Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Prince Paul joins forces with Dan the Automator to create Handsome Boy Modeling School, an outlet through which the duo (and a dozen or so of their closest big-name friends) can mix and mingle with rap, turntablism, trip-hop and, of course, tongue-in-cheek humour. And while this idea may sound original, its name came straight from an episode of Chris Elliott's short-lived sitcom Get a Life. Elliott--the goofball writer and cameo guest for David Letterman--springs up a few times on the disc in the form of a few vocal samples, but mostly this show is centred around the guests: Encore provides the disc's best rap on "Waterworld", Grand Puba and Sadat X (from Brand Nubian) perform "Once Again" on top of a sample of Three Dog Night's "Old Fashioned Love Song", and DJ Shadow does his usual magic with the 1200s on "Holy Calamity". Miho Hatori (Cibo Matto), Mike D, Sean Lennon, Alec Empire and even Father Guido Sarducci are also along for the crowded ride. Does this runway of cameos ever sound thematically cohesive? Hell, no. With this many friends helping out, do we really need to hear Prince Paul on the phone with Biz Markie ("Calling the Biz")? Of course not. But this name-dropping vanity fair is nothing if not ambitious, and chances are there's something here that you'll dig. --Jason Verlinde

5.0 out of 5 stars INCREDIBLE! 26 Mar 2002
Format:Audio CD
If you are a hip hop fan like me, you will adore this record. Dan ('my man') the Automator along with Prince Paul exell themselves with this composition including many, many famous and infamous artists - from the MC's themselves, to Dj's such as Shadow putting his input in. I must say, if I could add ore stars to the rating I could - great buy! For mine and your sanity buy this please! (but don't tell too many people!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy Me! 25 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is absolutely excellent - genuinely interesting music with loads of style and attitude. It's worth it just for track number 7, 'The Truth' which features Roisin from Moloko on vocals and MC'ing by J-Live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lush, chilled, innovative hip hop beats. 8 Feb 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Amazing stuff, I have only had this for 24 hours and already it is one of my most favorite things, if you liked the Herbalizer, you will love this one, the word needs to be spread. A huge display of different talents come togther to produce one of the most innovative, intelligent examples of modern hip-hop. Just the list of guests bringing their influences to this album is enough to promote it, Mike D, Moloko, DJ Shadow, Money Mark, De La Soul and even Alec Empire. The overall vibe is of sheer class, with underlaying periods of chill (Sunshine) and even occasional periods of maniacal activity (Megaton B-Boy 2000). There really isn't much more to say about this album other than buy it, if you are into MoWax/Ninja Tune style dope beats, you can't go wrong. Say no more.
