ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"...a live band whose music oozes an almost Philadelphia soul sound with layered grooves punctuated by rhymed lyrics about a world where hope exists alongside darkness, and women are seen as complete human beings."
-- David Jakubiak for The Chicago Sun Times --

"Lean, jazzy, funky and soulful live band hip hop from Animate Objects -- an expertly crafted set, too -- whether their rolling out keyboard-textured grooves or harder hitting boom bap! Animate Objects spin the live sound very well, and capture it just as strongly on this LP -- keys, bass guitar and drums -- with occasional horns and extra strings. There's a natural groove here that's undeniable -- the live band sound wholly belongs to this material, some cuts are laidback slow rolling, others hit with more of a funky bounce. A trio of MCs drop forthright lyricism -- bringing even more depth to the proceedings. Nice stuff! " dustygroove.com

Don't miss this song! Track #11, "El Dorado", won the 2008 Independent Music Award for Best Hip-Hop Song.

::BIOGRAPHY::
Formed when the forces of good and evil procreated to create a delightfully deviant band, Animate Objects embodies the spirit and soul of the new hip-hop generation.

eMCee CZAR Absolute leads this band of merry men on a trek to El Dorado while stopping by in your towns sampling as much local culture that can be had without inviting litigation.

This isn't your usual hip-hop act. To make the lyrics difficult to hear, a gang of miscreant delinquents bang on their instruments, creating music sure to strip you of your insecurities while you dance, jump, grab and prod all those around you.

Birthed in Champaign, IL so their upbringing could be supervised by a tight-knight and extremely talented group of elders, Animate Objects spent equal parts in time-out and at the front of the class. Winning awards and being featured on international records gave them the desire to head to the bright lights of Chicago—where they continue their fiendish plot today.

However, the powers that be have caught up to our little heroes, as the band has now been profiled in: Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, Billboard Magazine, and many other publications. In attempting to further stay the progress of the AO revolution, the band has been given awards the world over, making it increasingly difficult to avoid scrutiny from the watchful eyes of Congress.

::AWARDS::
"El Dorado" - 2008 Independent Music Award for Best Hip-Hop Song.
2007 Metromix/Chicago Tribune Rock N' Vote Champions.
2007 iGo Audio Emissions CD Winners - Hip Hop/RnB.
2007 Going.com Battle of the Chicago Bands Champions.
2005 WPGU/Buzz Local Music Award for Best Hip Hop Band.

Enjoy the ride and please, bring us food!

Angelica LeMinh/Pound Magazine

real hip-hop over a decidedly animate band
...the bottom line is that folks could contest soul's place in hip hop, but "like a wack dance movie, y'all get served, like a stack of hors d'oeuvres, like you deserve."

Big Ca$h Rich

Amazing, Greatest Album Ever
Animate Objects made an instant classic with this album. From the first track[The Weight] all the way to track 52 [The Battle of Now], Animate Objects takes you to musical paradise. The excellent instrumental work and soulful lyrics combine to produce something meaningful, which is rare these days. This is REAL Hip Hop music daring to cross genres while keeping true to its roots. This CD is a must have for fans of ALL music, not just hip hop. Buy it NOW, you won't regret it.

Recall images of Common!
a conscious sensibility and a sincere, reflective delivery that together strongly recall fellow Chicagoan Common.

Valerie Enriquez/Innocent Words

the perfect summer album, whether it’s between school terms or between graduatio
It is possible to make positive hip hop without being unrealistic. This album is a prime example of what looking at the past (with its soul and jazz hooks) while looking to the future (with its optimistic lyrics and subtle production work). In other words, this is the perfect summer album, whether it’s between school terms or between graduation and "the real world."

complete masterpiece
Not only does the album live up to being real hip hop it, but it mixes other genres adding a touch of jazz and so much more. The album as a whole is a masterpiece with each individual song having a unique touch. I just can't wait to see them live. Recommend the album to all, definitely worth buying.
