i bought this the other week, its niiice, bangaz from start to finish, Ox Out The Cage was ma personal fav. trak on there
i lack that part of me thats supposed to give a fuck
im so fuckin ballin' i walk around with L1NK's muma on ma dick muh'fucka
10 definite banger 4 the ride, 1 of my alltime favorites
Yo the theme was dope,vordul n vast aire ,tru classic
''Imma stay blazin mics till i fade of the surface and return to ma nature''
jus' bringin' it back, 10/10..
albums the essence.
Classic production... Vast Aire comes INCREDIBLE... Seriously, jaw-dropping...
"she was in a love triangle
but it wasn't like my feelings weren't there to make it a square"
"you think you can fit me in that anorexic space between love and hate?
I got all of the first one and none of the other"
"My mother said "you sucked my pussy when you came out
Don't ever talk back
I handled your life and I'll snatch it back""
Vordul ain't as good as Vast though... I mean, yeah, he comes pretty dope at times, but overall his style doesn't fit the production as well as Vast's, and he just usually gets outshined... But far from enough to bring this album down to a 9, 'cus he's still a good rapper.

One is in their mouth the other, does the killin'"
EDIT: Also, i love how Vast and Vordull have two totally different style. Vast comes with his laid back flow and Vordull just plain attacks tracks with his complex and abstract flows. hip hop doesnt get any better than this.
El-P's production - 10/10
Vast Aire's verses - 10/10
Vordull's verses - 10/10

I think it's a 10/10. El-P's production is amazing and Vordul Mega rips it. Vast Aire handles his own.
Wow, I'd have said they were both amazing but if pushed to decide I would have put Vast's performance ahead of Vordul's!

I've got the instrumentals on vinyl, and it's a crazy album to listen to even without the lyrics.

Dope ass album. Vast aire comes poetic and el-p production makes me feel as if I am in the future and robots just took over the planet. 10/10
vast got the classic quotables but i thought vordul had nastier verses overall imo. beats are crazy. never heard a rap album sound like that before, prolly wont for a long time.
it's in my top10 hiphop albums of all time
