Review by DjBatman
3½ stars out of 4

"Duck Rock" - 7 years later. The collective called World Famous Supreme Team is still there and so is "Buffalo Gals II - Remix". Yet the most memorable moments of the album are in other tracks... one of them being "Romeo and Juliet", that transforms the Shakespearian tragedy into an urban story ("It was a long time ago, but I never forget / I got caught in a bed with a girl, Juliet"). MC Hamlet's rap is also featured on another Will Shakespeare rip-off, "II be or not II be" which literally steals some verses from Hamlet's famous speech, while "Un coche de agua negra" adapts a Garcia Lorca lyric ("Negros en Cuba") into a latin dance anthem (not to mention the occasional "Spanish Harlem" fragments). I almost forgot "Operaa House!", a culture clash with operatic vocals ("You're from the ghetto / I sing librettos"). Once again, McLaren has fun recycling bits of pop culture, hip-hop and -this time- opera and literature.
