    Being completely honest, I find this album the best MF DOOM’s record ever, even better when put together with the Bookhead EP.

    Can someone help me find my version? Digipack CD, barcode is 8-78390-00201-6 but matrix has 07/22/2012 12:03:45 AM #78736 IFPI LN08 2202013 01. Doesn't say anywhere what country it was made in, and this matrix doesn't match anything on here at all

    This is one of doom's best albums...not for generic clones that only like madvillain

    The metal faced villain is back! Sort of. Due to a mix-up with his visa, he’s been stuck in London since the end of his European tour. Being a pretty chill guy, Doom didn’t try to pull the celebrity card to gain entry back into the U.S. but has been collaborating with the likes of Damon Albarn, Thom Yorke, and Jneiro Jarel – from which JJ Doom and Key to the Kuffs was born. The theme of the album is decidedly British, which kind of clashes with the villain’s previous personas. He attempts to dig deep into his knowledge of British culture and whatnot, but unfortunately there just isn’t much of a reserve to draw from. He should’ve left the British theme at face value and instead focused on what makes him my favorite rapper: his ability to transform the mundane into the magical. Doom can take anything, spin it, put it in a different light, dress it up, and make you see it as an entirely new idea. We see a little of this magic “Wash Your Hands”, but definitely not as much as in Doom’s previous work. Mm…Food was pure genius – an album that was “about food”, but that was really about everything from fake friends to shocking the one eyed dolphin. The brilliant food metaphors and esoteric content made it necessary to stop and listen to each line separately in order to digest what Doom was really serving up.

    Unfortunately, I just don’t get the same vibe from Key to the Kuffs. The samples aren’t weird enough, the guest appearances are distorted beyond recognition, and when it comes down to it, Doom just isn’t British. He needs to come back to the U.S., do a couple more Herbs & Spices, and grab a concept that he can do justice to. And he should probably stop sending impersonators on stage while he’s at it. A true supervillain would give the people a good show, regardless of the cost.
