After hearing about the whole 'Madvilliany 2' mess I figured ol' DOOM might disappear on us, far from it, in fact DOOM is back with more intelligent, clever lyrics, dope beats and a rather cohesive album. DOOM's flow is much tighter this time around, ensuring his place amongst those rare rappers that can seamlessly blend a poppy flow with an underground variant, still weaving pop icon references, comic books, video games, awesome metaphors and a rugged vibe into his lyrical style. Yet he also retained a socially conscious element to his visions, blended with the myriad of obscure cartoon samples and sound effects. The beats feature a more solid production, and are some of DOOM's best yet.
Whether it be calling out the power hungry of the world or bellowing out cypher-like braggadocio rants, DOOM has the microphone in control. DOOM never fails to impress me; his lyrical flow is unique and unmatched, his beats original and flavorful. 'Born Like This' is easily a top contender for best Hip Hop album of 2009.
"Absolutely" is such a sick, soulful laid back beat & DOOM relaxes his flow a bit for it "Absolute power corrupts absolutely, now you have your orders, do your duty". But as sick as that track is, I still find it very hard to skip straight to it whenever I put the CD in because the album plays smoothly from start to finish without skipping a single track. No fillers here ladies & gentlemen.

Five Favorite Tracks:
Anyone with any previous knowledge of Doom should enjoy this album, the beats sound cleaner to me but they still have that vibe that Doom albums have. Gazzillion Ear is one of the best Doom tracks I've ever heard, mostly because of the J Dilla production.
I've always enjoyed the short bursts of songs, the 2 minute and under raps that Doom always kills over such creative beats. This album has a good selection of those like Ball Skin, Microwave and Lightworks. I gotta give props to Empress Starhh for making Still Dope one of the best tracks on the whole CD. She raps non stop over a great beat. My jaw was on the floor after the first time I heard it.
If you dig Doom or underground hip hop in general then this is a great album to add to your collection. Like I said, it isn't the best album Doom's ever done but it ranks comfortably in the Doom annuals as a solid record with some shinning moments. It's hard to find a Doom album without some dope beats and rhymes, that what makes him Doom.

This guy invented hip hop. Can't beat DOOM on his beats, content, or rhymes. If you hate on his stuff you don't know what's up.Published on February 22, 2010 by Primo Lasana

Operation: Doomsday if you don't have that already. Classic.
If you'e a Doom fan and alrady have that, I just picked up the new Brother Ali EP+DVD called "The Truth is Here." Highly recommend - Ali seems to get better with every record he makes.
