Scoop Lo has always had the best pipes between his contemporaries of the last 10 years in this business. From his beginnings he has always been able to do more with his music than his rivals seem to do. After his last two successful releases, Scoop Lo who is now trying a new crossover push, with another well-crafted production, and his still formidable mic presence has produced the perfect banging summer album.
“Welcome to Narnia” is loaded with lush soul-funk, pop, alternative, club-ready and dance-hall beats, as once again this artist moves from here to there and everywhere in between, leaving no musical stone unturned. No matter what your flavor of the day is, you’ll be hard pressed to not find one single song you like on this collection.
This is some of Scoop Lo’s best work he has ever done. This is a 5 out 5 star album. The new songs are excellent and they’ll have you up and grooving. Stick on tracks like “Over Here” (Dj Aqueous House Mix) or “Waterfall” (Bicycle Riddim) and see if you can sit still! If you dig rocking out, check “Avenger” with its screaming electric guitar or the edgy, alternative rhythms of “Primal Passion”.
Though for me, the absolute best tracks are the more introspective pop melodies of “Elephants” ft. Brenda M and “Ghost” ft. 720 Media. These songs play so smooth on the ear while Scoop Lo presents us with his intense fault-free flow. The female vocal hooks do the rest to completely capture the listener’s attention. Not far behind comes “Turkish Delights”, with its simmering and sensual delivery.
No doubt Scoop Lo is back with a vengeance and bringing his new album, “Welcome to Narnia” with him. Both the man and his newly released album are hot. He is on top here with some outstanding collaboration. Plus his diction and command of higher level grammar is commendable. Slap that together with his concise and hard-hitting flow and you have a winner. Make sure you cop this album because it’s one of a kind!!!
