Heaven Only Knows
Label: EMI Music Canada
Rapper/singer/producer k-os hits the scene with an LP that's both impressive and nearly impossible to categorize. Stylistically all over the map, the album includes raw rap throw-downs ("Fantastique"), smoky reggae jams ("Superstarr Part 1"), and inspirational ballads ("Patience"). Positive lyricism and skilled live instrumentation add to the kaleidoscopic musical vibe.
