Blackout is a welcome joint effort (in more than one sense) from two of hip-hop's most entertaining, popular personalities: "two boys possessed by dough, hos and hydros", rap's self-proclaimed Cheech and Chong; Mans Method and Red. As one would expect from an album produced by ex-EPMD man Erick Sermon, many of the tracks tend towards the soporific; it can often be difficult to spot the tune amongst the tub-thumping beats and murky backgrounds. In these instances the distinct voices of our hosts more than compensate, and elsewhere Blackout covers a surprising variety of aural styles; meandering from the stadium-rocking title track to the infectious and irresistible ("Checka" and "Tear It Off") and the inevitably spliffed-out ("Mi Casa" and "The?") via the quickly forgotten and ridiculous ("Fire ina Hole" and "Cereal Killer"). Meth fans might feel a little short-changed by the fact that one of these standouts, "Big Dogs", appeared previously on Tical 2000: Judgement Day, but the whole affair is carried off with such humour, character and deftness of touch that they're unlikely to care. --Paul Philpott

There are many double acts that will be remembered in Hip-hop for a long time as two different rap styles which just connect together to create a unique sound - Raekwon & Ghostface Killah; Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg; Eric B & Rakim; and finally, Method Man & Redman.
The duo mix together two totally different rappers - Redman uses a funkier sound and has a squeakier voice, a rap style that is almost sickly - too much of it can ruin the whole experience. Therefore, this album is probably the best way to enjoy Redman's talents. He does a lot of rapping, but his sickliness is balanced out by his partner in crime.
Method Man contrasts Redman's funky style, as Meth's solo albums feature bleak, almost uncomfortable beats but a killer flow that leaves the listener in admiration and not caring that his beats are quite hard to listen to. Meth's voice is also a massive contrast on Redman's, Meth having a deep, rugged yet somehow quite smooth voice.
The two styles compliment each other perfectly - so you should expect nothing but the best from Blackout.
The album is gently introduced with an introduction which shows what Red & Meth have in common with other rappers - they like smoking a certain substance. This intro leads nicely into what will be possibly the song that has the most initial appeal on the whole album.
That song being Blackout. Featuring a catchy tune that you'll be humming afterwards, this song almost deserves praise for that alone. And the lyrics, like most of this song, have initial appeal - long flows with several words all using the same rhyming sound make this very easy on the ear. However, the song is shallow: firstly, the beat is relentless throughout the whole song, so whilst it's catchy you will tire of it eventually.

I bought this album back in february of 2001 and it is still one of my fauvorites. It hasn't bored me at any time and thats quite good after nearly a year. Standout tracks are "Mi Casa", "YOU", "Da Rockwilder", "Tear It Off","Big Dogs" and "Well All Rite Cha". If you're a big hardcore hiphop fan and u aint got this yet. GO GET IT NOW!!!!!!!

This is one of the greatest Hip-hop albums of all times.

I'll keep my review short as the great review before this said pretty much everything.

No one has the lyrical skill and humour of Meth (Not Marshall, not Nas, not anyone).

And no-one does that grimey street sound like Red.

And when they come together, Oh gosh.

This Album has stayed on rotation with me for years. I still listen now and it gets me fired up.

There's humour, grit, grime and unique flavour here in abundance.

This albums is a MUST-HAVE for all hip-hop fans. even in 2007

This album is CLASSIC

Perhaps this doesn't contain enough ninja mythology for the average Wu-head, but Method Man is miles better on Blackout than he is on Tical. It's the production that makes it really. I dig RZA's dusty, lo-fi beats, and this works great for the likes of Inspectah Deck and GZA, but Method Man has always been, at heart, a party rapper. My only experience of Redman is through Whut? Thee Album but I'd say the same for him as well. Have these two honestly ever done anything better than the renegade genius of 'Da Rockwilder'? There are only a handful of rap duos that match the charisma and fun that these two demonstrate when their lyrics play off each other. Sure, it's hard to make an entire album out of weed references, but very few projects have come together quite as well as this one. Fire Ina Hole!

At last we finally get an album by the two 'men' Method Man and Redman. i only bought this CD today aswell as Tical 2000:Judgement Day and i was so impressed with these 2 CD's i almost went out again to buy Redmans own album. This album is so great because the two rappers do it so well. If it was say Puff Daddy and Ma$e (i do like these rappers)- lets face it, it would suck. as soon as u put this cd in the player u jus keep listnin cos it is total class. wit songs like 'The Dogs' and 'Tear It Off' this album is deffinately worth the money. Buy this album now or regret it! if u r a rap fan already then u should buy it, if u arent buy it anyway and u may surprise yourself. TRUST ME - YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED

WHY IS THERE NO REVIEW OF THIS???
This is a classic Hip-Hop album. Every track is good. Every beat is good and most importantly, it has some of the best hooks of all time; every hook of every song is a classic. If you claim to like 90s East Cost Hip-Hop then you must buy this. And this isn't a typically loopy Amazon review, anyone will tell you this LP is a rap classic. Plus is has an insane, dark humour running through it. It's a cross between a rap album and a stoned, crazy, out of control comic-book. It really is quite splendid.

What can i say this album is BAD. there is nothing i have heard recently that even comes close. This is a must have in any music lovers collection. red and meth work perfectly with each other. All the tracks have a slight freaky feel e.g cereal killa wich is my favourite trak on the lp. The east coast has produced a truly amazing duo, and i will never get bored of listening to this album , buy it !
