This track is timeless
a classic
Some very interesting things going on here, tripped out excellence.
Love the sound and ensemble in this one from the mid-90s. I see why DJ Shadow gets mad respect.
This song is awesome on so many levels. Dude speaks the truth.
Good song, but I don't allow Djs to talk on my stations. (well, maybe a little)
one of DJ shadows best =D
Piano mixed with hip hop beats are an amazing combination.
DJ Shadow is amazing. LOVE this song!
