Knowing, and appreciating, Flynn Adam's earlier work with LA Symphony, I know that he is a capable MC who delivers thoughtful, well written and delivered lyrics. But if hip house really ever had a weakness, it was that the lyrics almost always took a back seat to the beats and the hooks. Lyrical repetition is to be expected on hip house tracks, and the vocal modulation and effects serves to switch up the sound, even when lyrics are being banged into your head. Unfortunately, 'Bang the Drums' does not give listeners who are unfamiliar with Flynn Adam any sort of insight into his true skill as a lyricist and MC.
But, let's face it, hip house was never meant to be a vehicle for tightly crafted, complex lyricism. It was a vehicle to get people on dance floors, and make them move. With the tight drums and throwback synthesizer sounds present on 'Bang the Drums,' Flynn Adam has done just that
