"Do not be put off by the reviews & criticism, this is not a disapointment nor is it a lackluster peformance from the legendary JBeez. I'm sick of people comparing it to "Straight out the jungle" and earlier releases, that was almost 10 years before this!! They have evolved!
The sound on "Raw Deluxe" is essentially a much more laid-back, smooth vibe with the captivating production and easy-to-follow lyrics. If anything it is actually more satisfying and well-rounded than "straight out the jungle" as the low quality recording made SOTJ at some points, very un-enjoyable to listen to. Similarly, although respected legends, it was evident that both Afrika and Mike G were nothing special lyrically back in 1988, they were just consistent, and there is no difference here. The lyrics are smooth and full of flava that compliment the beats perfectly, just how it should be. Hip Hop legends De La Soul & Q Tip (Tribe Called Quest) drop by for one of the album's best tracks "How ya want it we got it".
With the beats being handled by the JBeez, Djinji Brown, The Roots, RocRaider & Stereo Mc's it has to be said that the production is the highlight here. As said, laid back - smooth vibes is what your mental will endure with "raw deluxe", straight consistency. Don't hesitate to PICK THIS UP if you are a fan of the JBeez, 90's Hiphop and underground hiphop alike. PEACE!

"This album never gets old, if your were born in the 80's like me this will be your favorite Jungle Brothers album simply because the sound on the other albums is just too dated & this sounds more modern, even though it's ten plus years old the beats stand the test of time plus the lyrics are just dope on the "Political" & "State of the Black Man" tip, I have to admire progressive thinking. If you love De La Soul's "Stakes Is High" you'll love this album. It's a must have for any Native Tongue fan or even todays Justus League fans alike. "You Don't Know where u going, if u don't where u came from" So copped this wonderful album by the JB's, because w/o there'd be no "The Listening"- by Little Brother."
