A pretty great album. I think 2 things hold it back from being brilliant and both are only under par by MF's standards. Firstly, what one previous reviewer said about the rhymes not having any character may be true. Sometimes the relentless spitting gets slightly repetitive, if still very impressive. (Incidentally, that same reviewer cited VV2 as the worst example of lack of character and I couldn't disagree more: it's my favourite non-self produced album of his).

Secondly, and by far the biggest crutch. I have been surprised by the support for Jake One as a producer. I hadn't heard of him and looked up his producing credits. Seeing production for G-Unit didn't fill me with anticipation, even though I have never listened to their stuff. In reality, he didn't exceed my expectations. If you listen to the album, it is quite clear that the least inventive/exciting tracks are those by JakeOne. I think by any other standards they would be very good beats, but when contrasted against Doom, Dilla and Madlib, they make the album seem under par. I know the album would be very short without them, but I would prefer it like Take Me to Your Leader than this, with some slightly overlong skits with Doom beats over them than this. I know that would mean missing out on his great flows but I don't think he sounds as smooth or inspired over these beats as over the rest.

Otherwise, the album is fantastic, and I am just slightly disappointed he fell into the trap of trying to put a bit of filler in, albeit pretty dope filler.

Aside from Vaughdville Villain and Madvillainy, this is the best Doom album, hands down.

The often short sharp tracks and even a switch up of beat in a track, suits Doom down to the ground.

His voice is the clearest I've heard in any of his albums so far. It really compliments my set up; Onkyo amplifier, bi wired Cambridge audio S30's and an S50 centre speaker, Cambridge Audio Ultra 100 speaker cable.

Doom's content is as crazy as usual; "He's like Worf, some say stronger though". Only Doom would come out with something like that!

I wouldn't say it's brilliant from start to finish, there was 2 tracks and a couple of skit style tracks that I skip. That leaves 13 tracks for me that are briliant.

Also, tyhis album really compliments Reakwon and Ghostface, who I have not liked in an album since their second Solo albums. Yeah Ghost had a couple of nice tracks in Fishscale, but that album was extremely overrated.

Back to born like this; It deserves nothing less than 5 stars. It is quite telling when Doom's voice is so clear in an album. It means he intends it to be one of his main albums. Born Like this, when compared to Operation Doomsday, there is a big difference in voice clarity, delivery and content.

The beats are just class, it seems as if it's the golden era all over again! Indeed, there are heavy samples, which are used perfectly.

I love the fact that Doom can recognise this and hit us with something raw, but done completely professionally and produced perfectly. (By J Dilla)

For the last 8 years the name MF DOOM has been one of the go to men for me in the modern era of hip hop, ever since Operation Doomsday and the re release of KMDs dropped album this man has released nothing but quality and re-instilled some faith for me in the term hip hop, faith I had almost lost completely

However..I share the same feelings as one of the previous reviewer, I love listening to this album, I love listening to DOOM anytime and the tracks Gazzillion Ear and Absolutly are DOOM at his best for me but he does stray away from the brooding sagas and twist filled witty concepts he mastered in the utterly brilliant Take Me to Your Leader and used as the main stay theme of all his other LPs

That said this is a solid, fun and at the end of the day DOOM! and to be honest most of the time, thats enough for these ears in this messed up totally neutered of quality genre these days.

I'm surprised a lotta people are complaining about this album - it's not bad at all! In fact, he's still up there. I'd say this is one of the best albums of the year already.

DOOM seems to be recycling lots of Dilla still, and still working with Madlib as well as Jake One - all exceptional producers, no bad moves there. What people seem to miss is DOOM's charm...this new one has a little less 'cheek' and a bit more gruff, ballsy spit-in-your-face crudeness (which is no bad thing, still). Some reviews I've read have been a bit surprised by the most tongue-in-cheek tune ('Batty Boyz'), but you have to treat it like that.

There's plenty of genius splashed around and about, my favourite being the ESG sample on 'Yessir!', with smooth flowing from Wu-Tang's Raekwon, and the Raymond Scott-heavy 'Lightworks' (through Jay-Dee's genius, R.I.P). Much of the album is menacing, but there's still some upbeat, catchy hooks every here and there ('More Rhymin'', 'Still Dope', 'That's That'), but the album kinda grinds to a halt near the end...even using a little autotune (nahhhh) on 'Supervillainz', but we'll just ignore that.
