This album is hot as are all of Naughty By Nature's albums. Treach is a heavy weight MC.

5.0 out of 5 stars a heavyweight hip hop herculean 14 April 2011
By Quaddy
Format:Audio CD
i dont know if its just me, possibly, but this is one of my all time favourite hip hop albums, probably due to the fact this takes me right back to the hot summers of the early nineties skateboarding with friends, and this album amongst others was getting a lot of play, some classic tunes, the opening yoke the joker is a menacing and quality opening to what is a strong album overall

standout tracks for me are

yoke the joker
let the hos go
guard your grill
uptown anthem

this stirs some halcyon days inside this one, and just for that its worth owning

3.0 out of 5 stars allright 3 Nov 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
theres a few good tracks on here but its nothing speical. i bought the greatest hits and was disspapointed so then for some reason i went and bought this album too. why!? i dont know, bordom i guess. i suppose this album is worth it for pin the tail on the donkey, thats a straight up hip-hop banger right there. probabaly better just go go and downlaodit though instead of buying the entire cd. sorry amazon, you never put up my reviews though so what do you expect!?

4.0 out of 5 stars The First Two CDs I Ever Bought [Part 2 of 2] {4 Stars} 30 Jun 2006
By Norfeest - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Okay, let me point out two things before I get started:

1) The reviewer below me (Amparo Acosta) totally plagiarized the review of this album from writer Stanton Swihart (the review can be found on that website).

2) I'm not sure if this album was rereleased with "Uptown Anthem" added to it, but my copy doesn't have that song and I bought this album the very day that it hit stores back in '91. I had to buy the soundtrack to Juice in order to get that track (the classics on that joint made it worth it anyway, but back to the album).

Anyway, Naughty By Nature's self titled debut and Queen Latifah's Nature Of A Sista LPs were the first albums I ever purchased on CD. Up until that point, I was buying records and tapes because I couldn't afford a CD player and my mom wasn't going to buy one for me. I eventually saved up and bought one, but I digress. When I first popped this album in, I immediately noticed how tight of an MC Treach was (Eminem openly gives him a good amount of credit for being one of the blueprints used for his own particular style). The best word I've heard used to describe his flow is "nimble". Treach could bounce from track to track and ride any beat with what seemed like no effort at all. The production is credited to Naughty By Nature, but I'm guessing the bulk of that fell on the shoulders of Kay Gee (the guy behind hits for Zhane, Next, Jaheim, Koffee Brown, and many others -- you've probably been dancing to his beats for the past 7 years and didn't even know it). Also, those looking for Vinnie to shine should look for later releases. He doesn't make much of an impact on this album -- he fills the same role as Phife Dawg did for A Tribe Called Quest (the sidekick that spit a bar or two and then came into his own on later releases).

I have to disagree with the editorial review. There is a fair amount of filler on the album. "Wickedest Man Alive" is cool, but I could only tolerate Queen Latifah's psuedo caribbean accent in small doses. "Let The H*es Go" is one of those songs that isn't bad, but you have to be in the mood for it or you may skip it and "Pin The Tail On The Donkey" was pretty forgettable. "Thankx For Sleepwalking" is actually pretty good, but it starts to become a chore to listen to due to its length (5:26)

Naughty By Nature is definitely one of the more memorable albums of the 90's. The success of "O.P.P." brought a lot of pop fans and those same pop heads will be the ones that will tell you that this album isn't that good (like the spotlight reviewer). They don't really know what hip hop is anyway. If you want to hear one of the best rappers of the 90's tear up dope track after dope track, then get this album. Take it from someone who's been into hip hop since the age of 8. I highly recommend this album to any fan of rap music.

Standout Tracks: Everyday All Day, Ghetto B*stard (My Favorite), O.P.P., Strike A Nerve, Yoke The Joker, Rhyme'll Shine On feat. Aphrodity, Guard Your Grill, and 1,2,3 feat. Lakim Shabazz & Apache

5.0 out of 5 stars You Down Wit OPP..yeah you know me 22 Feb 2005
By Low-Ko187 - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I first got in NBN after hearing 'Pin the Tail on the Donkey' and 'OPP' so i decided to cop there debut and from Toke the Joker to Uptown Anthem this is a tight album. NBN made this gem in 1991 and this is underated by people-i'm the only one who's heard of them out of anyone I know. It made a hit over OPP (y'all know what it means-if ya dont then listen to da song dumazz) Also Pin the tail on the donkey is tight, Wickedest man Alive is also, and on Everything's gonna be alright Treach tells of his childhood and how he was really poor and didn't have a dad and it is a good song, also 123, Uptown Anthem and Guard your grill are dope, well the whole album is!. Check this album for some tight NJ hip hop.

This CD has it all from the pumping beats of Uptown Anthem to the lighter side in OPP. Not to mention everything in between is pure butta baby.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ol' School 28 July 2006
By rip pacman - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I actually like Naughty by Nature. From the Jackson 5 sample in "OPP" to the entertaining "Yoke the Joker". If you like guys like Yung Joc, TI, and 50 Cent, dont waste your money on it. But if your into old school rap, Naughty by Nature is for you

Top 5

1. OPP

2. Everything's Gonna Be Alright

3. Yoke the Joker

4. Wickedest man Alive

5. Let the Hoes Go

to me, the this debut album was their finest. it was as raw as it was mellow. i like them better when they are no holds barred raw. my faves on here are YOKE THE JOKER, GUARD YOUR GRILL, EVERYDAY ALL DAY, STRIKE A NERVE (because vin rhymes on it), GHETTO BASTARD, and UPTOWN ANTHEM (which was not on the original album that i bought on cassette.....oh, and vin rhymes on it). now POVERTY'S PARADISE was nice, but it did not move me like this one. this one showed a hunger that the others did not. i love it when the driving force is full of that.
