Would be nice to see more peoples thoughts and more discussion on here. I'm gonna start doing these threads if i notice something significant not being discussed. What's everybody's thoughts on the album?
I hoped for more Beatnuts-esque production on this. I've never been a big Kool Keith fan, his stuff (outside of Ultra-Mag) was always a bit too eccentric for my taste but every now and then he drops some s**t that I like. I thought I was gonna like this one cause I love Psycho Les' production but this didn't really grab me.
I was hyped when i heard that crazy "zero f**ks" beat when it dropped a few months back and then the next 2 singles/leaks were just ok. As far as the album i was surprised by les' production style with the synths, bit of trap influence on a couple, drum programming style etc. Surprised and let down by the lack of rawness in his beats. lack of drum breaks and ill, dusty samples etc. Nothing like his nice beats on dank god 1 from a couple years back. I know Les uses synths sometimes but this is a new style for him with most of the albums beats sounding nothing like what most love beatnut producer for.
Also was let down to hear keith back in his lazy "i dont need to try" awkward style most of the time after he came back in full form for Moosebumps.
I was excited about this thinking "finally he will have a non-weird production". But it's just an OK album in my opinion. Keith is a weird character and he's getting more weird as time passes. It doesn't matter which producer he use... he will keep being weird
