Dr. Octagon - Dr. Octagonecologyst :
Central theme/narrative: the life and times of Dr. Octagon.
‰ÛÏDr. Octagonecologyst‰Ûù introduces the character of Dr. Octagon, a homicidal, hypersexual, extraterrestrial, time-traveling gynecologist, and surgeon. Dr. Octagon‰Ûªs history is detailed throughout the album‰Ûªs songs, skits, and samples.
According to Mickey Hess, author of ‰ÛÏIs Hip-Hop Dead? The Past, Present, and Future of America‰Ûªs Most-Wanted Music‰Ûù:
‰ÛÏThe album‰Ûªs beginning and ending tie together the stories of the fictional character Dr. Octagon and the rap career of Kool Keith Thornton himself: We begin with ‰Û÷3000‰Ûª and end with ‰Û÷1977,‰Ûª which purports to be an audio recording from an early rap performance by Kool Keith ‰Û_ announcing a 1977 rap show featuring ‰Û_ pioneers Grandmaster Flash, Kool Herc, the L Brothers, and the original scratch creator Grand Wizzard Theodore [sic]. The message is clear: Kool Keith is a part of hip-hop history, and even as rap moves on to the future, Dr. Octagon does not replace Kool Keith.‰Ûù
Is this Kool Keith‰Û÷s best album (outside Ultramagnetic‰Ûªs debut ‰ÛÏCritical Beatdown‰Ûù)? In a catalog as deep and diverse as Kool Keith‰Ûªs is, it may be hard to choose ‰ÛÒ but ‰ÛÏDr. Octagonecologyst‰Ûù arguably is his magnum opus.
An all-time underground favorite, ‰ÛÏDr. Octagonecologyst‰Ûù simply is a perfect album. The concept works, the album flows perfectly and the production by Dan The Automator is absolutely phenomenal ‰ÛÒ innovative, eery, spaced-out: the instrumentals provide the perfect backdrop for Kool Keith‰Ûªs trademark bizarre lyrics.
‰ÛÏDr. Octagonecologyst‰Ûù provided a new benchmark in pushing the limits of hip-hop and has rarely been surpassed since its release in 1996.
