INSPECTAH DECK, 7L & ESOTERIC / Czarface [2013]

Wu-Tang Clan's Inspectah Deck and hip-hop duo 7L & Esoteric join forces to form the superhero inspired  2013 concept album Czarface.
Heavily inspired by the gritty, menacing '90's East Coast sound, Czarface can't be taken seriously with it's large use of cheesy cartoon samples and nerdy comic book references galore.  7L's production is bouncy, clean and shining with confidence whereas Deck & Esoteric's vocals, while good, don't really differentiate from each other from song to song and eventually gets a little too samesy after 6 or 7 tracks.
A solid and fun album with just a few minor quips that shouldn't take away from the listening enjoyment.
