A masterpiece. I’ve always been familiar with this album for a lot of years. But ever since I started this page I never gave it a full listen. It’s becoming a cliche now but with the stunning production from Madlib and some of the best delivered and most captivating bars from MF DOOM, Madvillainy is one of hip hops classic masterpieces. With 22 songs including 3 standalone instrumental tracks, majority of each being under 3 minutes, this results in an overall 46 minute run length. DOOM sticks with his usual dark and deep flow and delivery for most tracks but what really sticks with me is Madlibs samples and production on this album. It’s such a different vibe from DOOM’s performance but they just work together so well. This production is some of the best I have ever heard on a rap album. Overall, this album deserves every plaudit and bit of praise it gets. Truly a remarkable piece of music.
