At last, the official sequel to Dr. Octagon featuring Kool Keith, One Watt Sun, DJ Dexter and Princess Superstar The Return Of Dr. Octagon is the follow-up to Kool Keith?s 1996 critically acclaimed Dr. Oncagonecoloyst (Dream Works), a psychedelic hip-hop concept album about a deadly, libidinous and doped-up doctor. Return of Dr.Octagon is deeper, funkier and more spaced out than the original album. This time around Keith?s groundbreaking mic skills and schizophrenic imagination compliment the mysterious production and collaborators. Dr. Octagon has reinvented himself covering a broad lyrical range that includes everything from socially conscious sermonizing to intergalactic martian fables.

"This album was made becuase some shady record label Keith was dealing with, jerked him in his contract saying that they could make pop-dance remixes of any of his songs. Keith of course not wanting his music to be screwed with in this way tried to pull out of the deal. What is presented here is exactly what he didn't want to see, some vocals from those sessions shipped off over the internet to Europeto be remixed by wack, techno DJs Keith hadn't even spoken over the phone with, and then thrown together into an "album." Keith tried to get this release stopped for years, but the label finally slimed their way to getting it into stores. If you really are a fan of Keith don't buy this album. If you're that curious just download it for free. The real, original release of the new Dr. Octagon, Keith worked on with Fanatick, is on the way after the current letigation is cleared up. I imagine it will be called The Real Return of Dr. Octagon or something simular. Wait to buy that one and don't give money to these snakes."

Someone has been pushing the rumor that this is not legit. or intended by Keith. I guess he hates it so much he made a video for "aliens" which I saw the other day on NY Noise, which features the artist throughout and credits the label. the rumor of illegitmacy must be false, and intended to keep suckas away from the album. Keith has always been into anticommercial maneuvers --recall the subject matter of Dr. Octagynocologist. The "loyalists" leaving 1 and 2 star reviews are --refer to title of review."
Besides the fact that this is a BS record, its still whack

"If you know anything about anything, you'll know at least a little bit about the history of this messed up album, and you'll definetly know this isn't Doctor Octagon. For one thing, Doc-oc is dead, he was shot three times in the face, and for another, Doctor Octagon is a collab between Keith, Automator and Q-Bert.(Only Keith appears on this album, thus rendering this decidedly NOT Doctor Octagon) But besides the fact that these tracks are not actually official, I still picked this one up because Keith is my favorite MC in the world, and I'm always looking to get more, so any release featuring Keith in any way is a must for me.
So, putting the fact that this is a BS album aside, and reviewing it simply on quality, the verdict is: Lame.
The production on this is weak sounding, not in the least heavy and barely approaching funky, it sounds like some whack, stuck in the 80's, wanna be old school, white suburban kid, overly produced, no soul having, 20th century, entirely UN-dope stuff. The real shame is that even with the complex yet pussed out production, this might have been a salvageable record with Keith's flows on top, but the cats who produced it, chopped his vox and put them all over the place, adding all kinds of effects and not letting them naturally flow for over two lines at any point on the whole joint.
Bottom Line: This is more a record by these cats 'One Watt Sun' than it is a Kool Keith album. And one watt sun is most definetly lame."
