    Del does it again. He continues to amaze with his mastery of complex rhyming schemes and how effortlessly he flows between multiple schemes in each track. The production is what we've come to expect from his last few albums: low-fi and heavy, but funky and fitting. With an genre currently filled with poor rhymes, bad beats, and even worse subject matter ("look how big my house is, how many blood diamonds I can plaster all over my body, and how much I can spend on a single pair of shoes.") I respect Del for doing nothing less than "keeping it real." Collapse

    Regardless of if you were hoping for more from Del in his latest offering, Golden Era is a good summer album and a reminder of all of the things you loved about hip-hop growing up.

    Yes, the three discs of Golden Era are a zone of throwback pleasures. It's a chance to listen to one of rap's best voices run on, with breathless speed and breathtaking control, over the kind of effortlessly funky beats that sadly don't get much attention in certain quarters these days.

    Golden Era, the smartest, funniest, most urgent hip hop joint of '11 by far.
