The Sound Of '96

Got the new Ghostface Killah album..."Apollo Kids".
I love this CD. This is the hip-hop I miss...that late 90's hardcore street sound with the heavy soul-samples, crisps snares, gritty kicks...the feel alone is a style of it's own(...hey, maybe I should use that last line as a bar in a verse lol).

"Apollo Kids" is the resurrection of the infamous Wu-Tang sound. And is also proof that the sound is age-less. Doesn't sound dated or anything, just refreshing.

Maybe I feel this way because of my own sound(kinda '96-ish) but judge for yourself.
"Drama" featuring Joell Ortiz & Game is one of my favorite tracks from the album. Joell attacks the beat as usual, something crazy while Game does his damage but the homie is sounding a bit too much like the homie Nas in my opinion.
