I admit that on first listen I didn't get this album. I don't listen to much metal anymore so to me this sounds quite hardcore with lots of swearing and aggressive lyrics in an almost juvenile way. However, I was pleased to hear Ice-T revive his original "99 problems" from the 1993 Home Invasion albums (I loved that album back in 90s). Then I listened again having seen an interview with Ice-T and seen the music video to "Talk sh**, get shot". I totally got it. Not only the "grindhouse" OTT violence and sex, but the humour, irony and serious points that Ice-T is making. The tunes also grew on me and lodged in my head. As with all Ice-T albums, the lyrics are the best aspect, and the "dude" is getting seriously right-wing in a good way. "Get A Job" might just feature in the Conservative election campaign! "Talk sh**, get shot" is all about internet "trolls", "Back To Rehab" is about beating drug addiction, "Wanna Be A Gangsta" is about NOT being a gangsta; whereas songs like "Bitch In The Pit" & "Black Voodoo Sex" are simpler, self-explanatory and great fun. Finally, I have read many criticisms of "Institutionalized 2014" for losing the subtlety of the original, but Body Count have never done subtle and their version is hilarious. It might completely alter the focus of the song but they have turned it into a true Body Count song and I find that far more satisfying than a straight cover version (compare "Hey Joe").
