Synopsis

Amazon.com
Digital Underground's debut album was invigorating, thanks to the way founder Shock G. mixed samples, instruments, and voices in dizzying profusion. At the same time, the raps themselves were juvenile jokes about getting high and getting laid. One could only hope that Digital Underground would outgrow the dumb goofs and refine the aural montage. But on its third, full-length album, the group hasn't advanced a bit. --Geoffrey Himes

Looking For a Digital Lover? (Rating: 8 out of 10- -4.0 sta

"After two full length albums, and an EP, Digital Underground hits their fans for their third full length "Body Hat Syndrome". As a group, they introduce three new members: Clee, Dirty-Red, and Saafir. Digital Underground keeps up those Paralament and Zapp samples that they have used throughout their career. As usual, Shock G., Humpty Hump, and Money B, handle most of the vocals throughout the album. Saafir appears on most of the songs as well, as his unique voice and rhyme style makes a great addition to this album.

D.U. has some weird concepts behind their album that can be very funny. Most of this album revolves around sex. As usual, Humpty Hump becomes crazy as hell on "Return Of The Crazy One". A few easy standouts would be "Holly Wanstaho" and "Brand Nu Swetta". "Dope-A-Delic" shows Shock G. at his best from a lyrical standpoint.

More than likely, fans who were looking for pop singles such as "Dowhatyoulike", and "The Humpty Dance", won't find them on this album. You will find an album full of goofy tracks. Some of them too goofy that they make absolutely no sense, towards the end. "Shake And Bake" and "Jerkit Circus" sounds very similar. And I won't get into how bad "Whee!" sounds like. Also any fans who are looking for any Tupac appearances, will only find him on two tracks: "The Humpty Dance Awards", and "Wussup Wit The Luv".

Big fans of D.U. will be impressed with this album. It's sort of like other D.U. albums, but without any pop/radio friendly singles, as mentioned earlier. They're still goofy and funny with their songs, and thats all they need to be to impress fans like me. Peace.
