Album Notes

Press and Media Reviews about Lenzmen albums and music

The Lenzmen are a great hip-hop group from Long Island, NY. Their sound combines highly technical production with dense lyrics, which is to me a good thing. The beats are an interesting mix of sampling and synths that have been tortured beyond belief. The producer for the group, Dynamics Plus, is a bit of a gear junky and this is evident in his music. He likes to bring lots of different sounds to a given song. He also has an interesting style of drum programming. Yes, I said it. He actually puts thought into his drum programming! Lyrically, any one of these guy is strong enough to carry an entire album…and have. See their discography for evidence. The tone fluctuates between highly conceptual story songs to harsh sci-fi inflected battle rhymes to freestyles that are better worded than most peoples writtens. They augment all of the above with self-produced music videos. Really words don’t do these guys justice. Just check out the site and see if they are your cup of tea.

Critical Beatdown Magazine:

The lenzmen are a crew made up of members Dynamics Plus, Doctor Strange, Centri and Earthadox and each member displays their own individual scientific flow superbly on this album. Granted, this album isn't the most easy listening LP out right now but if you are like me, you like to hear good quality hip-hop music from a group who like to break boundaries and take it to another level with their beats and rhymes then this album is definitely for you. When it comes to lyrical skills there's no denying the quality of the Lenzmen. Each member tries to take it to that next level every time they grab the mice and spit lyrics that have you reaching for the rewind button to listen more closely to what they just said..

Grind Mode magazine:

"New York based sci-fi Hip-Hop makes a return with the four-man outfit The Lenzmen and their latest journey into the unknown. Sounding like a head-on collision between Kool Keith, MF Doom and Company Flow the progressive sound of The Lenzmen flips between highly lyrical wordplay and space-age interludes designed to tie the whole affair together. Overall fans of underground independent labels may want to check this..."
