Customer Review

on 27 October 2011
Fun Lovin' Criminals are one of those acts that have not captivated the average music fan's imagination, despite the fact that the group is still going strength to strength, with an album due out in November of this year. However, if your musical tastes were rooted in the 1990s, then tracks like Scooby Snacks and The Fun Lovin' Criminals are probably etched into your minds, with its catchy rap vocals backed with some of the finest soul-rock from that era. Luckily, for those trying the group out for the first time, Come Find Yourself is an essential introduction into this rather under-rated act.
The albums acts like a journey of melodic grittiness, with some venturing into a glorified gangster lifestyle (King of New York), angst (Passive/Aggressive) , and the law in its own lyrical manner (Crime and Punishment. Not every track is flawless- the cover of We Have All the Time in the World sounds like a clone of the Louis Armstrong's classic version, with their vocalist singing instead- but there should be enough variety to keep you listening to this album until the very end.
Come Find Yourself makes Fun Lovin' Criminals have a solid place in the 1990s with its mixture of soul variants (funk, acid-jazz, rap, et al) with a rock backing that put some later rock-rap acts to shame- Limp Bizkit anyone?- in a package that is well worth a listen to.
