Jose Gutierrez This was a great album! Originally i tried this group out because i loved cise starr's features in Lady brown, feather and i believe waiting for the clouds. And after listening to all these songs i bought the album. Loved most of the songs. All are very unique and have good story telling which is needed with most of the current rap. Favorite track: The Raven.

As turntable styluses are just beginning to cool down from last year’s highly-antcipated, highly-lauded “Pretty Dark Things,” CYNE is back with a new collection of tracks that provides both a window into their creative evolution and a summer’s worth of classic jams (not to mention what many are calling the best CYNE record since “Time Being”). Introducing: Water For Mars.

“The songs on this record were created over the span of about 4 or 5 years (roughly 2004 - 2009), though every track was revisited, mixed, and mastered in 2009. The record displays the full spectrum of the “CYNE sound,” including the growth of the band, our collective tastes, and the process of our songwriting. It starts on a positive note about moving forward, building community, and taking on personal responsibility (these are themes that resonate throughout the record). At times, the record grows into something very ethereal and cosmic, alongside a contrast of something that hits harder, musically and lyrically. With each subsequent ‘movement’ we see a blend of introspective thought, social commentary, and a sound weighted in a more classic, uplifting tradition. This album constantly sways back and forth between the lines of classic hip hop, textural music, and a progressive selection of words and sound -- and, to me, this defines CYNE.” - Speck of CYNE

Joining CYNE on “Water For Mars” are track collaborators Daedelus and Ape School, as well as remixers ROM (featuring Roberto Lange/Helado Negro), Mexicans With Guns, and the fan remix contest winner Jay Appleseed.

CYNE are more than one emcee, more than two producers, more than their decade-spanning discography, and more than just hip- hop. Cise Star is a conscience for your headphones. Speck and Enoch dig deep so you don’t have to. CYNE rise above their sphere, merging the personal and the political with genre-busting production and silver-tongued rhymes that capture cross-millennia truths. ... more
