Amoeba Review

Underground wordsmith pens a tribute to his old Chicago housing project on his sixth studio LP, the poetically titled Brick Body Kids Still Daydream. Starting with the subdued and soulful “Legendary Iron Hood,” Open Mike Eagle guides us through this rough and tumble environment without bluster or boasting, but arms himself instead with a laid-back and frequently humorous flow. The beats combine dusty samples with an affection for spacey, dubby synth noises; achieving an almost hypnotic effect when paired with Eagle’s laconic raps. Yet despite the low-key atmosphere, this album is enlivened by power of his wit and vivid imagination. Open Mike Eagle is the smart kid in the back of the class, quiet yet loaded with wisecracks. Listen to that dude, you'll be better off for it.
