Private - Hell Ain't A Bad Place To Be


Massive.  That's the first word that comes to mind when describing this song.  The beats are massive, the rap is massive, the vocals are massive.  This song just took me off guard and is just so great.  This should be on the top of all the charts in all markets.  I mean come on.  The chorus is so freaking catchy.  The hook is slamming.  All the parts have come together to make this masterpiece of a song.  I've seriously spent the past 20 minutes replaying it over and over because there are so many elements that make this brilliant.  The modulation on Herbie Critchlow's voice during the rap to the perfectly built riffs.

I just became of fan of Private aka Thomas Troelsen with the release of his previous single, "Everywhere".  This iteration of the group is a solo project in which Thomas is stretching his legs and combining elements of multiple genres in new and exciting ways.  It's one of the most creative songs I've heard stylisticly and has the potential for massive cross continent success.  If this and "Everywhere" are indications as what he can do then I can't wait until he releases an album.
