Druggy hallucinogenic extraterrestrial pornography on wax. Dr. Octagonecologyst reshaped hip-hop and opened the doors for the alternative rap explosion in the mid-nineties.
Alienating fetishist rap wasn’t new to Kool Keith but in Dan the Automator and DJ Q-Bert he found two co-conspirators that were able to bring his warped vision to full fruition, providing him with the most complimentary instrumental backing since Critical Beatdown. The album is a group effort through and through, a creepy sonic world where X-rated samples, seemingly freeform wordplay and dynamic cuts and scratches take center stage. It’s ER meets Arkham Asylum, David Lynch and Rob Black collaborating on a new series, familiar and unheard. It’s a stone cold classic and one of the greatest rap records ever made.
