CD Reviews

I don't use the term "classic" very often, but...
10/30/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The first thing that'll hit you while listening to this album is the uniqueness of the three rappers (Dinco D, Charlie Brown, and Busta Rhymes) in both lyrical content and delivery. Many of the songs have a real point to them (such as "Just When You Thought it was Safe" and "Teachers Don't Teach us Nonsense") but are still lots of fun. Then there's Cutmonitor Milo, who does some of the most creative sampling I've ever heard, on "What's the Pinocchio's Theory?" there are bagpipes and dialougue samples from Disney's "Pinocchio". Then there's "Sound of the Zeekers @#^**?!" the ultimate example of how strange and far sampling can go: There are 10 rappers in this song, you keep hearing things that sound like a chorus but are never repeated, and the music changes somehow with each rapper's part; maybe an extra sound, beat, or sample. This album is rap at some of it's best, and a must have for Busta Rhymes fans."
Absolute Classic Material
ill will | Austin, Texas United States | 09/28/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"An hour long c.d. that never gets tired, great routines, always on point back and forth delivery and creative production that makes the whole thing gel. It's a sort of loose concept album which follows LONS through a day in school. The opening track has a great feel with samples from the riot scene outside the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, this is the "whole world is watching" bit.

Busta blew up but listen and see if he didn't work much better in the context of a group. At the time this dropped, it seemed like every week something new was coming out raising the bar for hip-hop, exciting times. Other classics of the same period would definitely include Gang Starr's Step in the Arena, Brand Nubian's All for One, Tribe's The Low End Theory, Diamond D's Stunts Blunts and Hip Hop, De La Soul is Dead, KMD's Mr. Hood and Cypress Hill's first one."

"This album expresses true Hip Hop to the fullest.every track. Speechless I dont even know what to say about it. Plus you get to hear Busta Rhymes when he had skills & wasn't just a mumblin mumblin yellin' jerk. dont sleep! pick up this Classic!"
