A personal classic for me, released in 1997, very different production and subject matterwise to Violent by Design(another classic) which is far more religious, and Islam/5% orientated,although Paz was into that stuff before VBD.

The Psycho-Social, Chemical, Biological & Electro-Magnetic Manipulation of Human Consciousness

Some of Stoupe's best production is on here packed with Wu samples(although all round 95% of his stuff is banging) Some of the effects remind me a little bit of the haunting production on Gravediggaz' releases and Tug of War samples them.

Vinnie Paz is dope as fuck, extremely hungry.

It has a gloomy,spaced out feel and dope lyrics about ancient astronauts, mythology etc.

Track is one of the best on the album, you can't go wrong with ODB and Raekwon sampling. Jus Allah/Black Thought can't go wrong.

may aswell post the whole lp. it is bangin your right, was originally only released on vinyl wish i had that!

back in the day when i was using mIRC Apathy use to chat on the same channel #rap on Dalnet as "ApathyX" when they were first a 2 man group Demigodz with a dude called JediX dunno what happened to him, apathy use to drop some text freestyles on there and even they blew me away! this was just before this album dropped! ive followed his releases but dont feel he's ever put down a classic like he could much like Canibus.... was also a dude called Tony Infamous on there whos dropped some good joints aswell....

Haha didnt know I posted so many vids, got carried away. Yeah its dope, I was looking to get Violent by Design CD which is very pricey, but I found it for $20 off UGHH.com which is a decent price . I'd love to have the original non Babygrande rerelease VBD. CD

Crazy dope album...

Ikon the Verbal Hologram was on hungry as fuck on this album.

Apathy the Alien Tounge & LCoB provided some incredible features.

"As It Was In The Beginning" is my all-time favorite Stoupe instrumental.

And of course the various WU samples throughout the album are a plus.

I love JMT's entire discography.

its dope, stoupe production reminded me of rza, i liked vinnies flow on this album i jus wish jus allah was on it too, oh and during the psycho social time vinnie was more involved with hinduism than islam, i love the books of blood track, the first dude spittin is ill, i think thats rasul allah if im not mistaken

^Yeah Psycho Social covers all sorts of religions didn't know Paz was more into Hinduism there, increases my appreciation of his music, since thats my faith. Jus Allah is on the album.

The diss is OTT but I like the lyrics nonetheless. Beat is dope too.

if you dudes like this album i seriously suggest you look into the "Earth Chronicles" books by Zecharia Sitchin, they all deal with Sumerion mythology, the Annunaki, Nibiru, etc.

This whole album is basically based on these books

Even if you don't like the album, it's really interesting stuff

yea the beat is ill, i foudn the sample once but i forgot it, jus allahs only on one track isnt he? the bonus one with black thought, the rest of the features are LCOB and apathy

and although those books mite be intereswsting, people say that sitchin didnt translate the sumerian tablets well at all and theirs a lot of stuff he just made up from the mistranslations
