  1. Contains some of his most memorable moments to date.
  2. Mm.. Food? is a weird, amorphous album that somehow feels simultaneously dashed-off and like the culmination of everything Doom has been working toward his entire career.

    [Doom] flips countless edible metaphors over hard-hitting, jazzy beats while never devolving into pointless parody. [3 Dec 2004, p.87]
  4. He traverses the well-trodden avenues of gun and drug rap, reinterpreting redundant rhetoric into remarkable displays of comic genius, all while sticking firmly to a food motif.
  5. In the end, most of the songs on MM..Food? are of typical Doom quality (for the uninitiated, that means â??excellentâ?), but the album is severely bogged down both by a few duds and by a trio of interludes in the middle of the album.
  6. When MF Doom takes the time to plot and scheme it, no idea is too outlandish, no beat too unorthodox, and much of MMâ?¦Food? is the work of a master chef cooking up some marvelous shit. However, masters get held to a higher standard.
  7. Half of the fun with Dumile has always been the unexpected, ridiculous sampling and the storyline he develops around it. MMâ?¦Food seems unable to capture this element. Doom manages to drop a few great songs, but as an album, MMâ?¦Food falls flat.

    Here in Holland everybody listens to the same 'ol commercial crapheap who r all "on top o tha game'. I'm glad that there are Here in Holland everybody listens to the same 'ol commercial crapheap who r all "on top o tha game'. I'm glad that there are still rappers like doom who don't rhyme about all the superviscial stuff like "rollin on 22"" and all that type of shit. Doom made it overseazz and for an underground rapper that's some big shit.. Expand
