Review: Album Review: Rick Ross – Teflon Don

Reviewing albums is fun and important.  Okay, mostly fun.  I like to read what people think about albums and I like to write what I think about albums.  But what about the reviewers themselves?  Who are reviewing the reviewers?  Sure, we can comment on how well an artist is doing, but how are we doing?

In Ian Cohen’s review of Teflon Don by Rick Ross there is a lot going on.  We read about the artist, his history, his friends and comrades.  We read about past releases, industry pressures and see a lot of comparisons to other artists.  And I think somewhere in there it talks about the album.  I mean, I see it mentioned a lot, but it seems that perhaps Teflon Don is being used as a basis for viewing the world around, as opposed to the opposite.

I think that this piece was just incorrectly filed.  As “Teflon Don – An Essay” this is a nice bit of analytic writing.  As an album review, well, I still can’t tell whether or not I should have any interest in the album.  I think a more efficient use of time would be to listen to the album and decide for myself as I think reading this review would take longer.
