Instrumental beat brilliance from rapper/producer Oddisee. Following 2012's People Hear What They See, The Beauty In All continues Oddisee's sonic journey into soulful and introspective beats with a hopeful, true school aesthetic. As with his other albums, this one is all about good vibes. There's something earnest and true about these beats, that is lacking in a lot of current hip-hop production and makes for a rewarding listen all the way through. From Oddisee himself - "This record is dedicated to imperfection and the sense of pride & accomplishment we get from our struggles. Hopefully, you listen to this record, reflect on the ups & downs of life, and see the beauty in all." Reissued for the album's 10th anniversary on indie exclusive purple vinyl, recommended.
