The beats are AT LEAST solid (if not Timbaland or Dilla-quality), the guests are wide-ranging and did anyone else read about how it took them 4 years to get this album done? or how they got 5 different artists to come up with 5 different covers?

I saw this clip of Louie C.K. on the Conan show talking about how everything's amazing and no one's happy! This is a perfect example of the "most spoiled generation" not appreciating what they have. Before everyone was downloading music back in the early 00's, this would have been out of stock regularly at most independent record stores (remember those, kids?).

Let's start with track 1 and move down. Intro, good. 2 tracks with David Byrne and some other people, gets it off to a good "let's stop worrying about who has what and get into the music". The next two tracks have guest spots from Wu-Tang members and some other reliable members of the hip-hop community. Ohhh, wow... there's so many guest on here, but I noticed that some of them guest on tracks that follow the other one they guested on - that's called establishing a sense of con-tin-u-it-y and on proper albums (remember those?), it's a plus.
