    Meow the Jewels deliver emotional depth befitting nature’s most psychologically elusive creature.

    It's oxymoronic. It's uncalled for and essential. It's ridiculous and severe. It's useless and powerful. It's everything Run The Jewels stands for.

    While some tracks unwisely try to replicate the source material's dystopian energy, the best moments come when remixers go blissfully off-script.

    Whereas the original Run the Jewels 2 was a perfect soundtrack for a night of mayhem, Meow the Jewels is the comedown after all that rabble-rousing.

    Most of the internet’s ideas end up in a wet mess on the kitchen floor, but this one, this one sticks.

    The amount of enjoyment you take out of this is undoubtedly directly proportional to the amount of money you put into Meow the Jewels.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I know it's a novelty record but I do genuinely love it and let's face it it's probably the best remix album of all time. I thought it would make me want to blow my brains out but the meows and purrs have been manipulated really well to make the instrumentals so **** you. I'm also pretty sure you can summon cats with it; I was 5 minutes into the album and I saw a cat walking towards my house... The cat peeps love it. How can you disagree with the cats? Expand

    I only like the original RTJ2. It doesn't really need to exist. You don't really need to listen to this to make your life complete. You DOI only like the original RTJ2. It doesn't really need to exist. You don't really need to listen to this to make your life complete. You DO need to listen to the original RTJ2 to make your life complete. It is a little clever with the cat noises and stuff. It seems like a joke or a meme like "Meow The Jewels coming soon..." and we laugh it off but then it ends up being a real album and its like oh... ok Expand
