Rain in England
Critical Mass
Release Date: September 21, 2010
Label: Weird Forest

by Charles Aaron

After hitting pop gold with 2006 novelty blip "Vans" as a member of the Pack, enigmatic Bay Area social networker Lil B has, by his own account, released more than 1,500 songs and 180 videos. And his first physical CD -- Rain in England, a therapy-session testimony that sounds like Soulja Boy having a Damascus moment in the champagne room over a beatless synth tide -- is his least accessible. Of course, recent mixtape Blue Flame features droning, cracked emanations like "I'm Paris Hilton," so such distinctions are moot. If you think Kanye's self-reflexive swirl is stupefying, peep this.
