    Their first 3 albums have individual songs I like but the production on those albums doesn't make me want to revisit them often.



    That's the kind of beat I would produce for them given a chance, but they mostly used a lot of electro/industrial sounds on the first 3 albums.

    This album is a step up in the production style. They've both always been very talented rappers, but I understand people not liking El-P's lyrical style, it's always been esoteric and he's not interested in watering down his style.

    Anyway this is the first album of theirs that I think is a good listen start to finish.

    Will listen for the beats.. Can’t lie, the lyrics lost all meaning after recent events though.

    :deadmanny:precisely.

    Its like this, I like EL-P and Killer is straight, but RTJ ran it's course with the first two albums (mainly the first one). The problem with RTJ as a whole is that they are predicable as hell. Every song has to do with the following:

    • Killer Mike threatening to punch somebody
    • El-P gibberish
    • Killer Mike saying fukk the police (:sas1:)
    • El-P gibberish
    • A guest appearance washing the fukk out of both rappers
    • El-P gibberish
    It gets tiresome and on the real, the group is safe AF compared to other rap groups that actually about what they say instead of revolutionary hustling :camby:

    Yall weird. Lol. For people who don't like rap. The fukk. These albums are the essence of hip hop. When rappers dared not to sound like everyone else. Killer Mike blackness being questioned because he urging folks to vote..smh

    I like songs here n there but Mike's raps be predictable on that ooey gooey punch you, face go kablooey. El-p has a decent verse once in a blue moon....also not into the sleepy bloopy quasi EDM aspect.

    RTJ is gym music for cac dudes and the token act at rock festivals like Pitchfork

    :ehh: They've evolved their sound alot. One of my big problems with RTJ3 was how every song was starting to become identical but El-P switched it up here.
