The Physics

The Physics' recorded catalog is a portrait of consistency rarely equaled in rap music. The Seattle trio has gone to great lengths to ensure a high level of quality on each release, and their third LP, Tomorrow People, doesn't break tradition. The trademark ease with which MCs Thig "Nat" Natural and Monk Wordsmith grace Just "Justo" D'amato's (and a few other premium-grade beatmakers') polished soul beats makes the work sound easy though, and on tracks like "So Funky", "Take a Win", and "Drink With You", the gang handily ups the ante for chilled-out groove-rap. Some of the town's smoothest collaborators show up on TP, and the line up for the album's release show tonight is no different. With The Bar, Brothers From Another, Jake One. TODD HAMM
