5.0 out of 5 stars Just doing it for the love of the sounds 14 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
I've heard a lot about 'production' and how lyrics being negative doesn't matter but this LP proves how good the original ideas behind hip-hop still are and also that you don't need to rhyme negatively to be relevant. This is all about fitting each beat with each word, still not having to be too serious about yourself and just loving the sounds which we can create and doing it all for the enjoyment, the idea behind hip-hop for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the good old days 2 Jun 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is proper hip-hop, original beats and clever lyrics. The group claim they're all about the music and this is certainly true. I have to draw attention to 'cut-chemist' the real star of the group - check out 'lesson 6' for an example of his skills. J5 are often compared to dilated people's and on the basis of this lp you've gotto say they're even better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Purified J5 11 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
The J5 LP is far more raw than the perfect pop of Power in Numbers and is not as filled out as Quality in Numbers. However, if you already own these two albums and want to hear more harmonious melodies and addictive beats then this LP won't dissapoint.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars We got the action.... satisfaction! 19 Aug 2003
By Steph
Format:Audio CD
It was a great week for Hip Hop when Jurassic 5 blasted back on the scene with their self titled LP. Bridging the gap between the long standing east coast/west coast conflict, Hip Hop fans found an album that didn't discriminate - and at long last, was 'all about the music'.
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.
