Album of the Year
(an album by Sleep)
Who would have guessed that the third album to be given a track by track breakdown by The Write Reviews would receive a classic rating?
Literally, this album is amazing from beginning to end. Sleep tells the story of Damon Winton, and the chaos that fills the young man’s life. Each track begins with a police officer, presumably a detective, questioning a social worker about one of the children involved in the social worker’s workload. The detective specifically asks his questions about Damon Winton and the situations he had to deal with growing up. As the social worker concludes her answers, a song begins based on her response.
Sleep’s incredible talent for telling stories in the form of hip hop music is truly on another level. He paints pictures with his word while using his unorthadox, but easy to follow flow and confident, powerful delivery to capture the attention of anyone willing to listen.
This eight track album is also told in a way that has situations and characters everyone can relate with. Sleep does a fantastic job putting the audience in the middle of Damon Winton’s life and forces them to see everything the boy goes through over the years in vivid detail.
