All about his dad and his drug use is really pretty great. The beat is so weird too, such an ambivalent feel and then over the top of it floats this classic Tom Scott mix of anger, grief, pain, neurosis, indignation… and somewhere deep underneath it all, it’s coming from a place of deep care, love and respect and commitment to individual autonomy and anti-authoritarianism. His work speaks to me like almost no other artist – from one angry, frustrated, cocky, occasionally neurotic white guy to another.
Couple of bonuses:
(Incidentally, that last track, Tom’s verse is the only one that manages to establish, develop and reiterate the theme/title of the track! No slight to the other guys, both of whom have rock solid and awesome flow, but we’re talking quite different league of lyricist)
