The Forcefield Kids is the official debut album by American hip hop musician Passage. It was released on Anticon in 2004. The album features contributions from Sole, Odd Nosdam, and Telephone Jim Jesus.

Reception[edit]

Liam Singer of Pitchfork Media gave The Forcefield Kids a 6.6 out of 10, saying: "The stark contrasts of images and styles combined with the musical assault give the impression of Passage as an ADD-addled teen in a room full of keyboards and samplers, letting loose the ravings of his sugar-soaked subconscious."[3] Melissa Wheeler of Exclaim! said, "there's a lot going on, which can make the album seem disorganised and uninspired, but after a few listens it becomes clear that Passage does alright in his organised mess."[2]
