Wow. Garbage. After listening this feels like a complete money grab. 11 tracks, with only ONE track over 2 minutes long. This shouldn't have been promoted as an RSD release with a comic, it should been reversed and stated it's a comic book that comes with an EP with under 20 minutes of music. Plus the majority def come across as throwaway beats, otherwise they'd be used on an actual LP with the Czar members flowing over it. I felt this way about their last RSD instrumentals release, but this one is even more of a hustle. I'm done w/ Czarface instrumental albums.
These kind of projects are a fresh breath to the Hip Hop scene, a dash of experimentation, and a heaping of fringe fanboy creativity. It was actually an absolute trip receiving my first comic book as vinyl album, and felt much like Christmas morning. The listening experience, reading along with the story made it an extra special experience. The song scapes are good, and the sound quality is solid. A great package for the age, for sure. My only gripe is the paper sleeve, which left paper shards on my vinyl, but easy enough to clean off. No scratches or serious pops. This one’s a good player.
Great sound and packaging for this release. The instrumental record definitely enhances the comic that is included. Will say I did finish reading through the story just about when Side A was finishing, which felt a bit short. But if that’s how it was intended, it’s great because you’ll still have Side B to vibe to without having to focus on reading material. Little hard to get the record out and into the sleeve too 😅. Looking forward to more releases like this tho 🙌.
