I totally agree with the other reviewer. Paris is amazing and this album is some of the best hip-hop that you'll get to hear but he is'nt french (he's from San Fransisco), he just happens to be called Paris

Just so you know

Paris has been around for a very long time, being one of the "New Jack Swing"/Hip Hop crossover artists from the early 90's. At that time; releases like "The Devil Made Me Do It" proved to be a little too ambitious for the average listener, at a time when Gangsta rap was the order of the day, 2Pac, Biggie Wallace and Warren G/Dre had the bulk of the airplay...

A good friend's parents owned a "Mom & Pop Store" music shop, which meant they stocked a wider selection than mainstream outlets. I first discovered Paris in the early 90's, right away I could tell that this was a totally different beast to the rest. His rhymes are laced with metaphors and deep troubling thoughts, that stick in your mind until long after the album finishes.

This album continues this theme of political, social and economic insights. Listening to his work you can tell that unlike many artists, who focus on getting the beats ultra tight, but say next to nothing worth hearing lyrically, Paris focus is on the words. I have to agree with some others who criticise the weak backing tracks, but if that's the reason you put a CD in the player, I pity you. Many of the topics are difficult to hear and justify within ones self, but regardless are important subjects that should be discussed and given more airtime and consideration in the mainstream, perhaps the music industry would be in a better place if it did?

Tracks like; Lay Low, Agents Of Repression, AWOL and of course, the ubiquitous "What Would You Do?" unofficial theme of the 911 truth movement, add real gravitas to the album. Introducing concepts and subjects that many have already considered for a long time, and it seems very strange to hear them on a hip hop album! It also features Dead Prez, Public Enemy, Kam & Immortal Technique. I admit that Paris is an acquired taste, but I throw down a challenge to anyone who thinks all Hip hop is the same...Give Paris a chance!

This album a is a sonic explosion of politically fuelled, crazy as hell and not gonna take it any more rage, directed at the establishment, at the Man. Fiery, angry and yet eloquent, this is the finest of hip hop, despite the listener neding to be well versed in both fluent and idiosincratic french slang. And even if you can't understand it, the simple sound of indignant and oppressed people shedding their illusions and shredding their comfortable cocoons to get freedom is amazing to hear in such an intrinsically ellegant and beautiful language. Fine music, well made and intense as a bucket of ice water down your neck.
Buy it or regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paris- The Best Ever! 7 April 2004
By Carlton L. Penn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This man has to be the greatest MC ever. Nobody out there, not jay-z, not Dr dre, not any of these so called bling-bling rappers of today's radio rotation would even think about bringing something for people to THINK about in their music. Paris has the delivery of Rakim, the production of Dr. Dre and the polictical vision beyond anyone since the Last poets. Sonic Jihad is a instant collector's CD with not one bad song. Just like The devil made me do it, this CD hits hard with beats and vocals. do yourself a favor and go buy 2 copies of this CD, one to listen to , and one to give to a friend.

It's a CD ........ as long as the CD is not scratced and/or not damaged, I am satisfied with it. It is an older CD, so I already know the songs on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE RETURN OF THE BLACK PANTHER OF HIPHOP!! 13 Nov. 2005
By DWAYNE WATSON - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I HAVE BEEN DOWN SINCE THE "DEVIL MADE HIM DO IT" IN THE 90'S AND NOW PARIS IS REALLY BACK. I FIRST THOUGHT HE RETURNED WITH "UNLEASHED" BUT FOUND IT TO BE COMMERCIAL SOUNDING. NO REAL HARD BEATS AND THE LYRICS JUST DID NOT GRAB ME. THIS ALBUM IS HOT FROM START TO FINISH. IF YOU LIKE PARIS FROM THE DAY THEN YOU WILL FEEL THAT VIBE IN A 2000 STYLE. GET IT NOW!!!! ALSO GO TO HIS WEBSITE AND ORDER DELUX EDITIONS OF HIS OLD CD'S!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ooh Papi of Playahata says... 8 Dec. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The key to knowing if an album is dope: It has over 14 tracks and you do not skip any of them after listening to it over 5 times. This album has 16 tracks and I didn't skip any, what a major accomplishment in 2003. Paris has done something huge. I only hope that this classic won't be treated like a classic GO-GO Music album and ignored. Those of us in the D.C. area feel me on the Go-Go Music treatment.
If you want to know where all the great West Coast artist have gone, look no further. I don't know if Paris is actually considered a great west coast artist by the general public but this album is definitely great, it's going to be a collectors item. This is actually the first Paris album I ever brought and I had not really heard anything from him since 1992' when his name was in the media all the time due to the controversy involving his album's artwork and President George Bush Senior. He has had music released between that time and now, so I am feeling like I must have been missing out on something and I might have to go to his website and order those missed albums. The content on this album is amazingly filled with current historical anecdotes, its academic, political and funky. Nothing soft about it in any aspect so I had to make sure that I purchased the clean version with the bleeping of the curse words - I have kids you know. If you believe in conspiracy theories, you realize that after its official September 23rd release Paris' might just disappear. When the rap intellectuals of today start labeling albums as classic and noting them for historical rap relevance I predict Sonic Jihad will be an album they speak about. If they don't mention it they will be regarded as "suspect" in my book. Most of the album has a real serious west coast feeling but its the type of West coast feeling that everybody used to love when Ice Cube made Death Certificate. I was looking for something to hate on with the album but I couldn't find anything in any of the 16 tracks. I had forgotten that an album could be so entertaining and educational at the same time. All the information in his Guerrilla News Network- Aftermath: Unanswered Questions is on this album in rap form and more. The best thing is that this is more than just a political rap album. The quotes and artwork on the CD alone are worth the purchase. Its a good day for rap music. My Favorites are "Evil", "What Would You Do", "AWOL", "Ave Bushani" and "Split Milk".
