Difficulty of Music: Apex Vibe applies very catchy verses along with smooth transitioning into their chorus and solos. The difficulty in the verses is fairly simple while still raising the bar a bit with the transitions and solos.
Comparisons to Other Artists: Apex Vibe would be most compared to Sublime and 311, with a touch of The Roots within their beats.
Lyrical Significance: The lyrics used in this album are very up beat and positive, making it nearly impossible not to sing along.
Overall Rating (out of 10): I would give Rhythm Music an 8 out of 10.
Analysis: This album is very well constructed but lacking in the track list given the fact that there are only four songs on the entire album. From their perspective it is a decent idea to focus on making four very well written tracks rather than having a 10 or 15 track album and only have a few actually good songs. However plans for a full album are in the works and production is set to start soon. More info about the new full album will be updated as we receive it.
