Action Bronson has been a busy guy the past year from releasing a book, starring in The Irishman, Painting and even created the cover art to his last two projects. he’s been a bit quiet in the music scene but with the Magic Alc has created he’s given a soundscape to go ape on and he just done that. Action hasn’t sounded this energetic for a while and it’s a happy return. This is a 7 track EP. 5 of the tracks are brand new and 2 previously released tracks which are “Descendant to the Stars” (was released on Actions Ancient Aliens Show) and “Just the Way it is” which was part of Alchemist’s Coca-Cola Mix “Diagnosis” from 2013 (sampling a Coca-Cola commercial). The first track Dmtri starts off sounding like a french score but what Alc does is pure genius. Its an art what he can do and Actions “Knock it Out the Box Bronson” is perfect.

Second track “Sven” is a funky sample layered banger where Action just rips it up. Third track “Tear Away Shorts” is a more simple beat but with harder drums and starts the album rolling for a harder edge which balances out the album thus far. Forth track “Accoutrements” slows it down with a minimal track but its just over 2 minutes long and the little snippet of singing is a nice touch. Fifth track “Descendant of the Stars” is my kinda Hip-Hop! Good Drums, funky piano, perfect tempo and a good hook plus great bars. The line of the album that made me laugh is on track five “Half Robocop half Mike Tyson tatted on my neck, this is Action Bronson loud from the flight deck, land on remote islands you can’t change my channel, Doin’ donuts on a Camel , desert storm camo on, i’m on the same drugs that Hammer was on, turn the camera on, i’m like a fucking monster out the Amazon”.

Sixth track “Just the way it is” gets a funk up with samples from an old Coca-Cola advert from 1982 and sounds like a Jackson 5 joint and is full of soul. Ep ends with track 7 “Arnold and Danny” and is a good track to end on. All in all its a great project and even the skits are quite funny.
