From the moment i first put this record on, it had me dancing and smiling. Upbeat tracks like the opener "Astronaught" and "Don't drop it" will have you body bopping around the house! That's not to say that there's no depth here; some of the mellower tracks are simply fantasic too (front porch lounger, loving me, waiting, sunshine). The basic theme is "slacker" hip-hop. A delivery that comes on somewhere between Jack Johnson and Beck, and at times some of the mellower moments from Everlast's "Whitey Ford Sings the Blues" LP. The real mixing pot of influences stretch through hip-hop, country, blues, jazz and even a little bossa nova on "Two Birds". The most impressive thing is how easily G LOVE incorperates them all to form such a cohesive sound. This is a real joy of an album. Since "discovering" Jack Johnson, I have read other reviews from his fan base, and that's how i discovered G LOVE. If you've followed the same path, click "add to shopping cart" now! This is an essential purchase.

Love it love it love it! Yet again, G Love gives his best. Slightly different from his other albums, where Philadelphonic will always be one of his best but it comes close! Fun, lively and great for any time of day! Would recommend for anyone who enjoys that chilled out vibe. Got the makings of a classic album, an absolute must have.
I'm just confused as to why G Love & Special Sauce aren't bigger over here, so I feel its my duty to spread the love of G, so just BUY IT, you won't regret it!!

The Hustle will not disappoint fans of G Love or the folksy-bluesy-cruisy genre. Shades of Donovan Frankenreiter, with a hint of Jack johnson and a slight Ben Harper flavour, this album is just too fun. You get the distinct sensation that it was fun to make as well.
G Love's profile has risen consistently, particulary through appearances with Jack and Ben at their gigs around the place, but in no way does he need these guys to feed off. With a slightly rougher edge than the aforementioned, G Love has combined the blues, folk, hip hop, rock and just about any other genre you can name, save opera perhaps, and melded them into his own brand of funk. Hard to pigeon-hole, but so damn easy to listen to.
Get on the back of this album - it is a true POLO - "Put On, Leave On" album. In short - you won't wanna skip any of these tracks.

This One's a Keeper 12 Jan. 2005
By Grunt Hog - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Ah, it's good to see G. Love back in top form. After the extreme suckage of "The Electric Mile" I was seriously concerned that it was all over. Happily, however, I am able forgive G. Love for that little misstep after hearing "The Hustle." Here he gets the mix of feel-good soulful blues, rap, and funk just right, with Special Sauce's trademark jazzy arrangements sounding as loose as ever. Excellent effort, guys; keep up the good work! I'll stop complaining about the Electric Mile if you keep putting out albums like this one. Deal?

Rapping Blues 14 Dec. 2005
By Justin Mclaughlin - Published on
Format: Audio CD
For those of you already acquainted with G Love and Special Sauce I say this: this album fits in with his previous work. Lyrically and stylistically the songs are closest to Philadelphonic - and he even closes with a solo acoustic blues song very similar to "Gimme some Lov'n." For those who are G Love fans and enjoy his past work, this record will not disappoint.

Now to address those of you who aren't familiar with this music. My argument in favor of G Love's music is this. G Love has come along and somehow managed to incorporate elements of so many styles: rock and roll, funk, blues, jazz, folk, and - hip-hop. His records are hard to classify, but so what. When he rips into a harmonica solo (as he does often on this record) you feel you could be listening to Howling Wolf. The first track (astronaut) sounds a bit like Lenny Kravitz. But beware: the second tune is more hip-hop infused. I would say the music is a perfect hybrid for our modern times.

G Love and Special sauce are three people. G-love plays the electric guitar, acoustic guitar, slide-guitar, and harmonica. There is a jazz bassist who adds heavily to the band's sound, adding to the rhythm and often pushing the melody as well. The drummer has a busy sound, one that often sets the backdrop for G Love's raps. On this record there are plenty of other musicians to fill out the texture, from backup singers to pianos. My only G Love complaint on this record is his lyrics - they are limited to hooking up with some chick, being stoned, or talk abstractly about "love." I know it's his name and all, but he would be better served expanding his lyrics occasionally to say something different or more important.

Still got 'sauce' ... 13 Jan. 2005
By youseff - Published on
Format: Audio CD
i was dragged to a concert back in the early 90's in a small bar in DC, and this guy gets up and starts wailing on his harmonica. there must have been less than 100 of us in this place, and he hooked all of us from his first note. i've been a g-love believer ever since (and admitting a minor slip with "electric mile", but he had enough behind him to overlook it), and this album does not stray. we played it through the first time and can honestly say that i didn't want it to end. the production is top-rate, and every song on this album shows why he has such staying power. he refuses to slide into the mainstream while staying true to his unique sound and style, and this album can count as one of his best.

Unique Blend Of Blues & Hip Hop 23 Oct. 2005
By Gareth Orchard - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I own 6 of G Love's albums. This one was the first I bought and it remains my favourite. I was one of many who discovered G Love through Jack Johnson. The first time I heard 'the Hustle', I couldn't stand the first 5 of 6 tracks. It was the more acoustic second half of the cd that enticed me. 'Front Porch Lounger' and 'Sunshine' were played over and over again on my cd player.

However, it wasn't long before the more upbeat tracks grew on me and it became one of those rare albums that I could play right the way through. G Love has a really unique sloppy blues/rap sound - incredibly relaxing, great to listen to any time of the day. Definitely recommended.

Favourite Tracks:
Don't Drop It
Front Porch Lounger
Ain't That Right
Loving Me

Surely not mainstream... and all the better for not being 14 April 2005
By L J L - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I should admit that I listen to a plethora of different music, and pretty much get sick of hearing the same songs on the radio repeatedly. Having bought this album because one of my friends, (who has had repeatedly had great taste in music) was upset we missed G. Love at Bumbershoot in Seattle one year, I was pleasantly surprised initially. On the first roll through I enjoyed the complexity, and after that I was hooked. My husband heard it the first time upon borrowing my car and asked who it was. Later that week I found "Hustle" missing from my car, and it just happened to turn up in his. I would recommend this CD to anyone looking for a little something different. And although I was not a G.Love-addict prior to this album, I will be anxiously awaiting his next!!
