Vaudeville Villain (which preceded Madvillainy by 9 months) is my second favorite thing he's done with a huge gap after that. His solo debut Operation: Doomsday is exceptional too though. I dunno, The Mouse and the Mask is a funny, breezy listen with a couple really great standouts, but it's more for fans or someone who wants a laugh.

Woah. He's also remixed Great Day and Accordion. Both are pretty cool.

Anyone heard Madvillainy 2? The remix album? Worth checking out?

Maybe if you ask my nicely. Certainly not with that attitude.

So I listened to Accordion, Raid and Fancy Clown. I loved Accordion until the rapping began. You did warn us, but it kind of ruined it for me though I still appreciate the accordion a lot. I just wish I liked, or at least found even mildly interesting, what he was saying. Really liked Fancy Clown, though.

I've had the album since the day it was released in 2004, liked it quite a bit then, but the only songs I've gone back to much in the last 8 years are Strange Ways and All Caps (I like both of those quite a bit still). To paraphrase Morrissey, I've come to the conclusion in the last few years that 99% of hip hop music says nothing to me about my life. I don't connect with the majority of it, particularly a lot of the "artists of the moment", and I'm ok with not trying to.

Precisely how I feel, so that the music itself has to be pretty special to me in order to connect with it. I'll have to check those two songs out.

Well, Aphex Twin says nothing to me about my life.

Nor does the Godfather.

Still valuable artistic work.

Nothing was said or implied about dismissing its artistic value, just that there often isn't enough to connect with that inspires a great deal of repeated listening.

Ah, my reading comprehension failed me. I thought mofo was implying that he's better off not trying any new hip-hop (which is absurd), not that he's better off assuming it won't connect with him and instead just appreciating it on an intellectual level.

When you guys are raving about a hip hop record, I generally give it a try though it's not what I gravitate towards naturally by any means. Most of it I still don't connect with, but occasionally I am surprised or even blown away (My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy) so I stay open.

Yeah, I was more or less just saying that I'm ok these days with not trying to force myself to like something if it's just not something I care for. As weird as it is to say, it's been liberating.
