Fred Ones Phobia Of Doors
- Words: Rob Geary
- Label: Raptivisim
Sonic Sum cohort Fred Ones makes his bid for RJD2-level status with his own producer‘s album, Phobia of Doors, a promising listen that falls a bit short. Fred Ones‘ production is impeccable, handling delicate strings and satisfying thump on "Evolve," jangling electro on "One Last Stab" and a slow, thick Asian dub on "Some Seeds." The guest rhymers are a mixed bag, with Life Long spinning a great anti-commercial tale on "The Puppet M.C." and Yazeed conjuring an Asimov-level sci-fi epic on "2087," but Slug just chases his tail on the tail-chasing yarn "Sex and More."
