Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Looking for some weird ass rap that’s not going to be what you expect it to be. It’s really friggin’ original.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

Iconic. It’s probably in my top 10 album covers of all time. Love me some Doom folks.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Absolutely, just for All Caps alone.

Final Thoughts:

This is one of my reviews where my formula really worked against me, the pure amount of instrumentals and interludes made it really work against it. At the end of the day I love Doom, and his rap is on point every time he picks up the mic on the album, I guess I just wish he’d do it more.
