Review

Review Text A reissue of Jakki da Motamouth's 2004 debut, the 28-track God vs. Satan feels hugely overstuffed. It's four and a half minutes into the album, following an a cappella statement of intent and the first of 12 between-song skits setting up the album's main premise, before the first actual song starts; that song, "Radiofriendly," turns out to be a minimalist blend of seemingly freestyle rhymes over a bass-synth pulse and a deliberately tinny, crackly string sample that would be great at two minutes long but drags horribly at twice that. That's the way the album goes throughout: Jakki da Motamouth has a flow that's just about good enough to back up all but his most outlandish boasts, but he seems to be in dire need of an editor, both to separate out the bad ideas and to shape and guide the good ones. With about a third to a half of the more repetitive material excised (which wouldn't include all of the skits, which for once are an interesting, integral part to the album's flow), God vs. Satan would be twice as powerful as it is. ~ Stewart Mason
