If Hell Hath no Fury was the Clipse's ominous we're-going-to-stand-in-the-shadows-behind-this-door-and-whisper-threats-to-you album, then Til the Casket Drops is shaping up to be the album where Malice and Pusha repeatedly punch us in the face very publicly. Granted, we still don't have much to go on, but "Door Man" is a big budget Khaled-era single filtered through the Neptune's weird sensibilities. Meaning the outer space synths are louder, the noise that sounds like a jug whistle is more prominent and the Thornton brothers' foreboding is replaced by confrontation. Not the best Clipse single, but an interesting direction anyway.
