Sir Sly was one of my favorite bands in high school and they still have such a special place in my heart. The growth that I’ve seen from the group just reminds me of the time that has passed, and that’s something that artists can’t fake. “You Haunt Me” was their first full album and I remember waiting up at night for its release on iTunes. Here are my top picks from this nostalgically incredible album.
“Nowhere / Bloodlines, Pt. I”
The album is rather electronically aggressive, but this track combats that with a very laid back production and very thoughtful and emotional lyric choices. The two songs blend together very well, like they were meant to be listened together and even created together.
“Too Far Gone”
Another track that takes a step back from being in your face, “Too Far Gone” took some time to warm up to. But, with age it has become my favorite track from the album. The lyrics tend to mean more to me than any other song on the album.
The second song on the album, it is an incredible example of what Sir Sly’s premier style was: an electronic element with very thoughtful lyrics choices.
“You Haunt Me”
A tad more upbeat, “You Haunt Me” is the track that shares the name of the album. Many of the main elements of the album are found in this track: electronic beats, great lyrics, and themes from other lyric choices found in the rest of the album.
“Helpless / Bloodlines, Pt. II”
Much deeper production-wise and lyric-wise, this track was my first love. I put it on shuffle the first time that I listened to it and immediately fell in love with it.
