Gothic rap composed of agonizing loops, oppressive rhymes
and a flow as monotonous as spectacular. Madvillainy is a marvel of minimalism and darkness. The best 2000's album with Kid A.

Madvillainy is the result of the collaboration between rapper MF DOOM and beatmaker Madlib. First of all, MF DOOM is one of my favorite rappers: he is a major figure in underground rap and I like the mystery hovering around him. This album is the best rap album of the 2000s and one of the best rap albums of all time. Since "2001" by Dr. Dre released in 1999, rap artists are looking for catchy choruses and entangling melodies: this is the beginning of mainstream rap (with rappers such as 50 Cent or Eminem). Madvillainy is an album against the current, a UFO of the Rap game of the time. On this record, the beats are pretty minimalist and are not really melodious or catchy. Otis Jackson (aka Madlib) composed these prod with simplistic tools but returns to the very essence of hip-hop thanks to this simplicity. This album is just awesome and the myth that revolves around is really captivating.

10/10

Best track: "All Caps"

Mad quirky. You can't get over the heat DOOM brings, the slanted, staggering, ragged delivery, disjointed but so delicious in their intricate rhythms and rhymes. Again, another classic that ought to be tried simply for its significance in hip-hop if nothing else (side note, the All Caps music video is incredible, watch it!). It is a bit tricky to approach in fairness, DOOM is pretty esoteric. There's massive variation in the production tunes and it's almost disappointing sometimes to hear these incredible instrumentals and think how good they'd be to have some killer verses over them. Quite honestly, I don't know what any of the tracks mean, but the raw energy just keeps you hooked and this is easily DOOM at his creative peak.
