Review - The Return of Jack Splash!

Artist: The Plant Life

You just knew they had to be out there. You knew that, somewhere, there were a handful of freaky-ass kids who grew up listening to Stevie Wonder and actually understood what The Secret Life of Plants was all about. This L.A. crew is affiliated with the weirder side of that city's hip-hop underground, and the sound they concoct is as much neo-soul and post-rap as it is psychedelic funk. Rich and thoughtful rhythmic structures are laid underneath scattershot lyrical visions and fractured rhyme schemes, but somehow, it's cohesive and infinitely inspiring; though there are a tremendous amount of ideas (not to mention deep and organic grooves), the album's 19 tracks fly by effortlessly.
