I feel like most of the songs have no rhythm at all, and are really random. Really only got it for RTJ.

I have loved DJ Shadow for a long time now. I have seen him live 3 times: Shadowsphere, Chicago night club (idr the name of it), & w/ Cut Chemist tribute to Afrika Bambatta. Loved all of it!!
Hardcore Encore is definitely my favorite of all his work, even if it is a collabrative production.
This album is a little slow for me. That being said, I will never miss an opportunity to see him live. Still super excited to see him during this tour.
Never stop reinventing, and see you in Boston
Long time fan, but not of this one
Not sure what happened here, but this isn't the shadow I know. This album comes across as uninspired at best and boring at worst; It's like he phoned it in.
I've been an ardent fan since 1996, but this one is a miss - totally ok since he's been 20 years of perfection otherwise.
Love some of his early work but not really diggin this.
It is an experiment of a Guy and his keyboard... Instead of cutting loose with unbridled beats, it gets overthought, choppy & confusing... If ya have the patience, it gets close to some good bang... But misses the mark... Heard nothing new- been done before...
I haven't bought a DJ Shadow album since 2003 or something, but I really enjoyed this album front to back. It almost Alex banks/modeselektor-like. The production is spectacular.
Shadow !! Incredible album.
20 years later still inventing.

The beats are ok. They are very reminiscent of death grips only without mc ride. If you're gonna try to do something that's a little avant-garde try to be different.
