CD Reviews

I need to rectify this or I will never sleep!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is intensely excellent and is highly recommended to all. I must point out that the beloved band IAM is *not* Swiss but the pride and joy of Marseille, and yes their participation on this album "La 25ieme Image" is haunting... Sens Unik, is the Swiss band in the mix with their title "Le Vent Tourne.""
Why French Hip-Hop is to be taken seriously

"The soundtrack of the film La Haine is a document on where French Hip Hop is today. The film is on the tension in the concrete jungle in Paris. The tension being mostly between the Police and the people living in the Suburbs. The film won the Palme d'Or at Cannes (the police in the cinema refused to watch and were standing with their backs turned to the screen). The CD really supplements the movie. MC Solaar, I AM and others indicate that French hiphop is a serious force It is a way in which rappers from the many cultures that make up the population in cities such as Paris and Marseille found a way to express themselves. It is of a much higher quality than L.A. style gangsta rap. The soundtrack is an excellent introduction in to this.

The only downside is that the CD does not contain the Burning and Lootin' that blasted from the cinema speakers at the start of the movie.
