Quakers - Quakers

Quakers is a collective consisting of 35 artists with the producers Geoff Barrow, 7-Stu-7 (Portishead's engineer) and Australian producer Katalyst as the musical backbone. Amongst the emcees we find people such as Guilty Simpson, Dead Prez, Dave Dub, MED, Prince Po and Aloe Blacc. Yes, we're talking about a literal superteam consisting of some of the finest emcees we have today. And the 41 song long album is solid quality all the way through. 
We get the bangers, the more soulful tracks as well as the more bouncy beats and it all melts together as a very good mixtape. And that is kind of the only problem with this. It doesn't really feel like a "real" album, it sounds like a mixtape and nothing else. But with that being said I also have to say that few mixtapes out there ever come close to the quality of this one. Definitely worth checking out!.

Rating: 7/10
