The much talked about Danger Mouse and MF DOOM full length collaboration finally comes back! On "The Mouse And The Mask" Dangermouse builds the beats while DOOM raps, while there are guest spots from hip hop superstars Ghostface, Cee Lo and Talib Kweli. Having already produced the Gorillaz "Demon Days" LP, "The Grey Album" (his infamous Jay-Z / Beatles mash-up) and "Ghetto Pop Life" (his hugely acclaimed debut LP with Jemini), DM now teams up with MFD, also well known for just the odd one or two brilliant solo releases ("Operation Doomsday" and "MM... Food"), his work with Madlib as Madvillain, and under disguises King Geedorah and Viktor Vaughn. So, with a pedigree like that, can this duo's debut live up to expectations? You betcha!! Along with the likes of Madlib, Common, Kanye West, Outkast etc, these cats are just so far ahead of the game it's untrue!
Lex has a history of lavish packaging but this remains one of the lushest sleeves in the catalogue. Design by EHQuestionmark, the outer vinyl LP sleeve is made from thick translucent textured plastic with DOOM's mask printed on cover, and mouse ears on each side of the mask forming a pattern that looks like a Rorschach test. The inner sleeves, visible through the outer at first glance pattern based on an Ishihara test, but inside the circles in the pattern are tiny icons depicting a different disasters - climate change, acid rain, holy war, nuclear leaks.
