"I had to go through and reorganize the database just to be sure (and it's still possible I missed one or two) but judging by the count this is the THIRTY-FIFTH MEGA RAN ALBUM reviewed on the website. That's more Random a/k/a Mega Ran releases than there have been editions of WrestleMania, which seems appropriate given what we're covering today is another of Ran's wrestling themed albums. If it wasn't obvious from that release alone, Ran has never made a secret of his love for the grappling arts, and if you followed his Instragram this weekend you saw him chilling with a lot of wrestlers in Orlando. I admit I kinda wish I had been there for the weekend but... Orlando just sucks. No offense if you live there but the roads are horribly laid out, the weather is humid, the traffic is ridiculous, everything is too expensive, and it's just one big tourist trap. I've been there, done that, and LITERALLY bought that t-shirt. Back to Ran and his partner in crime Lynx Kinetic though -- this is "Mat Mania: The Revenge." And as a worthy sequel to the original I'm happy to see some new faces in the mix, including one of my OTHER favorite pro wrestling rappers who goes by the name R8ed R. You might expect them to be flowing over a Lynx Kinetic remix of a modern wrestler's theme, but they throwback all the way to the old school and go in over the Legion of Doom (Road Warriors) as Mega Ran incorporates their classic catchphrase "snack on danger and dine on death" into his rap on "WHAT A RUSH!" Clocking in at just over four minutes long and coming heavy with the percussive thumps, this is an album highlight and a very worthy spot for R8ed R to make a cameo. The only other guest appearance of the entire release is Teek Hall the Villain, who makes the most of his spot on the card as they bust flows to the nWo (that's the New World Order to you non-wrestling fans) guitar licks on the aptly titled "New World Order."That's the interesting conundrum of the Mega Ran & Lynx Kinetic albums."
