The Independent Musicians CD Reviews|
Welcome to the EvO:R Independent CD Reviews Section.
I would like to take a few minutes to introduce ourselves to everyone. The EvO:R review section
features reviews from various independent musicians that submit material for our consideration.
I wanted to let you know a little
about our review teams collective thoughts on music. It's important to let the people we
review know what we
think of their music and how we listened to their creations.
We hold nothing back! The team has been instructed to be honest and respectful of all CD's reviewed.

Battle of the Soul

Song Samples from the CD
‘Ex-member of Chuck D of Public Enemy fame project band the Impossebulls, Khalfani (aka Pvt Militant) is back with
a new EP that is sure to earn him respect, even amongst his peers.’ – from artist page at CDBaby.com-
As with most Rap (not all), Khalfani is self righteous and vulgar. It doesn’t really matter what his message
is as he uses all the standard trash talk that appears in so much of this type of music.
I’ll refer to it as ‘music’ even though any kid with a sense of rhythm, a computer and a few machines
can create a record like this.
I’m sorry, but no one that creates this garbage will ever have my respect. I know a few rappers that don’t
use the F word, N word, Bitch and Shit and they will gain my respect much quicker than Khalfani.
I am sure that I will receive some nasty emails and possibly even a few threats for being true to myself
here but as I tell most artists that I review, ‘this is my opinion.’ It shouldn’t necessarily stop you
from doing what you do. But I wish you would.
I kept feeling like there was a good message here somewhere but I failed to find it.
All song samples are from Artist page on CD Baby.

Surely, there is a better way to get your message out without catering to the dregs of society.
