The Best Representation of Biohazard

"I was a huge Biohazard fan from 6th grade all the way to senior year of high school. Obviously, as I've grown older my tastes have drifted since my days of nonstop Biohazard listening. But here and there I go back and listen to them, and a lot of the stuff is still good. I think that 'State of the World Address' is the best representation of Biohazard. This is the first album I bought from them. No band around this era of time ('94) was combining metal and rap together (well, maybe some bands were but they weren't very good at it.) Biohazard are pioneers at what they created. The songs were truthful, sometimes positive, aware and politically conscious. This is and will always be their best album.
Over time, I don't know what happened to Biohazard. Their last decent album was New World Disorder. After that, they went downhill. They began changing their sound a lot and they're lyrics turned to crap. It's all negativity now. What a waste!
Here's a little review of the albums:
Biohazard (1990) - Kind of cheesy. Bad production. Not really worth buying.
Urban Discipline (1992) - Excellent. Biohazard found their sound on this one.
State of the World Address (1994) - Very good. Musically, a ten. Very well thought out album
Mata Leao (1996) - A more hardcore album. They tried something different on this one. Songs are very short and to the point. Very excellent lyrics though. I'm a fan of this fan.
No Holds Barred (1997) - Live album. Not a big fan of live album but this one is worth checking out.
New World Disorder (1999) - Some really good songs on this one like 'Switchback' and 'Skin.' Good production.
Uncivilization (2001) - Really, really weak album. One good song. This is when they went downhill. The lyrics are atrocious. At one point they say, "I'm gonna f***ing kill you!" C'mon.
Kill or be Killed (2003) - I didn't even buy this one because I knew it was gonna suck. Again, like the last album, the lyrics are violent and pathetic. Don't buy it.
Top of the game

"this is the last of the great biohazard cds.they took the brooklyn style to new levels and real showed their talents musical.they real let loose a wave of hardcore in you face fury and showed new styles of songs not the same old stuff new and improved hard hitting tunes.they had a fast rise to big league record companies and sucess in a couple of years but this came at a price. after several great tours including pantera,slayer machine head to house of pain/korn the tour the world and rocked it.but then the Hambell incident(which cause 11 years of lead guitarist changes and not one could do the job right.)I personally met bobby Hambel in trenton,NJ city gardens and he was a great guy to talk to too cool.This cd is the last stand in my eyes great from start to finish,they has better song writting and money behind them for the sound quality.this was a agressive cd,but with more mature subjects,hard in you face choruses and truly killer all around songs.I think this rise was too fast and the preasure was too much-in 6 years touring in the punisher mini van , a new then closed up record company and small show of 500 then to touring round the world in tour busses and hotels and a large record company hounding you it's alot of presure then loss one of the original members too much to hold the line.I think this is why the last 11 years of cds are not nearly up to the first 3 or means to an end(great cd).this is one of 4 biohazard must have cds."
