Fanny Pack - So Stylistic - Cd
Top customer reviews
Whilst nothign quite matches up to Cameltoe, songs such as Hey Mami, Sugar Daddy and the infectious title track come close and are great tracks in their own right.
Looking at them you might dismiss them as Sugababes wannabe's but don't make that mistake. Whilst they don't quite pull off an entire album of foot-stompers, this is well worth a look.
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.
Personally i dont mind them but its good to finally hear a song about them.And the cover has kept me company on the long quiet nights in!
If you like your pop thren buy a fannypack!!

These girls, picked from their prime, were showcased whole and (presumably) candid alongside phat retro 808 beats, and present a solid combo that leaves most modern wannabe electro grasping in comparison. These girls epitomize "fly," as only the mid-90's can mean (ala Deee-Lite), which is funny because this album didn't even come out until the early 2000's, about 5-10 years too late for the peak era of the style. As such, they were (unfortunately) largely overlooked in their heyday (except for Camel Toe, which got radio play), probably because of the timing of the album release (was it just retro too soon???).
Granted, their "bubblegum" approach also probably distanced some people who normally like dance music of this nature. For example, while I find it infectious to a certain extent, "Things" is so trite, it's borderline asinine. No, scratch that, it only barely crosses over into "acceptably asinine." Oh wait, except I love it for that, because it is so "bad," it's good! Kinda like a "B" movie. It's obviously no Tchaikovsky, and it knows that fact and capitalizes on it to make the song pretty funny (if not a bit overly simplistic). But like this one, most tracks on the album are catchy and fun, and I can feel good listening to them instead of trying too hard to analyze.
I personally find the album in general to be knowingly tongue-in-cheek, fun, and hard-knockin' at the same time! Don't expect some amazing new twist on electronica, no poignant lyrics, no beats that have never been done. Do expect a fun and silly ride that does not take itself too seriously, but delivers solid pop tracks that keep you hooked for weeks. For real, I can't get this album (especially `Hey Mami') out of my head! I have dropped this album on a few unsuspecting folks that never heard of it before (in the late 2000s/early 2010s!), and have had nothing but positive feedback.
In closing, this is a time stamp that gives a great window into casual NY street beats of the era it was released in. People were/are partying over there and having fun doing it, and this album shows it!
