  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.

    I think MF Doom's album is the best I've heard in a long time. As far as I'm concerned he is one of the few that still I think MF Doom's album is the best I've heard in a long time. As far as I'm concerned he is one of the few that still represents the true essence of what hip-hop is all about: raw, rugged, and still with that hungry artist in the basement feel. Plus I'm a child of the 70's, so I'm digging the samples he uses from the old Marvel and Filmation cartoons. As a matter of fact I am listening to track 3 while I'm typing this review. Expand

    Not as vital as Doom's work on Madvillian, but a worthy addition to the Doom mythology.
