Record review: Rick Ross – Barack Odama

a2758916660_10Barack Odama offers a wide variety of music including house, electronic and hip-hop and is certainly best suited to those who enjoy trying out new things.

The first word that comes to mind when describing this album is interesting, it isn’t what you first expect, it’s an album that many people may ignore, however, regardless of what type of music you enjoy, it definitely stands out.

Each track provides a different sound, a credit, as many artists would struggle to create such a diversity of sound in a whole career.

The very upbeat ‘Love Me’ stands out with what sounds like a church bell going off in the background, and you soon start to notice that your head is nodding to the music, especially when the beat kicks in.

When ‘January 55th’ begins it sounds like the music that was used in the Rockstar game, L.A. Noire, and then a variety of different sounds are put together some that sound like chimes and water.

‘Selling An Entire Year’ is one of the more peaceful tracks here, there is something very soothing and relaxing about it, a beautiful combination of sounds, so simple but excellent.

Barack Odama is unusual but there is something extraordinary about it, many of the tracks here are great although some have the tendency to feel like background music, but In all the album offers a mixture of upbeat and relaxing tracks allowing its listeners to have more variety, definitely an album worth listening to.
