GHOSTFACE KILLAH / Twelve Reasons To Die [2013]

Wu-Tang Clan's Ghostface Killah and multi-instrumentalist/producer Adrian Younge team up on the 70's slasher flick inspired 2013 concept album Twelve Reasons To Die.
Sounding like a funkified soul tribute to Ennio Morricone, Younge mixes the album in such a dry way it's quite effective as it warms the ears like the faded pastel colors of a giallo film.  Deteriorated piano lines, waves of wobbly organ chords and soothing string sections confirms Younge is a master craftsmen.  While GFK's delivery is on fire as always with his tongue in cheek lyrics that results in a fuckin' bloodbath by the end of the immensely entertaining album.
