Ever heard of a Trinidadian dish called pelau? Well, mix any type of food you can get your hands on: chicken, rice, onions, tomatoes... Stir all of these disparate parts up in a pot and enjoy. The Baha Men are Bahamians, not Trinidadians, but they utilize this formula to create their unique brand of music. With its catchy "Woof! woof! woof!" chorus, the self-titled single will make you feel "Hot, Hot, Hot" like Arrow. Soca connoisseurs might find it a bit disturbing that the Baha Men chose to cover this dated carnival anthem of 1998 (originally recorded by Trinidadian Anslem Douglas), but bounce-music audiences won't mind. Although none of the other tracks quite match that song's intensity, there are a good handful ("You All Dat," "Shake It Mamma," "You're Mine") that successfully mesh the popular music styles of the day (R&B, rap, pop) with the percussive junkanoo rhythms of the Bahamas. The electronic beats on "Summer of Love" and "You Can Get It" don't match their organic island flows, and the lone ballad "Where Did I Go Wrong" doesn't fit in with the general feel-good mood of the album, but this CD is filled with decent up-tempo party music for hot festival nights. --Dalton Higgins

"Okay, I had a review here, but judging by the responses I got, it may have been inadequate.
Let's try this again...
You All Dat - A funny story-type song (music taken from The Lion Sleeps Tonight). Nicely sentimental and not *too* corny.
Get Ya Party On - *Great* song! A perfect example of what they do the best, lively Miami Bass. (That's what it's called. Miami Bass.) By far my favorite.
Getting Hotter - A very happy, lively, quick-paced ska-esque number. Think "Hot Hot Hot", only far less annoying. :-)
Summer of Love - Just a really pretty Carribean-style love song.
You Can Get It - Ooh, Motown! At least that's what it reminded me of. Highly enjoyable song with a positive message.
It's All in the Mind - More Miami Bass, but with a much more conventional hip-hop sound than Get Ya Party On
Where Did I Go Wrong - The obligatory post-breakup song (a la Back For Good) that actually manages to avoid getting too sappy. Good stuff.
You're Mine - Disco-esque ska. Probably the weakest track (definitely on the repetitive side), although still passable.
What's Up, Come On - Another party track, nice and happy.
Shake It Mamma - And to close it off, an energetic dance number about a sexy lady. What's not to love.
So there you have it. As someone born and raised in Hawaii, I developed a taste for this type of music from an early age, but anyone who's into party music of any kind will love it.
Well, that's all I have to say. Hope it helped.
(Oh yeah, there's also some stadium song of some sort. Eh, whatever. :-D)"

"WHO LET THE DOGS OUT!?!?!!!! WOOF!!! WOOF!!! WOOF!!! WOOF!!! This song is great because it reminds me of when i was watching basball and the mets were playing the yankees and it was cool. mike admit it you used to like this song alot and said its really good and cool and you were singing to it and your brother said it was cool it reminds me of when mike was cool and he wasnt a moron and he listened to me. it reminds me of when rossler listened to good music like limp bizkit and kid rock and music like dmx jadakiss and he was a big fan of grant hill who now plays for the orlando magicand is back to being the grant hill he was in the 90s. rossler and joey and mike all used to say i was cool and used to hang out with me and call me the leader and rossler said to me that ace was cool but now its like this, ace your retarded i hate you your annoying what ever happen to mike saying ace is cool and joey said ace your my best friend your really cool. but now joey is like "your gay and im a pimp" and im thinking wtf happend to this world????? Mike Joey Rossler, if your reading this, think about what you have done this past 4 years... think about what you have done to me and what you have said. just remember i was once the king of Woodhaven, just like TI is the king of the south and Lil Jon is the King Of Crunk. Ludacris used to be the king of the SOuth and ATL but TI overthrown him. i feel the same way because of what you fa*gots have done to me...."
