4.0 out of 5 stars So Stylistic!!, 13 May 2004
This review is from: So Stylistic (Audio CD)
FannyPack are a girl trio bringing their electro-hip hop style to the game.
Not everybody's taste, but their unique sound is what makes them different to other artists out their. Though they have been compared to the likes of the late 'Salt 'n' Pepa'.
Brooklyn based, these 3 girls (Jessibel - 18, Belinda - 16 & Cat - 23) are putting the fun element back into rap.
They have not had success so far in the U.K. But eventually they may be topping the charts as people become more familiar with their style.
The 1st single 'Camel Toe' was an outrageously funny protest against girls strutting their frontal-wedgies in public. The hilarious video to the larger-than-life song is actually included on the CD. Like most tracks off 'So Stylistic' it is extremely catchy. Take 'Do It To It' for example. The repetitive chorus stays in your head hours on end. The fast beats combined with typical FannyPack lyrics make it an unstoppable joint off the album.
'Sugar Daddy' is quite an explicit sound to this CD exploring more of a sex-related topic. But the humour is obviously continued as the girls take things light-heartedly. Speaking of 'Things' this is track #8 creating a cuter vibe, with simple lyrics that you would find a toddler saying, though annoying it is still effective.
Most of the release's content is suitable for the clubs. Including the Brooklyn bashment 'The Theme From FannyPack', biggin' up their home town and keeping the dance-floor locked. Music on this CD is of a weird mixture with electronic noises combined with DJ and hip hop, a classic example of this is 'Hey Mami' - the 2nd track which becomes too repetitive at times. Maybe the most futuristic sounds I've ever heard is from that of the album's name 'So Stylistic' where FannyPack break-down their music sound for us.
The last songs on the album are very similar. Including 'Boom Boom', System Boomin', 'All Around' and 'Smack it Up'. They all have the dance element, even more so compared to the others infact. Tracks I have not mentioned are actually skits/interludes which contain comedic conversations the girls have with each other, creating an atmosphere to the CD.
I give this 4 stars because this vibe has an acquired taste. If you are into that style, it's cool. But others it won't appeal top at all. Some times you think 'Oh. haven't I just heard this song', which is the main down-fall. But an essential CD still.
