wow really great effort by mos. he never disappoints.

really feelin the whole album

the beat in Life In Marvelous Times is f**king bananas No Hay Nada Mas is raw cuz he spittin in another language which is totally mind blowing.
And of course History Ft. Talib Kweli cuz well that a givin. We need a new Black Star album fellas

raw s**t. Its wild cuz I saw mos in NYC in Jan and he performed a few of these tracks at the end of his set. I was hoping id be able to hear em again on the album

it refreshing to hear some quality alternative hiphop

this is crack. mos is always pushing the envelope.

especially with the 60-70's era ethnic African American beats. hot hot hot.

just a reminder that Madlib's been doing this too (brazillian, reggae, not to mention obscure jazz samples). Dilla used to sample alot of ethnic sounds in Welcome 2 Detroit, and Jaylib's CD was mostly Indian sampled beats. Kanye also used alot of Taiko drums. RZA used alot of African drums too.

we are definately seeing a trend in great progressive hip hop artists.

Damn this album is solid as f**k.

You can tell he listened to a lot of old school MF DOOM and was inspired. It's most evident on Wahid and Revelations.

Man, i love the production on this album. So sick.

My favorite track is Pistola right now. That beat is too sick. And Mos k!lls it.

4.5/5

I'm actually pissed at myself for voting on this poll after only one or two listens. I gave it a 4 but I definitely should have given it a 5--this album is a masterpiece. After like 10 listens I can't stop listening and actually look forward to listening more. Every single track is ridiculous. Classic material from Mos--it took 10 years to do it again, but he definitely did it with The Ecstatic.
