3 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Henry M. B. Inglis on 12 Mar 2002
Format: Audio CD
I, myself am especially fond of the majority of the artists representing the def jux camp; in particular artists such as el-p, cannibal ox, mr lif, etc. so was madd excited at the release of this collection, especially as atoms family featured aswell (a group complied of cannibal ox, alaska, wind & breeze, etc).
However, that eerie futuristic style that is epitomized by almost every def jux release has been taken to an annoyingly cacophonic level. A number of the hooks are actually sung by some irritatting robotic sounding computer itself. I enjoyed greatly the company flow presents....def jux volume 1 release, which showcased splendidly the def jux roster.
This album however seems as if the artists just threw together some venemous, computer processed track, for the sake of getting their names on the album. A fine example of this is in the track titled 'paper mache' by masai bey, which would make a distinguished sound track to un-bearable nightmare.
However, the album has it's highlights, namely the instrumental track by RJD2. El-p also resurects the album substantially with 'the stepfather factory', which is a relatively ardent track for the notoriously noxious def jux camp.
This album does not live up to the heightly standards set by def juxes pioneers namely can ox, el-p, mr lif, aesop rock, or even def jux presents... volume 1. However, if you rejoice at every def jux release, it's probably worth it for the el-p and RJD2 tracks........peace!

This is [good] 6 Sep 2002
By daniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have listened to this album so many times I lost count. It is utterly essential listening for anyone into this music scene. This has not left my CD case even once, except to listen to it over and over. Have you ever shuddered when listening to a really great song? Do you ever get goosebumps or feel a tingle when you are deeply touched by a peice of music or a good book or film? Do you choke up a little when your favorite tune comes on. This record did that for me. I like every song, but the first track is the very best. I demand that you fork your hard-earned money over ... and get this record. You wont be disappointed!

I want more, gimme more. 4 1/2 stars 16 Mar 2002
By DJH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love the direction that El-p's production is going in. I love all the beats they are so sci-fi/techno sounding and heavily layered. I think this is the best compilation album of all time, but I havent heard the Molemen - Ritual of the Molemen yet, I heard that is a good album. Anyway, Aesop comes with a strong track this time to make up for last albums dissapointing Kill Em All. Rob Sonic's track is cool but not as good as most of Sonic Sums material. Camu surprised the hell out of me, I think he's the 2nd best in MHZ aside from Copywrite. RJD2 track is unreal, I dont usually listen to just beats but I cant resist it. Atoms Fam has deffinately improved 110%. Yak B@llz song, pretty good but not as good as Tru City Killuz. Now for the best tracks, Mr. Lif and Murs have the illest cut on the album, Lif has me droolin for a new release. The other Lif track is nice too. I like the rest of the tracks, but they dont stand out as much. Worth every penny, dont let the price scare you.

Classic 28 Feb 2002
By Eugene Hutz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Though straight compilations don't usually garner much credit in terms of "classic" status, I believe that in time this will be seen as one of the best hip-hop releases ever. Every single track here is amazing--both production-wise and lyrically. It is impossible to overstate just how vital and exciting this music is in the current cultural climate.
Def Jux has taken hip-hop to another level. Do not sleep...
