2½ stars out of 4
This album went platinum on the strength of the Pain's breakthrough rap
anthem 'Jump Around', a track that kept heads bobbing on a global scale. But
the band seem unable to repeat the formula on most of the album's other
tracks. As a result, the beats begin to sound largely familiar after a
while- and that's when everything starts to get dull and depressive.
However, a few songs like 'Top Of The Morning To Ya', 'Put On Your Shit
Kickers' and 'House And The Rising Sun' are interesting enough to keep you
from throwing this out of your CD collection for good. Also, guest spots
from Cypress Hill's B-Real and SonDoobiest from FunkDoobiest keep the
lyrical flow entertaining.
