Despite one of the worst rap names ever, Kentucky trio Cunninlynguists are lauded for exploring concepts of good and evil and their representation in modern society. Oneirology posits these themes as an hour-long dream. Amid guest verses from Freddie Gibbs (who embodies the crack scourge on "Hard as They Come") and others, Deacon the Villain and Natti wonder whether the rap life is a fantasy or a nightmare. The Christian symbols of past albums are toned down but not forgotten, so it's no surprise when Deacon concludes, "Aim high/ Poppin' bottles will get boring."
