Ever since his ELE album its been pretty much downhill for the ex-LONS member. I remember hearing this album in '96, when I was relatively new to rap, and all my friends acting as though the classic 'Whoo-ha' track was the only track on the friggin' album! That is not doing this LP justice. Busta's clever twisted humour shines throughout the album, and you could tell that after his previous failures how much he felt he had to impress. On this album Busta's wildness is only matched by ODB, and with that wildness comes uniqueness, giving Busta a sound only he could create, making people sit up and pay attention. Classic tracks like 'Whoo-ha', 'Flipmode squad meets Def Squad' and 'Abandon Ship' keep this album forever in my memory. Even tracks like 'It's a Party' are well respected by real heads, cos it was an expression of hip hop culture at the time, unlike now, where a hip hop act and R n B act are put together every 2 seconds purely for financial gain. Top album.
