Amoeba Review

Philly soul maestro Bilal Oliver can sing like hell, but his real talent is for introspective, trippy abstract funk, and A Love Surreal delivers that wrapped up in a candy-colored bow. The freaky synths and stuttering percussion evoke territory explored by Dam-Funk, J. Dilla, Madlib or Ariel Pink, but when Bilal's assured, aggrieved tenor busts out all over the mix, you know you're in his world. The singing is wondrously creative, shifting from humorous to paranoid to sensitive with the facility of Prince or Andre 3000. With so much stadium-pounding R&B out there, it's nice to hear some warm, weird, tripped-out funk and a questing, experimenting singer who can let his voice run free. Let this be your love surreal!
