Fresh Breath Committee

Emerging from an already vibrant hip-hop scene, the aptly dubbed Fresh Breath Committee presents a classic-feeling album filled with fluid grooves, sublime beats, indefatigable hooks and thoughtful wordplay. With a measured confidence in their cadence, the all-star cast of MCs complement each other without detracting from their individual flow, allowing the soulful vocals of Crystal to elevate the sound. Unlike the vapid posturing typical of so much rap, the songs here have substance, whether the Committee is grappling with unfaithfulness or simply reflecting on life matters. With only minor missteps (the Planet Rock vibe of "All Mighty Men," as sequenced, breaks up the overall continuity), CPR is a strong contender for hip-hop album of the year.
