“Prarie Dog Day”
Hands down the second best LP to hit the streets this year, Onry Ozborn of Grayskul and producer Zavala dropped “ANX” in mid-summer yet it took me until the week of Thanksgiving this year to uncover this masterful, well-crafted gem. ”ANX”, which is short for anxiety, is produced unlike any other LP I’ve heard this year, Zavala deserves all the props in the world for his uniqueness and daring ventures. Far from the average, and a beautiful display of bipolar thoughts and lyricism meshed beautifully with elements of Hip-Hop, Jazz and Electro, “ANX” seemingly gets better from the opening intro “Hosana In The Highest” (which is the only skippable material on here)
Not one to ever be an Onry “stan”, this album has me open to all his prior workings. Not only is “Dark Time Sunshine” sequenced/produced/delivered masterfully, it is quickly approaching “Album of The Year” status for me, hot on the heels of Kendrick’s latest opus. I dare you to find me a better 3 song sequence than that of “Overlordian” (f. P.O.S.), “Prairie Dog Day” and “I’ll Be Damned”. The production handled by Zavala is very daring, innovative and probably the best I’ve heard this year! Don’t sleep for so long as I did.
