I think it's a complicated too, like I know his son passed away a few years ago, and I think he's been deported from Mericuh, which I imagine would slow any MFer down a bit. In case anyone missed

bump bc doom is the best

I mean, I don’t listen to him on the regular or anything, but nothing ever made me think, “Why is DOOM wasting time on this MC.” He’s solid, not amazing. I probably should have expanded on that.

I heard it a couple of times, it was really nice. It probably doesn't top VV1, OP:D or Madvillain, but overall, it's a nice album.

 

7.8/10

 

Best tracks:

Gazzillion Ear

Yessir!

Still Dope

Absolutely

Cellz

Lol

 

I preordered a couple of days ago after hearing the leak. I is poor college student, so I'm hoping for something good.

yeah some times it just doesn't sound as perfect, but this album is still pretty great.

 

I feel like That's That should be on that list too.

CD just arrived, I avoided listening to the album before; the only tracks I'd heard were Cellz, Ballskin and That's That.

Only halfway through, but I'm definitely liking it so far, Gazzillion Ear is great

 

If anyone's interested, the freebies I got were:

 

Shape of Broad Minds mix CD

2 cutout Doom-masks (one Dangerdoom one, and one with the Born Like This artwork)

a page of Neon Neon stickers

do really like this but not sure if its up there with his older stuff, tho will prob grow on me as only heard it twice all the way through.. and alsoThink his voice is mixed a little odd, sounds too loud and sounds messy in the mix imo. again might just take a bit of getting used to tho & doom still got the mad flow (ohh that rhymed maybe I should be a rapper 2!! ;)

 

btw I really like that Shape of Broad minds album sampler thingy, may have to check the album out

yeah when I had head the youtube etc. I thought it was like a unmastered beta version since it was out early... but when I heard it on the real thing I was almost confused, oh well..

Just got it in the mail yesterday. For some reason, I like it even more than when I heard the leak. It's a good album; doesn't top Madvillain or Operation: Doomsday, but easily blows VV2, just passes Dangerdoom, and gives MM FOOD a run for its money.

 

8/10

 

Really good album. :angry:

this is growing on me, I think just as good as MM.. FOOD, and better than the Dangermouse collab. It's no operation Doomsday though, or his Madlib Collab.

yeah has really grown on me to, was listening to it in the car last night and this morning and clicked with me and now really like it. Agree with it being better than dangerdoom, thought that was one of the weakest things he has done. and yeah think it may be better than mmm...food. Still think the vocals could have been mixed much better tho, but gives it a raw feel which I guess aint all bad.

Anyone else here like Batty Boyz? The lyrics are silly as shit and the track name is a bit...fucked up. But I really dug it. I never though I'd hear a hip-hop song discussing gay superheroes, especially in ironic seemingly anti-homophobic manner, and the beat is pretty good. I'd go as far to say it's one of the reasons I dug this album so much, it's leftfield even by MF Doom standards.

i can't tell if it's homophobic or ironic.

the lyrics for batty boys are just horrible. ironic or not, its definitely in poor taste. and considering he admitted voting for mccain... well... i wouldn't be suprised if he was secretly some super ultraconservative (not saying he is, just wouldnt be surprised!).:rolleyes:

his recent interview at rollingstone i think really just makes it seem like he's a jerk. the bogus live shows with fake doom lipsyncing? yea well, he's okay with that since now he's being offered more money for shows. what a joke....

:getlost:

I haven't heard it yet so I dunno about the clipping but doom has been known to "copy+paste" his lyrics together before, it might not be a real flow

 

but I hope not

dont think batty boyz is homophobic & despite the slightly dodgy subject matter its a top tune and one of my favs on the album. Really loving this album now has grown on me loads since i first heard it

      "Once having said that he has 100 albums in him, it seems the former Zev Love X is getting overwhelmed, if at least a bit. “I have so many starting points, I have to be careful,” DOOM explains. I have to, like, put in an order, or else I’ll get lost in it. And one will ever get anything from me ever again; you’ll have the Super Villain going in circles.” He certainly seems to have no time to brush up on his contemporaries. When asked if he respected label mate Homeboy Sandman and the tour-de-force that is Action Bronson, for their humored hip-hop, he simply said, “Never heard of them. I don’t get a chance to listen to new stuff.” He did have nothing but praise for BDP’s Criminal Minded."
       
      "Since his mind seems always in the music, he quickly diverted back to talking about his slate of upcoming projects. “The second Madvillain album is almost done―it’s coming out ill,” he revealed. “That’ll be done this year.” Though the word “done” seems to be a relative term for the prolific MC. “Then it’ll be DOOMSTARKS―I know everybody’s been waiting for that on,” he offered. “I just kicked it with DOOMSTARKS in Australia for five days. We worked on a lot of little odds and ends, we’ll be wrapping up on that one soon too.” And in what might be a XXL exclusive, because “to this day it’s [his] favorite hip-hop magazine,” DOOM revealed murky details about another unannounced album."
       
      "Due to label constraints he could only say, “Let’s put it like this: I’m doing some work with a New York style producer, right. Someone who produced mad hits and shit,” he said. “Hardcore hits. Shit that―it’s totally unexpected but I’m not going to reveal it at this time.” After a little more prying, “Can I give a hint? Ugh, I would say―nah! I can’t even give a hint. New York hit-maker! ‘90s, and it’s not Primo. Try to figure it out.”
