Bionic Oldsmobile, Country Girl, Silver Surfer vs. Analog Annihilator are three of the best tracks.
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

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.
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. . .

Kool Keith is one of the best, but even an all-out Keith fan like me would be scratching his head at Keith teaming up with copkiller-turned-sitcom-actor Ice-T. Read morePublished on May 5, 2004 by Mani Tadayon
