Here is the 2-CD Gold Edition of Vaudeville Villain, which includes the classic album in its entirety (including two bonus tracks "Open Mic Night" and "Change The Beat") as well as a bonus gold-colored CD of instrumentals, acapellas and other rarities! Fans of the metal faced villain probably already know this album inside and out, but for those who slept on it, here's some background. Vaudeville Villain was originally released back in 2003 and found Doom reincarnated as the mad scientist Viktor Vaughn. The signature quick-witted, tongue tying rhymes are there (and entertaining as hell as usual), but this time the villain lets other producers take the reigns on the beats (which isn't a bad thing in this case). Featuring production from King Honey, Heat Sensor, Max Bill and RJD2, the album explores next level electronica and downtempo influenced beats that are a perfect compliment to Doom's conceptual flow. This is now the definitive version of the album and will definitely sell out quickly, so act fast! Recommended.
