Album Description
A new classic is born from Hip Hop's most outrageous and unpredictable artist, Kool Keith (Black Elvis, Dr. Octagon, Dr. Dooom). "Nogatco Rd." is Keith's most inventive and highly anticipated album in years. Complete with UFO conspiracies, alien autopsies, coded space raps, and an amazing array of some of the most original tracks in years. Nogatco Rd. features strong and intricate Hip Hop production that is dusted with a dabble of hard rock, electronic and celestial soundscapes. The "Nogatco Rd." album is also an Enhanced CD that is loaded with features including a 50's style Sci-Fi mini-movie starring Kool Keith (viewable on a computer CD-ROM drive). Other features also include a digital comic book, digital photo album and other treats. Produced by Iz-Real (of the acclaimed MF Doom/Viktor Vaughn release "Venomous Villain"), "Nogatco Rd." also features guest appearances from progressive Hip Hop stars Sage Francis aka Xual Zan and the king of hard hitting avant-garde Hip Hop, Sole (of Anticon). Talented beatmakers DiViNCi, Jahson, Mr. Hill, EDK, Carl Kavorkian, Broken Klutch and D. Watcher also contribute. Welcome to the world of Hip Hop music's most enigmatic figure; a sinister, scientific Hip Hop genius known as Mr. Nogatco aka Kool Keith; reborn in rare form.

Almost perfect album! Kool Keith does it again.

"My only gripe is that it is too short. but other than that- what a masterpiece. Kool Keith is one of my favorite underground artist- but as of late- his albums have been lacking. not his one. This release more than makes up for it. read the description for album info.....just buy it! Hip Hop the way it is supposed to be. entertaining and fun."

"....the truth being that Nogatco Rd. is a modern day hip-hop classic from the master of outer space himself, Kool Keith.

I really love how on this album Kool Keith finally decided to break away from his recent lull in creativity (ie: Lost Masters 2, Clayborne Family(s), etc.) and return to FREAKIN' OUTER SPACE! The result (with great production help from Iz-Real) makes for an interesting, dark, hilarious and unique piece of music. I really think that this album will stand the test of time just as much if not MORE than Octo...yep I said it.

Now, you will ask why then did I rate Nogatco 4 stars instead of 5? Well the honest truth is that not every track is a musical gem... There are like a couple of tracks that are "skippers".... Especially the metal riffed Black 37, though MY opinion of that particular track is biased being that I HATE HEAVY METAL... But the other track in which Iz-Real samples some electric guitar (Big Adventure) is suprizingly pretty tite.

Well enough with me trash talkin...Sorry Keith, I still love ya mang!... The other tracks on this album are fck'n BANGIN!! The levels of eeire production and outerworldly lyrics are balanced like two 800lb women on opposite sides of a sea-saw. In other words this album sounds great, like another reviewer said, it really BUMPS on a nice sound system. I can't get enough of these seamless tracks: Bionic Fuse, Night Flier(force field), CELESTIAL**, Different, and of course LIVE DISSECTION** (w/ Sage Francis and Sole). The verse that Sage Francis spits is sooo sick that I'm gonna have to go buy, yes BUY one of his albums....I think I already have the "Im sick of waiting tables" LP somewhere... Anyways,

My homie Ahmed gave me NOGATCO Rd. (burned) and its sooo good that I'm gonna support Mr. Space Cadet himself and purchase it! BTW: Ive seen part of the videos that come on the enhanced CD and theyre freakin' spooky! haha... Well enough of my blabbering, pick up Nogatco Rd TODAY, you will NOT BE DISSAPOINTED...SERIOUSLY.

PS: This one goes right next to Lost in Space, Doc Oc, and Dr. Dooom in my personal Kool Keith library....don't pass it up... 4 and a half stars outta 5!"

"Every track is an adventure, both in sound and thought. Featuring hidden messages, codes and keys to the mysteries of human existence. A weird scientist travels the earth in search of aliens, both living and perished. Fossils of extraterrestrial vertebrates are a massive find, until the living, breathing creatures are located. Awesome release!"
