"The Thoughtful EP"
Review by Ire Flux

Today
is the day we finally admit to ourselves that EVERYONE owns a microphone and believes they are the next big thing to hit a stage. Hip Hop connoisseurs today we admit to ourselves that there are many, many...MANY shelves full of dramatic, "emo" stemmed, whiney filled albums. Hip Hop fans Today is the day we admit to ourselves that there is a lot of aspects of the genre that has been 'overly cooked' but not very 'well done' HOWEVER...today...I ease your weariness and introduce you to artists that are still doing it RAW. Straight from the catacombs of the boogie down comes Thinker- a newbie-veteran producer that sets atmospheres vast with originality and chilled vigor.

Thinker brings to us 'The Thoughtful EP' which is aptly titled. An eclectic canyon of asphalt cracking love that seems to never get old. Just when i thought everyone was going cotton soft came an EP hard off with teeth grinding grime outlined in a jazzy cool. From when 'Garden of Eden' chimes in almost unexpectedly with a in your face delivery from Nixx-P, Quest and Skallah to each track following- Thinker never fails to surprise you. The first 3 tracks [my personal favorites] paint a picture of midnight, smoke screened cyphers laced with playback verses from each emcee [my favorites: Tzo, Nixx P]- city classics unheard but so vital and missed in memories of the golden age of hip hop. Especially track 3- "Room" - which ended it all for me. This track is an INSTANT classic and is worth the 7 dollars in its very own. A 9 emcee session catapulted by an oddly addictive sweeping beat from the deep realm of dope. Words dont describe what the track has the power to do to you- let your head do the talking and your eyes do the popping. This track not available for spins is a travesty in its own.

After Room destroys your train of thought- Thinker flips the script and lets you rest your innards with "Nature" [a quasi-jazz infected hypnotists strip tease],"Change" [God's Chocolates spoken beauty over a interlude through time], "Wee Hours" [a coffee house turned funk jungle cypher session feauturing Miles ghost and underrated emcees], and "Sweet Tooth" [a sugary reminsecent journey through past Hendrix summers featuring Skallah]. Each track following the same script of creativity and an ease of worry that good hip hop still exists. And it will repeat in your soundsystem again.

Thinker, a producer born from musical skin, really surprised me with his ability to find new sounds that work well together. Versatility for Thinker and his whole crew is almost too easy for each- but as a listener you will appreciate it after one listen. This EP gives you a variety of listening that you can only recieve with a whole visor holder of cds. Thinker- along with Tzo, Nixx P, Skallah, Conscious, Quest, L Starr, Esco, Whyld, Ignite, and God's Chocolate has pulled off an 11 track gem that now can easily be considered as one of my favorites thus far in 2005.

Thanks to Basement 2 Da Pavement and Thinker for being so...thoughtful...to
the hip hop community.

Overall Rating: 4
Favorite Track: #3 - "Room" [Anthem for 05]

I Suggest You: BUY this album.
