From antaiospiano 09/03/2018 07:21
Honestly, my only issue with this album is that it isn’t wild enough. The beats could be a lot more slippery. After you’ve heard Aphex Twin’s “Come To Daddy” or M.I.A.’s “STEPPIN UP”, anything on here sounds like a lullaby. But honestly, it doesn’t even beat (proto-)punk like The Beatles’ “Helter Skelter” and The Stooges’ “Search and Destroy” in messiness. I’m sitting here shouting at the album: “come on, blow my mind, do it”, but they won’t.
What is remarkable about this album is how MC Ride’s rapping is as rhythmically unsettling as the beats, and that’s something I don’t think I’ve ever heard.

The fact that M.I.A.’s Maya was overlooked and this wasn’t is either a proof of sexism or a hate towards her political views, or it is proof that music critics are complete idiots and will never recognize a masterpiece when it’s shoved up their noses after which they give the wrong people credit. Oh well... wouldn’t be the first time.

At its best the money store is a monstrous rampage through the dark web, unfortunately it often gets swallowed up in its own abrasiveness. wonderfully original however.

I had this rated this 35! Ha. My view of what rap music should be like is slowly evolving! This would be a favourite if I was 15. That's not a derogatory comment, this is very good. In your face.

Instantly loved this album when I heard it. The hard drums and synths all start to fight in great symmetry when added to MC Rides vocals. It was unlike anything I ever had heard before and still is today.

It was the first thing i had ever heard from them. I loved it immediately. At 18, this was the raw energy i was looking for in hip hop. I wouldnt even be such a fan of the genre if it hadnt been for this album and Earl Sweatshirt. Plus it introduced me to Hella.

I can't say I've heard anything like this and I'm glad it exists. It's experimental hip hop with some punk influence and with lots of rich thick electronic sounds and often siren sounds and random pitches doing weird sweeping effects in the place of chords. As someone who looks for harmony and melody (yes even in hip hop if you can even classify this as hip hop) it's hard for me to really get into this music as "best of the decade" like the infamous anthony fantano claims.

The rapping is also very skittish and unconventional. There's some clear Killer Mike influence, in the beats, production style, and rapping cadence.

I enjoy the rhythms and the creativity and there is certainly some cool stuff going on with the production. That said it's not really something I enjoy as much as some seem to that would make me give it a higher rating. I appreciate it in the same way I appreciate something like Captain Beefheart - I admire that they did what they did and recognize that it is pretty remarkable, even if it's not really my thing. It's definitely worth a listen or two that's for sure.

I somehow like this album and I don't know why. This is certainly a banger album.
