" as much as the original. Ali delivers the truth in the form of music once again, and this EP is definitely a note-worthy recording in his catalog. Highly recommended.
