One of the most important hip hop releases of the 2000s. Simply one of hip hop's finest releases.

MF Doom fans may disagree, but this is independent hip-hop at its finest. El-P's production is second to none, Vast Aire provides a look into NY that it is both fantastical and gritty, and Vordul Mega's smooth flow rides these beats perfectly

A lot of the songs go on for too long and it loses steam in the final third, but the fact of the matter is that no other hip-hop album sounds like this. There are traces of its sound on EL-P's "Fantastic Damage" but "The Cold Vein"'s dreamy, cosmic, booming assault stands apart from pretty much everything else.
