On first pass, you're more likely to find bemusement than amusement in his relentless stream of consciousness, but with each repeated listen, his adroit turns of phrase and wordplay reveal themselves, like subliminal frames cut into film reel.Despite Keith's larger-than-life presence, it wouldn't be a proper Dr. Octagon release without Dan the Automator's anchoring production. His palette leans dark on the new album, befitting some of the dystopian themes that creep into the songs. There's growling synthesizers and dissonant whines ('Octagon Octagon'), robotic beeps and bloops ('3030 Meets the Doc') and serrated strings and unruly guitars ('Operation Zero'). For all its moodiness though, one senses that Dan is having a ball emptying out a playpen of sound effects and samples. The best ten minutes, musically, might come in the middle of the album, beginning with 'Bear Witness IV,' which marks the third time Dan has invited San Francisco's DJ Q-Bert to let loose his virtuosic scratches. That's immediately followed with the surprisingly upbeat 'Area 54,' which combines piercing pianos, blaring horns and the album's funkiest drum loop to produce the best early '90s-era hip-hop basement jam of 2018.
