ALBUM REVIEW: Skyscraper Stereo- You Can’t Do That on Television

Louisville’s Skyscraper Stereo recently released their second album, You Can’t Do That on Television, and it is one that you should check out (grab a copy at ear x-tacy).  This album blends old-school hip-hop with samples that would make Public Enemy proud.  Spin Magazine decribed them as “a much needed spanking to the Louisville hip-hop scene” and SS shows love for the city with the track “502 (I Love You).”  They even brought in our favorite local DJ duo, Azns n Bnzs, for the track “Get By.”  There is no question that the samples drive this album, but SS’s laid back, yet carefully constructed rhymes and danceable beats set this effort apart from other’s who have tried in the past.  Just throw the CD on and enjoy all the way through.  No track skipping necessary.

Track List:

  1. Intro
  2. 502 (I Love You)
  3. I’ll Be Good to You
  4. Bust Out Your Jeans
