Really amazing album. Probably one of my favorite collabs ever. Strange Ways is a great song, and the end of America's Most Blunted is just win.

Doom is the one who mixes in the comicbook/whatever samples

if you're digging this, check out Quasimoto (another Madlib project) and Percee P!

The track "Raid" is a standout on this album, in my opinion, yet doesn't really get its due props. Peep it. Well, peep the whole damn thing-- you won't be disappointed. Great album.

Raid? It's a solid track, but definitely not stand out. The piano line is a little repetitive.

Quasimoto! I love that s***. Get The Unseen but be forewarned - it's not for everyone. I don't think many people could find any flaw with the beats and samples. Madlib is truly a mad genius when it comes to production and creating the perfect beats for his songs. However, it is certainly abstract hip hop; supposedly Madlib tripped on shrooms for a week while he came up with/produced the album, and that wouldn't surprise me in the least. That said, it is my absolute favorite Madlib album, and everyone that likes Doom/Madlib should give it a listen.

I've been meaning to listen to The Unseen since early this decade. I don't know why I keep putting it off.

Definitely give it a listen. I have to admit it took me a couple spins to get into it but once I did I loved it.

Haha I was listening to it when I logged in and saw the review of Madvillainy. But like Janszoon said, it might take you a while to get accustomed to it; definitely go in with an open mind. Also, I believe being in a, um, altered state of mind greatly enhances the music, but it's definitely not necessary to enjoy it.

Release year is 2004 .. you should include it in your review. Otherwise great work.
