"Gather up your Lubavitcher friends and listen to these two zeydes singing their tuchases off. My favorite track for funny is "Oui! It's So Humid" but "Young Jews Be Proud" gives me a lump in the throat."
What could you possibly expect?

"I'm confused by the smattering of reviewers who pan this album. If you read the other reviews you'll find that most of them confess to having owned this cd at some point, and that they are shocked and horrified to find it's still available.
I mean, what would one really expect from a parody group called "2 Live Jews" who put out a song called "Oui! It's so humid" ? Did anyone really think this was going to be a golden classic they were going to keep and cherish forever, possibly pass on to their kids...? A jewish Dark Side of the Moon or Stairway to heaven? Come on! it's a joke album and some jokes get OLD!
But -- if it made you laugh - even once - it sort of did it's job, didn't it?
I have a collection of joke and parody albums, and this one fits in just fine. It's not up there with the King of musical comedy Spike Jones, but it's still good. Do I drive around listening to it in my car? No. Do I listen to it as I sip a nice chianti? No. But it sometimes comes out at parties and it always gets a hearty laugh. If that's all you really expect from a joke album, then you should be pretty content.
The musical style is dated, yes. Rap was much younger and simpler when this was first released. But the rhymes are good and often downright clever. I'd even be willing to recommend their disco album."
Have you heard of Chutzpah?

"And I actually don't mean the kind that it takes to put out an album like this... I mean the group CHUTZPAH. Go look/listen to their albums. Eponymous by Chutzpah is great. Fun, Jewish Hip Hop with strength and a 'tude.
If you want your Jewish hip hop - straight up beautiful... find Ta-Shma's Come Listen.
If you want Jewish and classic/funny... try You Don't Have to Be Jewish.
