Always a band on the move, unafraid to morph into the next creative phase of their identity, the Jungle Brothers' V.I.P. marks several departures from their earlier efforts. The most notable change is that the JBs are a lot more fun than they ever were.
Whether it's due to the influence of the album's producer, Propellerhead Alex Gifford, or to the JBs snazzy new Hawaiian print shirts, the result is a record that is more upbeat, more danceable, and more party-worthy than any JBs record to date. Instant club hit "Get Down" features a sax sample befitting the work of a French DJ, and a steady Latin rhythm. The Brothers have gone Euro, it seems. Comparisons that spring to mind include Lou Bega with better lyrics and less horns. All this and two tracks featuring the Holmes Brothers make V.I.P. a must-have.

While not their most commercially successful record, RAW DELUXE is nevertheless a solid Jungle Brothers effort and a favorite among fans. Opening with "True Blue," a JBs theme song of sorts, the album does not disappoint. Clever rhymes and subtle rhythms provide backbone to the political message behind cuts such as "Black Man on Track" and "Moving Along."
Highlights include "How Ya Want it We Got It," featuring Q-Tip among others, and the Stereo MCs' treatment of "Jungle Brother." "Bring it On" is the star of the album, however. A call to arms and a warning against complacency, this track recalls the finest moments of the JBs earlier albums. RAW DELUXE may not blaze new trails in rap, but its treatment of old school methods is superb in the Jungle Brothers' deluxe fashion.

Industry Reviews
...the Jungle Brothers represent the avant-garde....Phat tracks like `Changes' sound unaffected by rap music trends of the past four years and prove the J.B.s still got the beat.
Vibe (03/01/1997)

...it's clear that the JBs haven't lost their thirst for hard beats, their art school sensibilities, their anti-sophistication....RAW DELUXE is superb.
