After listening to this album I would like to declare that I am officially an old head.
KMD was a group closely affiliated with 3rd Bass (as they made their first appearance on 3rd Bass’ Gas Face track).

This is a very sample based album, which would later become a staple of Dumile's work. That said, nothing else on this album really sounds like DOOM. This album is very much a relic of its time, but it's still an enjoyable album. It could have been a lot shorter, though.


Best Track(s): Humrush, Nitty Gritty, Peachfuzz
Worst Track: Boy Who Cried Wolf
Fav Tracks: Nitty Gritty
Zev Love X isn't close to what he'll achieve later in his legendary career, but he and Sub Roc have a whole lot of fun on here. The sample-based production is a staple of DOOM's career that first pops up here. A must-listen for anyone going through Daniel Dumile's discography.
