After much uncertainty as to whether the man behind the mask would release another LP, here comes 'Born Like This', the newest rap gem by MF DOOM (just DOOM now I guess). Like the gold painted mask on the cover, this album is straight up gold, an instant hip hop classic, on par with his stunning 'MMM...Food' album, and easily surpassing his collaboration with Madlib on the breakthrough 'Madvilliany'.

After hearing about the whole 'Madvilliany 2' mess I figured ol' DOOM might disappear on us, far from it, in fact DOOM is back with more intelligent, clever lyrics, dope beats and a rather cohesive album. DOOM's flow is much tighter this time around, ensuring his place amongst those rare rappers that can seamlessly blend a poppy flow with an underground variant, still weaving pop icon references, comic books, video games, awesome metaphors and a rugged vibe into his lyrical style. Yet he also retained a socially conscious element to his visions, blended with the myriad of obscure cartoon samples and sound effects. The beats feature a more solid production, and are some of DOOM's best yet.

Whether it be calling out the power hungry of the world or bellowing out cypher-like braggadocio rants, DOOM has the microphone in control. DOOM never fails to impress me; his lyrical flow is unique and unmatched, his beats original and flavorful. 'Born Like This' is easily a top contender for best Hip Hop album of 2009.

"He was born like this, into this, around this" MF DOOM embodies the prime essence and example of originality on every album he's dropped and this one has amplified all of the key traits that make MF DOOM that rap supervillain he is. I admittedly lost a bit of respect for DOOM after the whole imposter situation(s) that went down at several of his live shows including a Rock The Bells concert (which I thought was just retarted on all counts) & somewhat thought it would taint any new material that he could have dropped. But Born Like This put all that to rest, here DOOM has pushed the envelope on his rhymes up several notches, a more energetic delivery, still humorously slips in disses to himself in a way only DOOM can pull off, and most importantly, his sound has not changed one bit. He still cuts & pastes dialouge samples from movies & Fantastic Four cartoons to accurately describe his villianous persona from the long hiatus in his career to the fact of him being an anti-mainstream hero (or villian), his beats still have his signature style written all over them, and the beats Jake One, Madlib, & J Dilla contribute are just beautiful and fit DOOM's flow so well.
"Absolutely" is such a sick, soulful laid back beat & DOOM relaxes his flow a bit for it "Absolute power corrupts absolutely, now you have your orders, do your duty". But as sick as that track is, I still find it very hard to skip straight to it whenever I put the CD in because the album plays smoothly from start to finish without skipping a single track. No fillers here ladies & gentlemen.

MF DOOM is everything that these wack rappers today are not.

Daniel Dumile has released many albums under many different alias's, whether he was MF Doom, Viktor Vaughn, King Geedorah, zev love x (KMD), or Metal Fingers. He was recently forced to drop the MF from his title over a legal battle with "****** ******". Now he goes by the name, DOOM. Born Like This is the album, and its phenomenal. Every beat on BLT is sensational, the darkest production i've heard since Vaudeville Villain. J Dilla and madlib each produce one track (my two personal favs). Jake one and DOOM produce the rest of the album, along with help from MR.Chop. If DOOM's lyrical assault has weakened, its only by a smidgen of a particle of a fragment of dust, (when you have such releases as operation doomsday, madvilliany, vaudeville villain, the mouse and the mask, mmm...food and black bastards for us to use as comparison... well not much else need be said). What I love most about BLT is the overall tone of the album and the message DOOM wants to extend about himself. The most honest I can ever recall him being. His flow is a lot better than it has been as of late too. Although it clocks in at only forty or so minutes, I think that adds to the records greatness. As soon as I finished it I found myself listening to it over and over, again and again.

I am not a big fan of Doom's own production, which is why I much prefer Madvillain to nearly any of his other work. That said, his production is quite welcome among this eclectic bunch of mixed beats. This album is very well mastered, and he really brought out some bars here, as far as his flow quality. All Doom fans are picky, because he gives enough variety to warrant that, but I love JJ Doom, Dangerdoom, Madvillain, Viktor Vaughn, and BORN LIKE THIS the best. Make of it what you will.

I have most, if not all, of Dumile's recordings under various guises. This collection of tracks is mediocre for his talent. There is a gem or two in the bunch, but the compilation is not fit to "let it ride."
