Yesterday the new album from Doomtree’s P.O.S. hit stores. Never Better seems to follow P.O.S.’s progressive string of solo albums where you know you are going to get something different from the last one, but with some of the same style from before.

Although there are probably a fair ammount of fans that don’t agree with throwing Miami Bass style quick snare drum snippets into an underground rap song the fact is that it sounds good and it’s something new and interesting than what has been coming out of the Twin Cities in the past.
