This is essentially the entire Dr. Octagonecologyst album sans vocals and slightly remixed. If any other artist released an album such as this it would be considered throwaway trash -- something for the hardcore fans. But Dan the Automator's backing tracks are so fresh and original, it's actually nice to just hear the beats minus the rhymes. ~ Kembrew McLeod
