DOOMTREE / No Kings [2011]

It's not often that punk rock hip-hoppers Doomtree release an album as a complete collective, so their 3rd album No Kings is a noteworthy release of 2011.
It's filled with a thickly layered production quality, vocals attacking you from all sides (P.O.S.'s work here is magnificent) and an attitude that is one part Fugazi and one part Wu-Tang Clan.
With 7 different creative forces at work here it can get a little heavy and bloated at times but it's a hardly a problem with some of the best work coming out of the Doomtree since 2007's False Hopes.
