Symptomatic of a Greater Ill is the first studio album by American hip hop duo Darc Mind. It was released on Anticon in 2006.

Release[edit]

Symptomatic of a Greater Ill was recorded between 1995 and 1997 for Loud Records. However, the closing of the label shelved the album for years.[11] In 2006, it was finally released on Anticon.[12]

Reception[edit]

Bram Gieben of The Skinny gave the album 5 stars out of 5, calling it "[a] lost classic, resurfacing at just the right time."[8] Marisa Brown of AllMusic said: "It's a great record, thoughtful and aware yet still laid-back and fun, and though it took a while to be released, it's better late than never to hear this, to be reminded of everything that hip-hop can be, both in the past and hopefully, continuing on into the future."[2]

The album reached number 29 on the Dusted Top 40 Radio Chart in 2006.[13]
