This hip-hop “super-group,” hailing from Montreal, is a 9-member international (Algeria, Argentina, Chile, France, & Haiti) and multilingual crew. They really hit that ‘multilingual’ part home incorporating 2-3 languages into pretty much every song, as well as a bit of patois thrown in for good measure (no Jamaicans in the group). The amalgamation of cultures adds an interesting texture.
But Nomadic Massive sounds like a Canadian hip-hop album, which 9 times out of 10 isn’t a good thing and, unfortunately, this record sticks to the rule. The production quality is fine but the actual product does nothing for me. Lyrically it’s run-of-the-mill (at least the parts that I understand). Dare I say this might as well be background music for one of our crappy TV shows? Consider it said. – Candice B.
