    Hehe, wow! The ranking seems to be all over the place for the four RTJ records.

    For me it's:

    RJT3/4 (can't decide yet)
    RTJ
    RTJ2

    I always believe that 3 has more "hits", but I'm totally digging the beats on number 4 right now. It's a way meaner and unpleasent record and very much needed right now. During my first listen I was mad that Zack would just be a sample but his verses are great. Can't say that about J-Ho though who is barely noticeable apart from some wailing. The song he's on is amazing though!

    A truly powerful and zeitgeist-y record! Had no idea that they would knock it out of the park like this.

    Still trying to pick up my jaw from the floor. RTJ4 surpassed all my expectations.

    Because the El-P thread started long before RtJ I believe, and i would imagine people never thought RtJ would blow up the way it did when the project first formed (I imagine El-P & Killer Mike didn't either), so it just kept staying in here bc why start a new thread that might not get any traction, ya know?

    tbf they earned a seperate thread at the latest when RTJ2 blew up the way it did.

    Also: Anyone here, that got into EL-P's music through him re-releasing his older work in the last couple months/years? How did it sound to you? Was it better/weaker than you expected from knowing him through RTJ?

    We could rename this thread to an all-encompassing one (RTJ+KM+El-P), like Steven Wilson's "catch-all" thread.

    Sorry if this is too simple a question, but do you think that the 'I can't breathe' lyric in 'Walking in the snow' was written before or after George Floyd? Such a powerful song.

    Before George Floyd, after Eric Garner...

    The sound mix is amazing, and I really like the black-and-white videos of the featured artists. Would have been cooler if they actually performed live from their homes or something, but I'm sure something like this would have been ten times harder.

    How come I knew it'd be uploaded in full so I didn't need to watch live?

    It was pretty quality. RTJ4 is not my favorite album and its good. Pulling the Pin was my favorite performance.

    And let's not forget this non-RtJ3 gem from the newest Shadow record:


    Yesterday YouTube suggested me their performance at ACL's Moody Theater, and that's where I found out about this song. I looked it up on YouTube to find the studio version, and found this gem of a music video, 4 years later! Possibly one of the best videos I've seen. I didn't see the ACL show here, so let me post it. One of the best live shows on YouTube I've seen, the crowd energy is insane! (Edit: I saw that @BRoswell posted the concert a couple pages back, but I'll repost it here because it is simply one of the most brilliant concerts I've seen...after listening to this concert with headphones on I now made it a bucket list item to see RTJ live next year, if the RATM tour happens. Funny how it works...RATM is one of the few bands in my bucket list I have not seen yet, but for me, now, in 2020, it is much more vital to see RTJ than RATM).
