5.0 out of 5 stars Body Count is back!!! 1 Sep 2006
Wow, Body Count are back and as loud and as ferocious as ever! After the deaths of three band members and a 9 year hiatus since their last album you had to wonder whether they were ever going to return. The opening track is an in your face rap metal piece called `Invincible Gangster' and features Smooth tha Hustla of SMG. This is the only track that features any real rapping so if you don't like it, don't worry. The rest of the album is hard, political and will grab your nuts and squeeze them tight!

End Game is a very political state of affairs tune and there's a theme with both Murder 4 Hire, and Dirty Bombs following suit. Passion of Christ is religious and Relationships is damn right funny. This album will rock you, hell it might even make your ears bleed.

Go out, get it, click add to basket, you won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Imense Guitar Work 18 Aug 2006
This record has to be one of the top metal albumns to be released this year, I would go as far to say this is on par with Body Count's Born Dead LP. Pure genius and oh my god the guitar work is amazing Ice T's vocal style seems to have improved as well. Fans of speed thrash and decent metal will not regret adding this gem to your collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars awsome songs - rubbish production 25 Sep 2008
By Shane
Body Count's long overdue 4th album is full of great songs as usual, but the production ruins them totally. The vocals are too loud, and the music is too quiet, it sounds like the band were playing outside the studio while Ice T was doing his vocals inside, and the guitars are just not heavy in the slightest. The opening riff to 'dirty bombs' makes you think the song will absolutely explode from the speakers - but it just flatlines after that and sounds like a demo tape.

Production aside the songs are great and Ernie C's guitar riffs are brilliant as always, but if you've only got money for one purchase, spend it on their first self-titled album or their fantastic 'Live in L.A' DVD instead.

3.0 out of 5 stars A great CD ruined by terrible production 27 Feb 2008
Let me start this by saying how much I love Body Count, I own all their previous albums which I love.
I way dying to hear the new BC disc but the production quality is horrendous and the producer should be shot - it sounds like a demo recorded by a local band not a a heavyweight big hitter like BC and I cant beleive it was allowed to be released in this state. Ice T's vocals are way too loud and the music is at such a low volumn level and poorly mixed and mastered it ruins the cd for me.
If you can get past this then the songs on the whole are really good, there is a lot of filler unfortunatly like tracks D Rocs and Mr C's Theme but there are also some real stand out tracks like Dirty Bomb,Invincible Gangsta and Down In The Bayou which are as good as anything BC has done.

Sack the producer for the next album please guys!
