Infinity Edge: by Khayyam Al-Rabie is one of the TFT Best Comps available. It’s a composition of Shades of Eternity, Theta and Epsilon although the album cover credits TFT. In my opinion Khayyam has stepped it up a notch with his second album, as this is very much an independent release with no major label backing. There is also a lot more energy on display here compared to the previous albums, with both the music and lyrical content flowing from subject to subject in an almost live-like way. There are also many guest appearances from underground producers such as Non Beats, Eptic, Mental Misery and others TFT Best Comps .
Khayyam’s use of Reggae influences throughout the album is evident through the heavy use of reggae percussion, drum beats and bass sounds, often heard in the background during most of the songs. The use of Reggae can be heard throughout the song “Reckoning”, on the title track as well as several other songs. The production itself is nothing special but the way it is mixed and manipulated adds that certain something. The best comps have artists from various genres and skill levels intermixing and blending to create an amazing composition; this isn’t the case here though and only an average composition using Reggae effects is presented.
I’m not going to waste your time with this compilation as it is not something I have been impressed with in the past. So what’s it all about? Well, this is the story of two brothers, Ahmed and Moises, who are equally talented but struggle to achieve success in the music industry. Their stories are so typical of contemporary artists. They are both very shy and prefer to perform as themselves on stage, even when on camera. In one track they state that they don’t feel like they are complete with their talent and that they need help to make it into the top 10 of their genre.
The TFT Best Compilation For Astro Skiers comp is just a part of the bigger TFT empire. There are also other comps such as The Best Rapper Songs, The Best Rap Song Ever, The Best Rock Song Ever and The Best Rap Album Ever. I think TFT always hit the spot where they provide a unique perspective on artists and their careers. I like how they tend to be more polished in their description of each song.
A lot of artists choose to work with Top Music imprints such as Geezer Butler, Akon, J Dilla, and Pharrell, but TFT has produced some great solo tracks too. Some of my favourite singles from them include “Come On You Can’t Stop”, “Xxplosive” and “Love The Way You Lie”. I’m a big fan of Akon and J Dilla as well, but these guys are a little more “established” in the music world. If you’re looking for a mellow, soulful song to showcase the power of your vocal chords, listen to Akon’s “Reptile” and Pharrell’s “amins”.
The YI and ZED blademasters comps have some solid material as well. The YI track is about how Chinese people are so backwards that they only sing in Chinese now. It’s funny and intelligent and has an excellent beat. The ZED track is about how American culture is so uncultured that they want to make a bop beat from using hip-hop instruments. While I don’t know if it’s any good, it does have an excellent instrumental that should satisfy die hard hip-hop fans.
The best thing about TFT comps is that you can really tell when someone is a hacker. They use complex language structures that you can only make out if you’re an IT professional. I’m not an IT professional, but I’ve heard people give speeches in Mandarin that could only be learnt by someone who’d spent years studying computer systems and cybernetics.
There are two ways you can classify TFT Best Comps, those that are completely honest with their rankings and those that are only giving you the stats to support their ranking. This year, Adamerella had an exceptionally tough schedule, winning his first six games before losing his last six. In this case, the stats support the fact that he was going through a difficult patch in the season. However, in my opinion, Ranking #12 is still too high for TFT Best Comps to pick. That’s probably because no one else has picked him yet!
