"For those of you that have yet to tune in, Brotha Lynch Hung is possibly the POWERHOUSE in the horrorcore rap movement. When he hit "the scene" it could be likened to taking a sledgehammer to what was considered appropriate in rap music, and this voice made Siccmade music into something that was beautiful in the hideousness it wove. When I first stumbled across "Seasons of da Siccness" it immediately hooked me and pulled me into that Baby Killa Flavor, and I said to myself that this was something worth supporting. I honestly couldn't get over the combination platter of murder, cannibalism, and reckless regard for any notations of civility that Lynch flowed with, and I loved the way he worked that in while representing The Garden Block. Imagine, if you will, a gangsta telling other ganstas that he wouldn't simply kill them, but that he would do it slowly and in a graphically delectable style that left Glad Bags lining his fridge for later and human lining his BBQ pit. And his work on Loaded was equally worth touting, threading the loops with horror themes and connotations eluding to hooks and other instruments of love and devotion, and the goods kept on coming. A downward trend could be noted on Lynch by Inch: Suicide Note, however, with the quality of the beats turning into something a little more generic and the material becoming - tame. And then this record hit and, well, I wished I would have let this one float by.
My main problems with the album are (1) quality and (2) material, and I say that because Brotha Lynch Hung makes me expect more. If I wanted something that had the sound quality of a recording done in my shower I'd go and sign a band to represent my own block, and if I wanted something tame I'd go out and buy the thousands of generic Gangsta/R+B rapper that are in circulation. Lynch seems to have tired of being more that that, though, perhaps not liking the fact that the mainstream bypassed the beast that he proclaimed he was and forgetting that he made his money by being something "different." The beats, the bump, the babies; they all went away. And, if this is any indication of what is to come, so have I.
If you want to try out something shocking, go to the earlier works cited (as well as 24 Deep, some of Appearances, Vol 1, and any of his work with Sicx)and enjoy them. They never run out of ways for you to kill for your little slice of the USSA, and they never get old. If you are a completionist and have to I suppose you could buy this as well, and you might like a few tracks. Or, if you're like me, you'll probably say things that sound more like Brotha Lynch than Brotha Lynch actually does when the album is spinning.
New sickmade CD is dissapointing

"This is the latest release from Sickmade (excuse the ck I don't rip) and to be blunt it is a little dissapointing. That whole gangsta, ripgut sickness is less apparent on this album. Listen to "Loaded" and you can totally tell the difference. That CD is straight sick. Don't get me wrong the lyrics are tight and always are; Tall Can does a great job. But I don't know what's up with the beats. Some songs are coo, like the one T-Nutty is in and Phonk Beta's "Shiesty." D-Dubb also has a smooth song. But overall I say this CD doesn't even compare to the classics like "Season of da Sickness," "Loaded," or "Now Eat." "Lynch By Inch" even starts to go mainstream with the beats and all. If you want that original underground gangsta ish then get Sicx's album, Zagg's, or Lynch's. COS's album is also tight. But "Uthanizm," I don't know I ain't feelin it dog."

"I'm not going to compare the quality of this cd with others but i'm just gonna tell you what I think of it. Now the cd isn't all that bad but isn't all that good either. Alot of the songs that have good beats are ruined by the lack of good lyrical content heard on songs with bad beats. For exm. Hit You Up is probably the best song on the album in terms of the beat and the chorus is killin but I can make up better lyrics regarding some of the lines said, like the first guy who starts rapping. Other songs like I said have some of the worst production I've ever heard but the lyrics are ingenious. Overall this is really an average album with nothing special on it to make you want to buy it, but also doesn't really have any major flaws in it to make to stay away from it. So buying it is your choice."
