Fort Minor : Rising Tied Music Review
Fort Minor : Rising Tied is the solo rap album of Mike Shinoda , the rapper from Linkin Park . It is his solo album as a rapper and going by the music he has done an excellent job . Mike Shinoda along with Ryu and Tak (Styles of Beyond) , have joined forces to create a group of the same name .
In this album he has created a whole new approach at music , sticking to the traditional hip hop . He has created every beat and played every instrument for this album so all the songs will have quite a similar feel .
The tracks which are there are
- Remember the name
- Right Now
- Feel Like Home
- Where’d you go
- In Stereo
- Beleive me
- Get me Gone
- High Road
- Red to Black
- The Battle
- SLip out the back
Out if these “Remember the name” is my favourite , the beats of the track is great and in this the artists tries to explain what makes them tick . “Back Home ” laces the listener with tales of what happens around the corner . “Where’d you go (featuring Holy Brook)” sort of deals with what women goes through when there husbands are away . ” Petrified” and “Slip out of the back” have quite a Linkin park type feel to it . ” Cigarettes ” is a comparsion between rap and smoke as Shinoda analyzes how we buy both . The choir in the background gives an eerie sound as Mike delives a perfect pace flow . ” Get me Gone ” tells how tough it is being in Linkin Park . ” The Battle ” features a 30 second indie rap .
My Thoughts : The album aint that bad . It is sort of an journey through the mind of Shinoda , who is an excellent singer and has got an excellent hip hop spirit . Fans of LP are going to eat this up , and might be surprised that how well Shinoda has made a hip hop album . The surprise is that Jay Z hasnt sung a line in the whole album . Overall it proves that the guy is capable of leading a Hip Hop group and a rock band .
Best Tracks : Remember the name , Right Now , Petrified , Cigarettes
