This is the BMG-manufactured release
Funky, fresh, and metallic -- serve it up raw!

"When (hed) released their debut LP it was right at the height of the "Nu-Metal" craze, largely propagated by Korn, but it still stands out head and shoulders above what is mostly music made by angry, self-absorbed wannabes. I guess the closest group to them are early-era Incubus, although (hed) are probably a little more aggressive. Despite the band knowing exactly how to land a heavy groove, the thing that really sets them apart is the astonishing charisma and vocal talent of their dynamic lead singer, Jahred; a truly versatile frontman mixing up speedy raps, guttural growling, and melodic singing. All the tunes have that distinctive (hed) sound (Korn-esque chord voicings, clean-ish detuned riffs) which remains across all their albums and is testament to their craft. Stand out songs include `P.O.S.', `Serpent Boy', `Darky', and `IFO'. If there's a problem with the album it's that some songs drag and occasionally sound a bit `cut & paste'. But it has a pretty good raw sound and sometimes that unfocused air lends itself for the better; you get the impression these are young boisterous chaps and must be a hoot to watch live! (Which they are.) In summary, a really tight-knit unit offering something unique, energetic and attitude-soaked. Recommended!"

"This is a hot release, experimental sampling+Hip-Hop+Reggae Dub+Punk Thrash/Metal= This album, you see (Hed)can not be categorized in one particular section, they're a melting pot of styles...Anyways this album is bangin', great breakdowns, dj scratches, rhymes, growls whatever...Pick this up, best of all their releases, their 2nd release "Broke" was good as well, but after that their albums went downhill..PEACE"
