Synopsis

Amazon.com
Prince Paul has already proved himself as one of the best producers in hip-hop (De La Soul, Cypress Hill, Dr. Octagon, Chris Rock). Psychoanalysis proves he's also totally ill. (Er, that's a good thing.) The disc is more of a producer's sketchbook than a reliable album and is composed of scratches and skits mingled around a bizarro-world mimicking of nearly every style of urban music you can imagine, from Miami Bass ("Booty Clap"), Delta Blues ("The Bitch Blues"), and R&B ("You Made Me"). Tracks like "Beautiful Night" are so deeply twisted that it might take repeated listenings before you're in on the joke. Psychoanalysis feels familiar all the way through but is also deliberately alien, perhaps recorded just so Prince Paul can imagine the expression on your face during playback. --Todd Levin

CD Reviews

Some of the best art of the 1990's
Joshua M Lozoya | new york, NY USA | 02/07/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"this album is spectacular, the best of the sound collage records that came out in the 90's, reflecting sound-bite media, the ridiculousness of modern life, and pig-headed misogyny, all while mocking nearly every kind of urban music from the best hundred years. the editorial review here on amazon is right, however -- it might take a few listens to catch on to the joke. most are poignant, most are hilarious. the beats are also funky, the sampling layered, the production sophisticated. i've never heard the tommy boy rerelease, so i can not speak on it. this record here, however, is pretty close to perfect. tommy boy would be foolish to tamper with it too much."
