Product Description

Amazon.com

Of all Kool Keith's bizarre career moves, teaming up with pusherman Ice-T to form the Analog Brothers has to rank up there. Along with the mysterious trio of Silver Synth, Mark Moog, and Rex Roland, Keith and the Original Gangster wage war on rap's digital principality. "Analog Brother's Intro" revisits the Ultramagnetic MCs' "We Are the Horsemen" for the year 2005 with a creepy bass growl and some of Ice-T's slickest rhymes in years. The Brothers live up to their analog moniker with amazing, otherworldly production values that are equal parts synthpop, electro bass, and vintage spaced-out Keith. Lead single "2005" boasts a moody Moog groan and synthesized strings, and check the amazing "Permsbaldheadsafrosdreads" for a scary look at tomorrow's hairstyle repression. Lyrical references are both abstract and everyday, a rewarding rhyme stew of 1980s baseball players, space-pimp boasts, and futuristic paranoia. --Hua Hsu

"Pimp To Eat" brings space beats, out of control advanced lyrics, and an overall greatness. Kool Keith and Ice T of course are the highlights of this album. Keith brings his usual style of wacky, off the wall lyrics and Ice T changes his style from original gangster to space pimp. Silver Synth's futuristic-sounding voice also shines on this CD. There is nothing mainstream about this album, just 5 MCs coming together to make an album that probably won't be recognized until the year 2005.
Bionic Oldsmobile, Country Girl, Silver Surfer vs. Analog Annihilator are three of the best tracks.

If you thought Kool Keith's Dr. Octagon and Black Elvis was as "spaced-out" as it gets, then you my friend, thought wrong. Boys and girls, I give you, Analog Brothers Pimp to Eat. An "out-of-this-world" hip-hop adventure, where Star Trek and Stargate, are things of ancient history.
If having the dangerously bizarre Kool Keith isn't enough to convince you Pimp to Eat is far off in left field, then maybe the exotic combination of both Kool Keith and the more cliched rapper Ice T will. In fact, Pimp to Eat is so far in left field, it's past the warning track.
Equipped with Keith Korg, Ice Oscillator, Silver Synth, and Rex Roland, the Analog Brothers cook up quite a recipe, and boy is the outcome yummy. Analog Intro, to Analog Outro, the album itself does not dissatisfy. Pimp to Eat, is no classic such as the flawless Dr. Octagon and Dr. Dooom projects from Kool Keith, but if you're looking for that abstract flavor of hip-hop, this may be just as good. The production isn't up to par with Keith's other releases, which is the principal flaw with the album. Lyrically, Pimp to Eat is in a category of it's own. That could be good or bad, depending who's listening. I honestly thought Ice T would devalue the album with his predictable and mediocre rap style, but my unfaithfulness in Ice Oscillator proved to be a complete bombshell, as he ripped each and every track he spit on. The others (Keith Korg, Silver Synth, & Rex Roland) were on point as well.
If you're looking for superbly produced hip-hop, then by all means turn away. If you can withstand second-rate instrumentals, laced with lyrics of that beyond your usual Kool Keith standard, look no further.

Without a doubt, PIMP TO EAT is one of the best things to hit hip-hop in a long while. While these generic Bling-Bling'ers pop out their lil' innocuous pop s*$t, two of the kings have teamed up to show and prove with some very able upstarts along for the ride.
Contrary to what some know-nothings have posted, Ice is Keith's equal (and more!) in every respect. I love Keith, but it's Ice's incredible presence on the mic which captivates. Vocal timbre in effect, y'all. Be amazed as Ice flips it high-tech ("Intro"), and then laces ya with that intense, yet cool drawl (the AWESOME "More Freaks").
Here's hoping the Brothers reunite soon for a follow-up. Essential hip-hop for true headz. Don't sleep. . .

I'm not going to go into detail here, just a short review.

The concept could have flopped and resulted in a really, really corny album, but they pulled it off pretty well.

I approached the album as an Ice-T fan, so I'm not gonna front, he's never really been known for his lyricism. His fans have gravitated to his work strictly for the content. But starting with "Home Invasion"(1993) he really stepped up his flow and rhymes (even if the political content has suffered more and more with each release, which it certainly has). I was pleasantly surprised with Ice's flow on this album. Honestly, when I first saw the album I picked it up just to complete my collection. However, it definitely holds up and it's good to hear Ice-T in top form (musically) even if he's not the socially conscious soldier any more.

Production - 7.5/10
Lyrics - 7

Excellent disc here from the Analog Bros. Takin' waaaay back. Simple beats and nice flow - effortless between them, beautiful. Sensitive ladies (including your momma) may not like some of the lyrics... but what do you want with a title like this? Anyway, not a masterpiece, I say, because Keith can do better (and so can Ice-T) and I've heard better work from other artists this year. But I'm not going to sell it or anything and it's definitely in heavy rotation. If you dig on the hard rhymes, like Kool Keith/Ice-T, still yearn for the fat beats and aren't past the 808, well... buy the record.

While "Matthew" was a respectable album, and the lyrics will make you crap your slacks, "Pimp to Eat" is a mind-boggling mess of Sci-Fi dust with far-reaching rhyme range. Silver Synth rocks the mic over Keith on many a track, especially "Analog Intro." Ice-T is in incredible form, silencing all of the nay-sayers with his drops on Who Wanna Be Down? and calling shots on More Freaks. Country Girl shows the softer side of Keith, and everything ends up conjoined at the end. With incredible production and unique rhymes, this album is a definite buyer.

This is a fun album, worthwhile for those who are already fans of Kool Keith. But beware if you are buying this used. The instrumental version of this CD looks exactly the same as the real version. It even has the same catalog number! I'd advise not buy this from Marketplace, unless the seller will pop this in a CD player and confirm that it is not the instrumental version.
