Absolutely gorgeous album. Not unlike oldschool hip-hop duets, Clint Eastwood & General Saint master the the art of lyrical dialogue to a degree not many deejay duets have reached. "Talk About Run" is probably one of the best examples of deejay storytelling comedy. But they can also do it in a serious style - there have been many tributes to the late General Echo, but this one is the most touching.

Musicwise, "Two Bad DJ" is really impressive too. Heavy riddims, stripped-down to pure drum and bass, pave the way for the two deejays' lyrical artillery. I listened to "Can't Take Another World War" on a mixtape for the first time and my jaw dropped, and it dropped even deeper when I got to know that it's no 2000s remix, but an original 1981 heavyweight production.
