  • Good abum & Excellent cover
  • Found this in a thrift store today, I'm loving El Cid and Swords!
  • better than Leftism imo. Also El Cid gets way too few praise.
  • Somewhere in this house is my CD. I need to find it and transfer some songs to the MP3 player. It's rare to find good music like this theses days.
  • Every time I stumble back upon this album, and I think "Wow, this album was made thirteen years ago". I just can't convince myself.
  • this album is timeless
  • In its day, Leftism was the better album imo. It doesn't hold up today though. It sounds dated now. Rhythm & Stealth could have been made yesterday.
  • I agree with all the opinions putting this one highier than Leftism. Their first album is a brakethrough and is revolutionary but this one is pure masterpiece. As galbi said : no weak tracks. Rhythm and Stealth is as sharpest razorblade.
  • Way better than Leftism, and probably my favourite electronic album ever. No weak tracks, pure gold from start to finish.
  • Takes a while to get into it but it's a very good album. Not on the same level as Leftism albeit, but it has some kill tracks such as Dusted, Phat Planet, Chant of a Poor Man, Rino's Prayer etc. Not as bad as some people say, but i guess after Leftism it's a hard act to follow. If it was from anyone else it would have been critically reviewed very well.
