Production's 10 for me but lyrically it isn't as good in my opinion so I gotta give it a 9.

Just fantastic album. El-P production at his peak, along with Fantastic Damage that is almost a sequal to this.

And the lyrics from vast aire are on another level. 10 from me.

We need another album like this el-p/ox. The production fits the benefit on this whole album; the battle for asguard is an 11/10 every lyricist and of course the percusion isnt short. scream pheonix,painkillers always hits;ridiculoid mmm tight... these cats (ox & producto) need to shit or get off the toilet son

It is very abstract hip hop. Some people compare it to 93 wu, I guess because it does sound gutter but don't expect any kung fu samples. They got a lot of metaphors and Vast Aire has a very laid back flow but still its a great album, you gotta listen to it more than once to appreciate it, just loop it on random in the background and its tight. El-P's beats have a lot of depth and richness to it, definitely sounds like some basement type stuff.

I liked raspberry fields, Straight off the DIC, Ridiculoid(nice twist on the salt and peppa chorus!), ox out of the cage, painkillers, real earth, battle for asgard(makes you want to fight someone), pigeon, and some of the others. For the most part the LP is solid but again you have to listen to it more than once to appreciate it. Its beatiful. It was released in 2003 I believe.

BTW noone mentioned this hear yet, but Cannibal OX recently inked a deal with Def JUX for another LP(or LPs) for 2006 with EL-P doing ALL the production once again! It will come out after EL-P finishes his sophmore album.
