If you’re not paying attention, this album can easily underwhelm. The overall sound is sparse, melodic and unobtrusive. Nothing about it grabs your attention or forces you to listen. But if you’re checking for it, there it is: Grand Agent’s way with words. He’s slick, smooth and sly. In today’s world of subpar MCs and superproducers, it’s rare and refreshing to hear an album on which the rhymes outshine the beats. “You checking for the raps or the rapper?” he ponders on “What I Want.” In Grand Agent’s case”m checking for both.
