I'd prob say Can'tLetGo (or Chasin'Doves) was my favorite. Loved all it tho. I've gotta thank you for turning me on to Blu. The first time I heard the end of Amnesia that goes like - "My intent, definitive days that turn my nights to fiction, friction-less, just a pen tryna pimp this stress, cause I couldn't keep a lid on my life, Naive as the dry leaves on the ground, looking past the tree to the blue sky asking 'why me?'" - I was instantly hooked.
yeah, i liked that delorean album too. as for the four tet? major disappointment IMO. felt less organic, more robotic than his previous works; the thing that really separated him from the crowd is now gone.
