Check it out over at XXL Magazine.

Link: DJ Shadow Knockin’ Doorz Down

I like the Outsider from what I have heard. I think its great when an artist never gets comfortable. Shadow is certainly an ambitious musician and that shows on this record. There will be people that hate this new album and its hyphy sound and I think to some extent Shadow accepts that.

Entroducing of course is classic, always will be, and I think the use of more guest spots, less vocals just highlighs Shadow's ability to produce on this album. He already perfected the instramental record so why keep making one after another?

you know what they say. comfort breeds contempt. when you get comfortable, yr art suffers because the best art comes from struggle [internal or otherwise]. when you stop struggling, yr pretty much dead.

i can see why people are bitching about this album, but they're the same chupas who moan and groan when radiohead didn't make OK Computer II, or when Neil Young didn't do Harvest 2.0

so far, i like it too. it's different and interesting, as he's made himself the backdrop not the man in the spotlight. "old school" DJing, i guess?

also, look for a good DJ Shadow interview in URB magazine [he's rockin' the cover too].
