Ge-ology Plays Ge-ology works almost in spite of itself. At 30 tracks, it's way too long, more of a compilation of Ge-ology's many remixes, instrumentals, and productions for artists such as Unspoken Heard ("Elevator Music") and Consequence ("Fa Sho") than a traditional album. To hip-hop fans, Ge-ology's tracks will sound reminiscent of DJ Spinna's music; to those unfamiliar with him, they'll simply sound monotonous, with one tastefully melodic instrumental indistinguishable from the other. And yet one can rightfully claim that Ge-ology Plays Ge-ology is a pleasurable listening experience. While hardly groundbreaking, the relaxing, jazzlike undulations of Ge-ology's efforts define the term butter beat.
