Overall, I think this album is a great listen and worth the buy.
Amir Rahimi
Great production, excellent guest appearance, grisly lyrics and a delightful touch of the macabre combined creates yet another unique album by Tech N9ne.
Eloquent Assassin
Tech has done it again, with an album complete with sick beats and even sicker lyrics.

If you let it. It is very dark which is good if you like it, similar to relapse but in this album there's a little something for everyone. Unlike relapse from Eminem, in this one there is restraint. I don't hate relapse. Anyway, as I was saying in K.O.D. Tech sometimes comes close to crossing those boundaries in (the second part of the album) "Madness" but has a comical way about it and even considering the crazy lyrics, stays sane.

The album is divided into three parts:
-Anger (5 Stars)
-Madness (5 Stars)
-The Hole (4.5 Stars)

-Anger is about just letting the rage out, anthems, hard bass, fighting, shooting whatever. His anger just comes out furiously. Everyone goes in lyrically.
It's about letting the demons out, thus the track Demons w/ Three Six Mafia the ex kings of horrorcore.

-Madness is just crazy, the title serves it very well. In this part he talks about all kinds of crazy stuff & makes it sound funny, he is truly original in his songs. In the song "In The Trunk", he talks about throwing a clueless girl in his trunk so that she can learn to enjoy his music while it's banging in her ears, funny.

-The Hole is the darkest part of the album. In Shadows On The Road, he talks about spirits. Killing You is a very sad dark view of a relationship and the song Low can not get any lower. He then tries to bring the mood back up with Leave Me Alone which sounds very commercial but takes you right back down with "King Of Darkness" (his best) and ends the album marvelously with The Martini, a great story-telling.

With this album Tech N9ne shows that he is truly the King Of Darkness, I could actually see a religion being formed from this, impressive.

Tech N9ne is easily the most creative and versatile rapper in the industry today. He owns his own label so he doesn't let the so called "industry" affect the content of his music, which is the only way the world could really see how talented this man really is. His style is unlike any other rap artist you have ever heard. And you are truly missing out some beautiful music if you have not heard of him.

K.O.D. is a deep album that touchs on the dark side of Tech. It starts with the powerful "Show Me a God," which covers religion and the health of his mother that is a great start to this album. The next 3 songs "Deomons," "Blackened The Sun," and "Strange Music Box" are all very dark highlights of the album with a verse from Brotha Lynch Hung that steals the show. However, like all greats these 3 are hard to follow, and the whole middle of the album (the madness section)suffers greatly, with the exception of "Hunterish." "Pinnocchio" is a song that seems like Tech was trying WAY too hard to be dark with an awkward voice and the topic of cannibalism. King Gordy just goes over the top on "Horns", "It Was An Accident" just sounds lazy, and "Check Your Temperature" is just boring. The third section "The Hole" starts to pick back up. "Low" possibly the climax of the cd is deep and heart felt. "Killing You" is rock inspired banger that doesn't get old and the title track "K.O.D." is a lyrical masterpiece with a very scary beat.

Overall this album is worth a listen. If you are a fan of radio hip/hop such as Kanye West, Lil Wayne, or Gucci Mane you will find that Tech N9ne is much more personal and imaginitive in his music and his flow and speed is unmatched by anyone who has ever put their lips to a microphone. However, this is far from Tech N9ne's best album, see Everready (The Religion) and Absolute Power for that, it is one of the best albums put out in 2009.

I am rating this a four right now because I still think Killer topped this one ... but the all time greatest albums take a month or so to really seep in. Yea as one reviewer mentioned Killer was the best I think I heard from Tech though many seem to not like it as much as Sickology or early releases.

I would definitely agree Tech keeps growing with every album. As for the this being a mainstream album ... I guess I don't listen to mainstream music but if this is what mainstream hip hop/rap is sounding like these days ... maybe I need to. This is by FAR the least mainstream album Tech has ever done in my opinion, so I don't understand a previous reviewer saying the contrary. I feel more than any other album Tech made this strictly for himself first and foremost and didn't really care as much what anyone else thought ... which is not like him because I think he is someone who cares deeply about what his fans want to hear and see. I can understand some fans not understanding/liking this album as much ... But like N9ne says he's never desired fame ... he's famous because he's a f*%! up, and we desire pain.
It is almost like a clearing of ones mind of all the inner battles. One of the darkest albums I have listened to in a while ... but not dark just to be dark ... dark with a purpose. I am proud of Tech and it sounds like he is getting some things worked out with himself. I hope so and hope he continues to grow and expand his messages even more to his fans. The time for gang bang raps and being sick just to be sick is over and played out. Like Techs music evolving, so have a lot of his fans. Tech mentioned he has sobered up in the past 3 years, I hope he stays on that path.

I was unaware of how far the devil worshipping accusations went.
