"A Strange Journey Into the Unimaginable" is Murs' most intimate record to date.


A Strange Journey Into the Unimaginable begins on an intropective note, as Murs confides in the listener, bringing up the missed miscarriage he and his partner suffered. The beautiful aspect of this record is in Murs' decision to lunge himself into his music, almost out of obligation, in response of personal tragedy.

The tracks follow clear lines, high keys mellow out before they peter out completely. It might be Murs' most intimate record to date, in a career spanning 20 years. A Strange Journey Into the Unimaginable also non-coincidentally drops on the rapper's 40th birthday.

The production is handled completely by Michael "Seven" Summers and features vocal appearances by Tech N9ne, Fashawn, XV, Prof, Propaganda, John Givez and Robots & Balloons.

Murs has always assumed persona without ducking out of responsibility, as a "conscious artist" or what have you. This time around, Murs bares his soul unflinchingly, and the result is quite impressive. Give it a listen top to bottom.
