5.0 out of 5 stars A great moment in Hip Hop History 8 Dec 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Before Pharoahe Monch and Prince Po went their separate ways to pursue solo carreers, they made some of the finest, purest hip hop of the early 90's - the golden age of hip hop! This was the first album they put out through Hollywood Records.

While some of the tunes have dated a little on the production side, most of them still hold up, especially when compared the weak, keyboard-demo style production of modern rap.

The sampling here is beautiful - Herbie Hancock, SOUL, Earth Wind & Fire, George Benson, Skull Snaps, Bob James, Weather Report, Richard Pryor - and as emcees both of them are second to none. If you're looking for some true school hip hop that you may have missed, check this out now. You'll be pleased you did!

5.0 out of 5 stars Organized Excellence 6 Jun 2011
Format:Audio CD
Organized Konfusion are the best hip-hop duo you've never heard of. Functioning as both producers and MC's, they take control of this record and relentlessly suck you in. From the opening few songs, you know this album is going to be killer. After a short funky instrumental intro, (Fudge Funk) we move into the catchy, party hip-hop of "Fudge Pudge," the absolute ear-candy of "Walk Into The Sun," the surging, political "Releasing Hypnotical Gases" and the aptly named, hip-hop for a summer's day, "Audience Pleasers." I've yet to find a greater opening salvo in a hip hop album. The album continues strongly with the politically charged "Prisoners Of War" and the tale of inner city violence with "The Rough Side Of Town," a standout for its "Southside! Southside!" chant and the odd Xylophone-type sound in the production. I feel the album strays a bit in the middle, but returns ever strongly with the humorous "Who Stole My Last Piece Of Chicken?" showing the duo's goofier side, and the fantastic "Open Your Eyes," punctuated with an utterly genius Herbie Hancock sample. Rounding off the album is the great yet oddly named "Intro," (considering it's the second last track) and a remix of "Chicken" for those who didn't get enough of it the first time. As a whole, the album is remarkable. It comes across in a lot of places as a sort of greatest hits album, as the songs are just that good. And what's worth remembering is that this is these guys' debut album! For newbies on the rap scene, these guys just ooze confidence. They know what they're doing alright, and aren't afraid to experiment a bit and do their own thing. In terms of production, this album rocks. Utilising both samples and live instrumentation on a few tracks, the production is imaginative, assured and fits absolutely perfectly with the lyrics. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Hip-Hop Album Of All Time. Bar none. 8 Sep 2004
By Nastradamus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
10 out of 5 stars is ripping it off really badly. It's better than that.

No lyric is out of line, no beat is misplaced.

It's perfect.

Monch pretty much put himself into the top 10 with this CD itself. Example? Sure:

"I am one who is one with all things, thus the unorthodox I am

The paradox I am, the equinox extending my hand

into dimensions to unlock new doorways

And so the light has revealed to me that there must be more ways

And so I play with rhythms, for something more than a mere game

enabling me to advance in wisdom

Words will exist like vampires

No need for sunlight, from concentrations camps I escape

with my sanity -- in 2010 every man will be

subject to global warming, formless oval

Millions of locusts swarming

Seek and you shall find the deliverer of a rhyme

the intelligent one, utilizing the mind third vision

Surrounded by a three-sided figure, containing the brain

The triggering mechanism from which I strike

sight beyond sight, sound beyond sound

which comes from below the magma, the granite, the ground

The surface will seperate, dispersing harmful ashes

Your optics will not be able to detect

the deadly hypnotical gases

Damn it's hard to breathe!!! But if I got one breath left;

I'll suck wind from the valley of death, here I come

from the slums of earth to center

I reveal myself as a beast within a, unbreakable shell

Walkin through the doorways of Heaven -- or is this Hell?"

Say someone comes along using the ever popular "anyone can rap" statement. Equiped with "Organized Konfusion" in hand, flash it to them. This will hypnotize them into liking rap now, and retracting them from such ignorant sayings.

Go buy it. Put down the Doritos, turn off the computer, and run over to Best Buy.

What are you waiting for!?????????

5.0 out of 5 stars Pharoahe's Phinest 8 Jun 2002
By Jesse Meyerson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Pharoahe Monch and his partner in rhyme, Prince Poetry come correct on this early 90's debut. This CD has it all. If you like relevant, conscious hip-hop from back in the day, like the Native Tongues, then you will really like this CD. If you like old school party anthems, this album has something for you too.
Such politically juiced songs as "Prisoners of War", "Releasing Hypnotical Gases" , and "Open Your Eyes" are insightful to the national scale of the problems we all face, even over a decade later. And closer to home, "Rough Side of Town" and "Roosevelt Franklin" are tales from the hood, but don't think it's hard core posing and wannabe gangsta-ism, it's more of a social commentary.
There are some pretty funny jauns on this album too, like "Who Stole my Last Piece of Chicken?" and a lot of skits and funny one liners, and there are some head nodders, with great lyrical dexterity, such as "Walk into the Sun", "Organized Konfusion", and the aptly titled "Audience Pleasers".
If you liked Simon Says and maybe even got Internal Affairs, or just heard of Pharoahe Monch, you should get this CD right now, highly recommended. This is the Pharoahe at his best and you can definitely see how he developed as an MC, and his influences from
his early years to today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prince Poetry and Pharoahe Monch = HIP-HOP GODS 24 May 2006
By Alan Pounds - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I find "Organized Konfusion" (1991) to be one of the most rewarding listens to grace the hip-hop lexicon. Prince Po and Pharoahe Monch redefined lyricism with their relentlessly impenetrable styles. Whether it be odd time signatures, pitch fluctuations, or break-neck speed; these guys possessed all the skills to execute a brutal, but conscious gem that will live on forever. "Organized Konfusion" is arguably the first "underground" hip-hop album that was ever released due to it's cult status that has lived on since day one. At first, I wasn't sure if this was East Coast or West Coast rap. The brutal delivery and strong mic presence led me to believe that it was East Coast at first (which it is). On the other hand, they have such refined styles, and the ability to change pitch and tone in a piercing manner, even singing for a second or two at a time. They simply had flair and style that they pushed like West Coast emcees would. But no, this is seriously the best of both worlds. The album is superb from front to back, and well worth several full listens. In recent memory, I can't remember getting more excited while listening to an album than I have "Organized Konfusion". Hands down, in my top 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars They Finally Fixed The Poor Sound Quality! 17 Mar 2009
By Supreme - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've wanted this album for so long, but held off due to the negative reviews complaining about the poor sound quality. I finally caved in and ordered it anyway, and I'm glad I did - it plays perfectly out of BOTH speakers. I even tested it on three different CD players and it plays perfectly with absolutely zero problems. If you've wanted this album but held off for the same reason as I did, the coast is now clear. The manufactors must have started pressing copies that actually play out of both speakers/head phones. I'm not sure if other music distributors are selling copies that play right, but I ordered mine brand new from amazon and like I said, it plays flawlessly. I should also mention that a buddy of mine ordered a copy right when I told him mine doesn't have sound problems, and his doesn't have problems either.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOP 5 all time in hip hop 8 May 2003
By G. Mack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have mannnnnyyyyy classic hiphop albums in my collection, and this one is definately at the summit of my mountain of cd's. This album is also undoubtably the finest of the 3 Organized albums.
Both Pharaohe and Poetry are A+ emcees. And that is the bottom line. AND BY THE WAY. . . ignore the hype, this CD is better than their second "Stress;The extinction agenda". However it is a reallll close call, so pick up both classics. If your into poetic lyrics and funk then this is the one. . . If you like dark beats and angry lyrics then get the second. PEACE
