4.0 out of 5 stars different
the boys are evolving and this is where it all seems to begin as the basslines start to get bolstered with guitar riffs and the much more prominant use of sampled strings to form the melodies starts to kick in. the raps are still there and at the high end of quality, the humour is starting to kick back in again witness Dr.Greenthumb (awesome song) and the boys sound vital...

3.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Cypress Hill albums out now.
Includes Checkmate, Lightning Strikes and Audio x which r wicked. Unfortunately, the other songs aren't so good. if you have money to spare, buy this now, but if not you are better of buying another rap album such as Bone thugs n' harmony: "Art of War" or "East 1999 Eternal".

4.0 out of 5 stars different, 24 Oct. 2006
This review is from: Iv (Audio CD)
the boys are evolving and this is where it all seems to begin as the basslines start to get bolstered with guitar riffs and the much more prominant use of sampled strings to form the melodies starts to kick in. the raps are still there and at the high end of quality, the humour is starting to kick back in again witness Dr.Greenthumb (awesome song) and the boys sound vital again not paranoid not overwhelmed but enjoying the game. probably helps that this album was recorded with the fresh return of sen dog and b-real had got the last of his issues out of the way on the psycho realm project (well worth checking out too) and they could all return to their day jobs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Buy this album!, 6 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Iv (Audio CD)
This is definitely their best in a long time, almost as good as their first album. The opening track, Through The Eye Of A Pig, is extremely dark and powerful and will hook you on the first listening. The album is lyrically excellent with plenty of smooth sounds and hard licks. As usual it's blatantly Cypress Hill - it's all original and not the same old same-old that seems to flood the hip-hop charts. If you only have one Cypress Hill album (and I hope it's the first one!) you'd be a fool not to own this one as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cypress Hill 4 eva, 10 Jan. 2006
This review is from: IV (Audio CD)
Brilliant album, truly raw hip hop from the east side LA kings. A worthy follow up to the also excellent temples of boom, my personal favourites on this album include Audio X, Steel Magnolia, Dead men tell no tales and my favourite Prelude to a Come up. Guest appearances from the already established Barron Ricks and MC Ren from NWA work well on this album. CYPRESS WHAAA

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album good buy love it!, 28 Mar. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Iv (Audio CD)
Great rappin and backbeats from one of the gratest hip-hop bands ever. Cheakmate and Lightening Strikes are the very best. Also Tequila Sunrise, From The Window of my Room, Riot Starter and most of the others are great. All hip-hop fans should love it well worth the trouble to find!

5.0 out of 5 stars A diamond in the rough, 16 Sept. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Iv (Audio CD)
Probably the only truly successful Cypress Hill album. Unlike their previous albums, this one will appeal to the listener first time (the others took time to grow on you).It contains, arguably, some of the best rap songs ever made such as Tequila Sunrise (instantly catchy spanish guitar with an excellent bass and drum riff), Checkmate (much speedier than any track they've done before with a very well done thudding of pianos) and Prelude to a Come Up (a lazy beat and bass topped with a moody piano melody).
Get this album if you are a new listener of Cypress Hill or a fan.

This CD is worth buying for two tracks alone which are 'Dr.Greenthumb' and 'Men Till There's No Men Left'.
