I listened to the first half earlier today. Is it just me or is the mixing/mastering fucked up on some tracks? Camel Crush and War Drums are the two that come to mind. Other than that i don't have any complaints. Shea Stadium and Hashashin go hard as fuck. Ill finish it up later tonight or tomorrow.

Figures CC wouldn't fuck with this yet thinks Iron Flag is a classic lulz.

Beats are cool, but Meyhem rather sucks and got redundant quick. Also compare all the other feats to Roc, Mr. MFN Exquire and B-Real - big difference.

Just listened to the album in full start to finish. It's pretty fuckin dope!! The first track and last 2 tracks (the bonus tracks) are fuckin wack though. "Hashashin" is fuckin dope!! Feelin "Redrum" a lot too. Even Bronson sounds good on here.

Where you rank this in 2017 albums? Also favorite tracks? Just finished and it's fucking DAFFY. Wanna bump it few more times before proper ranking but besides opening track and audio annoyances with it, rest is banging. Only track not on level as others is War Drums. I'm even fucking with that bonus track Northern Blvd. Bugged out synths when bumping in ear buds. Guest spots ranged from decent to dope. Album didn't disappoint.

^nah, its all dope- wickid just being a boom bap square as usual.

as far as where i would rate it. its hard cause muggs just killed most producers this year with his detail,ill samples, rawness in general but meyhem aint the best emcee although entertaining and dope. id still have to say its top 5 material for this year though. its nice to hear a seasoned/highly skilled producer add subtle details to the beats, come with the stupid dope samples , keep it so raw and creative etc. wide range of beat styles on there.

I played this on the drive this morning on a proper sound system and definitely feel it alot more, even hologram didn't annoy me as much. 9 & 10 are both called murder rap on my DL is that right?

Bronson has made me think he can actually still rap unless it's old

so i almost pulled the trigger on this album from sew assassin dot com but for the cd plus shipping 30 bucks o hell no (what are they trying to flygod me? btw whoever made that flygod cover obviously started a trend and should get royalties for this cover and many others this year, congrats g- you're the new pen n pixel)

anyways i guess, i'll wait to get it from ughh if they ever get the rock solo back in stock (did rocks album get recalled or something?? wtf i tried coppin here, fat beats, and amazon all on back order til the end of the month)

CepEnWhy did the FLYGOD cover then got enlisted to do a bunch more. He did the Da Villins cover, the SS96J cover, the Don't Get Scared Now EP cover (obviously), the Milano Constantine Way We Were cover, the Thurman Munsin cover, the Motif Alumni & Kas cover and a bunch more shit.

last good Muggs album was Pain Language imo...
there were a couple of good joints on the Ill Bill album as well, but the rest was kinda meh.
and this album is Meyhem is boring for the most part production-wise.. too simplistic/lazy production 1-loop beats and whatnot.

So I'm confused on the bonus tracks if someone can help me out. Exactly how many are there? 2 correct?. The back cover for the deluxe edition lists "Champion Style" & "Frozen Angels" as the extras, however in the DL the two extra after "Tension" are actually called "Northern Blvd" & "Psychdelic Relic" both clearly mentioned in their respective choruses. Are they just renamed from the other 2? Are are the other 2 still floating around and it's actually FOUR bonus songs?

^^Yeah it's 4 bonus tracks in total.

Two with the digital version and the other two on the deluxe CD version. I don't think the other two are out there yet though, doubt if anyone will have received the CD orders yet.

I gotta say this album has got serious replay value for me! I've had this on repeat pretty much non stop since the day it dropped! I did check out the new Wu-Tang briefly but that is weak compared to this!

I hope Muggs comes hard like this on the upcoming Cypress Hill album!

Favourite tracks right now are Shea Stadium, Hashashin and Redrum.

Can't wait for my CD to arrive so I can check out the other bonus tracks.

since my initial hype of hearing it a few times the day it dropped i had to clip like 5 tracks off my playlist cause they were bogging the album down and im only half feeling them. still a dope album but too many appearances from hologram and action bog it down, some beat issues too.

tracks i cut (still kept in library):

1-camel crush- distortion just isnt sounding right, tempo too slow, beat comes in a bit offbeat at points, intro talking drags.

2-stret religion- beat is boring and mediocre and on top of that i cant get outkast's "2 dope boys in a caddilac" chorus out of my head when i hear that re-used sample.

3-war drums- straight up interlude level beat that has no business going on for 2:30. boring. beat lags behind a bit too and i dont need more hologram.

4-Szechuan peppercorns- wack title but beat is a bit generic and boring. action bronsman AND hologram again -both on this one-no thanks- get better guests emcees man- geesh!

5-northern blvd- boring minimal beat with lite drums. and more hologram!- dude aint that dope. i guess meyhem cant say no to his boys.

6-tension- almost deleted this one just cause of action bronsman again and listening to B-real in 2017- no thanks.

another contributing factor in me cutting those 5 tracks is that meyhem isnt even trying on a bunch of the tracks and is mediocre as hell. he was doper on silk pyramids which i think is a way doper album.

album is still dope to me. muggs is impressive on it- meyhem-not really. not top 10 material to me.

Action Bronson ruined this album. Him and Meyhem are butt buddies so it's expected. Muggs is still the business for sure. Some people don't like the gritty sampled minimal drum stuff but it's supposed to sound like that. Some of the tracks are supposed to have distorted vocals or bass.

I tried to contact SoulAssassins about different CD versions and bonus tracks and their reply was basically a copy/paste from their website's description:

"Includes two exclusive bonus tracks not available anywhere else in the world: "Champion Style" and "Frozen Angels"

It's not like I wasn't pointing a finger to ughh.com listing with same bonuses being also on the regular version... so that question they pretty much ignored - which is always confusing.. so still not sure what's up with those CD versions really...

Some of you guys are crazy, the album has only been out for around 4 days and you're judging it and clipping tracks.

I will agree that there's too many guest features on the album. I actually don't mind Hologram though. And the only track I though Action Bronson ruined was the Szechuan Peppercorn one because he's on it too much.

I could have done without the distortion on Camel Crush, but it doesn't detract from it being a dope joint.

Street Religion I like too, I was never really into Outkast back in the day so the sample isn't played out to me.

Everything from She Stadium through to War Drums is fuckin top shelf shit.

Then Szechuan Peppercorns spoils the vibe for a moment before more dopeness from Redrum onwards.

The bonus tracks are bangin too, Psychedelic Relic is hard as fuck, and those synths on Northern Blvd are nasty!!

And... Silk Pyramids is no where near as good as this album. Not even in the same league! Pyramids had zero replay value for me.


Where would you rank this amongst the other Muggs Vs. albums??? My current rating is....

1. Legend of the Mask and the Assassin
2. Pain Language
3. Gems From The Equinox
4. Grandmasters
5. Kill Devil Hills

i know what im doing. dosnt take me long to determine what songs are hurting the album for me and this album does have filler as in a couple of the beats, guest spots and actually many of meyehms rhymes for instance. i like trimming the filler. tracks still stay in the library for occasional listens but they are turds that cant be polished to me and gotta stay off the album playlist. a good thing about digital really.

if you like it all-power to you i guess or maybe not. haha

Haven't heard the one with Sick, but ranks last with the Ill Bill one and only because the mixmaster on that one sucks.

Mey Buck has at least 3 serious bangers.
