operation: doomsday shows doom at his most comfortable, enigmatic, hungry, and capable. the record ends up being a dizzying display of doom's intricate and highly stimulating lyrical abilities, but it never overshadows the smooth, bouncing 90's boom bap production. a gold standard in the new decade of hip-hop, a showcase of how great the art form can be.

best tracks: doomsday / hey! / tick, tick

flat, uninspired vocals. stale instrumentation. if a nice, catchy melody rears it's head for a moment, not to worry! it'll be drowned out in a wave of reverb in no time. didn't know they made music so horrendously boring. fit for soundtracking an urban outfitters shopping spree, and that's about it.

the instrumentation is odd enough to keep your attention, but the sound is cozy and makes for a tasteful nostalgia-laced callback to lou reed's quieter moments. of course, this does mean thought rock fish scale stands to be far more interesting than it actually is.

best tracks: mixer / stargazer / roll it
