The New Danger [Clean Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
When it takes you five years to follow up a debut of near-landmark stature, you're setting yourself up for failure. Mos Def's second solo album is not disastrous, but it's a sprawling, overambitious mess. A handful of songs from this 75-minute affair feature Black Jack Johnson, the rock band Mos set up with some very respected musicians: bassist Doug Wimbish Sugar Hill house band, Living Colour, drummer Will Calhoun Living Colour, guitarist Dr. Know Bad Brains, and keyboardist Bernie Worrell Parliament/Funkadelic.

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
When it takes you five years to follow up a debut of near-landmark stature, you're setting yourself up for failure. Mos Def's second solo album is not disastrous, but it's a sprawling, overambitious mess. A handful of songs from this 75-minute affair feature Black Jack Johnson, the rock band Mos set up with some very respected musicians: bassist Doug Wimbish Sugar Hill house band, Living Colour, drummer Will Calhoun Living Colour, guitarist Dr. Know Bad Brains, and keyboardist Bernie Worrell Parliament/Funkadelic. Unsurprisingly, the hottest moments tend to come when Mos sticks to what he does best. One slight exception to this is "Modern Marvel," a nine-minute suite smeared with a series of Marvin Gaye samples. Mos sings in whispers he makes Pharrell sound like Luther, but he has the required spirit, momentum floats in as easy as a light breeze, and then the MC shifts into goose pimple-raising mode. Throughout the whole thing, his conviction is apparent. [A clean version of the album was released, with all cursing removed.]
