Verified Purchase. Ok album,love the tracks agent orange and the soundtrack but not as good as high and mightys home field advantage,air force 1,smut peddlers porn again or eastern conference vol. Great album. Bit of filler but rhymes and production are perfectly suited.
The album isn't as great as I last remembered it, it does have some fairly weak tracks. Worth purchasing. One person found this helpful. Amazing album. Being a EC fan, this album was one of the most highly anticipated of Usually with such albums you can be a little disappointed, not with this one. After such a long wait it delivered.
I'd have to say that Cage isn't for everyone, if you're a well-rounded Hip-Hop fan then you'll enjoy this. The Weathermen Leak Bros.

Both artists had ridiculously awful childhoods scarred with drug and physical abuse - Keith had it worse since both parents died of suicide and overdose. But Keith made a comeback of sorts with his old band Life of Agony while remaining true to his more experimental tendencies. Plus, his extended family and Brooklyn neighborhood gave him sufficient perspective that he never had the need to go down the "the left hand path".
Instead he took the subway. Good work. Not that much of a Cage fan, haven't really gotten into his work yet - but I was disappointed to see Necro embroiled in the fallout. Everyone always bangs out about Tyler yes, him again biting Eminem, but Cage deserves the credit really, as it owes more of a debt to him. And the word 'fuck'. Where would Tyler be without the word 'fuck', or 'fucking' to add some rhythm to those awkward lines?
Interesting information. I never was TOO much into Cage but some of his stuff has caught my ear. Maybe time to look into him a little more. And lol at what Tile Grout said.
Max you been surprising me with your reviews interested to see what's going to happen next. Rarely exceptional, but very enjoyable straight through.
VenomMenace: thanks, and nice blog you've got by the way. My career and no, I'm not a social worker, law enforcement or psychiatrist, although these are noble professions despite what KRS-One thinks has led me to encounter hundreds of youth handicapped with upbringings that would curdle Cage's milk.
Although some became their own version of Cage, or the even more self-absorbed Tyler the Creator: morbid and destructive, most did not. It's refreshing how in the real world even the most drug-addled, abused, and deprived kid will eventually quit with the navel-gazing and move on - grappling with their issues all the way, but moving on with lives equally creative and purposeful. Fuck Cage and Tyler the Creator.
The production laid down on Movies for the Blind is absolutely brilliant. Occasionally you get sounds of haunting ambience and menacing, orchestral music with the frequent use of samples and such.
Each and every producer featured on Movies gets to showcase their signature style while never over shadowing the main focus of the record. Movies for the Blind is not exactly the most consistent record.
If anything, this debut effort from Cage should show his astounding rapping abilities, not his abilities to pigeonhole his sound.
Movies for the Blind is a fantastic debut effort that should be checked out by fans of early Eminem, Horrorcore, or just rap in general.

It sucks that his best albums aren't available digitally and might soon be forgotten because of it. He said when he was promoting Depart from Me that he didn't want to return to shock rap and that he no longer wanted to make "music for assholes.
While I love this album, I also like that most of Cage's albums have a distinct sound. His last album kind of blends all of his phases together - wannabe gangsta, horrorcore, backpacker, emo - into something that is more satisfying with each listen. Cage is kind of weird because like you said, he said he didn't want to return to shock rap, and then he goes off to do this Sam Hill stuff a few years later, and I totally get that your opinions and goals can change, but I remember reading him dismissing "Movies for the Blind" for the edgy lyrical content and then just a few months ago, he said he never did.
I remember an MTV News interview with him where he distanced himself from his early stuff. I could probably find it. I enjoyed Depart from Me for what it was, but it seemed like he was trying to win over Fallout Boy fans and failed because that type of music was on its way out. I think a lot what he says depends on whether or not he's sober.
Last time I saw him, I'd have to say he wasn't sober. The level of wordplay and storytelling is unbelievable. Plus the album has such a unique feel sonically and aesthetically that I think is very hard to come by in rap in general.
A must listen if you're a fan of early Eminem, Danny Brown etc. The comparison to Eminem will always be there, especially with this album, but whereas I love the Marshall Mathers LP, I understand Eminem was just saying shit to piss people off, but this album is uniquely incredible because I can actually believe that Cage actually believed and felt everything he says on this album.
He was crazy and had a genuinely fucked up life. What's the ironic Em sample? This is one of my favourite albums but I haven't listened to it in a while and I don't remember noticing that. So he does! That's really cool. Being very young when these albums come out, I was under the impression that Movies for the Blind was older. That's really bizarre for me to suddenly recognise. Oh yeah I know about that, I mean of course I heard the Eminem lines themselves.
I just didn't notice the sample in that song before. Dude has legit been through a lot. I may have to check this project out.
