To me this is an example of a perfect album. Whether or not you "feel" all the tracks, it's very hard to argue that any of them are filler. I've really grown to love this album. The poignant moments are amazing see Yesterday, The Waitress, and the slap in the face tracks like The Skinny, Your Glass House, give the album a great emotional balance. This is live instrumentation used brilliantly. I especially like the slide guitar on Painting, it reminds me of the Sleepwalker song. This is definitely the best album of 2008 in my humble opinion.

From what I have heard, this is album is the basic definition of Suburban Whiteboy rap.

It appears as somethiing I wouldn't waste my time listening to. Some one prove me wrong for stereotypiong this duo from Minnesota.

sHOULD i BOTHER
? iF SO, WHAT TRACKS DO YOU RECOMMEND?

This album is fucked, I gave it a spin once last novemeber for the first time and wasnt really feelin it and never played it again till about a month ago. Now I've had it on solid rotation for the past month, this is as close as an album can get to the 'classic' term

Just started to play this album.

I can't stop playing the song 'Yesterday' it's a classic track imo.

I've tried abit of Atmosphere's other stuff but I can't get into it at all.

Dunno, check out "Yesterday", or "The Painting".

The fact that you automatically assume that its the definition of white boy suburaban rap makes you sound like a fag, and the fact that your so fuckin close minded. YOU are exactly whats wrong with most hip-hop today.

Yes, this album isnt hard, or gangsta, theirs no talk of violence, sex, drugs, guns, its just a great album, with great storys, musically its fantastic, with great varity of sounds, and it is exactly what hip-hop needs right now. Best album of '08.

I just put this on again yesterday and its as good as the first time i heard it. That guitar thing they use on "The Painting" is absoloutly beautiful.

Yeah, this album is excellent. I still play it front to back from time to time. Replay value, content, production.. This album got it all.
