There are only a few full/ "proper" hip-hop songs on the LP (In the Flesh, Concrete Schoolyard and Improvise being the standout 3 for me). Much of the rest of the LP sounds like the two DJ's simply enjoying themselves. Nevertheless, the record has a great original, underground feel to it. I usually put it on when I've listened to Power in Numbers several times in succesion and want something refreshing.
Vaguely reminiscent of the 'good time' feeling that came with groups such as De La Soul & Tribe Called Quest in the early 90's, Jurassic 5 made their mark in the penultimate year of the century by returning to the old school vibe with some seriously new school ideas an lyrics. Intellectual ryhmes merged with funky downtown beats made this the Hip Hop buy of '98.... and '99....and if you haven't got it yet - well then......
The only thing that I would put forward as a down point is that J5 isn't long enough, and at times you feel that they may be 'filling in' between the really outstanding tunes such as "Concrete Schoolyard", "Jayou" and "In The Flesh". Still you have to take the view that these fillers are better than silence, and although short - are never of a lesser quality. As an album J5 can be marked as no less than an outstanding debut. J5's album is one that can span all ages, cultures and vibes without losing it's credibilty or standing as a landmark in the new wave of Hip Hop.
I'm old school and like to have a physical copy of my music. Zoverstocks, the seller, are now my preferred supplier because they are quick to deliver with great service and quality CD's
Its the kind of music you can't put a date to, it stands the test of time better than the 2Pac tripe that requires Elton John or Billy Joel or some other bilge as a backing track cos no one could be bothered to write their own.
This is what I suppose people would call Old Skool, and it is a great album, and an amazing debut!
