The Less You Know, The Better

The Less You Know, The Better by DJ Shadow
Released: Oct 2011
Label: Verve Forecast
On The Less You Know, The Better, DJ Shadow hints at deep and profound feelings. He opens with "Stay the Course," an uncharacteristically optimistic backpack rap featuring Lateef, Posdnuos and Talib Kweli; dips into the blues on "Sad and Lonely"; and samples the screams of a scorned lover on "Give Me Back the Nights." On "Circular Logic," a voice asks, "Who are you?" Many of these songs aren't strong enough to keep us engaged in Shadow's soul-searching, but a handful, particularly Yukimi Nagano's searing vocal on "Scale It Back," lead to something more attractive than just the abyss.
