5.0 out of 5 stars Got more lyrics than the church got "Ooh Lord"'s, 7 April 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: Madvillainy (Audio CD)
Very good hip-hop album by the legendary Metal Face and jazz sampling maestro Madlib, two music makers who in their respective roles as MC and producer fly most in the face of popular gangsta/commercial rap. Some say this is Doom's best album, and while i personally prefer Vaudeville Villain, his bizarre and impossibly complex lyrics are really well complemented by some of the best beats Madlib has done yet. Certainly those who enjoyed Lord Quas's timeless "Unseen" album will feel right at home here with the eerie film dialogue clips (rock on Sun-Ra!), haunting jazz loops and overall nicely blunted atmosphere; whilst Quasimoto's first effort was a very laid back album, Doom's influence seems to have given Madlib's production a bit more of a mischievous energetic feel (whilst still being a killer smoke-up album). One thing tho, this album is a definite grower, and stayed ignored for a good couple of weeks by me after the first listen. But give it time and get a feel for what the duo are trying to do, and you will rarely find another hip hop album as fresh or inventive as Madvillainy.
