4th lp and anticon debut from former warp records artist beans (of anti-pop consortium).
features four tet, clark, in flagranti, tobacco, members of interpol, tv on the radio, tortoise, and more. 'end it all' is the first beans album to feature all guest production, and it finds the emcee pushing his distinct staccato rhyme style to new heights across a varied but fluid buildup of beats. the biggest challenge, and perhaps the best results, comes from 'blue movie,' a son lux original that trades in lush orchestral bursts and fuzzy drum pileups. the maximal style is a good look for beans, who rides the unmistakable wobbly bass and live clatter of sam fog's 'electric bitch' with effortless aplomb. 'end it all' burns through 13 tracks in 33 minutes, with beans barely stopping to breathe. there is one exception though, the appropriately titled 'mellow you out.' here, beans slows his roll as his own words move in and out of the eerie vocals of tv on the radio's tunde adebimpe. the late-album track is an obvious highlight, but more importantly, proof that beans is as versatile as he is a true original - making him more dangerous than ever.
