    Product Details

    Summary

    The Tones are progressive masters in the creation of soulful and honest hip hop in its most appealing form. Being compared to the likes of Common, Kanye West, Blackstar, Tribe Called Quest, Slum Village, and Little Brother, many might wonder how such a sound can be derived from the California Bay Area.

    This versatile duo consists of rapper-producer, Retro, and rapper-singer, Suhn who can sing anything from soul music to opera. 'Dreamtalk' is an album about pursuing dreams and living through the struggles and pleasures encountered on the way. It also gives motivation to others in pursuit of their dreams. 'Dreamtalk' challenges the hip hop community with potent content. With rhymes and vintage beats, The Tones are here to deliver a classic album.

    Since the group first formed in 2001, The Tones have toured with the likes of Common, Slum Village, Little Brother, Roots' drummer QuestLove, and Dr. Cornell West. In addition, the Tones have been creating a huge buzz on the internet and on blogs as well as receiving a cosign from grammy nominated rapper/actor COMMON with comments such as "The Tones are some real soulful brothers."

    Comment: Great album from start to finish...monotone flow reminds me of camp lo, But the lyrics make sense. Production is very soulful and melodic. Kinda like Tribe w/ a more hardcore feel in terms of the emcees delivary. Happy I ordered it.

    Comment: Definitely a good album, but over-rated by these other reviewers. Lyrically it's kind of on the light side, and too monotone. Production is about 4 stars and overall I'd give it 3.5 stars.

    Comment: this is seriously a dope album. it can be played from beginning to end. the rhymes are ill, the beats are bangin, the vocals are on point. Though all the tracks are dope, title track "Dreamtalk" to me is the best. it has a classic pete rock-ish type of vibe. others that stuck out were "if you could change" and "searching". They also have some classic tracks for the ladies, but they still keep it hip hop. these cats are the next LB.
