Headphone Masterpiece album for sale Product Description



The title of this lengthy, two-disc affair may be a bit misleading; it might suggest some sort of Prince-like construction full of finely wrought sonic details and painstaking production. In fact, the opposite is true--it's a raw, minimalistic, lo-fi effort that has the immediacy of home demo recordings. Fortunately, it's that very quality that has endeared Cody ChesnuTT (the weird capitalization is his idea, folks) to a panoply of critics, earning him a spot on countless best-of-2002 lists. Still, THE HEADPHONE MASTERPIECE didn't hit the album charts until 2003, possibly helped by exposure through touring with the Roots. While this is a genre-spanning affair that incorporates pop, rock, soul, funk, and hip-hop in roughly equal measures, it's a million miles from the neo-soul of a Maxwell or D'Angelo. In terms of sonic context, ChesnuTT is more aligned with mercurial four-track scamps like Guided by Voices, churning out songs and snippets without any grand scheme in mind. Attitude-wise though, he seems to be coming from the hip-hop mindset, as the dominant lyrical preoccupations are world-beating braggadocio and the unabashed celebration of social and personal improprieties of every stripe. Whether you call Cody ChesnuTT pop, soul, or hip-hop, one thing is apparent from listening to the HEADPHONE MASTERPIECE; the man's got rock-star confidence to spare. Recorded at The Sonic Promiseland, Valley Village, California. Personnel includes: Cody ChestnuTT, Craig Waters, Sharif Dumani, Aaron Ebenspurger, Chris Winston, Troy Taroy, Alonzo "Freestyle" Catia. This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files. Rolling Stone (12/26/02, p. 104) - Ranked #5 in Rolling Stone's list of 2002's "10 Best Debuts"
Rolling Stone (10/3/02, p. 104) - 4 stars out of 5 - "... One of the most emotionally raw albums of the year..." Spin (1/03, p. 73) - Ranked #37 on Spin's list of 2002's "Albums of the Year" - "... Think Guided By Voices on a Remy Martin bender with Shuggie Otis and you're still not there..." Uncut (01/04, pp. 84-7) - Ranked #38 in Uncut's "Albums Of The Year 2003"
Uncut (6/03, p. 91) - 5 stars out of 5 - "... Although decidedly lo-fi, this epic, adventurous and mischievous album bears comparison with Prince and Todd Rundgren.... This is an album of the year..." Mojo (Publisher) (9/03, p. 106) - 3 stars out of 5 - "... At once engaging and aloof, the record entices you closer yet keeps its distance, its often hamfisted production and errant vocals adding to its ramshackle, rusticated charms... "

Reminds me of a mellow Hendrix
Headphone Masterpiece buy CD music I first saw Cody on MTV's "You Hear It First" segment and I bought his album the same day. Although he doesn't play hard rock (mostly acoustic), his look and his unorthodox and unrhymed lyrics are what remind me of Jimi.

Think You've Heard It All? Guess Again...
Headphone Masterpiece songs This nearly unfiltered, unprocessed glimpse of the triumphs and heartbreaks of an artist seeking his muse, quietly slipped in under the radar before Outkast blew up with "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below," and may be one of the best albums you never heard.

Funny as hell
Headphone Masterpiece album for sale Cody ChesnuTT may attempt to be coming off as serious in his songs, but he's straight funny. I enjoy the music its definitely different than I expected, but its a nice change of pace from the same old song topics and lyrics.
