CD Reviews

A Taste Of Italy
3rdeadly3rd | Brisbane, Queensland Australia | 01/20/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I went to Italy back in 1997. When I came back to Australia I thought there was no way that I could re-claim that atmosphere of walking around in what is one of the most chaotic countries in the world. I was wrong.Despite the fact that my Italian essentially stops after foods and the old "Ciao Bongiorno" song it is still possible to appreciate this album. The instant I put it on, I was transported back to Rome as chaos reigned everywhere and the Italian looked at it and calmly continued on with their business.A good deal of the album is taken up by gloriously carefree party songs ("Domani", "Tranqui Funky" and the hilarious "Latin Lover" being the most noticable) but there are an equal number of harder tracks, such as "Non C'e Remedio" and the title track. An interesting track to listen to is the opener "Un Urlo" which sounds almost like an Italian version of "Jump Around".J-AX has, by this album, developed a marvellous flow which suits the "spaghetti funk" music perfectly. Of note, too, is DJ JAD's work on many of the tracks which is the best I've heard on foreign rap.A very funny song to listen to (I'd appreciate it even more if I knew Italian more) is "Sono L'MC" in which - as far as I can tell - J-AX describes trying to become an MC in Italy.This is certainly an album and group that deserves more exposure outside Italy and should be bought at any opportunity. It can be used very well at a party, or just as a CD to have on in your room - there's always the use of it to learn Italian as well."
Italy's answer to "House of Pain"

"I'm an American who was a radio dj in Milan, Italy in 1986. At that time, Italian rap was in its infancy consisting of rhymes that sounded like jump rope jingles, sort of talked to (or against) the beats- bad replica's of a lot of New York City's one-hit-wonder rap artists. Articolo 31 shows just how much "L'Italiani" have caught up in the rap game and found their own way to express themselves rhythmically, as well as lyrically. Most of the cuts on Articolo 31's "Cosi Com'e" sound distinctly different from one another, which makes it a nice cd to listen to from start to finish- I never get bored with it. I like how they show us their "dancy" side with ""tranqui Funky", and their sense of humor with "Latin Lover." I love how they include some grittier cuts on the album, forcing me to dub the, "Italy's answer to "House of Pain" I bought this cd in Milan in April, 1997. It is one of my favorites. I listen to it about once a week.Joy Anderson"
