wooo feature.

i dig this way more than i thought i would. like, i think i made fun of TMV for a good 3 years until
now.

also fuck. The Malkin Jewel is a dirty fucking jam. amazing chunk of songs here, and then a bunch
are alright too. glad omar has chilled the fuck out too. always thought the whole assault on music
thing these guys had going on was too much shock factor and not enough substance.

In particular, the record starts up with "Whip Hand," a perplexing track that not only acts
as an incredibly weak opener, but a truly weak song overall.


dude, the fuzzy deep noise shit in the background fucking LAUNCHES this album. am i alone on this
one?

EDIT: oh and then that fucking 'landmine' shtick ruins it. oh god. nevermind

I didn't like The Whip Hand chorus until I realized the synth is supposed to imitate an E.C.T. treatment ~MIND BLOWN~
