I hate the genre for its repetitiveness, its whiny ass vocalists and the usually terrible lyrics. But hell, I love a lot of this album. MF Doom certainly has a great voice, with an incredible flow. The other vocalists are quite nice also too, and I even like Quasimoto, even though he can get quite annoying.

I was put off my this album when I listened to it to the first time, but every time I listen to this album, I just appreciate it more and more.

Madlib and Egon were in Brazil after the first round of tracks were put together, which Madlib bought to listen to on a CD-R. He made a few more beats out there which would end up on the album, using a portable record player, an SP and a borrowed cassette deck.

Declaring the album "already out," the artists more or less gave up on the record and it took months to bring them back to the project. Madvillainy Madvillainy 2. The Mouse and the Mask Occult Hymn.

DOOM released his solo sophomore album, Mm.. Food , the same year as Madvillainy and has embarked on his own instrumental series himself. It just is what it is. March 23, AM.

Some people take the new chilled delivery as somehow inferior to the old incarnation, but taken in context, the album benefits from the re-recording, particularly in cases were Doom re-arranges couplets to optimize his punchlines "Meat Grinder" or adds new lines altogether "Figaro".

For a collaboration which the duo has described as something "like a telepathy thing. There wasn't a lot of talking," Madlib and Doom, proponents of two distinctive hip-hop styles, are of one unusually strong mind. The axis of Madvillainy is Otis Jackson Jr. While Doom's entire career has been shadowed by consistently strong production efforts, never has such chemistry developed between him and another beatmaker.

And it isn't just the beats that make the partnership work so well: The character of his vocal samples and the smoothness of his song-to-song segues make this album individual to the styles of both artists-- a difference that puts this pairing far ahead of similarly talented teams like Rjd2 and Blueprint's Soul Position. Yeah, I know: wouldn't it be nice if more members of the hip-hop nation had problems like these?

But the fact remains that both of these men have more ideas than one single conventional alias can contain, and together they have so many ideas that the album can barely contain them. Most songs clock in at around just under two minutes or so, and that makes for an extremely frustrating listening experience. The songs barely remain for long enough to establish a groove and a theme -- by the time you're to the point where most rap songs would hit the first chorus, Madlib has already slid a new beat into the mix and the album is off and running into new territory before you can get your bearings.

Most full-length hip-hop LPs outlast their welcome, but Madvillainy is frustratingly short. The album kicks off with the one-two punch of "Accordion" and "Meat Grinder. It's a perfect example of the type of lyric at which Doom excels. It's a tongue twister, with multiple contrasting internal rhymes and almost nonsensical verses jammed together in a way that almost sounds silly but doesn't.

If language is arbitrary, then many of Doom's verses exploit the essence of words stripped of meaning, random conglomerations of syllables assembled in an order that only makes sense from a rhythmical standpoint. Sometimes Doom is almost comically obtuse, but his endearingly menacing drawl remains his saving grace. There's an interlude called "Bistro" that can't help but remind you of Biggie's "Juicy".

I never quite noticed just how much Doom, with his almost-monotone rasp sounds like the late Notorious B. While Madlib's beats make the album a sonic feast, there's no doubt that Doom's aesthetic remains dominant. The constant barrage of comic book dialogue samples and the loping, off-kilter jazz loops bring to mind the RZA's best spook-fests. It's the skipping-record melodic hook that makes it so unusual: it's that rare hip-hop song with a violin breakdown.

The instrumental "Supervillain Theme" could be a DJ Shadow b-side, complete with trilling '70s guitar samples and the hard-rock drum breaks. But "All Caps" is the album's climax, with deceptively cheerful jazz samples contrasted against an uncharacteristically legible rhyme from Doom.

The next-to-last track, "Great Day Today", is the most personal statement on a stridently abstruse album. In a day and age when rapping is most often compared to athletics, Doom reminds us that rapping is in fact an art. Born Like This Unexpected Guests.
