Synopsis

Amazon.com
The debut release from New York cult band The 2 Skinnee J's is a fun and intelligent mixture of hip-hop, rock, funk and pop culture. Altough evocative at times of other rap-rock fusion groups, the J's are an entity all their own, dishing super-heroes on "Ball-Point Man" and delivering a full-throated geek call-to-arms on "Riot Nrrd". Long-time fans will love the new and improved recordings of "The Best," "Champion" and their tribute to Brooklyn living, 718," as well as the appearance of concert standards like "Pluto" and "The Good, The Bad & The Skinnee". Lyrically, frontmen J Guevera and Special J drop more sly and often obscure references than an episode of The Simpsons. If your idea of a good time includes rhymes about Old Jedi mind tricks, Bhoutros Bhoutros Gahli, and Shazam! layered on top of loud drums and wah-wah guitars, these are the J's you're looking for. --Andrew Boscardin

CD Reviews

By far the best Skinnee album.
K. Scott | Raleigh, NC | 08/18/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is by far the best Skinnee album. This is the one that made me fall in love with the J's.
I feel their newer albums got away from the original Skinnee that made the crowd jump and never want to leave a live show.
This album and the way it mixes the rock and rap will stay in my CD rotation forever."
