Fantastic album, one of my favorites of 2012. Terrorist Threats, Pineal Gland, Double Standards, ILLuminate, Beautiful Death, Book of Soul, and Black Lip Bastard are all amazing songs and have been some of my favorite go-to songs for a while. A Rebellion and Empathy are pretty bad though. This album has propelled Ab-Soul to one of my favorite rappers out now.
