    Album is great so far.

    Haven't been impressed with anything i've heard from Tech N9ne since All 6's and 7's but I gotta say, this album is BANGING.

    Only a very few songs are good, the rest is meh. "Planet" is much better.

    I've been off Tech's music for the better part of a decade now but pleasantly surprised by this. Might be his best outing since All 6's & 7s imo. It sounds like he's actually having a bit of fun again and not taking himself so seriously (the title track sounds like something that could have been on Everready). The album length thing is so f---ing annoying though, there's still way too much filler. His entire discography is 60% filler at this point.

    someone tell tech n9ne to stop, its painful how bad and filler every album is, at this point in his career and for the last 5 albums hes only been good for 3-4 sad songs at the end of each album and thats literally all

    i could compile about one good album worth of those, he wastes so much time with 20+ song albums filled with 95% filler

    The title track sounds fine! The beat is fun. What other songs are worth listening to?

    seems he starts his latest albums strong. they drop in middle and normally the last 2 or 3 songs are good. Storm did it, Planet did it (other than Fresh Out. i hate that song), and now here.

    do one more dark album like Anghellic or KOD to call it a career. no more collabos. or go for another Everready.

    i still buy techs albums cause I'm a fan and support artists. but yeah . these "half" albums are annoying.

    N9na, Hit the Ground Runnin, Like I Ain't, I Caught Crazy are all pretty cool. I'd recommend checking out the whole album (only if you're a Tech fan lol), its worth a listen

    I'm not lol 10 years ago I was listening to Einstein, Low, Freaky ,Strange and some other cuts I forgot the name of but his flow is most of the time the definition of boring rapping to me
    Thanks for the suggestions!

    Tech's output has been very up and down (more down than up) but he's got some gems in his catalog. And as corny as he may be you can't deny his flow is probably one of the best of all time, right up there with the Pun, Bone Thugs, etc. Even all these newer lyrical spiritual Joyner Lucas/Hopsin types don't have the same ability to ride a beat anywhere near as well as Tech. He's a natural. And despite the fact that his writing can be very, very bad, sometimes its just fun to listen to him go ballistic with the syllables. His beat selection is usually on point too.

    Idk if its just nostalgia but Everready was goat. If you're interested in getting into Tech, I highly recommend checking it out, just dumb, high energy fun s---. Misery Loves Kompany was a solid label compilation before they started getting overwhelmingly corny. His biggest commercial success so far was All 6's & 7's, which was also alright but like all his albums it suffers from a crazy high volume of filler. Some great music on there too though. The songs you mentioned were from his debut AngHellic which is actually also pretty good if you're looking for a more old school sound.

    I disagree. I don't even remember liking one track from that album lol.
    It does have a lot of filler like most of his album. But this one has more good songs than any of his albums since All 6's and 7's imo

    Perhaps the most unique writer in the history of french litterature, the furious Christian and beautiful human being Léon Bloy. Unfortunately I think his love for disappeared and invented french words makes him untranslatable (is that a word?)

    haven't liked the recent Tech stuff I've heard, certain albums I haven't even listened to..but I'm enjoying this one so far, haven't finished it yet but I like n9na and like i ain't at least. I sort of like sink, it sounds really good for sure but not digging Tech's verses as much as I want to..

    On a unique note, as a huge Pac fan I love that there's a few mentions of him on here.. 'now i'm zonin' bumpin Makaveli...' :blunt:
