Holy shit 25 tracks on this... I'm gonna be here all bloody night. A fair number of skits and interludes combine with some really cool tracks that sort of fuse hip-hop, especially beats with elements of 60's psychedelia and modern sampledelia. A couple of tracks on here in particular are very strong. He's done a mighty fine job here as this really could have been a messy collection of tracks considering all the ingredients but it comes off with integrity and thankfully steers clear of what could have been cheesy re-hash of mid 90's Ninja Tune gear. There's a huge amount happening here with immense attention to detail and some serious crate digging to source samples. I'm reminded of elements of Madlib, Prefuse 73 etc. For those that like their hip-hop trippin' on mushrooms.

I totally ignored this one when the album came out, largely because the triple-vinyl cost about £25 or something ridiculous like that.  So I bought the download of it instead, cos that was considerably cheaper, and, like I often do when I have music on the computer, totally forgot that it was there.  Which is a shame because it would've been a nice record to have spent my summer with.  The point is, though, I've remembered that I have it now, and I'm enjoying it tremendously.  Usual Paul White affair across the album, which, those White-connoisseurs amongst you will be all too aware, equals 25 tracks of proper hip-hoppin' sample-cuttin' quality.  Yes.
