its wicked, but over rated. as a whole album i thought it was real good, no real standout track particularly.

8.5/10 or 9/10.

At one point I tried to convince myself that this album was better than it is, but in the end I just really don't much care for Kool Keith. 'Blue Flowers' is awesome, 'Halfsharkalligatorhalfman' is really good, and there are a few other pretty good songs, but as a whole I just don't think this album is all that great. It's creative. I appreciate its originality and relevance in hip hop, but I just don't really think it's all that good. There's a lot of really shitty hooks on it too. I think the most I could give it would be about 7/10.

keith's definitely in my top 20 mcs, maybe even top 10, but i absolutely understand why a lot of people can't get into him. he's like the ornette coleman of hiphop. that being said, i dare you to front on ultramagnetic mc's critical beatdown lp. in ego trip's book of rap lists they rate keith higher than 2pac.

No, when Kool Keith is on point he tears a hole in every rapper. That includes fucking Tupac. Listen to Critical Beatdown.
