REVIEW: Anu~Sun’s “The Adventures Of Mr. Las Vegas”

Photobucket The first time I heard of Anu~Sun, I felt it had potential but not just yet. Sound quality was an issue for me, perhaps something that most people overlooked but for me it’s essential in making a good listening experience a great one. The Adventures Of Mr. Las Vegas (self-released) is an album that shows someone who knows and understands his talent, and this is a collection of music worth celebrating.

The adventures Anu~Sun creates as Mr. Las Vegas shows him as a showman ready to strut his stuff, and he’ll do it in a hip-hop context that’s traditional, or as is the case with “rOCk-staARz”, doing things with a pop touch, Gnarls Barkley style. Other tracks will sound as classy as Maxwell if he did more hip-hop. Summary: this is grown hip-hop that doesn’t sound too old, nor is it adolescent. One might mistake some of these tracks for the Brand New Heavies, and one could easily see someone like Amel Larrieux join him in some of these tracks. Some of the tracks have a demo feel in terms of being unadulerated and un-edited, but still sounding professional. Anu~Sun has a nice attitude in these tracks that make listening to this album a treat, it’s confident but not overly so. Ending the album with the 80’s flavored “Nytes Of Pleasure” is a nice touch, and it’s definitely for the grown. Thumbs up.
