Madvillainy 2 The Madlib Remix was previously only available as part of the Madvillainy 2 Boxset and a small batch of white label pressings (which flew out of the Lab with the quickness), but now it finally sees a proper reissue complete with comic book. The original Madvillain was one of the illest collabs of all time, with MF Doom arguably at his amoeba genius prime, mixed with the unpredictable stoned beat aesthetics of Madlib. For the remix, Madlib revisits the project and gives fresh beats to the classic collab effort (apparently he made it for personal headphone listening right before a 10 hour flight to Tokyo). Obviously dope! This double LP vinyl version also comes with a free digital download of the entire album.
Monkey Suite , a new addition to the album, originally released on the Stones Throw compilation Chrome Children, is left seemingly intact. Its a great song, with tight rhymes about keeping it real overtop a glitch-y beat, and a surprising to find on the album. Figaro remix No Brain is chosen to open the album (after a brief intro), as opposed to the original, which was a mid-album highlight. Its much more peppy and upbeat and, in keeping with the albums tradition, brings the focus away from Dooms great rhymes. The beat is a great one, and has a lot going on, making the fact that Doom has been up-staged completely forgivable. All Caps remix, titled Never Go Pop , brings in a jazzy-piano loop and a subdued drum beat and works very well. But in general, the tracks where I dont recognize the original right away, I prefer to the ones where I do. When listening to a remix of a song where I dont recognize Dooms verses, I dont compare it to the original, and thus can appreciate it more.
However great Madlibs new beats, many of which revolve around a lot of horns and still more of the typical glitchy samples Madlib is known for, are, its almost impossible for the new songs to compete with the old ones, and thats the curse of Madvillainy 2: The Madlib Remix .

This beat is sicker than the original song, NICE.
