Back again on vinyl where it belongs, MF DOOM's 1999 classic Operation: Doomsday is now presented on a premiumgrade LP, with audio re-mastered from the original Fondle'Em Records release, and a poster of the album cover art!Underneath his mysterious metal mask, MF DOOM hides the cachet underground legends are made of. After KMD (hisfirst group)’s 1994 sophomore album Bl_ck B_st_rds was shelved by Elektra in 1994 and his blood brother Subroc (onehalf of the sibling rap duo) passed away, surviving frontman Zev Love X mutated into the MC Avenger known as MFDOOM and the Rap world is better for it. This 19-cut deep album is ridiculously dope, in a bizarro Ol’ Dirty Bastard kindof way. Doom sounds either high or drunk on most of the tracks, his self-produced beats are gritty, and his rhyme stylesare almost indecipherable. On arguably the best track, “Rhymes Like Dimes,” Doom weaves some pointed lyrics throughhis abstract wordplay, spitting ‘only in America could you find a way to earn a healthy buck / And still keep your attitudeon self-destruct.’Who You Think I Am? features DOOM‘s crew M.onster I.sland C.zars, while on “?” he trades hot verses with formerColumbia artist Kurious Jorge. Doom’s avant-garde ghetto-rhyme philosophies take even more intentionally weird twistson “Tick, Tick...” where he and guest MC MF Grimm’s flows warble over a rhythm track whose tempo speeds up andslows down continually. The comic-book themed skits, will help take you deep into the mind of an MC who is as otherworldlyas they come. And in today’s bland commercial Rap universe, Operation: Doomsday’s left-of-center beats andrhymes are the perfect remedy.
