    I was blown away by Fat John's flow and lyrics in this album. In the track Slow Motion Fat John exemplifies the realness of the beats and thus proves the reality of the lyrical thesis. His time-code theory coupled to the glitchy beats is so cool that it sends chills down your spine. Everything we do in this life has a time code attached to it; and so as the time-code serializes, Fat I was blown away by Fat John's flow and lyrics in this album.

So we wait to see the future and vibe more with this master of time. Expand

    [Fat John's] hyper-literate, cosmically inclined stylings can't help but humanise -- and eventually soften -- the hard burn of circuitry. [Aug 2003, p.111]
  2. A stylistic side-step that trips and falls without making much of the tumble.
  3. These tracks are still filled with weird sounds, it's just not the same sounds you might be expecting.
