Release Date: 2010 | Tracklist

Review Summary: Anger...madness...The Hole.

Even the names of the three sections this five track EP is split into perfectly describe it. The five beats that weren’t allowed to have songs written for them to be included into K.O.D. as a result of time limitations finally have some vocals recorded over them. These songs should have been on K.O.D., and with a vengeance, they combine forces to surpass their former excluder in quality.

Rather than being cockily observant of material possessions, Tech N9ne is reflective of raw, internal emotions. Typically dealing with feelings such as searing anger and solemn depression, Tecca Nina vocally expresses his negative energy in a variety of ways. His rapping styles range from furious howling (“Stress Relief”) to nonchalant, gloomy lulling (“Last Sad Song”) to showman-ly, uptempo flowing (“00N9NA.”)

The main difference between The Lost Scripts of K.O.D. and its predecessor K.O.D. is its spectacular run time (clocking in at barely under twenty minutes) and the superior quality of the instrumentals. While K.O.D. had some mediocre beats and some mild filler, The Lost Scripts of K.O.D. is technically and instrumentally solid throughout. The subtle, muted electronic bounce of “00N9A” serves as a nice foil to the rainy-day pianos, dark violins, and suspenseful percussion of “Pain Killer” and the thumping drums and angry strings of “Like I Died.”

At one point, Tech N9ne iterates “There’s no meds for me/It’s just lead for me/Any light left in me is too dead to see,” and thus, successfully conveys not only his mood, but the album’s mood as well. Dark, angst-y, and unhappy, The Lost Scripts of K.O.D. is a more than effective follow up to its precursor, and a successful promotion ploy deployed by Strange Music.

I felt more compelled to review this than Wu-Massacre. I'm feeling super unmotivated recently. This is cracking my 2010 Hip-Hop Top 5.

Oh, was that you. Then I guess I lied about never reading any of your other reviews.

It's not bad. You seem to structure some of your sentences in a weird way (IMO). The first two sentences are big examples of that. An easier example is this:

The Lost Scripts of K.O.D. is solid technically and instrumentally throughout.

To me, this just sounds better: The Lost Scripts of K.O.D. is technically and instrumentally solid throughout.

I've never listened to Tech N9ne outside of one song in Madden 2006 that was pretty good. He's got tons of material, but does it matter if I start with this?
