That is the extremely anticipated & surprising collab album between East Coast supergroup CZARFACE & the renown MF DOOM. They initially collaborated on the arduous hitting “Ka-Bang!” off of CZARFACE’s basic 2015 sophomore album Each Hero Wants a Villain, however now they’re reuniting for a full-length venture collectively. After the “Take Your Medication” intro, we then get into the primary music “Meddle with Metallic”. Right here, the Metallic Face Villain alongside Inspectah Deck & Esoteric inform all of the wack MCs that armageddon is right here over an ominous beat from The Czar-Keys (7L & Spada4). The observe “Badness of Insanity” sees the three MCs bragging about their rapping prowess over some creepy keys & then after the “Nearer Talker” skit, we then get into the following music “Endlessly Individuals”. Right here, the three charismatically y’all about how dope they’re over some settle bass.
The observe “Captain Crunch” is mainly shit-talking the wack & to be trustworthy, I feel Deck has the most effective verse on right here. Particularly with how he began it. The 1 & a half minute “Don’t Spoil It” is a brief but head-bobbing Inspectah Deck solo lower that talks concerning the period he got here from & being hip hop’s most needed over some stay drumming & a guitar within the background. The music “Phantoms” with Open Mike Eagle sees the four making a flowery anthem over a futuristic beat whereas & I like how the beat modifications to one thing grimier through the 2nd half. The observe “Bomb Thrown” is stuffed with artistic battle bars with an eerie soul pattern within the background.
After the “You Masked For It” skit, we then go into the music “Astral Touring”. Whereas DOOM doesn’t have a verse on this joint in any respect, CZARFACE & Vinnie Paz do handle to spit violent bars all through & the way in which the beat modifications after every verse is a pleasant homage to “I’m the Man” by Gang Starr. The music “Nautical Depth” takes a jab on the present state of hip jump over an eerie beat whereas the observe “Stun Gun” is a 7L & Esoteric lower with battle bars over some bass & an organ. The music “MF Czar” talks about how the trio & the Villain are hip hop’s antidote over some grim digital keyboards whereas “Captain Brunch” is an honest remix to “Captain Crunch”. The album then finishes off with “Sleeping Canine”, which is only a 50 second instrumental.
From the second this was introduced, I knew this was gonna be nice. CZARFACE’s chemistry has been confirmed over the previous 5 years, however their chemistry with MF DOOM is stronger than it was on “Ka-Bang!”.
