    Dope shit man! Glad you took your time to craft a great album! I'm hoping this will put to rest the talk that battlers can't make good music.

    35 minutes or something like that? for a full album. cmon son.

    this is the only joint dude releases in what? a decade?

    (almost never) drops/releases/leaks tracks, and can only come up with a handfull of songs on a full release.
    dude must hate making music.
    should be 60 minutes plus to be honest.


    with that being said Murder is the nuts. and goes hard as hell.

    Who did these tags??? LMAO best tags Ive seen in a while...I listened to the entire album and I liked about 75% of the songs. "I'm the Shit" doesn't seem to fit on there and is the worst song imo and "Murder" "Food Chain" and "One Way Road" are my favorite

    I bought a copy from Saurus at Flatline and I've had the chance to listen to it a few times since. I may do a full song-by-song review at a future time, but I'll just give you's the abridged version:

    -Most if not all of The Saurus' verses on the album are executed in expert fashion. Rhyme patterns and syllable structure are really well written and delivered perfectly.

    -I won't comment on how good or bad the beats are, as that is a subjective area, but what I will say is that the beats are all of professional quality. Really clean and crisp all the way through. The same can be said of the vocal recording clarity... no shitty basement studio audio here.

    -10 tracks is a little short for my liking. It's kinda floating somewhere between an LP and an EP.

    -Too many guest appearances for such a short album. Being an anticipated debut release from a world renown battler, I would have liked to have seen more true solo joints on there. I'm going off memory, but I believe 5 of those 10 tracks have a featured rapper on them.

    -A few of the hooks teeter on being corny, but not all of them as theres 1 or 2 that I really like ("I'm the Shit" comes to mind). Kid Twist's "The Saurus's Chorus's" line from WRC's came to mind while I listened to a few of the jam's.



    All in all, I think Pete most certainly should have hushed any doubters who questioned his ability as a song writer/recording artist, and he's laid the foundation down for a strong sophomore release. I can only assume he learned a lot in the process of creating this and I imagine the experience will catapult him to the next level. 6.5/10

    I wanted to do a full review of the album as well but I will only discuss the songs that I feel I am qualified to discuss in depth... I love every song in the album (except for I'm the SHit, sorry, just not my thing

    Overall amazing album IMO tied with gold bricks in the wall for best album released by a battle rapper

    Chase Moore's production is amazing I loved the beats loved the production what can I say, hope to see Chase Moore and The Saurus team up for another album

    Write On Right On

    Poison Ivy

    thats some of the realest shit i've ever heard.. brutally honest... anyone who has ever had anything meaningful and had it fuck up they life knows this song is the truth

    beat on this song is awesome and the song is successful at creating the vibe that it was intended to conjure up

    Top of the food chain

    This song is a poignant memoire of the man who threw himself into far more rap battles than most battlers could handle without shitting the bed... When I watched footage of The Saurus battling in WRC, scribble, tourettes, rap olympics etc, I was astounded by this mysterious figure who seemed to feed off of the aggressive energy and warzone atmosphere of a freestyle battle... Could this really just be easy for him? Or did he truly go through all of the stress and hardship that we could expect from a man who in a span of a few years conquered every major competition in battle rap?

    By any other rapper this song might come off as a bit cheesy but coming from The Saurus, we know his history, and his delivery has so much emotional impact that this song is absolutely convincing and it hits hard

    Ness Lee's verse on this song is suberb and he really continues the emotional pitch that The Saurus started and keeps the momentum of the song continuing perfectly... Ness did the perfect thing he could have done for the song... We witness him have a cathartic moment where all of the sudden all of the hardships he's gone through in the past few hears come flooding back to him in a vision, thereby unleashing all of his emotions on the track.


    One Way Road

    I got so fuckin high during the first listen of this CD I was bobbin my head and raising my fist in the air pumpin it during the hook "Wouldya look at that.. Whatcha lookin at?..." Most danceable song on this album

    Good stuff. The Ness joint was my favorite. I'd like to see you rap about a broader range of topics on the next album. Everything was pretty much about your career and how great you are. I guess that kinda makes sense with the album title, though. haha
