Ink 19 :: PM Dawn (340 words)
The alternate-astral-plane-dwelling new-age rap figureheads P.M. Dawn are the exception to the rule.
From their inception, P.M. Dawn sounded more like Windham Hill than Sugar Hill, rapping with the abstract heart-on-my-sleeve fractal melodrama of the Smiths over the swooping ethereal dreamscapes of Vangelis, preaching (higher) consciousness to a rap world ambivalent to either.
The Fugees sampled Enya, but P.M. Dawn lived it, and these 10 tracks are a living testament to a hip-hop group who transcended the genre's confines to the point of outliving the expectations of being creatively devoid by four albums.
