Album Review: 'Blowout Comb'

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Digable Planets; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

The cool thing about the second album from this Grammy-winning rap trio is how in-your-face it isn't. In fact, the overall tone is so laid-back you might nod out to the ambient-jazz grooves and stoned-soul stylings and miss the pro-black, Brooklyn-centric lyrics altogether. But cock an ear to the mellowed-out ''Black Ego'' and see if you care. B+
