I'd like to make it clear that while I like lots of music, on a basic level I'm a complete metalhead! There are a few amazing exceptions to this and MF Doom is one of them. This album is sweeeeeet! If you want to hear a truely talented MC then just listen to this (or any of his alter-egos for that matter, MF Doom, Viktor Vaughan, Mad Villain, King Geedorah, ALL AMAZING!)It puts any gangster rap or general commercial hip hop rubbish to shame! He creates beats and lyrics that should make anyone want put 'In Da Club' in da bin! If you like hip hop and you haven't heard this your mad because its truely innovative! Plus if you like Aqua Teen or any Adult Swim Cartoons, all the skits and interludes feature characters voices which is cool! If you like J5, Blackalicious, Ugly Duckling and Adult Swim (all of which I love), GET THIS!

There's a lot to like about this album - but a lot to forget too. If you're looking at this page, no doubt you know who the two perpetrators are... MF Doom, arguably the most original and consistently offbeat rapper of recent years, and Danger Mouse, producer responsible for the lawsuit-attracting Jay Z / Beatles mash up known as the 'Grey Album'. The third element to The Mouse And The Mask is the addition of characters from the late-night American cartoon show Adult Swim. The skits, which run throughout the album and appear on most songs in one form or another, are funny at first but quickly become grating. Maybe a listener more familiar with the Adult Swim characters would appreciate them more, but I found myself skipping them after the first hearing.
As for the music itself, Danger provides a palette of bouncy, occasionally corny samples and keyboard swirls that neatly offset Doom's regulated, deadpan rapping style. Where this works - on tracks such as 'El Chupa Nibre', ' Space Hoes', the Ghostface-guested 'The Mask' and 'Sofa King' - it comes off brilliantly. Unfortunately, some of the tracks just sound too poppy; despite a nicely crooned chorus from Cee-Lo Brown, 'Bizzie Box' is a dull and overly twee number, while a couple of other tracks are just plain boring. Dm's beats, in this project among others, tend towards the repetetive, and this happens too often on this album.
Still its a worthwhile album because, even on the less interesting songs, Doom enlivens proceedings with his ridiculous wordplay. Disses towards other MCs that are almost subliminal - "They raps ain't got no gift like a lonely Christmas"; "Digest a group and sell the poop on eBay" - bump up against references to Janeane Garofalo, "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka and "those dudes in red shirts off Star Trek".

Well, it's been a very long time since i enjoyed a hiphop album like this, well in fact it was MF Dooms Mm...Food album. When you take MF Doom's vocals and lyrics and mix it up with Danger Mouse's beats and production, you get pure class hiphop. No BS here easy listening music that just sinks in, very rarley do you come across something like this, and when you do, pick it up. There really isn't much more i can say on this album, just buy it and you will not be dissapointed. Pure class.

Once I got this and Vaudeville Villain, I was hooked to MF Doom and kept on listening to my hip hop and neglecting my punk and reggae. Any fan of Gorillaz 'Demon Days' should get this album, as MF Doom's appearence is one of the highlights of the whole album. The cartoon voices may annoy some people, but they dont annoy me. They add to the playful nature of the album, similar to the way the dark production works so well with the dark lyrics of Vaudeville Villain. To me, MF Doom is all about the rhymes, they are very good on this, with great referrences and delivery. Good introduction to MF Doom or dangermouse.

I was a bit disappointed at this release from MF Doom, who is my favorite emcee still as he is able to rhyme like no-one else can. It seems like as his fame is exploding along with his friends at the label Stones Throw his and their releases are getting too watered down.

The album has more of a commercial feel to it which isn't the problem really, as Dangermouse has produced some great beats on here, but the album just feels too gimmicky. Instead of the hard hip-hop beats, great guest emcess and 80s cartoon skits on Operation Doomsday, you get Gorillaz type beats and gimmicky skits from Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Space Ghost. I just can't brush off the feeling that it seems like one big advertisement for Cartoon Network/Adult Swim with lyrics such as: 'I'm trying to watch Adult Swim...'.

From the first listen you can tell Dangermouse was influenced by Damon Albarn's Gorillaz album, as the many of the tracks such as Benzie Box have Brit-pop influences. The standout tracks include: Sofa King, The mask which which features a short appearance by Ghostface Killah, Vats of Urine, and Space Hos.

If this is your first taste of underground hip-hop, or you liked the Gorillaz album you'll love this. The album also has appeal to cartoon nerds who will love the appearances by Space Ghost, Brak and Zorak and the constant Jetsons references.

If you're an MF Doom fan who has loved him since Operation Doomsday and the Monster Island Czars you might be a bit disappointed. Underground fans may be quick to say he's fell off after this, but i'd wait until his highly anticipated album with Ghostface Killah b4 that is said.
