06:42 - psykometal So, like a Body Count thing? :P
04:57 - 3rdWorld Dayum, Death Grips begin their latest record with a thrash hip hop track. Sounds really awful in words but they really do make it work.
04:54 - 3rdWorld I really thought it could be from the 80's but damn thats a '12 record. Nice artist but that doesn't count out Kendrick for me.
04:45 - Apothecary Which makes sense in part, as he is from Zimbabwe by birth (hence Mugabe on that album cover)
04:45 - Apothecary Ehhh... different strokes, but I'd take Billy Woods over Kendrick any day. He is does some of the BEST sociopolitical hip hop out there imo. Profound comments on the effects of imperialism and colonialism
04:42 - 3rdWorld Good alternative hip hop track. Sounds exactly like a precursor to something that Kendrick is doing. :)
01:46 - Apothecary Oh wait, we're still talking about hip hop? Ok, listen to this guy then [link] And preferably check out the lyrics as well, VERY deep and well-constructed
I remember from a documentary on musical notes production and history, that the ancient Chinese believed music is the answer of human beings to their surroundings and nature. In this regard mostly their music is based on the five-tone instead of seven-tone scale.
Hence I would say Igorrr has got the best, righteous and exact answer to our surrounding, nature and environment by means of music. What do we have? We have chaos, no clear patterns for events, sometimes disastrous incidents and there are moments filled with pure beauty and bittersweet emotions.
It really doesn't matter what you've listened to in 2012, nothing comes within a light year of how schizophrenic, eclectic, bizarre, unique and brilliant this record is. Experimental breakcore and blasting cybergrind punctuated by modern classical piano and violin, arias, Latin guitar, chickens, fluttering bird wings, vacuum cleaners (no joke) and who knows what else.
Seriously. Unless you've heard this then you've heard nothing like this.
Incredible... How can you take so many elements that people say should never mix, and then turn them into this beauty of an album? Can't believe I've been missing out on this!

I was searching for Avantgarde metal in google, and then I found this piece of shit. Electronic dance music is the most disgusting musical genre ever and grindcore is a joke. And THIS ALBUM manages to mix the two biggest shit genres ever? No way....
The song Toothpaste has been misspelled on my iPod as Tootphaste for a long time, and this entire time I thought it was the way the song was actually spelled. I'm kind of disappointed to learn that it's actually just Toothpaste, as what I have on my iPod is fittingly weird.
