This was MF DOOMs powerful debut.
A. Rubin
The production uses incredibly cheesy, corny samples, but Doom is able to make them work to great effect.
Paul H.
This is one of the greatest hip hop albums ever made in my opinion.

Amazing. This album embodies everything that hip-hop is all about, and basically that is having fun. Oh sure, he's got some social commentary thrown in as on "Rhymes Like Dimes" where part of the hook goes "Only in America could you find a way to make a healthy buck and still keep your attitude on self-destruct..." but mostly he's just kicking extraordinary rhymes with a seemingly effortless flow. There is an unpolished gritty feel to the whole project as MF DOOM proclaims on "Dead Bent" that he "comes through raw like the elements..." Perhaps one of the most intriguing elements of MF DOOM's music is his ability to combine the scientific with the street. His sampled skits of Stan Lee's Dr. Doom, full of scientific malarkey, beakers boiling and maniacal threats of world domination blend in seemlessly with the sounds of sub-way trains, and urban soundscapes. Despite the oft times silliness of this album there is an eerie quality to it that is more than likely owing to the fact that MF DOOM's brother SubRoc was killed a few years before the making of this album and the shout out he gives to his deceased brother on "Kurious?" where he exclaims "...everything is going exactly according to plan, man." is spine chilling. Strangley there was little indication within his previous work with K.M.D. to suggest that MF DOOM would someday become arguably the worlds greatest emcee. His days of relative recluse after his brothers death were obviously spent honing his writing, producing, and dee-jaying skills but all seemed to have grown exponentially in a relatively short amount of time. Thus the comic book skits of Dr.Read more ›

This is the Independent equivalent of NAS - Illmatic as MF Doom literally grabs a microphone and a tape deck and creates an album that has all the evidence that it was done in his bedroom. It has clips from everything from a `Speak and Spell' to the Fantastic 4 cartoon (a nod to Ghostface Killah - Supreme Clientele use of Ironman) before the hip-hop kicks in with some great beats and background vocals, there is something about MF Doom's voice and lyrics that catches you when he matches the beats almost perfectly and can hold for break-beats right on cue and then spins his rap around the tunes in ways that really haven't been done before elsewhere. 'Tick Tick' is one of the strangest hip-hop tunes ever conceived but when you hear the way he can rap with those kind of beat changes every second or so is just amazing. MF Doom really is a very ill indie hip-hop talent that will surprise any mainstream listener. MF Doom is very popular with seasoned hip-hop enjoyers and it is not hard to see why. The pulsation that is Operation Doom is one of the best albums you can have in any album collection let alone a 'best of' Hip-Hop collection. It also remains highly arty in its overall form. This is important and hip-hop subgenre defining stuff stuff. Truly musical and with tons of heart and a mind to do something original and new. Wow.

I'm not gonna review the album,because we all know it's a classic,probably top 10 of all time,but this re-issue is so wack that I don't know where to start describing it.It look's like cheap bootleg.The "booklet" is just one page and it's white on inside,the cd is also cheap looking.This is not the original cd this is official bootleg.I am willing to invest money in my cd collection,what i've been doing for 18 years,but if this is what I get for my money,maybe I should start downloading.I know that original press was also low budget,but they can put little more effort in this.As far as I hear voices track goes that was bonus cut on 2001 version of this album on sub verse records.This track listing is from original pressing on fondle 'em, records from 1999.PEACE

classic material from one of the most influential and innovative emcees ever. the combination of an industry and fans asleep and very bad luck has mf doom only now catching fire.
first seen and heard on the video/single for third bass's "gas face", daniel dumile ,aka zev luv x formed kmd (kausin' much damage) back in the early 90's. kmd has some hits like "mr. hood" and was poised to step into the conscious niche then inhabited by tribe called quest and brand nubian. then the trouble - elektra freaked about his "sambo" cover art for the next release "bl_ck b_st_rds", a fight ensued with kmd dropped from the label. 2 days later, zev's twin brother was killed in a car accident.
emerging from that wreckage as mf doom, the super villian, this amazing body of work, operation: doomsday is created. joints such as "?" and "i hear voices" are intelligent standouts. there is a animated video that is dope for the "voices" cut as well.
definately support this record - it possitive, important, fun, bangin' and might just maybe, reclaim hip-hop from the disease of wackness - big ups to sub verse music for recognizing this.

**NOTE** YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THIS ENTIRE ALBUM ON EMUSIC.COM LEGALLY. They are a subscriber site but right now (August 2004) they are running a promotion of 50 free song downloads upfront but you still need a credit card.

Okay now about the album. I heard DOOM first on the Madvillain album he did with Madlib. I have been a Madlib fan for a while now because of the authentic jazz flavor and unpolished genius of his production, and I heard some of those same qualities in DOOM's rapping. His style is strikingly unique; it is sprinkled with trite cliches and irrelevant combinations of words that seem to be included merely for the way they sound (in a way kind of like Radiohead lyrics). His verses run on with a refreshing lack of hooks and an improvisational flowing quality that mesh perfectly with his ambitious soul chillout-style beats.

Operation Doomsday, as an album, disregarding its style, might be considered a less than stellar fair. The sound is kind of uneven and some of the cuts are pretty rough, but everything it lacks gives it more appeal. It sounds like something straight out of the basement of some MCs from the early 90s. It's pretty lo fi and all the rappers, DOOM especially, sound so hungry. For those that discovered Madvillain first, it will be noticed that he sounds a lot less calm here.

Some tracks really stand out...Rhymes Like Dimes, Doomsday, Go With the Flow, Gas Drawls...but most of them are great. Tick Tick is really interesting because it keeps slowing down and speeding up. And none of the guests artists are wack. The cartoony interludes are kind of clever and funny, but I've never been a big fan of interludes. But all in all, it's very refreshing to hear this new take on rap music from the enigmatic supervillain; the raw and retro feeling of this ablum is an excellent break from the norm.

If you like DOOM, check out his aliases King Geedorah, Viktor Vaughn, and Madvillain.
