Organized Konfusion is the eponymous debut album by Queens Hip Hop duo Organized Konfusion, released in October 1991 on Hollywood BASIC. The album and the group have received a large cult following throughout the years. The record was originally given a rating of 4 out of 5 in The Source in January 1992.[4] The effort has received perfect ratings from many sources, including Allmusic and RapReviews. Group members Pharoahe Monch and Prince Po were praised for their highly skilled lyrical ability, making use of intelligent vocabulary and metaphors. The content on the album ranges from light-hearted tales ("Who Stole My Last Piece of Chicken?" "Audience Pleaser"), to extreme, politically influenced songs ("Releasing Hypnotical Gases," "Prisoners of War"), to religious influence ("Open Your Eyes"). AMG writer Stanton Swihart wrote in All Music's album review:
