Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The follow-up to the X-Ecutioners' revolutionary debut is well worth the five-year wait. It's bigger, badder, and even more technically proficient than its predecessor, weighing in at 20 tracks constructed from scratches, skits, beat juggles, flares and fades, cuts, pitch plays, studio trickery, and live drums and guitar (played by the DJs). MC performances come courtesy of M.O.P, Kool G Rap, Large Professor, and Pharoahe Monch, and there are DJ collabs with Premier, Dan the Automator, the Beat Junkies, and Triple Threat, as well as an unlikely but successful pairing with Mike Shinoda and Mr. Hahn of Linkin Park fame. It's a quality piece of work, with old- and new-school references liberally scattered throughout (check the updates of Marley Marl's "Marley Scratch," Whiz Kid's "Play That Beat Mr. DJ," and Tom Tom Club's "Genius of Love"). A must. --Paul Sullivan

The X-ecutioners skills on the 1 and 2's are without a doubt superior!!

It is definitely a CD worth listening to if you love hip-hop and great hip hop DJs like Mix Master Mike or the DJ Shadow.

The M.O.P. and Linkin Park collaborations are both heavy metal and rap hybrids that work well.

It isn't easy being a team of battle DJ's. Working all day to perfect sophisticated scratch routines, travelling to competitions, then winning a bunch of slipmatts for all of your trouble. The X-ecutioners have paid their dues, with DMC battle titles and one independeant album under their belts, this major label debut is thier attempt at taking over the rap game. No easy task fo 4 guys that just scratch records.
DJ albums have never been succesfull. While underground heads easily recognize deck skills, an average hip-hop fan will not enjoy listening to just scratching for an hour. Here, the X-ecutioners enlist a small army of collaborators, big and small. The results are varied.
The M.O.P. and Linkin Park collaborations are both heavy metal and rap hybrids that work well. Thug-rap favorites Big Pun and Kool G Rap bring the noise on "Dramacide". The best track is the possie cut "Y'all Know the Name", with Xzibit and others giving the guys behind the wheels some credit. Other songs fall flat. Biz Markie nearly ruins the remake of Tom Tom Club's "Genius of Love",the remake of "Marley Marl Scratch" has a lot of static, and the skits are not funny at all.
The X-ecutioners invite some other dj's along for the ride as well. The Triple Threat Dj's remix the intro from Vinroc's '99 mixtape "Reconstruction",(the first reunion of Rob Swift and Shortkut since that Gap commercial),and The Bumrush Brothers show up as well. This album lacks focus, only half of the track can be listened to repeatedly. The production, from the X-ecutioners, Dj Premier, and Large Proffessor, is quality. Its a good rap album put out by dj's, don't expect everyone to get it.

This album is great! It is definitely a CD worth listening to if you love hip-hop and great hip hop DJs like Mix Master Mike or the DJ Shadow. Now, I am not much into the hip hop DJ scene at all, but this CD certainly made my head turn. The rap/rock songs on here(the most obvious example being 'It's Going Down' with Mr. Hahn and Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park) work really well...This cd does have a mostly hip hop/rap vibe to it though, with heavy break beats, song cuts and scratches. Even a strange little ditty with Biz Markie works quite well.(With Biz Markie's trademark comedic style of rapping).
So if you want something to listen to while working the weights, grinding the skate park, or any kind of high energy work, pop this CD in and it will get you hyped up...because these workers of the wheels of steel deliver a solid, high energy cd...

Format: Audio CD
to tell you the truth, the only reason why I bought this CD was because I'm a big Linkin Park fan and I loved the "It's Goin Down" track and I wasn't expecting this to be that good of a CD, but boy was I wrong! I'm not really into hip-hop and rap (I like rock, but some rap is okay) but this CD really was very very good. The only other DJ CD I have is Freestylers "We Rock Hard" which I don't know if its even a DJ CD but it sure sounded like it, and I really loved that CD! anyway, I really recommend this CD to everyone who likes underground hip-hop/rap, and to anyone who actually enjoyed Linkin Park's my opinion kick [behind] "Reanimation" because "Built From Scratch" kind of sounds like some of the rap remixes! Get this album only if you like underground rap!

Upon my initial listen I really didn't know what to expect from this album. I had never heard of the X-ecutioners until I saw there video for the song "It's going down". The song was primarily rock driven and featured members of the group Linkin Park. The scratching in that song was unbelievable which prompted me to buy the album. The opening intro just blew me away. The way 4 d.j.'s could combine their separate styles on one album and have it not sound like a jumbled mess was incredible to me. This X-ecutioners album epitomizes the true creativity of hip hop in its purest form. The track production is tight and coincides perfectly with the groups cuts and mixes. There are a few guest m.c. appearances which do the album justice(except for the Biz Markie track)but the highlights of this album is when the d.j.'s let loose on a track. It is truly a beautiful thing. Give love to the d.j. or d.j.'s in this case and pick this one up. You will not regret it.

this is a breath of fresh air for mainstream hip hop, this is a superior album in all aspects, my only beef with it is that the skits should have been removed, they are useless and i know everyone will skip them. If this album was a continuous dj mix, scratching and all, then this would be flawless. Pick up the dirtchamber sessions by dj liam howlett for a flawless unique hip hop dj mix. Buy this album, skip the skits, and buy "dirtchamber sessions"

Man, I remember back in the early 90's listening to these kats when they were called the X-Men in New York city underground radio stations. Showcasing their turntable skills which were damn near amazing!!! It was great to hear the art of DJing hasn't been lost and and it also great to hear the art of Djing is still alive and well on this new LP !!! This LP is what the mainstream Hip-Hop listeners need to hear, on the real!!! A part of what real hip-hip is all about. Production is top notch, the artists they have ranging from Pharoahe Monch, Large Professor good to hear him), DJ Premier, M.O.P. Everlast, Biz Markie, and even rockers Linkin Park and 80's Talking Heads splinter group, Tom Tom Club. The X-ecutioners skills on the 1 and 2's are without a doubt superior!! They are one of the best group DJ's in the world! If you love DJing, and hearing (in mainstream terms)a lost art form, with great emceeing. This is the LP for you..I even love the LP cover...Emulating the classic Public Enemy Yo, Bumrush the Show album cover.
