A promising debut for new boys, ill-Day and Meccanism. This is a collection of strong hip-hop tunes with enough weight behind them to carry onto the clubs. Joined by more than a few guest emcees and scratch DJs, Waste Management seems a bit outnumbered at points. And with only nine tracks, this is more of a taster than a full-blown release. But there are some real gems on here. Standing out is "Mixed Emotions" with its perfect blend of rap and body-shakin' grooves. Also "He Is" with a cheeky vocal sample riding behind big proclamations of how great God is. Impressively the album ends with three Reggaeton style tracks; Reggaeton being a happy blend of dancehall reggae and Latin sounds. The lyrics are delivered in Spanish, half-sung, half-rapped. A nice first outing, but left me hanging and wanting more. Worth investing in, as I'm sure greatness is just around the corner.
