Liking this so far. Beats are different for DOOM, more upbeat. Of course, this means that DOOM is more off beat than he already usually is, but it hasn't really bothered me so far because its always fun to me just to hear DOOM babble on with his nonsense.
I'm liking the album as well. I see a lot of 'meh' reactions around the internet but most of it seems to be people complaining this is not Madvillainy 2 rather than talking about the actual album. Production is great as well, I honestly don't know what album these other dudes be listening to, but it probably comes down to the same thing, namely what album these other dudes wish they were listening to.
