Some of the best instrumental hip-hop beats I've ever heard accompanied by some serious lyrical talent and impeccable delivery. Throw in some crazy abstract ideas here and there and you've got yourself the BEAST that this album is as a whole.

And how the hell is this only 4th best album of 2004? Surely better than all of top 3...

This album is one of the most consistent hip-hop projects ever made. Mad lib’s production is flawless and MF DOOM’s lyricism is absolutely phenomenal. My favorite hip-hop album. Honestly, my favorite album - period. Listen to this if you haven’t already, and if you’ve already listened to it - listen to it again.

What a stellar rap/hip-hop album. So refreshing when so much of the modern stuff is complete garbage.

"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.
