This song is listed as "Hip Hop/Rap" in my iTunes library along with the other eight songs off of Symmetry and Ryan Lewis' self-titled 2009 album. While other songs on the Rhode Island emcee and Seattle producer's album such as "Make Me Yours" and "Back And Business," have more hip hop elements (aka rapping), "Feel Right" transcends genre categorization with synth-heavy beats, an eerilly catchy melody, and a rock drum beat topped by a stirring chorus. The result is a song that sounds like Franz Ferdinand meets Muse meets MGMT meets Kanye West and provides us with further evidence of Mr. Lewis' brilliance as a producer. If you like what you hear, I highly suggest downloading the entire album (link above) as well as his critically-acclaimed project, The Vs. EP, which he recorded along with Seattle emcee Macklemore and was one of my favorites of 2009.
Peace, Love, & Hip Hop,
