Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: MF Doom (rap vocals).
  • Additional personnel: Count Bass D (rap vocals); 4-Ize, Mr. Fantastik, Angelika .
  • A rare release under his proper moniker after a string of alter-ego efforts, MF Doom's solo tour de force originally appeared in 2004. Culinary arts, digestive misadventures, and nourishment in general are themes that run throughout the 15-deep tracklist. Count Bass D, Madlib, and PNS provide supplemental beatwork and Mr. Fantastik, Angelika, 4ize, and Count Bass himself lay down guest verses.
  • With production that leans heavily on easy-listening loops, obscure TV and radio program samples, and the underground antihero's trademark wildly inventive lyricism, MM...FOOD is stylistically closer to his 1999 debut OPERATION: DOOMSDAY than other more recent works.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (p.87) - "[He] flips countless edible metaphors over hard-hitting, jazzy beats, while never devolving into pointless parody." - Grade: B+

Uncut (p.113) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "A cut 'n' paste collage of instruments, skits and rhymes, MM..FOOD is alive with lurid comic book nostalgia and startling wordplay."

Uncut (p.121) - 4 stars out of 5 - "Doom proves himself once again to be a multi-tasking superhero: an eloquent, conscious and technically gripping rapper; and a producer who can revitalise the cut'n'paste fundaments of hip hop."

Alternative Press (p.104) - "Only MF Doom could've turned such a silly subject into an absolutely brilliant piece of work."

Alternative Press (p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[An] amazing supervillain team-up with producer/fellow underground icon Madlib."

The Wire (p.62) - "Doom counts among the few working hiphop producers who make worthwhile sound collages, deploying self-mythologising sci-fi snippets but reacting to them on the mic as well..."

The Wire (p.73) - "Lyrically, MM..FOOD is the best of three albums released by Daniel Dumile this year."

Vibe (p.84) - 3 1/2 discs out of 5 - "[T]he sample-driven selections are sure to make comic-crazed turntablists salvate..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[T]he apotheosis of Dumile's idiosyncratic lo-fi trash-art: hilarious, stoned hip hop drooling with ideas..."
