Frankenstein "The Rain Is Gone" (1996)

I won't go on about Toronto again, but this twelve is right up there with Frankenstein's best. A lot of heads have caught up with Frankenstein by now, but for those of you that missed it, or haven't been able to dig up/download a copy, or haven't heard it, here's "The Rain Is Gone" in all its glory:



This track captures the morose nature of betrayal...you get over it, but that taste in your mouth never goes away:

The rain is gone, the pain is gone
But no matter how you flip it what you did was still wrong


Frankenstein's production shines once again...the sharp snare, humming vocal sample, falling piano loop, and yes - cricket chirping. Among Frankenstein's instrumentals, this track is probably the tightest, it so perfectly captures a dark, reflective mood. As it stands, it's the ideal background for his thoughtful dissection of past relationships, and where they went wrong. Includes the instrumental, as well as the b-side "All Hands..." and instrumental.

Damn, miss the blog for a few days and I got all this stuff to catch up on. Man, Frank is the dopest and most underrated producer ever. He's one of my personal favorite artits ever. Great, great stuff.
