DJ Shadow - Preemptive Strike
I am pretty late on the DJ Shadow bandwagon, but consider me on there now. Shadow makes more than trip-hop albums, he makes complete experiences. Preemptive Strike is an album of Shadow's pre-label material. The four part song "What Does Your Soul Look Like" is basically a progressive rock opus, using the varied sources that Shadow is known for. Jazz, Funk, Rock, Hip Hop, and other bits and pieces are all par for the course. My recommendation wait till night turn off all the lights, turn up the stereo and get ready to travel to where only Shadow can take you. Enjoy.
