Oh boy, what an amazing album! Even now, roughly 12 years after its release, it still sounds like nothing else. In fact, I have only known it for a relatively short while. Whilst the sound of the late 90's can be identified here and there, it's a timeless album. The production is incredibly raw - and that is a good thing! By messing about with samples from our favorite childhood TV series, MF Doom managed to squeeze more soul into this album than today's big producers will ever manage with their "clean and perfect" production. The fact that it was Doom's first solo-release after a long period of musical abstinence makes it even more impressive, somewhat like a piece of outsider art, unbiased by popular trends.

The album - aside from tracks that are just straight forward and fun ("Rhymes Like Dimes") has an intense atmosphere, yet it's never taking itself too seriously. The title track is just plain beautiful and an instant seller. Tracks like "The Mic" or "Gas Drawls" pretty much sound like the soundtrack to some later afternoon fever-fantasy brought on my heat stroke - to me anyway. Almost like a suburban version of Boards of Canada.

Highly recommended essential release not only to Rap and Hip Hop lovers.
