"Madvillainy" is an album composed of scattershot ideas, rhythms and textures that all come together to create a cohesive masterpiece of a collage filled with humour, intellect and supreme artistry. With no weak links and awesome segues/instrumentals to create a seamless piece of art, this record rises above any genre trappings and morphs into one of the finest, most innovative and most influential albums of the 2000s.

"Spot hot tracks like spot a pair of fat asses
Shots of the scotch from out of square shot glasses
And he won't stop 'til he got the masses
And show 'em what they know not through flows of hot molasses"

The beats are incredible, the flow and lyricism flawless. Madlib and Doom serve up something as exquisitely tasty as it is easily digestible. There aren't really any skits, a lot of the tracks stop around 2 minutes and there is plenty of variety for such a compact, concentrated album.

From DJTommy 07/17/2017 00:13
One of the best albums of all time, Madvillainy shows the best of both worlds. It has some of the best producing and rapping I've ever heard. Madlib makes some strange and brilliant beats and MF DOOM (remember all caps when you spell the man's name) has the best flow and rhyming of any rapper I'm aware of. And together they're a perfect duo. It's not a very deep and serious album. DOOM's lyrics are often abstract and meaningless and often pretty damn clever and funny. The songs are brief (about 1 or 2 minutes each) and (as far as I can rembember) none of them have hooks, giving a bit of an abstract feel. It's also got a very fun ongoing theme of them as a supervillain group (seemingly borrowed from DOOM's solo projects). A masterpiece that everyone and their mom has to hear!

Finally got around to listening to this and WOW for 2004 this is really great!

I can see how it was very ahead of it's time as artists like RTJ, FlyLo, and even Kendrick's various producers take from this. I expect my score to be going nowhere but up on repeat listens. A lot here to unpack.

I kind of view this album as one giant piece since most of the tracks are very short. They pretty much flow each other well and it's managed to keep me engaged all the way. MF Doom is amazing!

DOOM is a dissonant, deadpan supervillain rapper, who's abrasive style with with his humor and superhuman rhyming power make for a deadly combination when paired with Madlib's cloudy soothing beats.

I think its fair to say that this album is better to listen to in it entirety. Even though the songs can sometimes seem a bit disjointed, they work together really well.
