Vinyl LP pressing. Atmosphere's third official studio release, the critically-acclaimed God Loves Ugly, has been re-packaged for re-issue, but it remains as ugly as ever. Originally released in 2002, it helped to cement the duo's foothold in the independent hip-hop scene, placing them at the forefront of the emerging subgenre of emo-rap. Slug and Ant weave tales of sorrow, frustration, and forgiveness together seamlessly over beds of melancholic melodies that swell with tension and angst amidst bone-cracking snares and taut bass lines. With some of the most beloved classics in Atmosphere's catalog, including "F*** You Lucy," "Godlovesugly," "Lovelife," "Modern Man's Hustle" and "Shrapnel," God Loves Ugly was effectively a lesson on processing pain without becoming a victim to it.
