"This is my stuff here... 4 real!!!
As a musician and a fan of various genres of music I must say that Black Rock is much needed. It seems like rock and roll has been completely co opted by white folx. Don't get me wrong, I luv me some Metallica and Black Sabbath and Led Zep. But I dearly miss Jimi, Eddie Hazel and the soul that black people have always put in2 rock and roll. Anyway... THIS ALBUM. DAMN. I can remember when I 1st walked in2 a record store in STL Central West End with my partnas and we heard CRIME STORY... it was over. I had been a Spyz fan fromt the 1st album, but this album (as well as Living Colour's Times Up and Fishbones' Reality of my Surroundings) showed a strength and maturity that truely had me convinced that Black Rock was here 2 stay. The guitar riffs and solos on here are monsterous, the bass lines xxxtra phat and the drums are 2 tight (sorry, Anthony was not as tight as this white boy). This was the Spyz peak album 2 me. I liked some of what they have done since, but most of it pales in comparison. I still have this in my CD wallet (it's been there since it came out) and I don't anticipate puttin it away soon.PEACE"
How can I be......

"the first person to rate this AMAZING cd. What are you people thinking? For the fans of Living Colour, Fishbone, why have you not rated this cd? This cd came out in 1991 or 2 and has continued to make waves for those who love heavy metal soul. Jimi, Rick, Jeff and Joel are amazing. Too bad Joel and Jeff departed. I loved the original line up with P. Fluid and Anthony Johnson. What ever happened to them? Anyways, this was supposed to be their 2nd breakout recording (Gumbo Millenium was the first). I was hurt when P., Anthony, Jeff and Joel all departed when they did. They do have a new cd coming soon with Tony Lewis pounding. Of course Jimi and Rick are present. Also, get Jimi's 21CENTURYSOUTHBRONXROCKSTAR! Amazing cd. Love, Peace and Hair greese!"
