This album manages to sound like a mix between Madvillainy and Liquid Swords. It also has some sweet guests
on here as well, Like Raekwon the Chef and Twalb Kwalfi. Nice sound off bruh, OR IS IT???? Nah, idk.
I think that it deserves about a 4 at least because the themes were much more serious and he seemed to be able to stay on topic much more frequently than before for better or worse.
I will say that someone pointed out to me that he doesn't rap like he listens to the instrumental, which this album proved in some places. He doesn't seem to care as much as he did before...
DOOM does it yet again. My favorite supervillain puts together a great album full of good songs, but on this album, the production is seemingly missing. Other than the ocassional flash of excellence, alot of these beats are pretty meh. Great lyrics, pretty good rapping, beats as a whole are okay. Oh well, there's always Madvillainy. 3.3/5
Not a very well put-together or organized album, but hey, what am I reviewing here, a Black Eyed Peas album? this is a f***ing DOOM album, and I got what I came for. He is the undisputed villain of rap.
DOOM's still the MC he always was, and sounds even more energized than he ever was here. The problem is that his own instrumentals are kinda bland and boring. Jake One and J Dilla occasionally brings the head, but it seems like DOOM made all of his beats back in 2000, and he's just now run out of that stock and made beats for the first time in nine years. There are sparks of brillance, but its mostly boring and disappointing.
