Kidz in the Hall, 'Land of Make Believe' (Duckdown)

5
Land of Make Believe
Critical Mass
Label: Duck Down

by Mosi Reeves

Only two years after their breakthrough 2008 album The In Crowd (and single "Drivin' Down the Block"), Chicago hip-hop duo Kidz in the Hall seem torn, celebrating guilty pleasures ("Bougie Girls") and wondering, "Do you ever feel alone in a room full of people?" But save a few deft meditations on the stresses of blog-rap fame ("Flickin'," "L_O_V_E"), rapper Naledge and producer Double-O also sound uninspired, squandering their boyish Ivy League enthusiasm on clichéd odes to nightclub decadence.
