I was given a copy of So... How's Your Girl (their first album) some time before I knew this was released. It blew me away! Humourous hip hop is really, really difficult to do without becoming absurd and often embarrassing. However, here the humour does not impinge on the sheer quality of this album. If you want pure, unadulterated hip hop, this is not for you - there are a few singing songs... but they are good ones!
Though the humour does not impinge on the quality of the album, I have chosen to delete the skits - though they are witty. As with So How's Your Girl, some of the individual are utterly excellent. Are You Down With It rocks, and The World's Gone Mad is an anthem. Lord Finesse's contribution to Rock and Roll (could never hip hop like this) is one of the Funky Man's funkiest moments - his rapping here can hardly be bettered!
If you like chilled tunes and innovative hip hop, this is the one for you. If you don't like hip hop mixed with singing, stay away.
