CD Reviews

Excellent funky, laid back jazz / hip hop greeoooooves
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Still pretty fresh and contempory considering the albums age. This is basically a re-work of 'shooters first album but contains a few new tracks - Hot Buttered Rum an excellent addition... In summary a must have album for any acid jazz collection."
The Hip Hop is good, the Instrumentals not so much

"If there's one thing the Sharpshooters can do, it's bust a laid back hip-hop groove and get a dope MC to lay down lyrics over it. That's what got me to purchase this CD. The song "Analyze" was featured on DJ Spooky's "Modern Mantra" and I loved it. The other hip hop tracks on the album are all pretty tight, although I'd say Analyze still is my out and out favorite. The instrumentals however, are where the Sharpshooters are not as good. They're not horrible mind you, I can still easily listen to the CD all the way through, but they're not terribly interesting nor do they demonstrate any extraordinary talent. So basically, if you're looking for a few (4-5) good hip hop tracks and several decent acid jazz tracks, go for this CD."
Funky mix of jazz and hip/hop
