MF DOOM's debut album was a complete game-changer when it was unleashed on unsuspecting hip hop heads. Backpacker types immediately became enamoured with DOOM's left-field beats which drew upon obscure funk, soul, jazz and cartoon/comic book samples, providing the perfect backdrop for the masked MC's abstract wordplay and complex rhymes. Just remember it's all caps when you spell the man's name!

Operation Doomsday, as an album, disregarding its style, might be considered a less than stellar fair. The sound is kind of uneven and some of the cuts are pretty rough, but everything it lacks gives it more appeal. It sounds like something straight out of the basement of some MCs from the early 90s. It's pretty lo fi and all the rappers, DOOM especially, sound so hungry. For those that discovered Madvillain first, it will be noticed that he sounds a lot less calm here. The raw and retro feeling of this album is an excellent break from the norm.
