For more than a year we have been patiently waiting for Killah Priest's promised double album, "The Psychic World of Walter Reed". While we were getting a lot of dope singles and short music videos, jokeful comments was made about the album never materializing at all. Luckily for us, Priest's more ambitious project is finally here; and it's a double disc as promised. I haven't tooken the time to listen to all of the 42 tracks yet but from what I've heard personally and the reviews I've read I'm willing to bet money it's a pretty damn fantastic album.
One of the official videos of music that actually appear on the two discs is "The Winged People" which as usual features brilliant lyricism with a message that's both introspective, and spiritual without losing its street element. The production is gorgeous, handled by a St. Peter who creates a somber track for Priest's vocals with an array of low-key instrumentation. "The Psychic World of Walter Reed" is out now on CD and in digital format. The 2xCD is only available directly through Killah Priest's official site for $21 excluding shipping (yeah, it's a little steep, but remember that it's 42 songs); or you can pick it up via iTunes if you want to support the cause, and you should (the price here is $15)!
