The new DJ Shadow sucks

Granted he's going in a completely new direction, but unlike the DJ Shadow I've come to know and love, it's not dark or haunting at all. He went completely Hyphy/Crunk on this one. Anyone else disappointed with this release?

I read an interview with him in scratch magazine and he was tryin to say that hes been doin hyphy/crunk kinda stuff all along its just starting to evolve now. He says hes always been down with cali artists and that this is the direction cali is going now.

Personally i think this whole hyphy movement is the worst to be brought into the rap game ever.

I dig it. More the more I hear it.

There is no "Organ Donor" equivalent on it. Y'know, one of those songs that you can just completely wind up in and then it goes BOOM, but its still good.
