Daedelus Exquisite Corpse
- Words: Ben Bush
- Label: Mush
MF Doom speaks the truth when he says, "This beat is strictly retarded, yo/sound like it came off the late Ricky Ricardo show." Daedelus gets a lot of mileage from the contrast between his fly beats and string-soaked samples from old TV soundtracks and public domain 78s. Mike Ladd guests, describing the forlorn smell of Taco Bell as experienced by an expat returning to the US, and Jogger‘s remix has pants-wettingly good synths. Exquisite Corpse is a concept album about death-it doesn‘t sound like a showtune about getting gunned down in Vegas, gangsta-style, but more like a lullaby for dying in your sleep.
