Deadly as an A bomb
A. J. M. Mcdonald | the hague | 12/13/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had almost forgotten that I had this record, but one recent day, feeling particularly incensed, I remembered it and dug it out. Singing along to f#@* `em, I found myself already feeling much better. The last time I played that track so loud was many years ago when I threw in the towel and walked out of a job, and this time round it had the same highly therapeutic effect. By the time Assassins came on, I had abandoned the idea of becoming one, as my rage had abated, having been absorbed by this first class record, which is as incredible today as when it was first released in 1995. It has some of the catchiest gangsta rap tunes you will ever hear.

As other reviewers have noted, this record is the polar opposite of sweet and the lyrics are seething with anger, nastiness and good 'ol fashioned sexism, although they should not be taken entirely seriously. Still, if you are feeling homicidal, they hit the spot. It is the perfect antidote to a bad day.

Play it loud and feel your troubles and deadly thoughts melt away. Far cheaper than therapy, and beats a murder rap.
A seminal classic which belongs in every record collection

"Ever since the DJ at our wedding reception played "Gangsta of Love" in lieu of our guest's request to hear The Steve Miller Band's "Gangster of Love" my wife and I have been in love with the Geto Boys. I still have vivid memories of her octagenarian Irish grandmother break dancing in the middle of the dance floor and my Italian grandfather proudly (and loudly)singing the choruses in unison with the Maid of Honor. The articulate sincerity of the group's lyrics is at once both metaphorically hauting and inspiring. Although Bushwick does his best to supress any mention of his 4 years of vocal training at Juliard, the operatic overtones are unmistakable. I would recomend this album to anyone with an appreciation of fine vocal art. If you like Puccini, Hayden, Wagner and Mahler, I guarantee that you will love the Geto Boys."
