Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Two years after Quality Control proved that B-boy-oriented retro-rap doesn't have to be corny, Power in Numbers sees Jurassic 5 gearing up for the revolution. While fans of Quality Control's bright sound will still find much to enjoy here, J5's sophomore offering does a good job at extending their sound. Opening with "Freedom", a quiet yet focused call to action, Power in Numbers presents a slightly darker vision of hip-hop nirvana than the group offered first time around. In keeping with the album's title, J5 have also expanded its extended crew--Percy P (of the early-90s underground group, Double XX Posse) and Big Daddy Kane help wreck the G Rap-esque "A Day at the Races", and the always game alterna-diva, Nelly Furtado, lends a surprisingly effective pop edge to the bouncy "Thin Line". On the production end of things, Juju of the Beatnuts adds his special blend of Colombian madness to the jazzy "If You Only Knew" and the considerably bleaker "One of Them." --Rebecca Levine

As a big J5 fan, I find this their best album to date. With their trademark "retro" beats, they create fantastic music through breathtaking lyrical ability and feel-good beats and tunes. Their highly original sound is fantastic and every song is fresh.
There is something in the album for everybody, and the honesty in the lyrics, with the harsh words of "one of them" brings you closer and closer to J5.
I am having dificulty describing the music, but it is suitable and welcome for every ocassion.
I don't go anywherre without this album and I would recommend it to anybody.

I've really got very little hip-hop in my collection; mainly I'm electro and electronic beats. I have a tiny bit of hip-hop from back in the day, but no modern stuff, and I probably lump the genre in with rap which is totally unfair (and wrong).

Anyway, this album is chock-full of amazing beats, riffs, rhythms, lyrics, and little musical journeys and experiments. I don't think I've said "Wow!" so many times when listening to a single album before.

What I think is so amazing about this album is that it could really be played on so many different occasions; every song is thoughtful and beautifully crafted, and has a great flow that keeps you nodding along, and just seems to enhance your own mood and thoughts. Dinner, picnic, chatting, chilling, bedtime, commuting - I would put this on.

Top, top stuff. Buy it :)

Format: Audio CD
After a sizeable break since their last output, Quality Control, this was supposed to be the album in which the group changed, deviated from their distinctive style, alienating a portion of their original fan-base.
Sure the five-man collective have changed, substituting basic yet excellent beats (particularly evident in the Jurassic 5 LP) for a more complex formula that retains the nostalgic feel that identifies the group. The lyrics are still there; from Chali 2na and his bass-filled rhymes to Zaakir and his thoughtful, humourous flows.
The tracks themselves are quite different from each other; they consist of some upbeat tracks (High Fidelity, What's Golden), and beautiful compositions that relax your whole body (Hey). As stand-out tracks, I would pick Freedom, If you only Knew (piano and flute combo? brilliant!), A Day At The Races (guests: Big Daddy Kane and Percy P), What's Golden (Beat!), High Fidelity and Hey.
Give this album time (some tracks do take a few listens) and allow it to find a special place in your CD stack. The production (alternating between Cut Chemist and Nu-Mark, with a few joints by JuJu of the Beatnuts) is on the whole very tight, the album is an lesson in beat-making.
So in summary, an evolved J5 produce another spectacular album combining great lyrics with high-quality beats, resulting in yet another must-buy. I showed this to my friend as an introduction to real hip-hop, his verdict: 'It's great, they've got their own style going'. He has a point, the album is an amalgamy of styles set to a hip-hop template. So it goes without saying that this album is recommended to anyone into good, real hip-hop or to any admirer of remarkable composition skills.

Back to there best after there second album "Quality Control" which itself is a pretty good album. They will never out do the quality of there first LP, but with "Power in Numbers" there showing that they have the best ryhmes and beats out there. There tune with Nelly Furtado is one of the best songs on the album, showing for the first time that working with other artists expands there sound. Quality album that just about anyone will love, even if they don't like hip hop.

This album is another perfect combination of great, meaningful (and innoffensive)lyrics and good background beats as well as some excellent cutting and scratching by cut chemist and nu-marc. I would highly recommend this to any hip-hop fan or just a fan of quality music.

By Will Stent on 17 Nov. 2006

I am a fan of a wide scale of music, and probably have interests or favourites in any genre of music. I bought this album on the pretext that it was similar to Will Smith in it's smooth and classic style, and I had heard an excerpt of 'A Day At The Races' - but what I discovered that this album was so muchmore. It's now one of my favourite albums of all time, and with good reason.

In this day and age, the whole 'homie rapper' thing is whereing a thin, with egotistical rappers bouncing around and sprining up everywhere. But this album is not, I repeat, is not a rap album. The artists themselves do not describe themselves as rapper. They are rhymers. It's more of a chilled out, calmed down rapper with a positive outlook on life. And that's probably the best way to decribe this album; cool and positive. The guys bounce of each other brilliantly, with a genuine love for what they do. It sounds amazing. Their licks are smooth and smart, full of wit, irony, whatever lititary technique you care to mention. Their contrasting voics add much to the songs, and the group sections are a highlight. But then, where would all these brilliant rhymes be without a good and solid backbeat? Well, this is covered, thanks to DJ Nu-Mark and Cut Chemist, two excellent MCs with a passion and uniqueness to their tracks. There are none of the plain, gangsta rap beats here, but melodic, movin' and interesting beats that match the talent of the rhymers.

In short, a legendary album; truly astounding in every sense of the world. Buy it; you won't regret it - that's a promise.
