Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The problem with being recognized as a creative genius is that you've got to live up to it 24/7. Kool Keith was given such a mantle upon the release of the Dr. Octagonecologist album, and it's not something he seems happy about: on the first track of First Come, First Served, he--as Dr. Dooom--kills Octagon. It's the perfect move for Keith, and it sets the tone for the album, which is a mix of humorous tracks ("Neighbors Next Door," which asks you to imagine having Keith and Jacky Jasper living in the next apartment, and "You Live at Home with Your Mom") and songs on which Keith lays down the law ("No Chorus" and "Leave Me Alone"). Few MCs could hope to match Keith, but here--rapping over knocked-off Octagon grooves (produced with Kutmaster Kurt, they're still more innovative than most) and settling lots of personal scores--he sounds like he's just trying to get a bunch of ideas out of his head as quickly as possible. Still, there's an amazing EP's worth of material here, but it's spread over a full album. Minus the filler, Dooom might just be Octagon's better. --Randy Silver

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Doom, prepare for the boom! October 17, 2006
By Pablo
Format:Audio CD
While that quote may've come from the intro to the Wu's "Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuthin' Ta F Wit'," it's the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Dr. Dooom. Hands down, it's become clear if a rapper was influenced by the arch-nemesis of the superhero group, The Fantastic Four, then that rapper is most likely going to be ill. RZA, MF DOOM, and Dr. Dooom alike have all made numerous mentions to Viktor Von Doom, and all three are avante-garde lyricists, and clearly three of the illest in the game. They're also all mad scientists like the character that inspired them, but at the same time, while RZA and MF DOOM show glimpses of insanity, they appear completely sane in comparison to Kool Keith, and especially his Dr. Dooom alias.

We all know Keith is the definition of dope; at the same time, the Kool Kat's fanbase has come to expect one of two extremes when he releases an album; at best, he'll give us an absolute classic, and at worst, he'll drop some of the most unredeemable crap put on wax. Thankfully for both Keith, and his fanbase, this album is the former. Better than Dr. Octagon? All depends on your personal preference. Just as good? I ensure you, it is. As I said, it all depends where your tastes lie; if you're into alternative hip-hop with spaceage themes, Dr. Octagon's for you, and if you're into alternative hip-hop, that fits the horrorcore sub-genre like a glove, then Dr. Dooom is your poison.

I love both albums equally; I'd rather not choose between the two. Even though I'm a bigger fan of horror flicks than I am science-fiction, both resulted in classic albums of major proportions, making weaker emcees cower in fear. On Dr. Octagon, Keith was born on Jupiter; on FCFS, Keith is the man of the hour watching girls taking showers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unconditional Brilliance May 30, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Just when you thought Kool Keith had already created the perfect hip-hop album in Dr. Octagon, he did the unthinkable. Enter Dr. Dooom, First Come First Served.
Unfortunately, every beginning must have an ending. The album begins with an unexpected bombshell of Dr. Dooom inserting a slug or two into his triumphant Dr. Octagon persona, slaying him. However, the loss of Dr. Octagon unleashes an even more promising character. Dr. Dooom isn't your typical emcee. In fact, there's no one in comparison. He's gritty, he's gutter, and if you're an emcee, he's your worst nightmare.
It's damn near impossible to give this album the admiration it surely deserves. The term "classic" would be an understatement for First Come First Served. In all honestly, no word in the English language can do this album justice. Lyrically, Kool Keith takes his music to an entirely new level, while Kutmaster Kurt proves he's one of the most underrated instrumentalist in the music industry.
From the emcee shattering No Chorus, to the space-funked Baldheaded Girl, Kool Keith drops nothing less than sheer astonishment with each and every line from his arsenal of lyrics. I Run Rap further proves why Keith has been the best emcee since day 1. The sinister sounds from Apartment 223 and Neighbors Next Door give you more of a "street" Keith, while lackadaisical and amusing Keith can be found on tracks such as Welfare Love and Mental Case. The album itself is a mixture of a little bit of everything. With Keith, you can be sure to get something new with each and every album, and with Dr. Dooom's First Come First Served, he surely doesn't disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 5 Star Hip-Hop "B Movie" October 3, 2006
By 77Jim
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My favorite Kool Keith project to date; the postitive reviews posted here speak with accuracy for those in any doubt.

If "Dr.Octagon" was an X rated horror movie... then "Dooom" is the B-Movie equivalent playing around the block on the seedier side of town with the wild low budget Kung Fu and X-ploitation flicks. In fact I think fans of Slasher flicks, Troma movies and Schlock culture in general would genuinely get a kick out of this album even if they aren't crazy about the "hip-hop" genre. It's almost the same sub-cultural appeal. The humor here is twisted out of this world and it's also a little eerie, even for those who think they've heard it all. Countless other rappers sound marble mouthed, muddy and creatively dead compared with Kool Keith's diction and creative might. Keith has an amazing entertaining ability to randomize the most bizzarre, unusual assortment of crisp vocabulary... all with the meticulous touch of a lense grinder. Household cleaning products, breakfast foods, juvenile toilet obsessions and Michael jackson references all whirl with deadpan wit that borderlines on sounding pure evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Farewell Jupiter, welcome to the gutter. June 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD
With the miraculous success of the Dr. Octagonecologyst project, you'd initially scratch your head and question Kool Keith's scandalous assassination of his paramount character, Dr. Octagon. However, the delivery of the dark and malignant Dr. Dooom, proves Kool Keith is equipped with a bag full of goodies begging to be unleashed.
On Dr. Octagon, the stupefying production from Dan the Automator was credited as equally as Kool Keith's very own stroke of genius on the microphone, but on Dr. Dooom's First Come First Served, Kool Keith's lyrical brilliance is the definite underline. Not to discredit Kutmaster Kurt, in fact, Kutmaster Kurt's best work is actually found on First Come First Served, on classics such as I Run Rap, Apartment 223, Welfare Love, and others. Kurt does his part, believe that, it's just Keith's odd terminology and mind-tingling wordplay that blow this album out of the water. Dr. Dooom's lyrical format, coincides with his flow and concepts perfectly. Tracks such as I Run Rap and Dr. Dooom is in the Room, are just as great lyrically, as any track that can be found on all-time hip-hop classics such as Nas' Illmatic or BDP's By All Means Necessary, just to name a few.
Keith brings along a couple guest allowing each of them (Jacky Jasper & Motion Man) to shine on a track or two, making a great addition to the album.
The majority of the album revolves within a dark and foul setting, with roach infested apartments, malodorous sewers, and the gritty life of the gutter beyond your average ghetto. However, the entire album isn't about mangled body parts in Hefty bags, there's a dash of humor here and there, keeping the listener rolling on the floor, with comedy that only Kool Keith himself could provide.
All in all, Kool Keith accomplished the impossible with Dr. Dooom's First Come First Served, in the fact he created an even more superb album than the untouchable Dr. Octagon. Believe it, or not.
