This was some classic underground material from the early 90's. This and their follow-up, "GodSound" was dope. I don't know why they didn't get more acclaim...

"yo man, let me tell you, back in 1994 there were a lot of underground groups comin out of ny. bms' stood out with an album with hypnotic prophetical sounds. now when i hear their cd i realize that this album is probably the most artistic hip hop album ever made. the way the songs flow together and the shift of emotions the songs deliver is on another level. i seriously think that these guys were ahead of their time, and still are. These beats have instruments used in them that a lot of people never used in hip hop, but they work perfectly hand in hand with their style. Not to mention, these guys are trying to save peoples souls with their futuristics flows of revelations. This is some of the most powerful hip hop ever made!"
Awesome Underground Sound!

"I was fully impressed with the soulful sounds Boogiemonsters accomplished on GodSound. When I finally found Riders and bought it on Ebay, I threw it in enthusiastically for a thorough listen. I had read reviews that talked of it as being one of the most slept on albums of all time as well as one of the best hip hop albums ever. These were very high praises. I loved the Boogiemonsters vibe on God Sound and figured that these claims were quite possibly true. After listening to the LP strait through over 10 times in the period of 5 days, I concluded that the LP did in fact live up to the praise. The music the group makes is strait dope!!! From the raw verse of Jugganauts and Riders of the Storm to the laidback styles of Boogie, Muzic Appreciation, Honydips in Gotham, Salt Water Taffy, and the Stressless Mix, the group excells in a way most other hip hoppers can't. Meaningful songs like Rec. Thresholds of Neg Stress, Mark of the Beast, and Old Man Jacobs Well mix up the Cd and give it very dark qualities that also add to the overall complexity of the album. Bronx Bombas and Altered States of Consciousness are just plain fun as the beats are beautifully done. Overall the album covers all the bases for a classic. The lyrics are thoughtful, fun, and skilled. The beats are very relaxed, sometimes dark, and progressive. Songs like Honydips in Gotham and Mark of the Beast will keep this cd in your rotation forever. I think I played Honydips like 10 times on repeat once while I was chillin and it was just fine, never unenjoyable! Big ups to underground conscious hip hop. Boogiemonsters:Riders of the Storm = certified CLASSIC, Do't Sleep........Peace"
