Reflection Eternal - Train of Thought [The Samples]



What can I say about this album? It's one of those few records which I loved the first time I heard and yet I can still rock it today, any day of the week, like it's the freshest thing out. The samples on this set are really low-key but masterfully selected. Even if you're already a fan of Hi-Tek, listening to these originals will give you a greater appreciation for his sample-chopping. I hope you enjoy it:
