Review Summary: Its true! It’s a tiny little planet! I leave it sometimes and travel all over the universe! I go to other galaxies and visit strange alien planets! I zoom right through things like meteor showers and skim over black holes! IT’S EXCITING!

You may know Wu-Tang affiliate Killah Priest from the song “B.I.B.L.E.” on GZA’s Liquid Swords and especially Beneath the Surface where he was featured on three tracks. He is similar to GZA in that he is a very complex lyricist who makes his rhymes the forte of his music while leaving the production as a complimentary factor. His lyrics are actually even more complex than GZA’s normally are, and it relies on the listener to have a huge knowledge of ancient history, astronomy and biblical writings to have a clue what he is talking about. But if you can focus in on the lyrics and hear them all, every line shows that it was created with great craft and a poetic message in mind. He does not just rhyme for the sake of riddlin’, yet he is a lot less political than GZA is, which makes his music more upbeat and immediately enjoyable. All in all, Killah Priest is an insanely talented emcee that is probably more talented than most of the members of the Wu-Tang Clan.

The first disc alone features eight different producers, and it is incredible how so many different people could come together to make such a consistent atmosphere throughout the album, showing Killah Priest clearly had huge input in every different sound on the album. The lyrics are enough to make you forget where you are and go on crazy juxtapositions of imagery from all around the universe, and the beats compliment this atmosphere perfectly. The beats are outer-spacey and trippy, and it becomes very obvious this is a lyricist that has spent a lifetime refining his style to make this work. My favorite song "New Reality" uses a sample of a bird singing to create a beat to make one of the most serene sounds I have ever heard! But what is even more amazing are the selection of skits on this album, I am not usually one to give any relevance to skits in rating an album, but this is one of the best use of skits of any rap album I have ever heard. In the end you come away with an album with brilliant poetry, lyricism, rhyming, and flow; and what brings it all together perfectly is the high-tech spacey production. This is a must listen for all true WU-Tang followers, but is also a must listen for anyone doubting musical value of rap.I only gave this a 4 for now because I haven't heard the 2nd disc enough to properly judge it (this review is only for the first disc). This is brilliant Hip Hop.

Best Tracks:
Shadow Landz
New Reality
Ein Sof
Devotion to the Saints (feat. Ghostface Killah and Inspectah Deck)
Visionz
Super God
The Seer, The Poet

This Album is Amazin but his lyrics are questionable, the reason why is, what source or where does his lyrics come from? For some apparent reason, Im believing that he is channeling other spirits out there in the universe and they're giving him this revelation to put it into music. If he is, that is very dangerous to the masses and people can become demonized. I listen to this album and I feel like im in the Twilight Zone with my mind space out. He may meditate and go into deep thought of concentration but if its not on the Word of God but opening himself up to other spirits out there in the universe he can become a vehicle for the devil unknowingly. I pray this is not the case but, its got my spirit telling me these things. Look at the title of it self, Psychic World:

Psychics have been around as long as people. They are people who can tell the future about someone or something. They are sometimes very accurate and sometimes not.

There are some that claim to communicate with the dead. They hold seances and do demonic ceremonies to condor up the dead and spirits.

There is a problem with all this, and that is it is all against God. God call's these people Soothsayers, Seers, Fortune Tellers. They are all against God. They do what they do under a demonic power which is not from God.

The spirits that these psychics are communicating with are not the actual deceased people that they claim they are. What they really are, are demonic spirits. The bible calls them familiar spirits.

Leviticus 19:31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I [am] the LORD your God.

Leviticus 20:6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

Deutoronomy 18:11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

Isaiah 8:19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?

As you can see by the word of God, psychics are not good. God would have us seek Him for our answers. So remember that when you think of calling a psychic. God is waiting for you to call on Him.

Find a home church and let God's Prophet's tell you the truth and get blessed by the spirit of the Lord..
