Beans End It All

Beans End It All
On End It All, Antipop Consortium's Beans proves he is the best at what he does, even if it's hard to define what that is exactly. His mixture of fast rhyming, high-concept lyrics and dense, sometimes jarring electronic beats isn't for everyone, but if you like it, you're going to like it a lot. What makes End It All great is the fact that Beans isn't just weird for the sake of. Songs like "Deathsweater" and "Gluetraps" are solid head-nodders. As abstract as his metaphors are, you can still more or less tell what he's getting at, and he's willing to poke a little fun at his over-the-top wordplay on "Electric Bitch." That said, he's also content to school suckers in his own way on "Blue Movie." End It All is great, in part, because Beans knows he's never going to cross over; he's never going to be a pop star. That frees him up to just do his weird thing, but do it really, really well. (Anticon)
