    K'Naan more than makes up for it [occasionally cheesy, pop choruses] with intelligent and innovative verses, not to mention excellent guest spots.

    It relies heavily on ambiguous world music tropes, highly melodic, canned inspirational hooks and arena-style arranging.

    More Beautiful Than Silence, is one of the year's most authentic rap collections.

    The young Somalian is far from the first artist to have to figure out "their" sound while sweating under the spotlight, and by the sound of Silence he's still figuring things out.
