Album Notes
The year was 2000. The Wackacons had invaded the Emerald City. Parties grew listless and nightclubs suffered greatly under the Wackacons' ever-growing influence. Repetitive loop manufacturers, lackluster DJs
and angst-filled metal pushers aligned with the Wackacons and quickly flourished in our once-great city.

It was later that year when fate brought five independently minded Autobeat technicians together. Instantly, their positronic brainpaths fused. Within weeks, laid-back progressive hiphop beats were mixed with brutally brain-teasing rhymes.

It is the primary objective of Optimus Rhyme to rid the world of Wackacon oppressors.

Optimus Rhyme blends live beats with interstellar rhymes creating a sound that can most closely be compared to the music of Deltron 3030 and Kool Keith. MCs Wheelie Cyberman and Broken English trade off rhymes which weave personal experiences into the fictitious lives and adventures of the AutoBeat robots. The lyrical and vocal skills of these master storytellers combine with Optimus Rhyme's live instrumentation (featuring guitar, bass, drums and a taste of turntables) to transport the listener to very different world, one which you will not want to leave.


to write a review


Funktastic flows that rock your pants clear off
This cd is fantastic, I was so happy to finally get it and promptly grooved through it several times in a row. The flows of optimus are spectular and I love the narative in songs like Fuzzy Dice.


Excellent Hip-Hop
I've been keeping the whackacons away from my ride for the last week straight with this cd. My only complaint is that it's too short, I look forward to whatever I can get from these guys, SEE YOU AT PAX!


Mmmmmm, nice like donuts.


Wakacon blastin goodness
All I gotta say is this is what hip-hop is supposed to be. Old school styling with witty lyrics, this will be on my playlist for a long time


Fantastic Disk
Fantastic CD. I really like track 4 and some of the other crazy wierd tracks. I heard about them like many from Penny Arcade, and I look forward to seeing them at PAX '05! This is my new official "Driving Music" cd!

Kenneth Fredheim

Funky beats & excellent vocals.
Always a fan of awesome beats, I found this CD to be some of the best hip-hop I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. The funky bass combined with the lyrical Autobot universe makes for a truly enjoyable listening experience. A must-have for anyone interested in good rap and music in general.

Mr B

A "must have" for any alt. hip/hop fan!!
I bought this cd after seeing Optimus Rhyme at PAX '04 and have been listening to it almost non-stop since! These guys have put 18 tracks of pure golden flow on this disc.

Nat Burner

cutting edge sound
Definite ingenious styles ,flow,and instrumentation.Reminiscent of the vibe at "The Goodlife Cafe" & "Project Blowed" out in Cali.


fast clean rhymes
This is a great Cd by optimus, an expansion on the EP with some new sound and a great beat.

Nicolas Webb

Great album, very original
I really enjoyed this CD - the whole thing was put together very well. Realy enjoyed the funky band along with the tight, intelligent rhymes. Can't wait for the next one!
