Nov 3, 2015There's so much good chemistry and a sense of purpose on Bad Neighbor that it's easy to see why this crew reunited, and while this is a loose posse effort and not the artistically weighty material fans usually get from the members individually, both MED and Blu's discographies get one their tightest releases to date.
Nov 3, 2015If you consider the particular goals each artist sets out to accomplish--Madlib with sonic compositions that will have everyone scratching their heads on their origins, Blu with the West Coast lean in his muffled step, and MED with his boom bap flow--they did an impressive job without stepping on anyone's toes, having lines and beats worth remembering, and bringing a few friends and family along for the ride.
Nov 3, 2015The record is a posse cut without pretense and the showpiece of a stylistic partnership that feels long overdue.
Nov 3, 2015Bad Neighbor whizzes by in a blunted haze, which might be an insult to another project, but it works well here, when the stakes are low and the mood is most important.

A fine album to vibe out to on a weekend or when your are out in a bout, that sadly suffers from some weird mixing issues that can swallow the sounds/vocals up.
