    Once again, I'd give it a 9.5, but not quite a 10 for me so I gave it a 9, love this shit, my favorite Doom CD.
    In the world I see, you're stalking elk through the damp canyon forest around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty carpool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

    great album for sure, but a couple of the beats get a bit repetitive for me. lyrically its one of the best in the past few years and arguably doom spits the hardest on here

    8/10

    In the ways of the world today
    It's so easy for us to stray away
    Trying to keep our mind from all the drugs and crime
    Material things keep us blind

    yeah, some of the beats can be boring which kinda brings it down. Love the first 3 tracks tho, Vaudeville Villian, Lickupon and The Drop.

    Best Hip-Hop Album
    Year in Review 2003

    December 02, 2003



    1. Viktor Vaughn Vaudeville Villain (Sound-Ink)

    Underground mystery MF Doom, formerly of KMD, emerged in two alternate guises this year ó a three-headed alien called King Geedorah, but more importantly, as Viktor Vaughn, a spacy, sci-fi rap stranger from a strange rap land. For heads who were most hotly anticipating the arrival of MM Food, the proper follow-up to Doomís 1999 album Operation: Doomsday, the success of Viktor Vaughn is the yearís most pleasant surprise.

    "Doom and Viktor are two different individuals," Doom points out. Both personas are loosely based on the Marvel Comics character Victor Von Doom, the ambitious young scientist who becomes the Fantastic Fourís arch-nemesis, Dr Doom, when an experiment goes awry. But Viktor Vaughn is from an alternate time and universe from MF Doom. "Heís a younger cat, so when he comes, heís straight on some rip-the-mic shit. He might pop up at a club somewhere, grab the mic." Which is what he does on "Open Mic Night," a two-part posse cut masquerading as a live open mic event. A lot of the rest of the album is made up of battle raps from a young, hungry MC that builds the character of Viktor Vaughn, sometimes even rapping in the second person. But itís not all braggadocio; thereís the humorous punch line that is "Modern Day Mugging" and the he-said/she-said ballad "Let Me Watch," featuring Apani B Fly as the love interest, Nikki. No matter the type of narrative, Vaudeville Villain is littered with Doomís witty pop-references told with a slick flow. Where Vaudeville Villain differs from previous Doom projects is the absence of the distinctly Ď80s Metal Fingers sound.

    "He donít really produce too much," Doom says of Vaughn. "He really just rhymes." Instead, Vaughn went to the boys at Sound-Ink for a spacy, electronic-influenced sound that firmly anchors the album within the concept. "Viktor touched down in Brooklyn," home of Sound-Ink. "Thatís where he beamed in at and something went wrong with his gizmo-gadget-time-travelling thing. He met Heat Sensor at a bar in Brooklyn and it just so happens they had things in common. Heat Sensor was experimenting with time travel at the time." It also just so happens that Heat Sensor made beats; he brought along the rest of the Sound Ink producers, King Honey and Max Bill. Plus thereís RJD2ís "Saliva," arguably the albumís highlight, although that honour could also go to the hyper "Vaudeville Villain" anthem or the creepy "Never Dead," featuring Anti-Pop Consortiumís M. Sayyid. No matter the form it takes, Vaudeville Villain is a career-defining moment for MF Doom.

    The bass on GMC should be put to the max when in your cab-fucking tight. Dooms always been crazy,since his Zev dayz check him on Never Dead - "on the villa macking life, i saw them freeze roaches & bring straight back to life" makes me picture the surprise on dooms face thru the mask. The whole albums tight, i didnt need to listen to this album b4 i bought it-even b4 the hype came around this album was already in my hands blowing headz up... Popsnot

    Dooms best lyrically and flow wise. Seems that he has alot of energy on tracks compared to madvillain and mm food. Favourite tracks are Let Me Watch and Modern Day Mugging.


    Beats are very experimental but some get boring and thats why it gets a 9 instead of 10.

    Averagely produced album. Viktor Vaugn's MC'ing was admirable, though.
