Old school rap, fun stuff. I believe that this is the censored version of the album.

CD Reviews

Addictive, hard-edged, unabashedly Irish white boy hip-hop
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Trumpeting the joys of Philly Blunts and beating down your enemies, this album has some of the most catchy tracks of the past few years. The grooves are well-structured, with hooks that worm their way to the center of your head and make even the most whitebread fella want to bop around his living room. One of the most enjoyable touches is the way they combine Irish pride with self-mocking references to the more traditional stereotypes. These guys may not rap about the horrors of inner city ghetto life, drive-bys, or the omnipresent ho-smacking, but that's a good thing. Should be a required part of most people's musical arsenal. Plus, extra points for naming a band after a reference to Orwell."

"The trio, Everlast, Danny Boy and DJ Leathal, steered away from the norm to give us a damn near classic. Before Eminmem came out white boys were not regarded as serious, besides this group of Irish fellas. Catchy hooks, phrases and simple rhymes did it for the frontman and emcee Everlast. There is a lot of drinking, partying and good lyrics without the shoot 'em up, bang, bang. What kept this from being a classic is some of the samples and solid production to back the fine malt lyrics. Considering this is a 1992 release, it doesn't collect dust in my collection.
