We were two tracks deep into Reflection Eternal's upcoming, extraordinarily long-awaited "Revolutions Per Minute" album ("Just Begun" and "In This World") and I was already worried. To clarify, I'm not really worried about Talib Kweli and DJ Hi-Tek's ability to turn out quality music, I'm worried about me. See, their "Train of Thought" was one of those albums that I listened to until the CD wore out (remember cds?), so I can already feel myself recoiling from anything from the guys that doesn't sound like that classic work. Of course I wouldn't really want them to sound like they did a decade ago, they should and need to evolve musically, but it's just been so long....

Let me see if I can put this another way. My ten year high school reunion just happened, and at that reunion I saw a girl (now a woman) there who I used to have a huge crush on. In the decade since I saw her last sure, she'd put on a few pounds, but she was definitely still beautiful, and undoubtedly a more mature, intelligent and interesting person than she was in high school. Still, I couldn't help but reminisce about what used to be.

So basically that was the world's most roundabout way of saying that there's a new Reflection Eternal track featuring Estelle, it's called "Midnight Hour" and it doesn't sound anything like anything on "Train of Thought". I'm not sure how to feel about it yet. You? Oh, and "Revolutions Per Minute" drops May 18. Mark your calendars.
