Happy to support Ten Bands One Cause initiative started 2014 in aid of persons diagnosed with breast cancer and their relatives. This pressing is decent sounding, quiet surface. Sounds digital as you'd expect, lacking an overall depth and dimensionality. The seamless transition between "Tougher Colder Killer" and "True Story" is abruptly severed between sides B & C, which is slightly annoying. Why not at least smooth out with fades or remove the transition altogether if you know it's going to be split across two vinyl sides? Anyway, this is still a great album, probably El-P's best outside his Run The Jewels work.

Track 11, STAY DOWN, does not feature Killer Mike. El-P is the only emcee on the track and Nick Thorburn provides some vocals.

This is a great addition to my collection. It sounds good, but the black vinyl edition without instrumentals is sonically superior. May have to do with this version's colored vinyl. Good for a collector but standard vinyl a better listen.

This sounds far better than the cd or digital version on my setup.

Paranoid, Orwellian, heady beats. Complex, clever, emotional words. Great all-around album from El Producto. Dedicated to friend of El-P, Camu Tao.

Sounds like Dr. Oktagon, Madlib and The Roots mixed together. The result however has many downsides on trying-to-sound-big. Maybe it's fully pointed at the American market, but the in your face aproach is so serious it leaves no room for artistic subtleties and introspective moments. I's very varied in sound, yet it is very consistent. The rhymes are often funny and grab attention. The question I constantly ask myself though while listenin: 'Is this music for a commercial of a to big ego trying to sell its status to infinty?' I try not to be bothered and nod along.
