The definitive Dangerdoom collection. Metal Face Records has pressed up the 2006 Dangerdoom EP Occult Hymn onto vinyl for the first time and paired it with the now-classic Mouse & The Mask album for this limited edition triple LP set. The whole is housed in a deluxe, triple gatefold sleeve with additional bonus cuts not on the original album, making this a must-grip release for Dangerdoom fans. Our original review of Mouse & The Mask: It's kind of amazing how good these "underground blockbuster" collabs have been for MF Doom- seems no matter who he's working with it comes off better than 99% of what's out. This heavily anticipated combination of Dangermouse and MF Doom continues the streak with both guys cleanly executing their end of the concept album- it could be Dangermouse's most consistent production yet, and Doom is as entertaining and illustrious as ever. The songs revolve loosely around the cartoons from Adult Swim (Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Space Ghost, etc), and some of the characters also make appearances but that doesn't ever get in the way of Doom's lyrics. In fact, if the concept wasn't so explicitly spelled out with the marketing & packaging, you might not even notice it. Just another layer to dig into. Plus the Hunger Force makes real good skits. Guest spots are kept strong & minimal with quality appearances from Talib Kweli, Cee-Lo and Ghostface. Recommended.
