The Cool Kids- When Fish Ride Bicycles (Album)
Best album of 2011, fuck, this is THIER best effort since The Bake Sale (and I fucking love Tacklebox and Gone Fishing). I mean, it's solid from top to bottom as expected. The production is miles ahead of the competition and the two Neptunes' tracks are ingenious. It's now clear that Chuck and Michael have actually developed and improved as rappers significantly in the past few years. The guest features are perfectly selected (Bun B, Asher Roth, Chip Tha Ripper, Boldy James, Ghostface Killah, Pharrell, the list goes on...). It's a real summery album, except "Bundle Up" which came out this winter. It's just really good. The beats are just really really really good.
