Home Bass > BACKBURNER: Awesome reviews galore!

Heatwave has been out for a little less than a week but the reviews have been coming in pretty fast, and they’ve been really rather good. Thank you to all of our friends and fans writing nice things about the crew and the album. Your honest – and kind – words are always appreciated. Of course the first one to hit the net was the Exclaim review (found a few posts earlier), but these other four reviews are equally as pleasing to the eyes:


Writing for website 411Mania.com, Micheal Ornelas gave Heatwave a near perfect 9.9/10, but ultimately he describes the album as:

“The bottom line is that some of the best rappers (with whom you’re likely unfamiliar) came together and created an album so dense with great lyrics and rhymes that you’ll discover something new every time you hear a song.”

Dan Gorman was excited to get a review of Heatwave up on the website for Two Way Monologues, sister event to $5 Rap Show at Rancho Relexo, and aside from comparing it to Jurassic 5’s Quality Control, he also had other nice things to say about the album, too, such as:

“Here’s a bucket full of MCs and DJs who are all stacked with talent coming together to create a crazily enjoyable rap record.”

And Heatwave is also enjoying a fair share of positive reviews from the Nerdcore community. Over at Nercore.co, Wyrfxrssn calls Heatwave “an instant classic” and rates it 9/10. He further adds:

“So little is wrong with this album that something huge must be wrong with someone who doesn’t enjoy it. Each member brings a unique style…”

And finally, but actually, really the second review to see the light of day, Roundtable Reviewers Kaiju, Kincade and XoC provide a detailed, track-by-track review, but it’s Kaiju who sums it up best when he says:

“Everyone needs to cop this album.”
