i'll start by first saying that i definitely think Panacea has a better emcee in K-Murdoch than the Blue Scholars have in whoever their front man is. that said, musically these albums are pretty equal, although they are very different styles. however, i find the beats only slightly more enjoyable on Bayani and i think one thing that really held A Mind on a Ship Through Time back was the hooks. the hooks on that album ranged from mediocre to horrendous, while, though Bayani didn't exactly have the most memorable hooks, they were a considerable step up.
i'll have to give Bayani the very slight edge.
Panacea. Though I don't see why Erik is hating Bayani so much.
i was hating on it in the other thread because it got voted the #1 album of 2007 over two albums that i felt were far superior (Perseverance and Below The Heavens) even though both of these albums are really only mediocre imo.
