Muscles Review by AllMusic
Twenty-five years after the monumental release of Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five's "The Message," the dominant MC in the group and the man considered by some to be the best to ever do it, returns with his first solo release, adopting the "Grandmaster" moniker and dropping one "L." Relying heavily on production from the Black Solaris team, MUSCLES's sound presents a dichotomy largely unheard in hip-hop. Though not an old-school album, MUSCLES combines contemporary production trends with recognizable samples and sonic references to the Furious Five's heyday. As a vocalist, Mel is as masterly as ever, flipping a variety of modern styles, while the opening cut, "Blow," works as an effective update to Mel's classic anti-coke anthem "White Lines."
