    For me there are 3 main things that make an album: The beats, the rhymes, and how the rhymes fit the beats. This album only has a few good beats (most of them are too mainstream for my taste), and after 2 listens I can't think of any rhymes that stand out. There are no beats dropping out on dope rhymes because there are no dope rhymes. No creativity.

  1. Man vs. Machine is an intense set that never stops.

    Entertaining, largely forgettable. [Jan 2003, p.120]

    As a whole, Man Vs. Machine signifies a dialectic vacillation between lyrics and beats that are refreshingly intelligent, without being pretentious, and themes (manifested sonically and ideologically) that are recycled and uninspired.
