I took some time, about two weeks to be exact, before writing anything so that I could fully digest this mixtape. I stumbled upon Spark Master Tape 4 years ago when his first tape, Syrup Splash, dropped. Initially it caught my attention because of the similarity in its cover to Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, which it cleverly paying homage to. Since then, I’ve been hooked. Not only to the music but also to the persona that Spark has perfectly implemented in a time where people are acquiring fame faster than ever before. Spark does the complete opposite, he pitches his vocals down to subterranean levels, leaves no trace of what he may look like in real life, and forces his audience to keep it focused strictly on the music. He’s perfectly anonymous, and able to roam the streets without ever being bothered; he’s the perfect enigma to keep the human mind wanting more. His latest tape, Silhouette Of A Sunkken City continues down the same path. Pitched vocals, dark, yet lively, instrumentals, and lyrics to keep you entranced in it all. Despite the tapes length, it’s an easy listen, in my opinion. There’s enough variety so that it doesn’t become mundane and keeps you interested.

These are all my opinions though, check the tape below and form your own below.
