“&%$# you know about struggle?” Pharoahe Monch’s bold but rhetorical query opens the title track to his fourth collection of lyrical land mines, PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The line dares the listener to keep tumbling down the rabbit hole with the Queens, NY MC as he tackles familiar themes of gun violence, heartbreak and redemption but this time in the first ...

Product Description

Product Description

With his highly-anticipated fourth solo-LP, P.T.S.D. - POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER, Pharoahe Monch re-emerges with a new concept project which finds the ground breaking emcee tackling PTSD; a severe anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to any event that results in psychological trauma. Throughout the duration of the LP, Monch narrates as an independent artist weary from the war against the industry machine and through the struggle of the black male experience in America.

Product Description

Highly crafted 2014 concept album from "one of underground hip hop's pre-eminent lyricists"

5.0 out of 5 stars "Go tell your favorite rapper..." 15 April 2014
By Alex William McNeal III - Published on
Verified Purchase
Probably the most highly anticipated album for the genre this year, how pleasantly ironic that we all endeavor to suffer from ‘PTSD’! Lyrically, Monch sounds like he did back during ‘The Equinox’, and the production perfects the formula used on his work from three-years ago. Easily his most commercially viable yet aesthetically satisfying project (sublimely balanced in content presentation; i.e. contrast “Time2” with “D.R.E.A.M.”), this Pharoahes’ reign is still very strong, with no signs of losing ground.

A very impressive and timely concept piece, the title is a condition borne as both badge and stigma for our day; Monch narrates his broken-down-rebuilt-stumble-and-stagger-off vision with not only consummate confidence, but also honesty of vulnerability. The placement of interludes/skits are perfect segues—he literally turned images of pain and struggle into a work of art, like lead into gold! How many so-called artists in our culture can actually do such a thing, to “use your confusion” so to speak? Not all music is alchemy. By far the only lyricist, of his era, I follow whose catalog has steadily increased in quality since the debut—seriously, the lone flaw with this offering is a danger of plateauing the next one. Running on octane from “Damage” and “Bad M.F.” for around 18-months at least, I definitely held impossibly high expectations. There will no doubt be fans and newbies who are going to wax disappointedly at the lack of sustained beast-mode bravado—but they would also be missing the idea entirely. So be it, one can occasionally get what they have asked for; we are pulled into PM’s head and taken through a refreshingly weird and real/real-ish experience. Even with the excusably loose theme-line, even with the production-remix of “Eht Dnarg Noisulli” (the alternate ending of sorts, via “Stand Your Ground”, on the digital copy is much appreciated), my attention and faith never wavered—and I have much faith in very few things. Perhaps he should get depressed more often, if this is what he is going to give us; I mean, “Rapid Eye Movement” was absolutely ridiculous—and Thought’s verse is the first of any guest to damn-near outshine a duo-collaboration with this cat (remember “The What” with Method Man, or “Renegade” with Eminem, plus unquestionable nods to Monch’s “Oh No” spot and Thought’s on “Super Lyrical”: it was like that). Good music does often take time and context to create, and I feel the wait was worth enduring.

As per the HHDSM: our subjects’ current condition is one of terminally ill status, whose etiological roots are a matter of ‘Internal Affairs’, which insatiably ‘Desire’ an external and socially disruptive ‘W.A.R.’ for healthy expression: his state at present is necessarily understandable. I do not think there is a single, or team of physicians who could prescribe a medicinal regimen or submit some other type of cure for his sickness—and that is a good thing! Now, “go tell your favorite rapper…”: salute Monch.

I am a huge Pharoahe Monch fan but this album exceeded my expectations. His honesty in expressing what he was going through with his depression is admirable and the music is phenomenal. I am glad he is not considered mainstream because maybe his music would change - but I wish more people really listened to him. His lyricism is powerful and definitely is up there with Jay-z, Lupe and the best. If this was a tape, I'd probably wear it out and have to buy it again. Thank goodness for MP3!

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy!!!! 21 April 2014
By Previn Deval Smith - Published on
Verified Purchase
Very important album with the issues surrounding mental health in the U.S. Production is superior. And of course Pharoahe Monch delivers witty rhymes and diverse flows throughout the album. Pharoahe Monch is one of those emcees that seems to stay under the radar for some reason (maybe too much substance). I almost forgot how much of a fan of his music I am.

The album is dope. Introspective and creative as usual. I'm still biased to "Desire" but this album is dope in a different way.

The legend returns. Amazing album. Time2 alone is worth the price of the album. Hard hitting lyrics and production. A well crafted album.
