4.0 out of 5 stars Tone-Loc had it goin' on in the late 80s 22 Aug 2003
By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
In 1988, Tone-Loc took the pop music world by storm with his immensely popular track Wild Thing and its even spicier follow-up Funky Cold Medina. While this is not gangsta rap or what many listeners might even call serious rap, it did help introduce rap and hip hop to young people such as myself mired in the sputtering realms of generic Top 40 and classic rock music during the late 1980s. I'm not sure that Tone-Loc's throat is the perfect vehicle for rapping, as he sounds like he has a permanent frog in his throat, yet his laid-back style actually works well with his unique sound. Tone-Loc rapped about things almost all young people have in common, thereby making his music much more accessible than the hardcore rap that has never appealed to me. He did lay down a few lines about how talented and cool he was, but he never carried this to excess, nor did he spend any time tearing down other people in the music industry. There is enough profanity on here to merit the Explicit Lyrics tagline, but the language is really pretty tame over all. In one song, he actually uses the words "One, two, buckle my shoe." Any rapper than can say that and still be both tough and successful is a rare talent indeed.
This album is actually filled with good tracks, achieving success outside of its two main hits. On Fire, Loc'ed After Dark, I Got It Goin' On, and Next Episode all share a similar sound, but each of them is a track you wouldn't want to skip over. Cheeba-Cheeba is a lot of fun to listen to, and the fact that it can be seen as glorifying the smoking of a certain type of plant is not important as long as you don't take the song too seriously. Loc'in on the Shaw is a track I could do without, but the album closes strongly, in my opinion, with Homies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hip Hop Classic 1 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favourite albums of all time.

The production by the Dust Brothers (Beastie Boys Pauls Boutique, Beck Odelay) is uncluttered but very tasteful. It is mostly sample based with the occasional Drum Machine or Bass played by Flea (Red Hot Chilli Peppers) and vocals by N'Dea Davenport (Brand New Heavies), but all the songs parts fit so well, it could have been created from scratch. Tones vocals glide smoothly over top and no, he's not trying to change the world, but he brings humour and a relaxed feel to the strong production.

The album did take me a couple of listens when I first got it in 1990 but the more I listened the more I liked it.

It has a distinctive groove and is very easy to listen to.

Quite franky an underrated album if ever i saw one. Toné's flow is brilliant. The content is cosistently witty & his gravelly voice goes well with the instruments he uses. Alltogeter a highly recommended album
