Review Summary: Princess Toadstool's copulation soundtrack

3 of 3 thought this review was well written

We are here on the sunny side of J Dilla, the abstract, disjointed hip-hop scene tearing *** up from Los Angeles to Detroit, with Level 99 Funky Paladin Flying Lotus and his musical minions here to bring salvation and justice to an underground army of smooth criminals in the ranks of Brainfeeder. Sipping from a mixed glass of IDM and hip-hop, this chill legion of artists makes home at any smoke-filled bar or metropolitan nighttime scene and brings the vibes like a chilling wind. Mood Masters like TOKiMONSTA and Groove Gladiators ala Thundercat take a backseat in your mind and re-paints the walls and changes the carpets like a mega-bitch mother-in-law, changing your mood and shaking your vibes before you even know what hit you. The collective Brainfeeder ensemble is a family of sick beats, siren songstresses and deep soul fathoms, all united to blow the sun out of the ***ing sky and jam like a raving legion of grim misfits livin’ under the stairs.

Eight-bit fanatic and hip-hop aficionado Samiyam loves this ***, man. He’s dwelling in a cell of sunburned, neon melodrama that sounds like someone put a cassette in the ***ing microwave. Guild Master FlyLo took a shine to this young stud and they made an LP together. Bootleg Beats, the official collaboration between these two Willy Wonkies, brings the beats like a Mexican family fighting off their daughter’s baby daddy. Slick, slim and retro as hell, this Double Team Attack represents Super Mario sitting on the streets drinkin’ Jack ‘til he passes out on the bench. Torn up and re-patched like a quilt made up of NES all-stars, you won’t get a revolutionary atomic bomb of a compound, nor anything that can reach the glamor ofLos Angeles or Cosmogramma, but you will get exactly what you asked for; Brainfeeder feeding you what your brain ordered.

Eh, the review's a bit "out there" but it suits the music, and there's some funny moments to be had

Also, pretty sure Potsy added this to the database which would explain the lack of a tracklist (and he wants to be a mod....)
