Oh my word!! What on Earth is that first reviewer talking about? I doubt the front cover was meant as a racial slur (lighten up...), more of a rebellion against limitations of the Hip Hop image created by marketing. They are breaking the old clichés by presenting themselves as being everything Hip Hop is NOT supposed to be, refined, upper class et cetera... But anyway, on with the review, if an album brings together such an eclectic range of artists and bands such as Franz Ferdinand, RZA, Del, Barrington Levy, The Mars Volta, Qbert and Rahzel (To name but a few...) then you know it's going to be interesting. In the hands of anyone else, such an ambitious project would turn to mush, but luckily Prince Paul and Dan the Automator handle the album expertly, and not only mange to pull it off, but in my opinion, produced THE album of 2004. The album effortlessly combines Hip Hop, Rock, Reggae, Classical and soul flavours which hold your attention throughout. I have played this album to a lot of people and everyone has loved it, whether they are hardcore hip hop heads or not. If you are looking for a Hip Hop album that's a break from the usual 'pimp sipping gin & juice' gangster drivel that has become so tiresome then I can think of no better album that slaps you in the face with it's sheer originality and quality. This album is fresshhh!!
