Body Count - 'Born Dead' (Virgin)
Mike Reed | USA | 02/19/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"'Born Dead' was the band's second out of three CD's they put out.I remember all the controversy surrounding the single of their previous effort.Sort of made me question the meaning of 'free speech' in the USA.Notice that on this platter,Body Count makes the full transition over to heavy thrashcore.'Born Dead' is a bootie-kicking twelve track disc that,in SOME ways are better(at least I thought)than their first record.Never liked rap at all,but THIS - rap/metal is,well it's got plenty of life to it.Hard not to at least appreciate it to some degree.Tunes I thought were good include "Killing Floor",their Hendrix cover "Hey Joe","Shallow Graves","Sweet Lobotomy" and "Drive By"(amazed this tune didn't cause any problems).Line-up:Ice-T:vocals,D-Roc&Ernie C-guitars,Mooseman-bass and Beatmaster V-drums(R.I.P.).Don't disturb too many neighbors playing it."

"If one hears of Body Count in the morning, he may die in the evening without regret!There is a large difference between knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge is gained by reading textbooks but wisdom comes from growing up in the ghettos of Compton. In my opinion, Ice-t is the ultimate modern day wise man. Body Count is one of the tools he uses to propagate his wisdom to the rest of the world. His message to the world is very clear: Strive for unity, eradicate tyranny and fight for peace. An excellent album from a very intelligent band with tallented musicians."

"On this album,Ice switches to a thrashcore style lovers of the style will go mad about.The songs are mega fast,with furious social lyrics and full of hatred.If you're into thashcoreand dig bands like Ratos De Porao,get this one at once.It suffers from some degree of dynamic compression though,but if you can correct that,it'll blow your brains againt the nearest wall."
