5.0 out of 5 stars just run em...., 28 Sep 2013
After teaming up on killer mikes most excellent 2012 album R.A.P. music, produced and guested on by EL-P, the duo decided to team up again and have a crack at a full length album together.
To anyone who was a fan of ' R.A.P. music' or EL's 'cancer4cure' will find themselves in familiar territory with this record. Mikes trademark southeren drawl, laced with wit, hidden barbs and insight on top of EL's dystopian, hellish, futuristic beats.
El raps a hell of a lot on this record too, taking the lead on many songs and doing a damn fine job of it. Arguably does some of the best vocals he's done on any of his previous records to date, while killer mike, the more accomplished rapper… Read more
Lights Camera Revolution ~ Suicidal Tendencies

Carved Into Stone ~ Prong
4.0 out of 5 stars Best since Cleansing., 15 July 2012
Magnificent return to form. Best metal album in years.
Prong have been guilty of some very patchy more recent releases, 'Scorpio Rising' i just didnt get, 'Power of the damager' had an odd production and could of benefited from an actual bass sound as the low down groove that for me is so integral to the classic Prong sound was missing completely from that record.
The good news is Prong are most definately back, back with that sick low bass throb and glorious bursts of speed.
Not one bit of this album sounds like old geezers going through the motions (metallica/slayer?) it all sounds so vital, sharp.
Other reviewers have said this album should have been the follow up to… Read more
