Released March 23, 2004. Madvillainy Tracklist. The Illest Villains Lyrics. In 2003, DOOM and Madlib counterintuitively foreshadowed the release on Stepping Into Tomorrow, from Madlibs Shades of Blue: Madlib Invades Blue Note: Party people DOOM Here to let you know That I have no prior knowledge to any invasion Or Any invasion being planned or executed And I have no ties to Madlib Or any organizations affiliated. It is a characteristic MF DOOM release, with 22 tracks of varying length, including a number of interludes and sample-based skits that add depth to the storyline. DOOM appears out of nowhere at times, rapping in his usual monotone.

Текст песни: Come out to show them Like open the blues up And let some of the blues blood come out to show them Then come out to show in Hip-Hop: MF DOOM and Madlib Drop Madvillainy Album. XXL Staff. Stones Throw. 2004 : On March 23, 2004, hip-hop duo Madvillain , consisting of rapper MF Doom and producer Madlib , dropped their debut collaborative album, Madvillainy. An innovative and unabashedly different duo on the the hip-hop scene, Madvillain created an eccentric, anti-commercial brand of hip-hop with this album, one that railed against everything mainstream hip-hop music stood for. For this reason, Madvillainy is hailed amongst the greatest hip-hop album's of the new millennium. Madvillainy is DOOM and Madlib at their best, and the sum or their talents is actually greater than its equal parts. Full Review. There's plenty of reasons why Madvillainy stands out so much from another contemporary hip hop acts. Starting off, the simple presence of MF DOOM here stomps, with his instantly recognizable delivery, his humour and charisma, he gives the duo a lot of fun and color. In the other half, this is also one of my favorite hip hop records in terms of production, thanks to Madlib, he handled the sound of the album wonderfully, contributing so well to this whole cartoony, villainous vibe that. read more. 11mo

While the album itself is amazing with DOOM's lyrics and Madlib's production, from what I heard this pressing isn't the best. Not really that much of a Hi-fi pressing, loss of detail and high end frequency.
Little Devil
This is a terrible sounding pressing!? Completely inexcusable that an MP3 has higher quality sound than a (presumably) professional mastering onto wax... Makes me wonder if they even listened to the master before making? Super LO-FI, my bootlegged Exmilitary record sounds better than this. It's an awesome album and if you want to stare at a vinyl sleeve to never play it then it might be worth something to you. If you want to listen to the record though, don't expect it to sound good.
Never heard a bad pressing. All copies I have listened to were better than MP3. Maybe you just have a bad record player...
My pressing is moderately warped and has a few ticks and pops here and there. Cant quite put my finger on what it is that sounds off, The narrative sections sort of hiss at you at points with high frequencies, and overall the instrumentals/samples feel slightly muddy causing the beats to loose detail. Besides the badly mixed frequencies though, I actually enjoy the muddy gritty sounds of the samples and vocals being pitched and clashed together! Definitely gives the pressing an old school vibe, which just fits right in with the concept of the album. This could be the greatest Hip-Hop album of all time, and its pretty much taken as fact that its the greatest experimental/abstract Hip-Hop album of all time. 10/10Every time Quas jumps on a beat it sends shivers down my spine man.. Madlib really struct gold when he figured out the funny manipulated voice the character raps behind
I like DOOM’s music but I find his mask quite terrifying, so if you are reading this DOOM please stop wearing your mask it’s too scary!!
????My score:Enjoyability: 19/20Variety: 15/20Appeal/lyrics: 19/20Originality: 18/20Skills: 19/2019+15+18+19+19=90%A colorful, funky, inventive and impressive trip through twisted but appealing spaces and characters. <3!!!
Music or musical elements aren't quantifiable at all, glad you like the album though.
Agreed this pressing isn't exactly high fidelity. There is a some loss of detail/ high end frequency. Look, it's passable for sure but for the 30 odd quid I spent on it in a local store I expect more.
This pressing sounds pretty darn bad. The hard rolled off top-end + the already compressed nature of these songs make the songs sound like they're playing underwater. It's OK to play sometimes and I enjoy it but I wish they would have made a proper vinyl master.
One of the dopest hip hop collab albums ever released if not the best. Classic ????
My copy of this release has some slight warp but a very low noise floor with some occasional pops (not cleaned). The sound stage is huge with great separation. Strong bottom end and strong midrange but high frequencies are a bit soft. Overall the mix has an old school sound. A little bit canned, but in a cool way. This album grew on me quickly and I recommend this release. (Rega Planar 3, Exact 2 cart, PSE Studio SL, Linn LK85, Linn interconnects, Linn Katans - Linn Sizmik 12.45" for 2.1)
Are all the vinyl copies censored? Just noticed there's a volume dip on 'Fancy Clown' on my copy. No 'fuckin' in 'fuckin around'... Can't remember if I bought it from Stones Throw or Juno, must be the 2006 press.
As far as I've known that song was always censored for some reason (possible radio play?). I don't have the CD anymore, but I remember it was censored.
All records are cut from the music itself. So when you send the cutter your CD or reel to reel (as if!) he has to physically sit and listen all the way through whilst the needle cuts the lacquer, to make sure it doesn't go awry.
I think this cut is from the music itself, you can see it in the way Madlib cuts the vocals and pairs it to the instrumental. Or maybe you're right and I'm listening to it wrong the entire time ahhaha
Yeah censored in my copy as well, its a shame.
Never really understood why that and the Curls bar was censored. Accordian has "fuck" and "niggas," so I wouldn't say it's a censorship theme...but totally normal in every version AFAIK.
Thanks. I see what you mean, I'm missing the deliberate 'dub-out' point... A bit like Eric Idle's 'I Bet You They Won't Play This Song On The Radio' on Monty Python's Contractual Obligation Record.
Yeah. 10 words 10 words 10 words 10 words 10
I know that, but what about my question? Are all the vinyl editions censored?
That line was a joke though. Kinda like in Curls "She home all alone and tryin to get the *cricket*"DOOM has an odd sense of humour
Earlier leaked version is about a million times better than the official release, where DOOM doesn't sound like he's moments away from falling asleep... and actually spits with some passion. Still, official version is aight, but those older vocal takes were waaaay better, in my opinion.
ah the soulseek days. Had to burn 3-4 *mp3* copies of that cause I wore them out. The official album is still amazing to me though, but those leaks were one of a kind.
Disagree with you completely on that one. The leaked version sounds like a mixtape. Madvillainy sounds like a masterpiece
In the early 2000's, MF DOOM was my favorite MC and Madlib was my favorite beat producer. When this collab was announced, It was the most anticipated album for me of all time. It was at least 6 months before anymore news broke, and all of a sudden.... the album was leaked into cyber space....someone stole the album and leaked it,so DOOM and Madlib went back to square one and rewrote the whole album....I couldn't' wait any longer, I had the LP pre-ordered from sandbox automatic. When it was finally released, what more can I say...It was everything I could of hoped for in a DOOM/Madlib collab; spacey deep groove beats littered with jazz samples. Super stoney sound, like a blunt was being smoked in the studio nonstop. DOOM sounds especially inspired and it shows with his trademark flow and poetic clever lyrics....In my top 5 hip-hop albums of all time. I still have my Madvillian original promo poster released with the pre-order.
Same here. Can't remember a record like this, that fullfilled and even exceeded my superhigh expectations at that time. Stellar rapshit
Nans....The Demo was the original album. Completely rewritten and reworked to create the masterpiece we know today...obviously a DOOM newb since you had to 'google' all your information...stay in your lane son
There is no 'old album', what was stolen from Madlib's apartment was an early demo. This frustated both Madlib and DOOM, and they would only finish the record months later. I don't think that there was any 'rewriting', maybe they only took a different approach at things, and the album was finished with a different vibe.Actually, I found this in Wikipédia: ''the leak prompted DOOM to go with a slower and more relaxed flow on the final version of the album. This move has been praised by various publications, including Pitchfork, which said that it was "ultimately better-suited" than the original.''Talking Madlib's production, also from Wikipedia: ''Madlib was also asked by the label to change some instrumentals, but told them that he forgot the samples he used, in order to allow for them to remain on the album. ''So yeah, I guess there was a bit of 'rewriting'... but no, the duo didn't start the Project over.
Can i listen to the old album anywhere? I never heard about this before.
A TRUE CLASSIC ????????????????
an absolute masterpiece of a classic. really what else do you need to say? truthfully? believe the hype.
One of my favorite albums of all time. Near perfect example of abstract Hip-Hop done right.
from earth
Has ordered it from Norman Records, got horrible quality pressing two times, avoid!
that's not really norman records fault. I've ordered from them many times with no issues.
Was it the 10th anniversary press or the original one ? I have to choose between those so it would be good to know if one press is better than the other one...
love love love this is the real style
Fast Lovebird
Love his voice in this... In any of his pieces to be honest. Always dig his old skool sounds with Sub
This is what real Hip Hop sounds like, raw conscious and says 'Writtten in blood with a tooth pick' and this Album sounds just that ! Mad Lib & MC Doom don't do main stream and this Album shows how the real music makers do it on vinyl.
FYI...please do not believe the shysters who claim the "original pressing" is "out of print." The vinyl has never gone out of print, and is still available via Stones Throw. Support real hip-hop!
Actually, the "original pressing" IS out of print - if you read the "Edit Release" notes for this entry you will notice that the more recent pressings have a different run-out matrix, as documented on the Undated Repress entry which was recently submitted (specifically, OG US pressings have the "MASTERDISK" stamp in the run-out).. Good luck y'all.
For ‘Meat Grinder’, Madlib has used as his beats and bass line a sample from a pretty obscure library music track called ‘Hula Rock’ by The Lew Howard All-Stars, which was originally recorded for the Bosworth library, suggesting he might be or was at some point a library music digger. The track was also commercially released by UK library music guru Jonny Trunk, on the first record that he put out on his own label, Trunk Records, which was a compilation of tracks from the Bosworth archive which were recorded in the 60s and 70s.
Mad Lib and MC Doom combine their evil forces to bring you Mad Villain – Mad Villiany. This album may very well fully restore your faith in hip hop. Thoughtful production and rhymes give you a cohesive listening experience from beginning to end that you won’t find in mainstream rap. Much credit to Mad Lib for making this album highly listenable. Using mainly organic sounds and instruments (even an accordion!), Mad Villian has presented approachable music that remains firmly in the realm of independent (and just darn good) hip hop. Doom’s performance is a subtle mixture of serious lyrics, tongue in cheek humor, and laid back yet undeniable rhyming talent. Though the album features a few stand out tracks, (“Accordion” and “Operation Lifesaver…” are two of my favorites) I really recommend that you abstain from ignoring any part of the whole. Good albums manage to churn out hit singles, great ones deliver from the first track to the last.
