5.0 out of 5 stars DJXP4 March 22, 2010
By Exxxxx
Format:Audio CD
Def Jux really went out with a bang with this release, and the fact it's so good only adds to the disappointment of seeing the label go on "hiatus". I've noticed this has been one of the most slept on and least mentioned releases of theirs which is a real shame because it's definitely one of their stronger efforts in the last few years. There's a couple of tracks that miss the mark but all in all this is a solid compilation album, I'll break it down track by track:

1.Reports of a Possible Kidnapping - The Weathermen *****

This cut has such a spaced out grimy beat that it makes the track alone, but Aesop, El-P and Cage smash it properly leaving it one of the standouts of the album.

2.When You're Going Down - Camu Tao ***

Camu Tao (RIP) singing and rapping in a tin can over what sounds to me like a very rough cut on an unfinished beat. It's an interesting almost new wave sounding track that I can sort of see where it was going, but just didn't sound finished to me. It's catchy though, and if you can get around the incomplete feeling it will likely grow on you.

3.Look Alive - Despot *****

One of, if not the best tracks on the whole album. Ratatat came through with a neck breaking beat and Despot absolutely killed it. Lots of clever lines here, some people may not feel his voice, but I think this kid is nice.

4.Worm In Her Vein - Cage *****

Aesop Rock did this beat and it's one of the coolest beats of his I've personally heard. The beat is what makes this one a 5 star track, and although I'm not the biggest Cage fan I liked his verses on this cut. I'm not entirely sure who the song is about, but it's typical "new" Cage material.

4.0 out of 5 stars a lot to swallow March 10, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm not into everything here, but as comps go this has no songs I feel I need to skip. I'm mainly really into Yak Balls Gas Galaxy, and the Camu Tao track that starts things off. These are really infectious with original textures involved. Overall this is a really good song set though, and I expect to go through phases of being hooked on the other songs too. Go ahead and get this.
