  • Summary: The hip-hop producer--unusually recording under his own name--offers a soundtrack to an imaginary movie.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 8 out of 10
  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. The 35 stellar instrumental tracks on Vol. 1-2: Movie Scenes make a convincing argument that in the future Madlib--a one-man band in both the literal and figurative sense--might be better off eschewing rappers and singers as collaborators altogether.
  2. A very detailed, though still utterly bewildering, glimpse into the producer's musical thought process.
  3. 80
    Far from sloppy seconds, the album's both imminently enjoyable and a valuable glimpse into the creative process of one of hip-hop's most accomplished producers. [Apr 2006, p.88]
  4. "Movie Scenes" is mystical, it is magical, and it's also prone to confuse some.
  5. Though Madlib's restless joi de vivre keeps Beat Konducta moving at a quick clip... the lack of MC firepower considerably limits its real-life enjoyability.
  6. This wild pastiche demonstrates why Madlib is one of the most talented heads in hip-hop. [Apr/May 2006, p.103]
  7. Falling somewhere between a compilation, a beat CD and a producer showcase, this fails to satisfy on any of those levels.
