I was a little put-off by some lukewarm reviews for this album, thinking maybe it was that inevitable point where a great artist starts to coast or something. When I finally picked it up, a year late, I was pleasantly surprised to find it was a great listen beginning to end. Well, that'll teach me. It is perhaps a bit more listenable than his previous albums, in that the sounds are a bit clearer and sharper in the mix and mastering. Does that matter? It's not a bad thing. I won't compare it to his previous albums though, just take it as it comes and it's a great modern day mutant hip-hop album, pulling in strains of all kinds of music from dub to jazz and spinning them back out over some great beats.
