    This is one of those albums that manages to gain many fans outside it's intended audience. Regardless of your feellngs on rap and hip hop check this album out. Check out the lyric booklet before you pass off the quick rapping as a novelty. He's just packing all his thoughts in as little time as possible. One of the best so far this year.

  1. His delivery is exhilarating, but it made me nervous, jittery. It’s kind of like Miles Davis scatting, but instead of a trumpet he’s playing the entire writing staff of The Simpsons.
  2. His guffawing voice makes him sound like every rhyme he delivers is a punchline.
  3. He has humour and cerebral sharpness in spades.
