Outstanding. Great tunes and the subject material is ac-a-dem-ic!! If you're a biology teacher, buy it. If you're not, but like biology, buy it. If you're a biologist, but hate rap, buy it. You're taste will evolve.
No need for me to rewrite. See Olivia Judson's review in the New York Times, 5 May 2010.

I usually don't like rap/hip-hop music, because often I find the lyrics too aggressive and offending. Baba Brinkman shoes here that it doesn't have to be. He is funny and brilliant. The music is what it is, but for me it's really the content, the material and the way it's presented that stand out here. Read the review on the New York Times website here: [...].

I'm not really much of a rap fan. However, I love this album, because I love the message of science and reason. The quality of the songs is uniformly good. Unlike some others, I don't have a problem with the sound quality either. Keep up the good work, Baba.

The lyrics are brilliant, and the music is good rap, but the quality of this recording is terrible. Whole sections are unintelligible. Does anyone know if a better version is available?

Correction: the problem was in my playback settings. My apologizes to all.

I'm not a huge rap fan. I like Things Fall Apart, The Anthology, Reachin, some earlier stuff including a little Eminem...but not much else. But I'm a sucker for clever wordplay over phat beats. Kids still saying that? "Phat beats"? I don't know. I'm a middle-aged white dude who generally likes Rush and Bad Religion. But I fell in love with "Rap Guide" on the first listen through it, because it makes learning fun, memorable, and oddly hip. Sort of like the old Schoolhouse Rock! (Special 30th Anniversary Edition) songs, but with more bite, more edge, more attitude. And I'm a sucker for a Richard Dawkins sample. I think most of the songs on "Guide" work on two levels...as pedagogy and as--so help me--party music. Except for the "We Are Made of DNA" one, which is way too quirky and whiny to be listenable. Bonus: If you are or know a high school student facing a biology class test on evolution, if you know the raps on "Guide," you know more about evolution than probably 70, 80 percent of Americans. Including many who accept evolution as the fact it is. I'm not saying "Guide" will get you into Harvard, but it might help prevent you being taken in by slick-sounding creationist nonsense. And that's not nothing.
