after first listen i really like how this album was produced. a perfect soundscape for holocaust's rhymes. unfortunately holocaust wasnt as impressive lyrically as on nightmares and smuggling booze.

on first listen i'll give it 7/10. production-wise this is leagues better then his first two but im still dissapointed cuz my main focus when dealing with holocaust/warcloud is his lyrics and he didnt have it on here.

i'll give this some more plays and see if my view differs.

I agree with WADE the production is good but Holocausts lyrics faulter...He doesn't even rhyme WTF? and he still sounds strange his voice has changed since when he first took the scene...ultimately his flow ruins this album IMO

well i've also being listening to the whole album and i ahev to say that the production is on point tight beats and all that. So with the product i also don't have a problem. When it comes to the lyrics and flow i think holocaust doesn't do himself any justice at all, he does so well on some tracks and then not so good on other. But on the whole it's a very dope album.
My favourites are tracks 1 to 10 and 15.
tracks 11 to 14 don't really hit me that hard

This album has me mesmorized. I listen to it again today while at work.

After reading the undead comment above... Holocaust feels there are some people alive who are like the walking dead (85%). So those that are walking alive, are "undead". They are immune to the lies of the world, or "sleep spells".

We should take one song each and transcribe it. I need to see the lyrics of these songs.

i think the line may be holocaust making a random comment related to RPG games.

when you are going up against undead enemies using sleep spells is inaffective, but as damo said, you can damage or kill them with a cure spell.

I'm listening to this album right now. Beats are clearly out of this world, magnificent... Warcloud is a great lyricist, but his flow is sadly kinda weak. I wish Killah Priest and Hell Razah would spit over these siiick beats

I am biased since I am a huge Holocaust fan, but I will say that this album is a lot better than the new Meth, Masta Killa, or INS albums. His flow is not nearly as good as on his Warcloud albums, but he's still one of the most talented MC's I've ever heard. I thought BSBD's beats were ok, but I think the old beats by Skarekrow and Item# were better suited to his style. Everyone should at least check this out. It's not gangsta, street rhymes, but it is entertaining.

Well I have made up my mind, any taking the risk of getting flamed I gotta vote this one a 'Classic'. Since it's an option for a new album I assume it's a measurement of how good you think the album is. I don't know what it is, I just cant stop listening to this album, it spins atleast once a day, from start to finish.

I'm having a hard time deciding wether Holocaust or Vatican Mixtape 2 is the best hip-hop release of 2006 to this date.

This my friends, is an amazing album by an amazing performer with dope production. Agree or go get a fucken haircut.
