Review: Taxi Review of Debut Single 'HYPRHYTHMIC' Taxi - August 15, 2006 'I love having to critique songs like this. It has a unique twist to it. All tho it can somewhat remind one of an artist like R Kelly or Sisqo, the beats are a little more rugged and street then what they were doing. Meech voice is great, and he knows how to keep a good tone. The chorus for the song is strong and vocally Meech is great. Production wise the song is great. Keep the good music coming' The melody had good music in verses, and in choruses. The structure is well written and has good sectional contrast. The lyrics are cohesive; exhibit a good use of imagery; communicates emotion to listener, and the vocal does help to sell the song. Meech 'definitely knows when to bring hook/chorus in.'
