a lazy attempt at satisfying fans demand for another coab

Naw Lambs, i disagree. El-p is at another creative peak. I do agree on your points on the albums subject matter

"but to really dig something you are probably gonna have to connect to it in some way more than finding the beats catchy and the lyrics fun"


That sums up a 3.5 for me, an album that is kickass and enjoyable but means nothing to me

lazy was the wrong word to use.

'rushed' might be better. I mean he took like 5 years between his other albums, he just didn't put his creative genius into this one (as much) and seems to me to just have been giving a free treat to fans (which is the opposite of lazy).

seems to me that the treat was catered a lot more to people that weren't already long term fans, most people i know that LOVE his new work aren't people that have been repping cold vein, funcrusher, and fantastic damage for years

Are you talking about C4C or this?

anyway, you are probably right, what I meant was fans of RAP Music, not fans of El-P. I don't know enough about El-P's earlier stuff to know if this was for his diehard fans or not.

I still think A Christmas Fucking Miracle has to be the best hip hop song in the past few years. I've probably listened to it more than every other song on this album put together
