Daniel Dumile (aka MF Doom) concluded a prolific 2003 with this paranoiac collection of warped city tales, released under the alter ego Viktor Vaughn. Having relegated production duties to a committee consisting of RJD2 and relative unknowns King Honey, Heat Sensor, and Max Bill, Dumile's full attention is left for the mike. With his mush-mouthed delivery as currency, the charismatic MC delivers a phone book of impressionistic rhyme trails, barmy anecdotes, and twisted punchlines that siphon humor into the grayest scenarios. Vaudeville Villain's story-raps are just as brilliantly spun -- the immaculate "Let Me Watch" features Apani B Fly guesting as Vaughn's vestal romantic foil and ends on a note that strikes just the right balance between Vaughn's comedic and sordid qualities. Grubby and excitable, the album's production is no less superb, with RJD2's " ... Read more »

After the noisy but dream-like drift of Painful, Electr-O-Pura found Yo La Tengo in livelier and more outwardly enthusiastic form; while they had hardly abandoned their more subdued and contemplative side, as evidenced by the lovely "The Hour Grows Late" and "Pablo and Andrea," they seemed eager to once again explore the grittier textures they'd unearthed on President Yo La Tengo and May I Sing With Me with tunes like the gleefully manic "False Ending" and the bizarre horn-blasted "Attack on Love."

So, hier ist er also, ein Beitrag ganz in Muttersprache. Logisch dass das hier jetzt so den einen oder anderen etwas verwirrt, und das ist ja auch ein ganz schönes Durcheinander, aber wenn man schon über den Plan schreibt, dann sollte man das auch richtig machen. Ist wohl auch so, dass diese exzellente Wiederveröffentlichung der mittlerweile vierteljahrhundert alten Scheibe eher die Deutschsprachigen unter uns interessiert, auch wenn das natürlich schade ist, denn der Plan hätte etwas mehr Aufmerksamkeit verdient.

Ursprünglich die Filmmusik zum gleichnamigen Film, die Wiederveröffentlichung aus dem Jahr 2000 hat eine ganze Menge extra Material von R. Kirkberg's zweiten Film, "Grottenholm". Insgesamt nicht nur ein wichtiges Stück deutsches Kulturgutes, sondern auch ausserordentlich unterhaltsame 40 Minuten. Was auch immer man dem Plan so vorwerfe ... Read more »
