That good ol' track by track :

1. Introduction 3.5 a bit too slow to rap over
2. New Year Banga 4 not dope but good
3. Illness - 4 flashes of brilliance... cash in abundance... good
4. Associated (f. Gza) - 4.5 fast beat, kinda ill... can't stand that new gza voice though
5. Mixture Of Muhammad - 3.5 not that bad but sort of a filler
6. Iconoclasts - 4.5 dope horns, great song
7. Founder Of Pain - 4 good shit, couldve gotten tiring had it been longer
8. Blinded - 5 love that shit, signature Bronze track............. but its produced by Kevlaar !
9. Up There Beyond - 4.5 one of my favorite, vocal sample is ill
10. Verbal Joust - 3.5 another that looks life a filler, but then again i cant front, i like it
11. Words from the Prodigal Sunn - ^^
12. Goblins - 5 that beat is fire, Planet Asia rips it, real dope
13. Welcome Home - 4 between 2 great tracks, it pales in comparison
14. Honor's Promise - 5 love that shit... once again i was surprised to see that Kev's behind the boards
15. Wisemen Approaching - 4 good way to end the album

As i love trumpets and vocal samples, i couldn't help but enjoy the cd... It lacks some microphone skills sometimes and more uptempo joints. Each song taken one by one is at least good, there are some dope dope tracks, it's very cohesive but it can seem a bit flat taken as a whole.

4/5 for the album

It's a good album but nothing mind-blowing.

not really

its just got a real bleak vibe

no playfulness at all



its all about fleeting victories in a world going down in flames



it couldve used a couple tracks like Pinky Ring

its possible to be deep and still be upbeat



just like the Think Differently album - the saving graces on there were the first track wiff GZA and Ras Kass, the solo track by Del, and the two tracks near the end by CCF and RA/J-Live


if you had taken out ANY of those tracks, that album would have been like staring out the window on a grey overcast rainy day


there is a lot of silver lining
even in Detroit


MF Doom is a walking testament that you can speak on the horrors of the world and still be easy breezy

Here's the crackspace page for the Wisemen. check out the Iconoclasts video. They replaced Killah Priest's verse with one from Salute but it's still tight. Best low budget video I've seen since Bone Thugs
