#5 Gil Scott-Heron – I’m New Here

Gil Scott-Heron has long been one of my favorite artists and poets, but I really did not expect to hear anything special from him, I assumed his time was past.  But with “I’m New Here”, he overwhelmed me.  Musically, the album has a minimalist electronic feel to it, lyrically, its some of the most personal and introspective verses I’ve heard in a long time. And the video for “Me & The Devil” was by far my favorite video from 2010.  Dark and creepy, yet very compelling.
