Album Notes
It's fitting that, on an album which mutates hip-hop in jokes into lush, solipsistic psychedelia, one of the first lines is a self-serving Def Jux diss. As a production showcase, "And I Love H.E.R." may just be the diametric opposite of El-P's sound: fleet and uptempo drums where El-P's lumber murkily, samples pluming like silk here where El-P's stab, whine, and thud. That he casts such lofty contrasts, of course, is Danny Swain's entire intent. As often as his rhymes dip into melancholic self-doubt throughout the record, these starbursts of dusty violins and mariachi horns are the expression of an artist in complete control. Hence these manic flights of artistic whimsy: the Guitar Hero solo on "The Groove," the knowing, indulgent lifts from OutKast and A Tribe Called Quest on "I Want H.E.R. (She's So Heavy)", the audacious syncopation of "Do You." Spaced over 17 tracks and 70 minutes, it's a rich listen, demanding headphones but rewarding the investment. In this regard, it's a release that draws as much from post-millennial Chicago rap (probably the closest scene to which we might peg oddball South Carolinian Danny!) as it does Prince Paul's finest mid-'90s output.

Love it!
I'm a new fan, brought to the world of Danny! via a mutual friend. I decided to sample a track and was immediately sold. With some pretty nice beats laying the backdrop, Swain's impeccable flow and honest lyrics are a definite stand-out. Well worth the purchase.


Very solid album all the way through. More like 4 & a half stars, but that wasn't an option. Real hip-hop.


If you're a fan of Danny!, you need this album. The aim of his production is incredibly on, as the sound of most of the tracks are unique, yet still catered to the album very well and have the "D. Swain charm."

Okayplayer's review states that he talks about himself too much on this effort; but honestly, someone that gets disrespected as much this guy and makes music the way he does, he's got a right to.

The only negative I really have with Danny's latest are the skits that are at the end of most tracks. I know the story follows his relationship with a woman (AKA hip hop), and they are well done, but it delays the flow of the rest of the tracks, while giving them some segue as the beat fades in before the tracks end. As I write my feelings, I think they're both positive and negative...

There's no track that stands out as the best, but my favorites are Yoko Ono, I Don't Know, After the Love Has Gone, I Want H.E.R. and The Groove. One cannot go wrong in choosing a favorite. Supreme work, Danny Swain.

I had a few of his albums before this and this ranks up with those. Production is nice. A good listen through some good headphones. "Do You" is my favorite song so far.

4.5 stars - Top 3 of 08
This is up there for hip-hop album of the year right next to the Roots "Rising Down" and Wale's "Mixtape about Nothing." Danny has the wit, charm (no pun intended) and just plain honest lyricism that even indie hip hop is rarely getting anymore. A concept album about love and relationship in all forms, the beats are consistent with great sampling, not to mention strange song names (and lyrics) that somehow end up working: "I call this song Yoko Ono cause this bitch is crazy!", "Taking matters into her own hands like a physicist."
