Golden Era
Critical Mass
Release Date: April 19, 2011
Label: The Council

by christopherschultz

The sixth commercial release from Del the Funky Homosapien presents athletic rhyming in marathon form. A monstrous 142 minutes, spanning three CDs (the new Golden Era plus heretofore Internet-only releases Funk Man and Automatik Statik), it's a seemingly endless showcase for Del's noisy, high-bpm, pre-Chronic beatwork and formidable, fine-tuned verbal chops. But without the insightful everydude chitchat of his 1991 debut or the alluring weirdness of the Automator-produced Deltron 3030, Golden Era is the rap version of a Zappa triple-vinyl guitar solo.
