    Thought Never Better was weak compared the older one – Ipecec Neat (sic)… only tracks on find myself listening to again on that is Optimist and Goodbye and the title track. The Doomtree collective album is far better IMO, in fact Sims album is probably better than Never Better, though that may have been released in ’08.

    Memory also fails on whether The Old Prince by Shad K dropped this year or last, if this year, I’d stick in the top ten. Every track on that album is something different.

      The Old Prince was 2008, as was the Doomtree one (which I also like). I haven’t heard the Sims one yet, and in fact I haven’t heard the other P.O.S one you mention, but will check it out.
