    Don't get me wrong, it is very good. Problem for me is that almost evey song is less than 2 mins and most have spoken word at the start for about 30 to 40 seconds. This means we get only about 1 min of actual music per track. Those 1 mins of music are amazing, but I would have preferred longer tracks. Each time I get into a track, it ends. I'd love to hear these songs streched Don't get me wrong, it is very good.

Madlib is amazing talent. No doubt about it. I love that he sampled Van Dyke Parks...it was like a personal shout-out to me. Expand

  1. A very detailed, though still utterly bewildering, glimpse into the producer's musical thought process.
  2. Falling somewhere between a compilation, a beat CD and a producer showcase, this fails to satisfy on any of those levels.

    This wild pastiche demonstrates why Madlib is one of the most talented heads in hip-hop. [Apr/May 2006, p.103]
