Dr. Octagonecologyst

Album Summary

Dr. Octagonecologyst is the debut solo studio album by American rapper and Ultramagnetic MCs member Kool Keith, released under the alias Dr. Octagon. Originally titled Dr. Octagon, it was released on May 7, 1996, on Bulk Recordings in the United States and Mo' Wax in the United Kingdom. The album was later reissued with a different track listing by DreamWorks Records in 1997 under the title Dr. Octagonecologyst. The album was produced by Dan "The Automator" Nakamura and featured the work of turntablist DJ Qbert. KutMasta Kurt provided additional production work. The artwork for Dr. Octagonecologyst was drawn by Brian "Pushead" Schroeder. Dr. Octagonecologyst introduces the character of Dr. Octagon, a homicidal, extraterrestrial, time-traveling gynecologist and surgeon. The album's distinctive sound fuses genres such as psychedelic music, trip hop and electronic music. Thornton's lyrics are often abstract, absurd, and avant-garde, using surrealism, non-sequiturs, hallucinatory psychedelia, and horror and science-fiction imagery, as well as sexual humor, absurdist/surrealistic humor, and juvenile humor. The unique sound and lyrics of Dr. Octagonecologyst inspired a wave of alternative music by underground hip hop artists such as Company Flow, Black Star and Jurassic 5.Kool Keith's lyrics and Nakamura's production were highly praised, as was DJ Qbert's innovative scratching. Dr. Octagonecologyst has since been ranked as one of the best hip hop albums of the 1990s. The character of Dr. Octagon has also appeared in Kool Keith projects like First Come, First Served (1999) and Dr. Dooom 2 (2008), both of which contain tracks in which Octagon is murdered by Dr. Dooom, The Return of Dr. Octagon, Moosebumps: An Exploration Into Modern Day Horripilation and Space Goretex. Kool Keith later stated that the album sold around 200,000 copies without any major promotion or marketing budget.

This contains some of the most remarkable hip hop I've ever heard. It's uneven for sure, and it's yet another rap album that seems to have a duration of two weeks, but these quibbles pale when held up against the sheer weirdness herein. Full of eccentric sci-fi and kooky non sequiturs, I found myself straining to hear what the next oddball lyric would be. Finally, 'Earth People' is a hell of a bop, that synth is fucking sick!

Album literally opens by playing audio from a porn scene with a low-effort beat playing over it. Don't know how this is on the list. "Earth People, New York to California, Earth People, I was born on Jupiter" is a line that gets repeated over and over in a song, like it's just not good. I'll give it a point for the fact that he's trying to rap about science, so at least it's something a bit different, but still really juvenile stuff. I'm Destructive was actually pretty good.

I actually bought this album around the time it came out and I 100% guarantee it was mostly due to that Pushead art work. I’m trying to think now of where I would have even heard a song off of this thing at the time. They weren’t playing it on the radio and there was no internet. I must’ve read about it in Alternative Press or some shit. Who knows. But, man, my instincts were right! This is still a ton of fun and super listenable. Now excuse me, I have to go call 1-800-PEEPEE5-1-DOODOO.

Flow's out of control, writing's weird as fuck but funny and pretty smart at times - did someone say non sequitur? Production is big trip hop/avalanches sound. Compellingly off putting, upsetting and unsettling. Can't stop listening. Have I been possessed? What a disturbingly intriguing experience. Don't mind me I'm diving in for a second listen, if I'm not back in 1hr 5min send a search party

My favorite kind of hip hop is weird, off-center hip hop that sounds great which is the perfect way to describe this. Kool Keith, Dan the Automator and DJ Qbert really hit my sweet spot. I'm giving it 5 stars notwithstanding the very creepy "A Visit To The Gynecologist"

Damn, this was an amazing album! First thing that I must talk about is the production, since its probably the best part about it. Shit like the violin and the small peddling beats on "Blue Flower" is just amazing to hear. The vinyl scratches are also a great touch, and I'm noticing that most rap albums from the 90s had them. The theme of this album is also cool, since you can hear Dr. Octagon talks about operating people in the tracks and skits. Shit like him saying that they should grab the wires under the water sounds like something a crazy scientist would say, and "halfalligatorsharkhalfman" sounds like the name of a cheesy B-Movie. The cover art of this album is also great. It looks like something that you'd see from a Marvel comic in the 90s and the fact that he is holding a skull, clipper (I forgot the name) and microphone is a great touch. It makes you really get what the entire album is about. Dr. Octagon does also have an amazing design. With the sunglasses, gloves and face mask on, you can't really tell that he is a skeleton. The black doctor outfit is also amazing, since it shows that he isn’t a regular doctor. Favourite track would have to be "Blue Flower". Not only does it have the best production on the entire album, but it's also just fun to listen to. Worst track would have to be "Intro". I just hate when rappers feel the need to put a sound clip of them having sex or something, but thankfully it's really short. 10/10

this is a fucking crazy album. I’d heard of it before in passing on Reddit or something and probably listened to one or two songs and wrote it off as too weird, but maybe I was just too lazy to give it a real chance. This sounds like nothing else I think. Even today. I feel like we wouldn’t have alternative hip hop like we have it today a la DOOM and Gravediggaz and possibly even the entire horror rap thing that I don’t know much about if this didn’t come out when it did. Dan the Automator went totally original for all of these beats. Can really hear the Sun Ra Parliament Funkadelic influence in how weird it sounds I vaguely remember Blue Flowers being in a videogame. That’s probably my favorite on here. His flow is super different.He almost sounds like Gil Scott Heron with the borderline spoken word thing going on. I’m thankful this one got recommended to me.

Juvenile lyrics and concept stays a little too long, but otherwise subject matter is a fun and unique divergence from typical gangsta or political topics. Tracks are solid and skits are a lot of fun. Great to have another underground artist doing something new and interesting, and apparently he was influential to the likes of Dr Doom.

Holy Schneikies, this is a FANTASTIC album. I was drawn in and mesmerized the whole way through. Again, love this whole 1001 Albums thing -- must remember to hug my dear friend who introduced it to me (good excuse to finally see him after far too long!) -- because here it goes again, sharing with me an artist and an album I otherwise would almost certainly never had heard. I'm coming back to this album. I lost myself so much in the music I didn't always pay attention to the lyrics, and I'd like to focus on those.

Raunchy but Dan the Automator makes for a unique and futuristic sound that gives "Blue Flowers" and "Earth People" classic status. Also what a crazy and creative idea for a concept album. A departure from Ultramagnetic MC's but you could draw some lines for Kool Keith between those albums and this one.

Heard "Blue Flowers" on a CMJ CD sampler and was captivated at 15. Bought the album on CD and it was a cult hit amongst me and my friends in high school. I put these songs on more than a few mix tapes. It was a perfect blend of elements for me at that time in my life. The absurd and often immature sense of humor had a lot to do with it, but really, the main things that appealed to me were Kool Keith's sheer willingness to embrace his eccentricity, and Dan The Automator's gorgeous genre bending beats. Both of them dared to defy the mainstream sound of the time, both sonically and lyrically. Their bravery in willing to be themselves paid off, and inspired more to follow, not the least of which was MF Doom.

"Dr. Octagonecologyst" is the debut studio album by rapper and Ultramagnetic MCs' Kool Keith, actually Keith Matthew Thornton and alias Dr. Octagon. Other key members were producer Dan "The Automator" Nakamura and turntablist DJ Qbert (additionally produced by KutMasta Kurt). I will say the production and scratching are absolutely fantastic. This had to be one of the weirdest albums I've listened to and, of course, I liked it quite a bit. The album introduces the character Dr. Octagon who is a homicidal, extraterrestrial, time-traveling gynecologist and surgeon. Yeah. The songs pretty much piece together his story with weird and eerie music, lyrics, noises and sampling. The lyrics are very unique being absurd, funny, non-related to each other, something rapped and other sometimes spoken. The music is considered as fusing pyschedelic, trip-hop and electronic. I actually think it's some of the best combination of rap and electronic music I've heard. The album begins with "Intro" with its creepy music and has the doctor talking with a nurse he entually has sex with. Spoken word and we're off to a good start which then transitions into the second single "3000." More of a straight-forward hip-hop rap song and, yeah, we're in the year "3000." Remember the time travel. The fourth overall song and first single is "Earth People" with its heavy organ intronand transitions into a funky beat. One of the best combos of rap and electronic music as the later half of the song sounds like Kraftwerk. Tremendous scratching. And yes, he's from Jupiter Earth People. Songs continue to fill in his story and we get to "Wild and Crazy," maybe my favorite song on the album. Just a great groove. Deeper beats and bass. Great scratching and eerie production. The album ends with "1977" and we're back in the Disco era with more straight-forward rappin', a pyschedelic feel and mentions Grandmaster Flash. This album was quite the ride. I don't know about the overall story but the music and production were great. Recommended for anyone willing to sit enjoy the beats and music and maybe laugh a bit.

If you want an insane, expansive, accessible introduction to a certain kind of underground, look no further. While it's gonzo and not always in good ways, Octagonecologyst has aged surprisingly well. The strings sustain the production, a fact I failed to notice during my first listen. The plot, such as it is, is choppy, but Mr. Octagon is nothing if not consistent with his themes. Hard light.

Mad rhymes, crazy beats, awesome scratching, Kool Keith makes records like nobody else sustaining this mad character for an entire album. The lyrics are funny and caustic and stunningly inventive - Keith can likely rap about any dang thing. Unusually for a rap record, the skits are actually funny (and fit the album concept). The is a fun, mad journey.

Solid early horrorcore rap vIbes, sounds like one of the two strains of rap that would go on to inform artists like G-Mo Skee (the other being the Psychopathic Records crew helped by ICP,) and inherently listenable with numerous flows and a dumb, dark sense of humour. A few tracks drug it down from a 5 to a 4 star album, cuz it got a little long and they were the subpar cuts, bit pretty near a perfect rating. Like a 4.25 or so.

Sadly this concept album project with Kool Keith has never been a hit for me. It's a perfectly fine hip hop concept album but it does suffer tremendously from it's run time which makes it feel far too meandering as a whole. None of the beats or production scream breaking boundaries though it is fun to hear Kool Keith embrace some of the more relaxed West coast style. It's never bad except for a few of the skits (what hip hop albums from this era don't have terrible skits tho right?), but also never reaches the heights other Kool Keith projects or concept albums of the era get to.

Okay, so I'll describe the most recent narrative that I discovered from LET'S GET EDGY CINEMA. It's about a mad scientist. An up-to-date theme, right? And he's a doctor. A gynecologist and a surgeon specifically. He specifies in intestine surgery, rectal rebuilding, relocated saliva glands, chimpanzee acne, and moose bumps. But that's not all. He's an extraterrestrial from Jupiter. And a time traveller as well. His phone number is 1-800-PP-51-DOODOO. And and he is also horny and homicidal. And at the top of that, he is named after a freaking polygon. At first, I thought that this is a pretentious narrative trying hard to be "scientific" or whatever. Throwing slick bass and technical words here and there. But it's (probably) not. I think it's a parody, a circle jerk for... medical or science fiction stuff? Awesome synth-y and scratchy sound effects. Love the horror-ish vibes. The lyrics seems comical most of the time, but the delivery is sometimes repetitive and weak. With a length of more than an hour, this little science fiction horror thing gets weary and boring after a while, whether it is a genuine attempt to make a horror sci fi narrative or a self parody doctor story.

If this list has one criticism, it's at times too tasteful. Not something that can be levelled at this completely-new-to-me slice of 90s hip-hop. It is absolutely mental, chiefly based around an alter ego who is an alien sex-obsessed gynacologist from Saturn, the eponymous Doctor. The beats are fantastic, sparse, melodic and spooky in an early Wu-Tang way. The rhymes are ridiculously misogynistic, pornographic (one track appears to be a sampled soundtrack to a porn film) but so lurid and OTT it's difficult to be outraged. Is it any good? I don't know, but glad it's on the list and three stars.

Have to say I probably need to re-listen properly and give my full attention, struggling to remember much about it looking back. BUT from what I did hear I did like, some interesting beats and samples.

Very interesting. I will probably not listen to this album because I don't really like these lyrics, but it sounds so special. Very dark and scarry.

It was fine, a little tedious to get through. Beats are decent but don’t have much variation as well. Some really funny moments which helped to keep it interesting tho. 5/10

90’s hip-hop. A good flow on a lot of the albums…reminded me of Jurassic 5 at times. However, there is also something about albums like these in the 90’s that just feels…I dunno…inauthentic. Kind of like they are the flake plastic cheese version of a real album. I think it has to do with the gimmicky, porny type intro where they are trying to add performances that are not part of the music. It was kind of in vogue to have those kind of intros, or like the short little acts (less than 10-15 seconds long) that they had in between tracks. Definitely a 90’s kind of thing that makes the album feel commercialized and a bit dated.

Excellent hip-hop and record scratching production in an Unkle/Mo-Wax style. The rapping is tongue-twistingly clever, but mind-twistingly bizarre about an alien gynecologist! Mad as a box of frogs.

expected to hate this based on what i've read and my overall ignorance in the hip hop genre - but so far i actually enjoy this a bit. probably helps that im not native english speaker and can ignore the bullshit lyrics and just focus on the flow and beats which are both really good. its still too long and the porn bits are just too much sometimes. My favorite track is Halfsharkalligatorhalfman - the idea of a 208 year old uncle as the final boss is hilarious. Also, there's another album about a horny gynecologist - Doc Gyneco made in France in the same year - who was first here? Don't really care but I think the French one is much better. 3/5

This gets points for trying out a theme and for having semi-interesting (at times) beats/hooks. Lyrically, I wasn't into it and the skits were honestly giving me secondhand embarrassment.

It's... some kind of hip hop. Unconventional, I'll give it that. It's unashamedly immature. Like, really immature. Maybe if I was younger I would have liked it? But then I wouldn't have been allowed to listen to it, so I'm not sure who the intended audience is. He doesn't have a great voice, but I guess that's not necessary to enjoy, or try to enjoy, this album. It's just that at times he sounds disinterested, which kills any excitement I might have had. Ultimately, I had to sign off early. It just felt like boring, uninterested rambling after a while.

Ya que se calle este cabrón. O sea, no está horrible horrible horrible su rap. En algún momento me hizo mover el pie y todo. Pero el disco está muy largo y en algunos momentos molesto. Y nada chistoso en las partes en las que cree que va a sacarnos una risa.

Honestly, this isn't the worst rap we've had from this list so far. Not by a long shot. So I guess it merits at least 1.5 stars. However, I'm still rounding it down. I really don't like rap and this album isn't doing anything to change my mind about that.

I tend to normally vibe with this weird type of rap. But man, I won't lie it feels like there is supposed to be a certain shock factor to it, But it's just corny as fuck. The corny ass beats with some decent flows honestly. The artwork was real cool. However, I think I hated this one.

It’s fair to say that these doctor’s orders weren’t meant for me. Neither is the humor - if you can actually call it that. The production is solid and there’s some interesting scratching. Not that impressed by most of the rap in itself… And the record itself is just way, way too long! This would’ve gotten an extra star if not for the non-stop jokes and skits.
