    Perfect Hair contains all the usual reasons Busdriver is wonderful, just with a little more sugar baked in.

    He has a release that bifurcates between sparkling, let-it-rip takes, over to a self-antagonistic, ball of constructed chaos.

    Rapid-fire delivery often make catching his drift difficult, but when spaces allow it, as on the hallucinogenic "Upsweep" or pointed "Retirement Ode," Busdriver's wit and wisdom flash through. [Oct 2014, p.69]

    Perfect Hair is no doubt a great album, but its tendency to fidget between ideas leaves it the idea of cohesion in a shallow grave.

    A few duds abound, like the wearisome "Eat The Rich," but the album ends strongly with the sci-fi-flavoured "Colonize the Moon."

    The album does have its share of absurd, tangled, almost impenetrable lines, nasally sung patches that could definitely be called an acquired taste, and mutated, oddball production that’ll raise more than a few eyebrows.

    Fantastic album. This album peers more into Busdriver's thinking, which, for the most part, isn't for the feint of heart. Taking basicFantastic album. This album peers more into Busdriver's thinking, which, for the most part, isn't for the feint of heart. Taking basic situations and turning into complex and insightful poetry is where Busdriver really excels at. Expand
