Still A Great Album

"Even though this album is ten years old, it still is a great album.
If you love Scarface as a solo artist you'll love this album with his old group - the Geto Boys. If you like Body Count's "Cop Killer" you have to listen to "Mr. Officer" on this album.
Also, has one of the saddest ghetto stories "Six Feet Deep" before Ghostface's. Almost every song on the album is a winner."
CLASSIC GETO BOYS. A MUST-HAVE; 4.5 STARS
MICHAEL TAYLOR | RICHMOND, VA USA | 08/13/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)
"SHORTLY BEFORE THIS ALBUM WAS RECORDED, WILLIE D LEFT THE GETO BOYS TO PURSUE A SOLO RAP CAREER. TO TAKE HIS PLACE, BIG MIKE WAS ADDED TO THE GROUP. THIS WAS A REAL GOOD ALBUM. IT'S NO ''WE CAN'T BE STOPPED'', BUT IT'S REAL GOOD. THE BEST TRACKS ARE ''STRAIGHT GANGSTAISM'', ''CEREAL KILLER'', ''SIX FEET DEEP'', ''IT AIN'T'', AND OF COURSE, THE 8 MINUTE-PLUS ''BRING IT ON'' WHICH FEATURES NUMEROUS RAP-A-LOT RAPPERS FROM THE EARLY 90S. SHORTLY AFTER THIS ALBUM, THE GETO BOYS ANNOUNCED THEIR BREAK-UP. BUT, THEY CAME BACK 3 YEARS LATER [WITH WILLIE D AGAIN] TO DO ''THE RESURRECTION'' AND THE GETO BOYS CAME BACK FOR A FINAL TIME IN 1998 WITHOUT BUSHWICK BILL TO DO ''DA GOOD, DA BAD, & DA UGLY''."

"This Album was bangin but I don't gives a F#$k what you say Big Mike Ain't No Willie D! I mean don't get me wrong The Peter Man got skills but I think Will got him in the lyrical department! Will just has that voice and feeling that what he says HE MEANS! I really think Bill stepped up the lyrics on this album also! Everyone always leaves out Bill & Will and talks about Face but The G.B. is not the same if it ain't Will, Face & Bill! The beats from Bido, N.O. Joe, Mike Dean and the rest of the Rap-A Lot posse were always ahead of their time with the hard beats and the hottest old school samples! I credit this record lable for making me research and find the original artists they sampled from and opening my young mind up to a whole other era of great music! Rap-A Lot Fo Life!
Love, Peace, Unity & Fun... Vendetta"
