OMG. I just aquired this and listened to it without reading any of the reveiws. How fucking amazing is it? I'd have been happy if it was better than 'The Tipping Point', which lets face it wouldn't have been hard. But it's like one of their best albums.
'Here I Come' is immense. Dice Raw & Malik B!! And Malik B is on three tracks, it's as if he's back in the band. ?uest's drumming is consistantly jaw droppingly funky, and it's ace that they've started sampling well. There's even a Radiohead sample which is used perfectly.
And I was just thinking this was a shit year for hip-hop, i've only really liked Spank Rock and Ghostface this year, but this makes me want to listen to a whole lot more.
