Collaborative album ‘A Pond Apart’ by American hip-hop artist Sareem Poems and French producer Terem is a notable piece of art. This is a thinker’s album.
We got the impression Sareem Poems invested a considerable amount of time creating the lyrics for each song on this set. Even when no writing utensils were present we’d be willing to bet he was obsessively fine-tuning their delivery and sensible use of wordplay based on syllable counts.
Terem is a conductor. We found his score throughout this LP to be just as mathematic. His tracks are stuffed with little sound variances and moments that parallel precisely with Poems’ articulations. Think waltz – 1, 2, 3, but the dancers both leap in the air on 3.
A much as we listened to A Pond Apart from beginning to end, we would often revisit song “Tic Toc” – a fantastic example of creative precision found in their chemistry. The songs speaks of time being our most precious commodity, which we totally agree with. After frequent listens we’re pleased this album was worth ours.|
