New: Saigon - Down The Road

Download: Saigon - Down The Road

Saigon's decided to continue the pattern of leaving album quality material OFF his album. his joint here sees Saigon hop back on (did he ever hop off?) his social commentary soapbox and he doesn't disappoint. The chorus is an interesting feature, it's like they took a polished, clean chorus and then roughed it up a bit around the edges. It works well. The beat is probably responsible for the song not finding it's way onto the album. The leading rift is great; probably the highlight of the track in fact, but everything accompanying it sounds rather bland and amateurish especially the the piano and the half-hearted attempt at an outro.

This isn't on the same level as Too Long but it's still a lot better than a lot of what was put on the album.


Rating: 7.5/10
