the new bubba sparxxx album is...

...really fucked up.

the first 1/4 is like straight up country, cut with beats. and in the middle of the hoedown tim will drop a snippet of "work it." there's a track that clones r kelly's "snake". and one where tim beatboxes "she'll be coming round the mountain."

strongo hulkington (dubplatestyle), Tuesday, 19 August 2003 23:00 (11 years ago) Permalink

and "deliverance" of course which is BEAUTIFUL and not "reheated everlast" or whatever simon "cloth ears" reynolds said.

strongo hulkington (dubplatestyle), Tuesday, 19 August 2003 23:02 (11 years ago) Permalink

is tim using bubba as a free form practice ground for really crazy ideas, since no one would really care if the album tanked?

rob geary (rgeary), Tuesday, 19 August 2003 23:08 (11 years ago) Permalink

beatboxed 'comin round the mountain' sounds like pure genius

rob geary (rgeary), Tuesday, 19 August 2003 23:09 (11 years ago) Permalink

also there's the same old skool vibe as on under construction but it's surfacing in weird ways.

heh, rob that's always been my theory about bubba, actually.

strongo hulkington (dubplatestyle), Tuesday, 19 August 2003 23:09 (11 years ago) Permalink

he's biting em's flow HAAAAARRDDD on "overcome"

strongo hulkington (dubplatestyle), Tuesday, 19 August 2003 23:11 (11 years ago) Permalink

yeah, i can just imagine them in the studio. tim: "ok bubba. i used all the sure-fire hit stuff with missy. but don't worry, i've got this mandolin thing, and this baby gurgling sample, and maybe i'll beatbox a little bit. oh and if that doesn't work we'll just sample the last missy hit in the middle." bubba: "well, it worked last time"

rob geary (rgeary), Tuesday, 19 August 2003 23:12 (11 years ago) Permalink

plus there's a whole song devoted to - as the opening goes - "a lot of you was thinking that bubba would disappear/get some money from 'ugly', buy a keg of beer", a track which also opens inexplicably with a snatch of the cold crush or something.

strongo hulkington (dubplatestyle), Tuesday, 19 August 2003 23:13 (11 years ago) Permalink

heh, don't get me wrong though: it's really good! it's interesting though that they'd stick all the country-fried songs at the very beginning which almost guarantees it tanks in the market but also kind of a cop out since the rest of it is pretty straight up.

strongo hulkington (dubplatestyle), Tuesday, 19 August 2003 23:14 (11 years ago) Permalink

my favorite song is comin round, i completely lost it the first time i heard that, its so wonderful, with that fiddle or whatever loop and then it goes away in the middle for timb BWHHH-BHFFHFHF stuff and then it CAME BACK for the third verse and i nearly cried...everyone ive played it for doesnt know what to make of it

*Another* potential album of the year?! Sounds like the new Outkast has some competition in the "Oh GOSH, we are so fucked up, we're seeing some shit and we're putting it on wax!" stakes.

'In Da Mud' is on the record, right? I really got into that one. 'Deliverance' and 'Jimmy Mathis' are nearly as good as Kiley's 'Keep It Moving'. I think she's a guest on the record too.

I have high hopes for this, commercially as well as sonically. I'm one of those dudes who thought 'Lovely' was underrated after all.

picked this up today for $6.99 even though i didn't really like "Deliverance" the couple times i heard it (not too into the acoustic guitar in hip hop like Cadilac on 22s). really digging it now listening to the whole thing.

so far greatest moment is in the intro someone humming Cream's "I Feel Free"

It's out here now. To very little fanfare tho', just like Dark Days, Bright Nights was sneaked out eventually. Pathetic.

Liking it a lot so far. I loved the debut too but this one really has the courage of its convictions. Good also that Timbaland didn't feel the need to double track the vocals this time out.

Also, 'Nowhere' is one of the most emotional and loveliest songs I've heard this year for all its gritty rapping. Kiley Dean is great on the hook. This rekkid really is some of Tim's best work, don'tcha all think?

Barima (Barima), Thursday, 16 October 2003 10:33 (11 years ago) Permalink

the Daily Telegraph, of all people, made it LP of the week last weekend. Their Saturday review section looks pretty good actually. Better than the bleedin' G******* anyways

zebedee (zebedee), Thursday, 16 October 2003 11:19 (11 years ago) Permalink

Way better than the first, although that also had its moments. This time around they are taking the country/hip hop fusion seriously. No tongue in cheek. Only greatness.

'She Tried' is probably the first ever credible rap country ballad.

I love this record! Bubba is a fine rapper and Timba is just way ahead everyone else, including the bleedin' Neptunes. Much love!

Jay Kid (Jay K), Thursday, 16 October 2003 11:35 (11 years ago) Permalink

In terms of sonic invention and out and out crazeeness, Tim was always ahead of the Neps, who have a generally catchier vibe to their shit and the willingness to work with EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE. If Kiley worked with them instead of Tim, Interscope probably wouldn't be having her change her record, allegedly for being too 'black-sounding'.

Barima (Barima), Thursday, 16 October 2003 14:03 (11 years ago) Permalink

"Kiley's too black-sounding for me." < /Patrick Bateman>

Also, maybe I'm misguided but 'Jimmy Mathis' and 'Comin' Round' would make great UK singles, maybe even decent charting ones.

You're right Barima, unless the UK hates great, catchy songs. I don't see how anyone could not like "Jimmy Mathis," at least for a little while.

Is there a thread on the new album "The Charm" yet? I think it's mediocre at best, and thoroughly disappointing.

Josh in Chicago (Josh in Chicago), Sunday, 5 March 2006 22:45 (8 years ago) Permalink

You're right about disappointing, though it might be slightly better than mediocre.

From LAST year's country thread (and I think from hip-hop thread last year too):

So far, I'm liking the new album, but I'm also pretty disappointed by it; there doesn't seem to be any country-oriented stuff, which sucks, but I guess Bubba has to move on. So far my favorite track is "Wonderful," but that could change. The Pablo track's good, too.
-- xhuxk (xedd...), October 24th, 2005.

Actually i think its that country-motif stuff that was painting him into a corner
-- deej.. (clublonel...), October 24th, 2005.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Maybe, but that doesn't mean it wasn't his best stuff. (Plus, I'm not sure *why* it would paint him into a corner. There's as much possibility in incorporating country as in *not* incorporating country. And there's definitely more possibility in incorporating both country *and* non-country. Getting rid of it makes his horizons *less* wide, not more.) (That goes for David Banner too, by the way.)
-- xhuxk (xedd...), October 24th, 2005.


-- xhuxk (xedd...), October 25th, 2005.

Also, no Timbaland, which deej also seemed to think takes Bubba out of a corner, though I don't see why that would be true either, given Timbos perpetual restlessness. Maybe those who think the restlessness is un-Bubbalicious would expect him to shine without it, but paint'n'corner seems to be the wrong metaphor.

-- Frank Kogan (edcasua...), October 25th, 2005.

------
Actually, I don't think Frank had heard the new album then, though. And the version I was listening to last October was a "rough mix," and since then, two ignorable songs from the original version have been replaced by two different equally ignorable songs on the new one. I still want to think the album's a keeper, but maybe that's just wishful thinking. Whether it's a keeper or not, it's by far the worst and most marginal album Bubba's made.

I left off of mama's with my thumb in the wind
The leaves on the ground, winter's comin again
Solid on the surface as I crumble within
But legends are made out of vulnerable men
So on the brink of death I still manage livin life
Cause so rarely in this world are these chances given twice
I indeed sold my soul, without glancing at the price
No instructions when I was handed this device
But with what I did get, I was more than generous
Put others over self on several instances
But I'm back on my feet without a hint of bitterness
And one way or another I shall have deliverance

EVERYONE Have NONE of you heard the pre-album mixtape for this? It was called New South and it's not the one you can get on iTunes which is some random Greg Street compilation. It's a 19 track affair entirely produced by Timbaland with mostly Bubba but also "the Muddkatz" - Duddy Ken, Attitude, RIcky Rucker, Kiley Dean, Petey Pablo and it's all really damn good. All originals except for 'In the Mudd' which is a remix of In da Club by 50.

You can hear it for free here - http://grooveshark.com/#!/playlist/DJ+Enuff+and+Timbaland+Present+Bubba+Sparxxx+and+The+Mudd+Katz+New+South+The+Album+B4+The+Album/66065631 - but I will find a way to get a copy to y'all if you want. I don't know where I originally got it.

Oh man! I'd love a copy. Heard it once, never got a copy for myself.

entirely produced by timbo?

well this should be a good indication of whether he has anything left in the tank or not

i may or might not liveblog this

"Band Leader" is pretty cool. The first few tracks sounded awfully similar production-wise, but for a pre-album mixtape, what can you expect, I guess.

his percussion/drums still knock harder than anyone else's when he tries tho, as "tell me ya wit it" attests to

heiswagger (rennavate), Saturday, 11 August 2012 00:27 (2 years ago) Permalink

awesome farty horns that almost sound like spongy, squishy synths on "tell me about the south"... and operatic background OOHHHOOOOHHHS!

is that polow da don rapping on "put it on me"?

heiswagger (rennavate), Saturday, 11 August 2012 00:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

lol @ timbo's "damn how long is this song?" at the BEGINNING of the 3-minute "that's him" and the track's made of these really short three-note guitar licks, stays outta the way of the rapping but they're catchy on their own

this isn't from now - it's from back in the day. right before deliverance came out in 2003.

twinkin' and drinkin' and ready to fly (Alex in Montreal), Saturday, 11 August 2012 00:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

but if you haven't heard deliverance, you should be rest assured that it's like this but most of the time even better.

oh no i'm a dumbass i thought there was a new timbo-produced bubba album coming out :(

i like deliverance but bubba isn't a favorite rapper or anything

heiswagger (rennavate), Saturday, 11 August 2012 00:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

and i thought this was new. don't laugh too hard

heiswagger (rennavate), Saturday, 11 August 2012 00:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

i mean this is hard enough to track down that it may as well be. :)
