Default Danger Doom - The Mouse & The Mask



1. El Chupa Nibre
2. Sofa King
3. The Mask feat. Ghostface Killah
4. Perfect Hair
5. Bizzy Box feat. Cee-Lo
6. Old School feat. Talib Kweli
7. A.T.H.F.
8. Basket Case
9. No Names (Black Debbie)
10. Crosshairs
11. Mincemeat
12. Vats of Urine
13. Space Ho's
14. Bada Bing


Let's get things going with some current reviews in this section...

Danger Doom to me is pretty fucking ill - the concept is sick, I'm loving the incorporation of the cartoons even though I'm not familiar with any of the shows. Doom has the most unique vocabulary of any emcee out there, period. His shit to me never gets old because you never know what the hell is going to come out his mouth next. He has a lot of fun with his verses and is one of the rare emcees who maintains a persona - to the point where I have no idea what he would be like if I met him and had a conversation with him.

Anyway, Doom comes correct on this album as usual and Danger Mouse's beats are ill - the ones on this album really pound... there aren't really any weak beats on here.

So as far as beats and lyrics, this is really solid. One detractor is the amount of skits present. Like I said I like the cartoon references and everything but at times it feels like it takes away from the album's continuity, especially if you're listening to the album a few times in succession.

I'll give this an 8. Peace.

I thought the production could have been better.

People are fucking sleeping, and need to open their eyes, it's a personal classic for me... so I'd give it a 10, but even tho each track is ill, some tracks + beats for that matter don't quite fit with the concept of the LP. It's still a cold 9, and will be recognised as a classic in the future, mark my words. ONE

Typically great lyrics from Doom and Danger's beats are all great (don't really see how they could be criticised that much, but whatever). The best beats on here are Sofa King and Crosshairs, the rest of the beats are just the perfect compliment to Doom's rhymes and the cartoon theme. Fave songs: Sofa King, The Mask, Old School, Space Ho's.

9/10

Very nice album, that's fo show but it's far away from classic. Doom kills on it.

8/10

7. Dooms lyrics are the same as always, but the first half of the album is way better than the second half. Production wasn't what I was hoping. It's hard for Danger to live up to The Grey Album. I'm surprised some of ya'll are saying this is a "classic"! Pleez...

Shits dope!

I wanna give it a 8, but gave it a 7.
I like it now, but I think I will gave it a seven down the long run.

On the Doom side:
I give 'Mm.. Food' and 'Madvillainy' a solid 8.
'Operation: Doomsday' and The first 'Viktor Vaughn' albums a 9! 'VV2' gets a 7. Dooms has yeat to make a ten IMHO...

Danger Mouse:
I give the Grey Album a 8.5! and Demon Days a Solid 7!


...I'm feeling The mask, Benzie Box, ATHF, No Names(U kno, 'black Debbie'lolz), Crosshairs, Bada Bing!... damn the whole thing is tight!..
