First, if you like listening to genuine Soul/Motown/R'n'B etc artists like Stevie Wonder/Marvin Gaye/D'Angelo etc etc, be aware that Cody is WAAAYYY below their league. Not just a little bit but so far that I doubt he would make it through a "Stars in their eyes" audition.

Content: very boring, cody spends most of the album rapping about how women are b****es and how big his genitals are.
Musical ability: When he does come up with a worthwhile song, he cannot hold a note for more than 2 seconds - he sounds terrible and CANNOT sing
Quality: sounds like a one off, unpolished album with the quality of an old tape recording. Sounds like it was recorded in his garage
Overall: Absolute rubbish - only gave it a one star because there's no option for a zero star score - NOT WORTH BUYING

This a brilliant collection of music. Cody is a talented bro with diverse style think Hendrix,funk,soul, rock,just hav an open mind and u will feel the vibe. I love music that is rich in personal quality, Headphone Masterpiece is just that.This was all done in Codys Bedroom so the quality is raw, hissin and keyboard drum kicks, but all this adds 2 the brilliance to the Album. If uve heard the single with the ROOTS 'The Seed' u will find the original cut here and its cool. This artist is here showing us that music is not all about glossy videos and expensive studios. True talent can capture u at its rawes form. I recommend everyone check it out. It may take a while 2 get ur head around but trust since iv bought it, i cant stop playing the Headphone Masterpiece!!!

So 14 years later and Frank Ocean releases an album of lo-fi neo soul inflected experimentation and critics fall over themselves to praise it. This is very similar in intent and somewhat in sound and has several highlights but for that its flabby and even more self indulgent than Blond by Mr Ocean. There's a really good album in here but 36 odd tracks is about 20 too many at least.

Oh my god its been a long time since something tugged on the heartstrings like this lo fi masterpiece. Ultra eclectic tarvelling the most wonderful souful cosmic landscape Cody Chesnutt is a genius. Ranging from prince to Mos Def to Sly to the Beta Band in influences each tune is delightfully difference. This album hits you the first time you hear it.

This album is certainly not for everyone. If you like high production predictable pop, browse off to a Top 40 list. This, bless Cody, is a work of the heart.

There are some songs which simply don't work well, but they are few and far between. You are getting a double album for the price of one disc -- you can't complain. But duff songs aside, there are so many truly great songs that there is no reason to deny this album. Hats off to Cody - like all great albums, he hasn't taken the path of least resistance, lowest-common-denominator cliche-riddled music.

Not for everyone, but for those who like raw, emotional music from a real artist -- you shouldn't let this pass you by.

The sheer banality of the lyrics ruin what, musically, is quite a heady mix, more for white musos than black soul or other fans. "Bitch, I'm broke" repeated over and over again really is not the sign of any kind of insight. Just macho stupidity. And two CDs of this stuff. I've tried folks, but it is just depressingly inane.
