Xodus ... CD Polydor, 1992. Used ....
Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second full length from the Grand Verbalizer Brother J, Professor X and crew, which while still heavy on the Afro-mystic imagery, suffers a bit from the usual X-Clan problems of overused samples and too many Vangloriouses. However, "Fire & Earth", with the traditional gospel sample (as performed by Ry Cooder?), is worth the price of the ticket. Other tracks include "Funk Liberation", "Rhythem Of God", "Verbal Papp", "Cosmic Ark", "A.D.A.M.", and "Foreplay". CD
The movie maybe a goofy, if undeniably amusing pop culture relic, but the Polydor soundtrack is a genuine win! This is an album that doubtlessly brought breakdance and old school hip hop culture into the eyes of middle America – but what helps it stand the test of time are some solid non-hip hop cuts like "Ain't Nobody" by Rufus & Chaka Khan, "Freakshow On The Dance Floor" by The Bar-Kays, the smooth club hit "99 1/2" by Carol Lynn Townes, "Body Work" by Hot Streak and produced by Jellybean. Also includes "Reckless" by The Glove featuring vocals by Ice T. LP, Vinyl record album
