I gotta agree with an earlier reviewer (Donn Ronn I think) from Brooklyn. Def Jux 3 is frighteningly bad. If it wasn't for the Aes Rock track, and the track by Hangar 18, both of which are decent, this album would be f*#king hopeless. The newcomers aren't really showin us nothin. Its just alotta gums bumpin. This must be a throw-away album for El. Thats's the only explaination for the half-bakedness of it. He must have been too focused on High Water to put any real work into DJ3. I'm hoping thats all it is. Because, on the bright side, none of the Def Jux compilations have been that memorable. They've all kind of been these prompters for the solo releases, which are always better, so maybe the wackness of this album isn't anything to be worried over. I'll tell you though, I'm startin to get nervous.
