- Operation: Doomsday (Expanded Edition) by MF DOOM
Chances are if you're not already familiar with this LP then you'll be reluctant to want to own this mega-deluxe edition. But for Doom fans this is possibly the Holy Grail. When Daniel Dumile first unleashed his MF Doom alter-ego onto the world via the Fondle 'Em label back in 1999 it was like a bomb went off. His abstract wordplay was the breath of fresh air the hip-hop community needed and he has since been recognized as one of the most forward thinking and enigmatic MCs/producers on the planet. Like the expanded CD set released in a metal lunch box recently this contains a whole ton of goodies. The original edition has here been remastered and expanded into a whopping 42 Track 4LP Set which includes alternate versions, B-sides, plus rare originals and instrumentals complete with a 32-page lyric book and super cool looking Doomsday MCs card set (featuring the characters that appear within the tracks) all housed in a unique limited P.I.L.-style metal box package with embossed iconic mask logo on the lid. I think it's fair to say that deluxe editions of records really don't get much more appealing than this. Doom is one of the most creative and simultaneously puzzling MCs to grace the MIC in recent years so this lavish set is more than justified. Switching into different personas with intelligent and witty lyrics, sometimes confusing and surreal when he's been drinking too many beers. I'm given the impression at numerous points that he's just freestyling, compulsively dropping rhymes/words that he's somehow channeling through his subconscious, but always with a very distinctive voice and unique delivery perfectly complementing his production style, which much like fellow crate digger Madlib is heavily sample based. Oh and in true hip-hop style there are plenty of entertaining skits. An incredible, highly regarded, cult hip-hop classic that over the years has drifted in and out of print is now available in a format which for many fans will blow their minds. A record that sounds both of its time and yet timeless thanks to the raw and soulful production. If you can ill afford the price tag on this one then at least make the effort to grab it in its original form as no self respecting hip-hop collection should exist without it. Highly recommended.
