Overcast! marked the start of a storied career that still shows no signs of slowing. While Slug and original co-member Spawn's rhyme patterns and wordplay may have hinted at some of their influences, their creative songwriting and inventive concepts, paired with Ant's brooding and melodic production, made the album stand apart from its predecessors.
Overcast! covers a range of topics and moods, from the dramatic storytelling on 'WND', to the sobering reflections on 'Caved In', to the meticulous imagery and cultural dissection on 'Clay', all joined by a wealth of clever punchlines and metaphors coming together to form a well-balanced and diverse collection of lyricism. Of course, there's also 'Scapegoat', with its beautifully ominous musical backdrop and Slug's perfectly-scripted satirical rant, which took the underground by storm and played a significant role in opening ears to what the Midwest had to say.
Although widely considered an underground classic, the full-length Overcast! album was never pressed on vinyl until a limited edition pressing, celebrating the album's 20th anniversary in 2017. Now re-packaged and produced for wider distribution, fans everywhere can add this re-mastered masterpiece to their collection. Celebrate Atmosphere's legacy of creative expression with the album that started it all!
