It has been a long time since I have felt as much inspiration from an album as I do with Doomtree’s collaboration album No Kings.
I actually have visions, colors, and deep seeded emotions attached to this album. I can listen to a song and have a movie play in my mind. I have nostalgia attached to emotions and memories I have never had. The songs literally create something within me. I get goosebumps and butterflies even after the 20th time I’ve listened to a song. It takes pure musical talent, passion, love, and hard work to give someone those feelings. Its almost hard to explain… I just am, present when I listen to the album. Its as if this art is all that matters in the moment.
To have all seven artists create such an amazing piece of work shows what a family Doomtree really is. So many artists can’t even work with a producer. But these guys (and gal) are the producers. They are the visionaries. They are the musicians. They are everything. No Kings is everything. I mean, even the title- No Kings. There is no hierarchy, no dictator, no ruler. They are doing it together and doing it better than anyone else out there.
And like I said, I am absolutley inspired by the album. Not since the summer of ‘10 was I so enthralled by a cohesive work of music. And while Fixed at Zero by VersaEmerge almost saved my life, No Kings comes at another very important time in my life. I am in transition figuring out what my purpose is, how I am going to make myself happy, and constantly critiquing society. And this album helps me along.
I have never heard such intelligent and poetic lyrics in my life. No matter the genre, gender, or era- lyrics have never moved me so much.
I don’t even know who’s reading this- but if you are, please buy No Kings. It has literally changed me. I want to work for Doomtree so badly its not even funny!!
Excellent commentary on an amazing album.
We kiss goodnight with a firm handshake and it’s lights out for catholic computers.
This is fantastic for you.
I’ve been up at nights to paint the house ghost white.
This is fantastic.
What was in your head when you said ‘until death…’?
Where have you been all my life?
