Summary: El-p Is A True Emcee Especially To Come Up With The Stepfather Concept
Comment: For those of you who didn't know, El-P had an abusive step father. He had to watch his step father beat his mom. You would know if you listened to his song on one of his Company Flow albums. Stepfather factory is a middle finger to all step fathers that abuse their wives. This track is good way to express it. It's an unusual way of putting it, but El-P DOES have a special way of explaining things while making them confusing. The beat was dope too. Mad credit to El-P! El-P is dope!!!

Summary: Soundbombing II Revisted
Comment: This song is f*cking dope. I'm sick of these cats hating on El-P. This song reminds me of "Patriotism" on Soundbombing II. Here is a qoute from El-P for you haters, "Criticism isn't smart it's an art for the dejected."

Summary: El-P Is One Of The Best Producers There Is! And He Ain't A Bad Rapper Either!
Comment: Anything off "Fantastic Damage" is a winner, because it is f**in amazing and in my opinion one of the best rap albums of all time, El-P tries to be different and therefore saves us all from tedium. This song is nothing less than incredible. Highly depressing and bizarre lyrics, and a brilliant beat....it might be an acquired taste, but if you have the correct frame of mind you just realise how astoundingly beautiful, different, and bizarre the beats and lyrics are. A masterpiece!

Summary: Something Between Woozy And Confusion
Comment: On the whole, a decent track from El-P! His mechanical samples over a rigid militant beat overemphasize the “As Built Robotic Father” theme for me. It sounds too apocalyptic for his subject matter. Tone it down! I've ignored this overbearing element and focused on his lyrical content. Damn, the picture was painted well! On first listen it came off as the usual pseudo-rambling I've grown accustomed to from him. Not that this isn’t here, but on this track, as the spokesperson for this new concept, using a rigid technical rapping approach fits neatly within context (check the lines where he calls on the little girl from the crowd, lmao). He’s a machine himself on this and he rides this beat brilliantly, believe! Sadly, this only fails in its production!

Summary: Oh My God
Comment: Holy sh*t, have you heard this track? God damn man! "Building tomorrow's fathers today," "The cheapest way to fuel his batteries is with booze," f*ck. This is like the deepest El-P song I've ever heard. Friggin’ creepy - that thing at the end that sounds like that annoying Bonzi Buddy f*cker. Check this song. This cd gives me the impression El's sister was raped by their stepfather, just so you know.

Summary: Ya'll Are Crazy
Comment: El-P is straight out DOPE, his beats are some of the most futuristic sound in the industry. The Undaworld Dis bandit is raw but that’s just me. I suggest this album to everyone and anyone who wants to listen to some original shit... FANtastic Damage.

Comment: El-P is perfecting his grimy, unconventional, and incredibly dope production with each release. His beats on Cannibal Ox's The Cold Vein seemed to mark a high point in El-P's career as a producer, and "Stepfather Factory" has one of my favorite beats from him. The chorus is especially harsh, but stunning while the rest melds some melodic keys and samples and frantic drums. The mood is especially dark and El-P's out-there lyrics, which seem to stem from "Last Good Sleep," add to the tone. This is a must for all followers of El-P/Company Flow/Cannibal Ox.

Summary: Unflowing Flow Horrible Beat
Comment: Flow didn’t flow and the beat gave me a headache when I played it loud. It reminded me of a Nazi camp in a black hole. The song had its message but this song is way too dramatic for the topic. This guy EL-P is possessed by demons to take comfort in these sounds. “Holding ears,” as my mom would say, “this is just noise.”

Summary: I Guess This Review Is For Stupid People
Comment: First off, the Fantastic Damage CD is amazing one of my favorite releases of all time. Having said that it's hard to pick a best song on the cd. It's in all honesty, most likely impossible. This song however deserves as much recognition as any song on the album, top five easy. The beat is great of course, you'd expect no less from El-P. The concept is one of the best in the history of hip hop, and his lyrics are very good (4.5). It's an abstract look at the need for a father figure in the home, and the potential problems of having a step father (hense the name of the song). So to say he is talking bullshit just because your too stupid to recognize the theme makes you look pretty dumb. Give El-P his due, he's improved a lot as a writer since his Co-Flow days.

Summary: What's Up With El-P
Comment: I don’t know why cats think El-P is so hype his lyrics are mad dumb. What does Stepfather Factory have to do with anything? The beat is alright but the lyrics are bullshit.

Summary: Unlike Any Other
Comment: "Stepfather Factory' is a poignant, and hard emotional track that leaves the listener aware and awake. The production is dirty and raw but it guides along at a headnodding, yet ill sinister pace. The best aspect of this cut is you can understand El's lyrics: "In an effort to find an energy source our company's learned/The cheapest way to keep his battery running is with booze/ Plug it in, give it a name, man of the house, help sustain"

Summary: The Future
Comment: EL-P's artistry is like the vision of 2001 from 1985. It's the place where we thought we'd all be, but haven't made it there yet. A complete vision. More than just beats and rhymes.
