"Tom Green: Prepare for Impact is one of the best rap records I've ever heard. I really dig the Soul Assassins and Cypress Hill sound, and EZ Mike (a.k.a. Mike Simpson, of Dust Brothers fame) does that sound in his own manner on some of the tracks. Dark, dusty beats with odd bursts of strings and trumpet melodies accent each line of Green's fierce wordage.
Tom comes through with some pretty dope rhymes, too. He's no comedian, as he states on one track. A virtual book of celebrities he's met or been snubbed by (or looking to start some beef with - except Paris Hilton...) can be heard on "People In My Neighborhood." "My Bum Is On Ya Lips" is so catchy, you may just find yourself wanting to do that for some odd reason, if only because of some of the rhymes he throws down! "Teachers Suck," the 'lead-off single' keeps your head bobbin', trying to grab on to some of the lyrics to rap along with Tom the next time you spin it. There is some sort of sub-sonic hypnotic property about most of the album, which I am attributing to the combination of EZ Mike's beats and Tom's word-wizardry.
The Canadian import includes a DVD which sports as much entertainment as the CD itself. 45 minutes of Canadian tour footage (across the province of Ontario) details just how much Jagermeister the Keepin' It Real Crew can drink, and the bonus features take you back to '92 with Tom's first posse, Organized Rhyme, in the 'classic Juno nominated' clip "Check The O.R." The video for "Teachers Suck" is also included in its entirety, and is something not to be missed. I'll leave it up to you all to figure out what the option "Whale Noises" does. It is truly sad one will likely not see this on MTV in the USA just yet.
Get it on import if you can't find another way to get it. The US version should be coming within the next calendar year, with an all-new version of the DVD, so don't miss the opportunity to grab hold of the Canadian version now!
A++! Highly recommended to all fans of Tom Green. Keep in mind parts may be funny, but it's not a comedy album! This is serious, old-school hip hop. Word to the Keepin' It Real Crew."

"Needless to say, Tom Green doesn't disapoint. I was unsure the first time I listened,...then realizing this was all a joke, it has become one of my most played albums on the ipod. Keep it up Tom, you've still got loyal fans...
