JJ DOOM / Key To The Kuffs [2012]

Alternative hip-hop artists MF DOOM and Jneiro Jarel colloborate under the moniker JJ DOOM on 2012's Key To The Kuffs
Like a love letter to Britain, DOOM and Jarel deliver lines making references to British culture using genuine cockney slang over creepy beats & rhythms that creak back & forth between sludgy dancehall crashers to abstract chillout vibes.  Enlisting the aid of Damon Albarn and Portishead's Beth Gibbons, I think I was expecting a bit more, considering the strength of DOOM's previous projects.  Instead I found it a bit of a disappointment with it's repetitive nature and lack of bringing anything new to the table.  Not to say it's bad, it's just considering it's DOOM, my expectations were raised a bit too high.
