    Not as strong as the brilliant "Breaking Kayfabe" but still a damned good album. The review from "NOW Magazine" (a publication that earns itself no respect, generally speaking) couldn't possibly be any further off the mark. Comparing something this biting and fresh to Tom Green's novelty rap is a straight up insult to Cadence, Canadian hip hop, and (why not?) even Green himself.

    Apparentely it's cool now to give a Cadence Weapon album a bad review and say that "he hasn't mastered his craft yet." Well, his true fans didn't get the memo. While not as good as Breaking Kayfabe (which felt other-wordly it was so good), this is no disappointment.

The NOW Toronto is so out of touch he needs to retire. The Lost at Sea guy isn't far behind. Expand

  1. An album that accepts its imperfections as a part of its charm, and, all things considered, a pretty irresistible release.
  2. It’s just brilliant.
  3. Rollie has yet to find his voice, though.
