I'm curious what you guys think madlib's best work is?

He has produced tons of stuff and i only own a few, which are: The Unseen, Perseverance, Madvillainy, JayLib and The Beat Konducta Vol. 1-2.

I need to get more of his stuff, but don't wanna download everything because when i download a lot of music, i don't listen. When i buy a CD i actually give it a good listen.

sounds like you are into the rap music, so I would say "Further Adventures..." would be a sure shot...should keep you busy for a while too...

Thanks guys, but this is not just about what albums i should get though. I just want to see what stuff he's done that you thought were his best work and hopefully the thread will develop into something about the different music madlibs put out. So i can get a clear idea what i should be checking out.

Maybe i went about it the wrong way.

well, to get real specific,

theres a track (i think its unreleased) called "we on point" that is a must hear in my opinion. that beat is seriously hard.

his beat on ras g's beats and the abstract truth (@ 14:00) is way nice.

"bluffin'" on the unseen is one of my all-time faves.

theres this quas 7 inch (i think its called "the front") that i think is pretty brilliant (both sides).

"yo yo affair" has a nice beat....

in my opinion, his YNQ and related jazz stuff is alright, but ive always been a bigger fan of his beats

I'd say his most cohesive works you should get would probably be Beat Conductor EP and BK 5-6.

The most enjoyable albums from him that you should get are (imo) Further Adventures, BK 5-6, Lootpack, and some Declaime stuffs.

I didn't mention any YNQ cause you said you weren't all that interested in it, and left out the ones you already have.

Madlib's best work, that's a good question, hard to answer, for sure.

I will say, in no particular order :

-His remix of J.Dilla - The $

-"Another Getaway" on Beat Kondukta in India

-"Mystic Bounce" on "Shades Of Blue"

-Madvillain - All Caps

-Quasimoto - Astronaut

-Quasimoto - Money Hungry Bitch

And others I don't remember.

Mind Fusion is, in short, volumes of mixes/remixes done by Madlib. You can find some of them at Dusty Groove, Amazon or Fat Beats, but some are pretty hard to find. Ebay is your best bet if you can't find them in online stores.

There are 5 volumes as of now, but I have heard somewhere (maybe here, ST email? I dunno) that more volumes are coming soon.

I really dig the DJ Rels album he did.

night driving through the highways of los angeles to "theme for a broken soul" were some good times.

Nah, i open-minded enough to listen to any of his stuff. It's just that his got so much stuff out, i'm trying to figure out what to buy first and what to check out later.

I'm a fan of 9th Wonder and i own every single thing he put out (except the Black Is Back album). I want to do the same with Madlib soon. ;)

I think the Quasimoto shit is his finest acheivement so far. The concept is genius.

I'm trusting God for a Madlib and Blu colab.

You should check out YNQ Angles without edges, Shades of blue (blue note records), Blunted in the bombshelter mix.. those are my favorite Madlib albums.. Get your hands on one of those Madlib Aliases shirts and research all the different aliases he made music with. You cant go wrong with any of it. Maybe this video will inspire you!!

The first Lootpack album is a great way to get into Madlib's shit. It's real party positive and funky

Thanks for the recommendation. I've ordered FAOLQ, looking forward to listening to that. Either Shades of blue or the first YNQ will be my next Madlib CD i get.

I heard that album, but didn't get into it apart from three tracks. It's been a while since i heard it though.

lots of different opinion here - thats good.

i reckon for over all album-perfection my vote(s) go to:

DUDLEY PERKINS - "a lil light" (doesn't really sound like anything else!)
MADVILLAIN (flows perfectly with a large portion of my fav madlib beats all in one place)

i would say the first QUAS album, but only if its the instrumentals - - i used to love them, but the helium raps grate on me a bit now.

loot pack sound pieces and the lost tapes

decalime and so it is said-- some dope ass kankick beats on here too

sound directions-loved every second of this album

his saturday morning mix tape volume two

and ive slowly grown to like further adventures more than the unseen, but the instrumentals are liked equally.

theres more but im a smoke a bleez and throw on sound directions
