its wicked, but over rated. as a whole album i thought it was real good, no real standout track particularly.

8.5/10 or 9/10.

At one point I tried to convince myself that this album was better than it is, but in the end I just really don't much care for Kool Keith. 'Blue Flowers' is awesome, 'Halfsharkalligatorhalfman' is really good, and there are a few other pretty good songs, but as a whole I just don't think this album is all that great. It's creative. I appreciate its originality and relevance in hip hop, but I just don't really think it's all that good. There's a lot of really shitty hooks on it too. I think the most I could give it would be about 7/10.

keith's definitely in my top 20 mcs, maybe even top 10, but i absolutely understand why a lot of people can't get into him. he's like the ornette coleman of hiphop. that being said, i dare you to front on ultramagnetic mc's critical beatdown lp. in ego trip's book of rap lists they rate keith higher than 2pac.

because of creativity...not necessarily lyrical skill.

No, when Kool Keith is on point he tears a hole in every rapper. That includes fucking Tupac. Listen to Critical Beatdown.

8.5/10 or 9/10.

you guys saying "overrated" type remarks are fucked! Youre sounding reeeal ignorant right now.

You completelyforgetting that this was recorded in 1995! Automator was 10 years ahead of the game with his production, Keith has never spit it better, no one has got as creative with their rhymes as keith did on this. again i repeat this was recorded 1995, imagine hearing this shit when it came out then, revolutionary rap. I'm not saying its an all-all-all time classic, but its never been over-rated, its under-rated in what it did for the game.

Man but serious, this type of shit would never get released now, its as much of a one off as Illmatic.

I think Pac was pretty weak. Yes Kool Keith is da shit though!

I wouldn't say Pac's weak, his lyrics just get repetitive. Listen to 'the 7-Day Theory' though, that album solidifies him as a fantastic MC.

makaveli was decent, but the cadences get repetitive. i notice no one has tried to say pac is better than keith.

KK off beat lyrics are not my thing, but it is 9/10 for me still.

"..beat it, like Michael Jackson in my atmosphere.."

the intro uses the same sample as an OGC joint off their first album maybe it was "da storm" i cant remember

anyway this is a dope album. best track is earth people. it sounds real similar to 3030 to me

This is one CRAZY album! It really shows that Kool Keith has been in a mental hospital for a while , because the stuff he raps about here goes way beyond sanity! Having sex with female patients as he is a gynaecologist and other stuff like that hahaha....
