"I agree that if you buy only one Mix-A-Lot album, this should be the one. It is funny, clever, and bumpin'. It's not the perfect album, but it shows both Mix's strengths and weaknesses. Mix's strength are the songs that are funny, or at least tongue-in-cheek, and "Beepers", "My Hooptie", "Gortex", "I Got Game", and "Something About My Benzo" are all brilliant. Mix's self-deprecating in the midst of boasting are what make his song lyrics great.For example, in "I Got Game" (I think Mix's all-around best song), a great, driving cut about a day in which he goes out to pick up as many freaks as he can, after picking up one girl, he says "Roll to the hotel/game was strong/she thought I spent bank/but I really spent coupons". The lyrics to this song are all playa.Mix's weakness is for songs that potray him as hard, or songs with a serious message. On this album, they clash, and the serious songs don't make a good showing."My Bad Side" is a hard hitting rap song where Mix is mad, and it works, as does "I'll Roll You Up", but "Seminar", "National Anthem", and "Peek-A-Boo Game", other songs where he takes a serious tone, fall flat and sound preachy and tedious. That's especially true for "National Anthem", which while it may have a serious message, doesn't fit at all between the hilarious "Beepers" and the odd, funny "Gortex". I actually just skip the serious songs when I listen.And the oddest sounding song on the album, a funny, slow-ride, take-it-easy rap about Mercedes Benzes that makes you wish you own one, "Something About My Benzo", should really be more of a classic. "Not one I got three/I collect 'em you see/ an SEL, a 190, and and SEC".On the whole though, this album is the bomb, because the good songs are really, really good, Mix's beats are strong, and his lyrics are tight and humorous. This is a great classic hip hop album. You should own it!"

"I love Mixalot, who would of thought a 40 year old white guy jammin to Mix. One of the best cd's ever in my mind. Go mix!"
