holy shit this is incredible. @weedygonsalez said it perfect with that white album reference. its so eclectic and wide-ranging, yet at the very same time one of the most cohesive rap albums ive heard, which is even harder to do when you have 20+ tracks. threw it up on my chart as the 12th greatest rap album of all time, damn, the story-telling and the soul and even the bumpin tracks are just wow

ghostface killah (of wu-tang clan fame) announces his arrival on "fishscale" from "shakey dog" on, with its triumphant synth-horns opening the way for ghost to spit "Fasten your seat belts, I'm a take y'all on some real shit". I'm not much into rap and i've wondered, when i am into a rap album, exactly why is it? With Ghostface i think it's the tough-as-a-barking-pitbull lyrics and samples and accompanying bravado. He also brings some hilarious ideas like on "kilo" and "the champ". "kilo" has some background homies telling you "a kilo is a thousand grams, easy to remember". it's a pro-drug, pro-dealin' song served levity by the female vox interspersed throughout the song as raekwon tells you "You know your ammo better be heavy 'cause soon kids is coming in camo / Protect your land daddy, I'm an announcer / you get caught with an ounce and its over / matter 'fact they takin you down, son". "The champ" starts off with a Rocky sample setting up ghostface for a comeback saying he hasn't "been hungry since supreme clientele" bringing the pre-boxing party atmosphere while trying to fortify his rep: "Revenge is my arts is crafty darts / While y'all stuck on Laffy Taffy / Wonderin' how y'all niggaz get past me / I been doin this before Nas dropped the Nasty". I find the "bad mouth kid (skit)" pretty funny. "whip you with a strap" is old-school parenting, and "back like that" is new-school r&b inflected featuring ne-yo. i like the synth sound in "jellyfish" ("she must be a special ladieeeeeeeeeeee").

I won't say that this is the White Album of hip-hop, because the White Album is actually the Fishscale of rock.
