Mr. Len's solo debut is as intriguing and convoluted as its title. The ex-Company Flow DJ is all over the place here, teaming with an eclectic roster of guest MCs to create a sound that is certainly his own. Racing from the funky "Get Loose" to the unsettling "Taco Day," Mr. Len attacks with reckless abandon and leaves no stone unturned. Pity the Fool is incredibly ambitious; it almost seems as if Mr. Len is trying to condense any and everything a DJ can do into one not-so-tidy package. While some of it works and some of it doesn't, Mr. Len's formidable skills are never in question. It's a wild ride, but Pity the Fool maintains a playful tone throughout, offering plenty of fine moments along the way.
