A polished, lumbering beast of an album. Not so much concerned with peaks and troughs as with a steady, charismatic drone of all things Compton.
It has its lulls, but when Straight Outta Compton blows hot it feels unstoppable. N.W.A. modelled a spirit of expression impossible to ignore.
Midnight Marauders’ tracklist is an exhibition of seemingly boundless creativity, each track distinct, original, and memorable.
