In 2005, Gym Class Heroes released their Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen debut The Papercut Chronicles, a classic coming-of-age album that spawned the platinum, record-setting Top 40 No. 1 single "Cupid's Chokehold/Breakfast in America" and led to the first of the band’s multiple outings on The Warped Tour. Papercut served up a fresh, new palette for hip-hop: live instruments, ... Read more in Amazon's Gym Class Heroes Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Totally Different 10 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
The official Gym Class Heroes website describes their musical style as "Indie Hip-Hop with a punk-rock sensibility" It's this variation that brings musical interest to the album.
Having bought the album on a recommendation from a friend, I can only pass on the recommendation... it's not an album that I listen to everyday, but it's excellent for something totally different.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hip Hop for Non-Hip-Hop People 26 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
This album is kinda hip hop for the non-hip-hop amongst you. I love hardcore metal and the odd bit of bob marley and the like. I saw this band at the give it a name festival. It was the song Cupid's Chokehold that got my attention. I swear I heard the song before, cos I was singing along but didn't really know how??? (It features Patrcik Stump, who I just realised is the singer of Fall Out Boy).

Anyways, I got this album cos it's brilliant for chillin in the summer. Imagine drinkin a cold beer and having a bbq and maybe a smoke on something not quite legal, this would be the perfect soundtrack.

I also hate to say this but I have to point it out, if you had a secret liking for Crazytown then this is the more credible version. After this album I also got the other one,'As Cruel As School Children'. I'd recomend this one to start with, cos that one ain't as good. And also try to catch them live.

Give it a go even if you don't like Hip-Hop, they'll suprise you!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Quality Album 11 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Like the guy above said this is hip hop with a punk rock sensiblity. Lyrically its miles away from standard independant hip hop, not necessarly BETTER than, just different. Thats why Gym Class Heroes are a BREATH OF FRESH AIR . . By that token they are light years away from any rap / R&B artist littering our charts nowadays with R&B(!!??!!), so dont let them put you off this!!. As vocally dextrous as any MC you choose to mention, Travis McCoy delivers his lyrics with a kind of 'underdog's confidence' covering emotions and subjects that across through a wide range of social and anti social behaviour.
Contrary to most hiphop groups or artists GYM CLASS HEROES are a live band, much like the ROOTS, delivering an eclectic sonic backdrop for the rhymes. At times moody and reflective, this band are perfect for anyone who listens to a skate / punk oreintated sound.
It is very good indeed.
