To be honest, definitely not Skrillex at his best, in my opinion. Not bad, just not good, either.

He's releasing the album on cassette on Record Store Day as an Exclusive

This guy finally makes a REAL album!!
It only took YEARS!
But I wonder if it was worth the wait.
Meh. I guess.

Anyways, here's my take on each track...
1. If this track was made to diss Zomboy, why invite the Ragga Twins for such a bad joke?
(Don't get me wrong, though. They do some good on it.)
2. This is actually one of my favorite tracks. Skrillex and Kill the Noise always make a killer combo! The instrumental is more interesting than the vocals, although.
3. This is another one of my favorites. It has a cool, bouncy vibe to it for a KillaGraham co-production. The rest get pretty deep. The vocals are decent, too.
4. Not much to say for this one. I guess you could call it "Brostep at its Finest".
5. "...and ask you what you're interests are. Who you be with." - The Notorious B.I.G. in "Big Poppa"
Also, this is the closest thing to a straight-up drum & bass track you'll get from this album.
6. The title says everything! Yet I can't get over how "Diplo" it sounds. Really, he didn't need Skrillex for this track, but at least they've finished one together.
7. See. Now, this makes sense. Compared to the first track, this is where the RT belong.
No, wait. Nope. This track is still way too harsh, even for me.
8. OK. Now, this one sounds like it was literally made to fascinate an audience of children. I don't think I can put it any better way.
9. His attempt to merge his "new-age" style with that "old-school" club sound.
10. Cool remix, bro. Heard the original. Not sure if he made the song any better or worse.
11. I like the simplicity and the ambiance this song gives out. Though it sounds like Sonny is the one who's singing and Kid Harpoon could be a co-producer.
... and that's my 2¢.
