  • Summary: The underground hip-hop duo of Slug and Ant return with a new two-disc set.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 11 out of 15
  2. Negative: 0 out of 15
  1. An album that's for neither hardcore hip-hop fans nor punk rockers, but for everyone. [Nov 2005, p.224]
  2. The first overwhelmingly happy Atmosphere record.

    The struggles to get over energize [Slug] far more than the perks of minor celebrity. [Nov 2005, p.131]
  4. But despite the hit-and-miss subject matter you can’t ever get mad. [Slug]consistently does a fantastic job with his (underrated) delivery, which has improved drastically over the last three records.
  5. At this point in his career, Slug seems fully aware of his own routine, and he’s either embracing it with a cheeky self-confidence (read: he’s getting boring) or he’s run out of interesting things to say but still feels like he’s somehow controversial in his honesty.
  6. Slug hasn't grown a whole lot.... Still, his lyricism and delivery are generally smart and entertaining, and Ant's production goes even further toward making You Can't Imagine... a thoroughly enjoyable record.
  7. The result may be, in a manner of speaking, the most consistent Atmosphere album to date. That is, You Can’t Imagine is consistently okay.

    I have been a fan of Atmosphere since The Lucy Ford LP, and I can definitely attest to the fact that this is the group's most I have been a fan of Atmosphere since The Lucy Ford LP, and I can definitely attest to the fact that this is the group's most streamlined release since Lucy Ford. It was in my cd player when I initially bought it for nearly a month, and I still cycle it into rotation every week. Slug seems more elated than he has on previous EP's... But his lyrical delivery and sense of connection with his listers have never been more on point. I rate this album a 10 due to the solidity of each track, and Ant's beats are so dead-on that any fan of Atmosphere would definitely not hold back on agreeing on that note alone. Kudos to everyone who makes Atmosphere the group that they represent to their fans. Expand

    I felt like the weaker part of this album was it's production. It's not that the production was bad, but Ant doesn't help Slug in any wayI felt like the weaker part of this album was it's production. It's not that the production was bad, but Ant doesn't help Slug in any way throughout this album. I believe if the Alchemist would have produced for Slug or if Eminem had rapped on Ant's beats this album would've been less dull. Also this is basically general hip-hop that the dull 00's had to offer. For Atmosphere altogether my favorite release was When Life Gives You Lemons in 08 Expand
