Artist: The Tones
Album: Dreamtalk
Label: Plug
Release Date: December 16, 2009

Hailing from Stockton, California, The Tones debut album can best be described as a journey through aural enlightenment. Comprising of Retro (raps and produces) and Suhn (raps and sings), Dreamtalk is a complete album containing fifteen tracks of soul numbing, thought provoking music. Its actually a bit of a challenge to manifest a negative comment to say about it. If their next album is better, I guess that would qualify. With messages of hope, justice, and social growth, Dreamtalk is can’t miss.  “It would be so good, if rap wasn’t so hood, and we stood for a music that only elevates/ and since we misunderstood, I’m hoping maybe we could, for the good, find a way we can communicate”. This album should be curriculum.

  2. “Most definitely. Hopefully their sophomore album impresses just as
    much. It will be a high bar to pass, its always a tricky situation
    wanting good artists to drop as much good music as possible, yet not
    wanting them to rush it. When it does drop, we will certainly be
    reviewing it here”
