I dug Madvillainy almost immediately

As far as weird conceptual hip-hop goes, I think it's far more accessible than say, Dr Octagonycologist.

Hahaha I listened to that album when I had a bad cold once and was half asleep. Really trippy stuff, I barely remember any of it other than it was bizarre and raunchy.

Bizarre and raunchy about sums it up; Kool Keith is rather scatalogically obsessed. I can't say I love it, but certain songs work well (Blue Flowers) and the production by Dan the Automator is pretty good.

I'm starting to dig R.A.P. Music a bit more. I can feel what's going on here; purist, old-school hip-hop with some really in your face rapping and lyricism. It's not something to throw on whenever, but it does make you feel like a badass whenever you do.

Big Beast and Ghetto Gospel are my favorite tracks taking everything into account, but the beat of Jo Jo's Chillin' goes hard.

I have to say, Liquid Swords in my top five hip-hop albums now. It took me a while but jesus christ is it good. I'd say it and Kaputt are my two most-listened-to albums in the past year.

GZA is just an absolute master. His style doesn't hit you immediately like Ghostface, ODB or RZA, it's more like death by a thousand cuts.

Ab-Soul has a serious mancrush on Yeezy.

Besides this one sampling Addiction heavily:

Ab-Soul - Nothing's Something - YouTube

There's one track on the album that references "Yeezy taught me" and there's another track here called "Beautiful Death." Makes me smile to see My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy already proving so influential on young hip hop acts.

There were three or four references to it on Section.80.

I'm only on track 1 of R.A.P. Music, but...it can't possibly be this good straight through right?

Big Beast is probably the best thing on there, but everything else is strong as well (save for Reagan which is stunningly embarrassing)

"Big Beast" starts so strong and then "Untitled" is quite good as well. It's not that it gets bad after that, but it goes from, "Oh shit, oh shit, this is my favorite album ever" to #15 of just this year by then end of the listen. "Reagan" is fucking hilarious. I'm so glad that song exists...but so confused by its existence in 2012. I like how he tries to tie it together by throwing in some lyrics about Obama, and it's just a beautiful train wreck of hilarity.
