CD Reviews

This band has it going on!

"I first heard the song Suburban life on the radio and thought it was good. Bought the cd and listened to the music a few times. Then listened to the words, and it made me a fan. Their lyrical talent to rhyme and be creative is far superior. The song "play on" is probably my favorite."
Kottonmouth Kings at their best!

"The KMK are one of the few bands that haven't hit the mainstream and remain undeniably original. Of course, with most bands, the first album is the best, and this applies to the KMK as well. Royal Highness is the band at their best. This has absolutely nothing to do with the split with Saint and taking Johnny Richter on board, as many people believe. The reason why this album is their best is not because of Saint, it's because of the entire band. The album has a raw, slightly unhinged feel to it, as heard in Bong Tokin' Alcoholics and Misunderstood. Some bands attempt to fuse musical genres together, and fail miserably. From the reggae feel of Dog's Life and Psychadelic Funk to the punk sound of Spies, it becomes apparent that the Kings are versatile, able to flow from one sound to another seamlessly and perfectly. Daddy X's production outdoes even Dr. Dre's work; he creates such an intricate shotgun of sound that it will make even the most weary hip-hop junkie's eyes widen in surprise.Opening with Bong Tokin' Alcoholics, the album slaps you across the face in the first minute. 'Gettin bent every night is the thing we do - I get up everyday in the afternoon.'
Flowing effortlessly into Play On, you start to get an idea about what the Kings are all about music-wise. Someone asked me who the Kings sounded like upon mentioning them, and for once in my life, I couldn't compare. What you get is the Kings finest work, crafted into a 75 minute blast of hip-hop that screams 'not sane'. This is one for the houseparty."

"This album is incredible and I believe it shows the real show of the Punk Rap group's style. I am incredibly fascinated at what some people say about the album totally being a waist of money. I have to tell them that if they think the only good song thay sing is the version of "Suburban Life" Scream II soundtrack they're weird. Scream II had a really bad soundtrack and if you can name one song good on it I will be surprisd. I can name at least five good songs on the Kottonmouth Kings CD. This is a definate numero uno for music lovers."
