This album slaps hard. Haven't felt this level of wicked clown energy since 2002. 

The only caveat(s) for me are the lines "The rich have got it no better than you; Those meant to be screwed best believe are screwed", which honestly feels like a betrayal of Carnival of Carnage. It preaches a belief that we know isn't true. Plenty of evil people have gotten away with bullshit and plenty of completely innocent people have been tortured, obstructed, scapegoated and killed. So I don't know what they were thinking of in regards to those lines.

But other than that, best album in at least a decade. They really went all in on this one; it hits harder than the actual Jokers Card (at least for me). It kind of feels like the album was laced with both the Original Deck and Second Deck in regards to sound, production, lyrics and energy. Absolutely love it. Pleasantly surprised. I usually expect EPs to be throw-aways to make money off of unused content, but ICP usually violates that expectation anyway.  

That line means the rich won't have it any better in death than you, even though you might have had a worse time in life than the rich.  It's saying "everybody dies and everybody gets what's coming to them."  As if to say "all the money in the world isn't going to buy salvation."

I enjoyed most of it. I agree with it being much more solid with the mixing. Both sound great on this EP. Shaggs even dropped a little double time verse. I only got one real solid listen so far and I was pretty stoned. Production on here had me zone out from time to time. I think I'm gonna grab a hard copy

Awesome EP. Amazing they are still going @ such a high level this deep into their careers.

The production was so much more consistent than YYB & feels more cohesive w/o the tags/trap beats popping up.

Sounds like they are having fun making music & are in a good headspace. The hungry like a wolf cover is brilliant/classic icp humor

Yeah I think they really nailed it on this one. People love the carnival beats, and this EP hast he highest concentration of it we've heard in a long time. I think Kuma did most of the tracks, and I always gravitate towards the songs he produces and I don't know know why they don't roll with him more on Joker Cards outside of a song or 2. 

I don't care for the Hungry Like The Wolf cover. I wonder if they had any idea Twiztid already did the same thing like 2 years ago. But regardless of that, it's just kind of silly and I don't see myself listening to it ever again. The Ain't No Time remix is fine, but it's another one that I don't see myself returning to.

Gonna finally play it in full tonight, after some decompression from work. I liked what I heard from the first two tracks before.

Agreed about Kuma. He is tight on his beats yet adventurous. I love his music. More-a dat, please.

I kind of wish I had a physical copy, but alas. At least according what I've found on the internets, Shaggy the Airhead actually has the most credits on this EP. 

Wicked Vic by Shaggy the Airhead

Send in the Clowns by Devereaux 

Clown Bounce by Shaggy The Airhead

Mutilator by Kuma 

Hyde Park Pedaler by Shaggy the Airhead

Hungry Like the Wolves by Mike P. 

Aint no Time remix by Kuma (though that one was obvious probably cause he name's in the title) 

Still though, I maintain that if Mike Clark isn't working with the clowns, then Kuma is the next best. He's never disappointed me yet

The intro reminds me of, strangely enough, "The Ringmaster's Word" track. Which popped into my head earlier, even stranger. 

Great EP

My one and only true critique of the EP is that it's too short. A serviceable intro and a remix of a previously released song, so it's really like five tracks. Of those five, I feel Send in the Clowns is the weakest, but even that's not a bad tune. 

I just kind of want a remastered version of YYB now

Oh interesting, where'd you find the credits? I believe you, but I am surprised. Mutilator being Kuma makes perfect sense and I knew Hungry Like The Wolf had to be Mike P, he's always their go-to for the covers and stuff. He did his job perfectly, just was a wack idea. 

And yeah, if it's not MEC then I do think Kuma captures the vibe the best. But props to Seven and Mike P as well, both have obviously done some great work for ICP. For Kuma, one of his most underrated works was Red Moon Howl. And then like for Seven that remix of The Witch he did as well as the title track for "Phantom" are amazing. So if they were to stick more with those type of beats between the 2 of them, that'd be some prime ICP right there.

Those were the credits listed on the Genius page for the album, which was about all I could find when searching for the production credits. 

Also ICP had Kuma on their twitch channel last night and he expressed really wanting to produce all of the 6th card so I'm really fucking hoping that happens.

Mike Clark has to produce the 6th but if he doesn't I'd rather kuma over the trap producers they have now

Kuma primarily. With a splash of Esham. Also, Mike P. 

Or, just MEC.

Cool shit man. 

And yeah I'm also of the mind that it seems like they really should try to make it happen with Mike E Clark since he didn't do the original 6th and it would only seem right. But, if that doesn't work out for whatever reason, would love to see Kuma come through with it. And that's no disrespect towards Mike P and the others, I just would really like to have them do the next one with one producer as opposed to the approach they've been doing for a while of having multiple producers on each.

Are y’all actually playing this on repeat? I listened to it once and was over it. You keep focusing on who is making the beats but ICP just aren’t bringing it like they used to. Too much time with the wife/daughters/girlfriend, etc. In their prime they were fucking zeroed in and were super restrictive in their approach. We need the patriarchal barbarian ICP back. They’re nutless suburbanites now.

Strongly disagree. If you're not feeling it, that's fair enough, but in my opinion both the clowns brought it on this one

Yeah, man, it's the women's fault! Fuckin triflin hoes with their Gucci bags and cake batter lipstick covered in tampoons!

So you feel that the clowns have lost their edge, perhaps? Perhaps J should go off his pills again like he did in preparation for "Hell's Pit"? Where he started having panic attacks and seeing people that weren't there?

Or maybe they should both go full "Method Actor".... give away all their money so as to properly become true scrubs, true Floobs, even! They could find some sewer skanks and move right into that big pipe on Zug Island. Drink old forty bottles full of Bloody Mary. Intercourse ONLY with morbidly obese and/or deformed females (also, barrels of toxic waste if in a pinch). Spray voodoo gang tags all over the Masonic temple where they filmed "Hate Her to Death".  Then they should start terrorizing that rich kid that J wrote about in the book, even though he is a grown man now. Then they can reintroduce "faggot" to 70% of their recorded tracks. Hell, go find Twiztid and have them drop a few "niggas" here and there for good measure. Alex Abiss will return and Legs Diamond will sing. Some songs to be released will include "Still Blackin Yo Eyes".. "A Return to the House of Mirrors".. "Chicken Huntin' (Old School Sludge Mix)" and "Fatter Sweatier Betty (Varicose Vein Mix)". They will use non-diet Faygo at their shows (only Michigan and Ohio) because who cares about the sugar ruining sets and audio equipment, we need authenticity!!!

Backwards, not forward, but BACKWARDS!!!

 

Just joking around. But yeah, I think they're sounding pretty damn good lately. I couldn't entertain an argument that this is their weakest era lyrically or musically. That belongs to the Missing Link era, even though I largely enjoy some of those tracks.
