CD Reviews

An undeniably dark and dubby, provocatively sexy album
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The bassy madness of The Whore of Babylon with it's immense build up makes you want to throw yourelf around your bedroom, whipping your hair around your head in a manic frenzy. Retreat Wicked Man is so filthy you can't help but move to it. It makes your very skin quiver with excitement while rocking you upwards and leaving you yearning for more. Blow the Whole Joint Up just takes things to where they should be when you're out and about in any decent club. Just feel the cool vibration of the bass and allow it to twist you up into this whirlwind of thunderous, wondrous, thought provoking sound before it gently, but sadly, drops you back down, exhausted. These songs are so low down with bass and yet move with such agility you are left no less than beguiled, sweaty and mesmerised."
My favorite Big Beat CD

"No CD in my collection gets me moving like this one. I recommend it to anyone interested in big beat, electronica, etc. . . Great diversity of rhythms and emotions. Simply terrific from start to finish."
Should top Amazon's list of Big Beat Essentials...

"With a decent collection of the so called fundamentals of big beat (crystal meth, aphex, chemical brothers...) I can honestly say that Shoot the Boss outstrips all competitors as far as straight danceable beat making is concerned. One of the first I have seen to cmobine electronic with regae funk, Monkey Mafia creates rhythms that range from dance club hits to boulevard cruisin grooves.
Tracks that top the list for me are "Healing of the Nation," which holds an amazing beat that makes you think of a track that the Gorillaz were striving to reach but never quite achieved.
"Blow the Whole Joint Up" is a pulse pounding track that keeps you shakin your butt throughout its entirety, and is one of the few songs that you can actually get into on Amazon's 30 sec sound clips.
Other great tracks include "Lion in the Hall" and "Work Mi Body."
BUT... the absolute, hands down, best track on the disc is the first, "Make Jah Music." This track defines what a big-beat track should sound like. Riding an incredible heavy bass it loop that is good enough to hold a 4 minute track on its own, the song is soon accompanied by a fiddle and bite that sounds somewhat similar to the noises made in Prodigy's "breathe." HOnestly, the CD would still be at least four stars and worth a buy if every other song was miserable, this track is just that good. Just be sure that on the first listen, its with a good, loud sound system, then sit back and wait for your friends to praise you for finding this amazing unspoken electronic gem."
