Debut album from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Emerging out of the Pacific Northwest, the pair have been featured at major festivals including Lollapalooza, Rock The Bells, Sasquatch, MusicFest NW and Outside Lands. Album guests include Ben Bridwell of Band Of Horses, Allen Stone, ScHoolboy Q & Ab-Soul.

Transcends what? Age, race, socioeconomic class, you pick. It doesn't get much better than this... incredibly solid flow, amazing production and a strange kind of synergy that's hard to explain. It really feels like these two are going to end up being one of *those* partnerships where something magic happens when they work together; RL's production is innovative, and full of risks that pay off over and over, and most importantly, it feels like M's voice and flow were specially engineered to fit these beats.

Here was Macklemore challenging the homophobic culture of hip hop, while examining his own assumptions about what it meant to be gay. In the next song challenging the narrative about money by professing his love for "your Grandpa's clothes" that he could pick up in a thrift shop. (About designer t-shirts: "That shirt's hella dough; And having the same one as six other people in this club is a hella don't!") Story telling! An edge! Something novel! Hallelujah!

The music has catchy songs such as Can't Hold Us, Thrift Shop, slower simpler songs like Same Love and Neon Cathedral, and takes oldschool music influences and creates a newschool sound.


The message is all well and good, but to be honest I probably wouldn't have made it that far if the music didn't sound good. But it does. Banging bass. Melody. Great vocals. A trumpet loads the songs with energy; the songs are interlaced with samples from '90s era hip hop. The songs actually progress and develop. Macklemore changes his tempo and phrasing. Good stuff.
