There is hip hop that traverses worlds but to reach Universalis (consider langua from Ivory Coast) where semantics are broken apart for other-worldly parathesia-like lyrics that stun and paralyze your body is what makes this album particularly unique. You won't find a better hip hop album, EL_p is certainly better at stabs than cutted loops or w/e which manifolds like sip rather than usurpation. We don't have Worlds for another century, glad to enjoy for now.

Unquestionably one of the best hip hop albums of all time. From the raw talent and lyrical content on through the delivery of said content by rappers Vast Aire & Vordul, coupled with the spaced-out, hallucinogenic production by EL-P, it is easy to recognize that there is very little, if anything, that could be done to make this album better. A true rap masterpiece.

Man, this sounds so good. Much nicer dynamics than the streaming version I got familiar with. Definitely pick this up if you're a fan of this amazing LP.

For some reason I haven't listened to this for a couple of years, but now I'm listening to this on cassette tape on a crappy old 80's Hitachi boombox and it sounds amazing. It actually might even sound better on a boombox. The production is still a couple of galaxies away from everything else. The beats on Pigeon...

Just got an original so I can finally compare. This release sounds great but the printing on the sleeve is poor. Overall I was happy with it.

Prefer the the artwork of the original def jux pressing which I was stupid enough to give away when I got bored of listening to it to death lol. Well at least I get the instros with this one, it's some of el-p's finest production IMO.
