5.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to one of the better rap groups..., 5 Mar 2006

This review is from: Greatest Hits From The Bong (Audio CD)
Throughout their long career, Cypress Hill have been rightfully considered as pioneers in the rap and hip-hop scene, accorded the same reverence reserved for the likes of NWA, Public Enemy and Run DMC.
Their constant advocacy of marijuana use and legalisation was what first attracted notoriety, fortunately over time they have left a much better heritage musically. Their clever deployment of slow rolling bass and drum lines- a technique also used by Dr. Dre and Massive Attack- has become common place in rap. They were amongst the first to fuse rap with heavy metal and form “nu-metal”; and in more recent times they have integrated reggae and latino influences into their work. For all this they must be praised.
Greatest Hits from the Bong, therefore, offers a very good summary of their career: the dirty, grimy hip-hop of “How I Could Just Kill A Man” and “Hand On the Pump”, the classics “Insane In the Brain” and “I Ain’t Goin’ Out Like That”, the nu-metal of (Rock) Superstar, the salsa-tinged “Latin Thugs”. My only criticism is that they should have included more from their debut album (1992) and Black Sunday (1993), when they were really at their creative peak. But that is a small quibble. A good introduction to one of the better rap groups.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, but......, 6 Aug 2011
This review is from: Greatest Hits From The Bong (Audio CD)
Why is it called 'Greatest Hits From The Bong' when it doesn't even have Hits From The Bong on here??? That song cannot be missed off, along with A to the K. Otherwise, awesome
