Incredibly Creative Album

Wow. Listens like a story of the artist's life and struggles with amazingly introspective and intelligent lyrics. Quite a head trip. DJ Abilities beats compliment Eyedea's lyrics nicely. The only slight drawback to this album is that it is quite heavy- you need to be in a particular mindset to listen to it and willing to devote your entire attention. Does not work as background "party" music-but that was obviously not the artist's intention. Akin to a hip-hop acid trip.


now im a big JMT, GZA (any thing wu tang related for that matter) MF doom, slug, cunninlynguist ect... so this might be a bit of a bias review, but every track on this album had me in a state of "ahh" this imo is a must own


This cd changed my life. It's a hip hop epic about sanity, happiness, the future, the past and the present. Eyedea delves deep into ideas most rappers most rappers have never thought. He explains the walls our reality lives in on Powdered Water. He paints stories about psychological disorders on Murder of Memories and The Dive. Throughout there are valleys of sadness and darkness (The Dive, and Read Wiped in Blue) as well as peaceful peaks (Bonus Track 1 and Music Music) He returns to his freestyle battle roots on Big Shots and Blindly firing and fills the void in your heart and mind with the 2 parts of Void. Like on Void 2 he explains how things change from beauty to horror over time. Its great. buy it.
