Hip hop how it should be...
Tim Fish | Nottingham, UK | 02/23/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the follow up to the 1994 album Between a Rock and a Hard Place. That was a classic album and so this LP had a lot to live up to. But it succeeds by bringing that classic hip hop style while making the transition in to an era that was dominated by everything "gangsta". El Da Sensei and Tame One come from a true hip hop background as they are both graf artists originally and they manage to keep that element running throughout their music. I never really understood why this album got so overlooked when it was released, as it had all the things you need for a classic, including tight production from Shawn J and Lord Finesse, as well as El and Tame's lyrical skills. If you've heard the 1st album, this won't disappoint and if you've never heard the Artifacts before, this is an excellent place to start."
Totally WACK (this album sucks)

"Got your attention there didnt I HA HA. This is one of the greatest Hiphop releases of the 90s if not one of the greatest of all time. El Da Sensei and Tame One Drop some ill Metaphors while Lord Finesse and a host of other veteran producers hook up the beats. I love how the funky beats change right in the middle of the song this adds alot of variety to the tracks and keeps you coming back for more. The dope arangements are put together so masterfully on this CD that I have been listening to this album litterally for months And each time I listen I hear something new. The beats are some of the dopest you will ever hear and this is one of the few albums I have heard that could stand on beats alone with no lyrics. after listening to four mediocre Hiphop albums this was a nice suprise. El da sensei and Tame One are truly great Lyricysts their metaphors are not the best in the world but they are better thatn 98% of the rappers that attempt the classic CANIBUS metaphor formula. If you do not own this album seriously WHY ARE YOU STILL READING THIS click on the buy button and get everything that these guys ever put out. You will not be dissapointed"

"Another classic. I like their debut slightly more, but not by much. El da Sensei & Tame One (Redman's Cousin) keep the same formula from the first album - completely rip the mic over unique, dirty beats. In many Hip-Hop arguments I often have, I constantly name Artifacts as being ideal Hip-Hop. They have charisma, mic presense, great beats, originality, dope flows and most importantly, meaningful and intelligent lyrics. Both their albums belong in every serious Hip-Hop collection.

The only real difference between "That's Them" & "Between a Rock..." is "That's Them" sounds more updated and the beats are more serious and less wacky. But neither of those things affects the quality of the music at all.

The production is stellar and handled by all-star, beat-masters:
Shawn J-Period (Black Star, Bush Babees, Mad Skillz), Lord Finesse (D.I.T.C.), 2/3's of Tha Beatminerz - Mr. Walt & Baby Paul (Boot Camp Clik), V.I.C. (The Beatnuts) & Showbiz (Show & A.G., D.I.T.C.). The only guest spots belong to the two lords, Lord Finesse & Lord Jamar on the lovely posse-cut, "Collaboration of Mics."

Bottom Line: This is an amazing album from start to finish, no skipping needed. This album should be owned by every Hip-Hop fan, no excuses. A 5 star classic, Peace."
