    Evidence and Iriscience are perhaps the least talented emcees in underground hip hop today. The beats on this album are listenable, but Evidence and Iriscience are perhaps the least talented emcees in underground hip hop today. The beats on this album are listenable, but nowhere near enough to save listeners from drowning out the pointless lyrics. Full Review »

    I am a HUGE Dilated Peoples fan and I have all their albums and vinyl singles dating all the way back to songs they did on rare compilations I am a HUGE Dilated Peoples fan and I have all their albums and vinyl singles dating all the way back to songs they did on rare compilations in the early 90's. So needless to say I was looking foward to this CD and was highly dissapointed. Evidence & Iriescience are lyrically dope as ever, and have opened up their style to encompass new themes and ideas. The production on the other hand is really weak. Even the usually dependable Alchemist brings some of his laziest beats ever, and the rest of the beats by Joey Chavez, Evidence & DJ Babu are forgettable and boring. If they had switched up the monotonous production or brought on some good guest appearances, this could've been better. Overall, it's still better than 80% of hip hop out there but it's their weakest album to date. Full Review »
