Wordsworth Surgery- Large Scale

December 17th, 2005

Beans, Rola, Conrad Watts and Clarity make up Wordsworth Surgery and ‘Large Scale’ is their latest EP release. Comprised of the title track’s remix, ‘Ready?’, ‘Magical Science’ and a few instrumentals, it’s a solid effort with some decent beats and tight vocals. The drums on ‘Ready?’ sound really nice and the rapping is very listenable. ‘Magical Science’ has the best loop of the entire wax, with its mixture of atmospheric but chilled vibes. The rapping over it tends to be typical battle lines but it’s all pulled off well and makes for a dope listen. Overall, this is a friendly release that most people will enjoy and very few people won’t like. The beat’s are its biggest asset, making the instrumentals a welcomed inclusion, but that’s not to take away from the well penned lyrics and quality vocals. It’ll be interesting to see what these guys come up with on an LP length project.
