Live From Planet X
Used - LP - MFR-102
2016 Reissue, Standard Black Vinyl Pressing In Silver Foil Embossed Jacket. First Vinyl Release, Originally Released In 2005 By Nature Sounds. Recorded Live In San Francisco. Very Light Shelf Wear Scuffs To Cover, No Tears. "Originally Titled Live At The Dna Lounge And Given Away With Pre-orders For The Instrumental Collection Special Herbs, Vol. 5-6, Live From Planet X Isn't The Most Vital Release From Mf Doom But It Will Satisfy Both The Faithful And Familiar. Doom Has Added Some "Space Sound Effects" To This New Version That Fit Perfectly With The Album's Feel Since This Isn't Your Usual Live Release. There's Little Room Ambience And Crowd Participation Is Fairly Absent On This Straight-from-the-soundboard Recording, But Doom Himself Is All The Way Live, Rattling Off Two Studio Albums' Worth Of Rhymes Without Ever Sounding Spent. It's An Underground Lyric Lover's Dream, And There Are Early-era Hits Aplenty With The Best Of Operation: Doomsday And Some Assorted Singles Getting Righteous Workouts. The Flow Is From The Street To Outer Space As The Rapper Gets Looser As He Goes And The Show Ends In A Trippy Cacophony Of Melting Sound Effects And Turntables Grinding To A Halt. Bummer That It's All On One Track On The Cd, But If Doom's Making A Point, Point Taken. Live From Planet X Has Its Highlights, But If The Listener Has The Time, It Is Better Taken As A 40-minute Journey. Doom's Relentless Verbal Attack Is Overwhelming This Way And While Any Of His More Mind-altering Studio Albums Are Better Introductions To The Artist, Live From Planet X Works Just Fine As Doom Purchase Number Two, Especially If You're All About The Venomous Verse."

Operation: Doomsday
New - LP - MF94LP
Sealed Latest Press Of The 2016 Reissue With Alternate "Lunchbox" Cover. Includes An 18x24 Poster. "Simultaneously Hailed As An Underground Classic And Cast Aside As Poorly Produced Backpack Rap, Operation: Doomsday Inaugurated The Reign Of Mf Doom In Underground Rap From The Early To Mid-2000s. The Pretext For The Album Is Very Similar To That Of Marvel Comics Supervillain Dr. Doom; After Mf Doom, Then Known As Zevlove X, Had Been Devastated By The Death Of His Brother And K.m.d. Accomplice, Dj Sub-roc, In The Early '90s, Elektra Dropped His Group And Stopped The Release Of Its Second Album, Black Bastards, Due To Its Political Message And, More Specifically, Its Cover Art. Doom Was Left Scarred With A Lingering Pain That Didn't Manifest Until The Late '90s As Hip-hop's Only Masked Supervillain On Bobbito Garcia's Fondle 'em Records. Carrying The Weight Of The Past On His Shoulders, Doom Opens And Closes Operation: Doomsday With Frank And Sincere Lyrics. In Between, However, Many Of The Villain's Rhymes Are Rather Hard And Piercing. On His Subsequent Material, He Developed A More Steady And Refined Delivery, But On This Debut, Doom Was At His Rawest And, Lyrically, Most Dexterous. The Out-of-left-field Edge Of Doom's Production -- Which Features '80s Soul And Smooth Jazz Mixed With Classic Drum Breaks -- Is Indeed Abstract At Times, But His Off-kilter Rhymes Are Palatable And Absent Any Pretentiousness. In Fact, The Album Arguably Contains Some Of The Freshest Rhymes One Might Have Heard Around The Time Of Its Release. There Are More Than Enough Obscure But Fun References (I.e. "Quick To Whip Up A Script Like Rod Serling" On "Go With The Flow" Or "Mcs, Ya Style Needs Velamints" On "Dead Bent") And Quotable Jewels From The "On-the-mike Rain Man" To Feed On. Nevertheless, One Would Be Hard-pressed To Overlook The Low-budget Mixing That Mars Some Of The Lp's Presentation. For The Hardcore Doom Fans, The Recorded-in-the-basement Quality Is Appealing And Representative Of His Persona As The Underdog Who "Came To Destroy Rap." In Contrast, Given His Contributions To Hip-hop During The 2000s, The Masked Villain Offers This Explanation On "Doomsday": "Definition: Supervillain/a Killer Who Loves Children/one Who Is Well-skilled In Destruction As Well As Buildin'." Even Though This Album Is Certainly Not For Everyone, You Can Easily Respect From Where The Man Is Coming." AMG Review By Cyril Cordor. more
