Release Date: 2000 | Tracklist


Hed's big effort, shoveling the ground upwards, coming from the very deep underground, proving mainstream can be achieved with heavy riffs and screams! Even though they already deserved to be known worldwide with their first LP, this time with better production and few more catchy riffs they earned their place.

The album kickstarts with a cool tune that you might find yourself try and making up electro acoustic voices with your mouth, which is gonna sound quiet funny from outside (no! nevermind and keep singing).
First song itself, introduces the album well, for what it's gonna offer, showing off some heavy energy.

Killing Time, starts and finishes so quick that you might find yourself only trying to understand the lyrics for Jahred shows his talent on rhyming fast enough. The song Feel Good is a cool song, what amazes me most about this song is the outro though.

The bartender song, is 'us' in short words, so common feelings that we all share. Booze n' Depression!
With 'Crazy Legs' the album goes a bit more Hip-Hop, a crazy party song came out with bouncing music along rapping vocals. Not least, i have to admit that producer has done a smart job by arranging the sexy lady vocals.
Next, the album goes chill, slowing down the pace, should appreciate the dj's effort on this one.
The HED energy is back again with 'I got you' followed by Boom, joining underground forces with powerful lyrics.
'what could be better than a Swan Dive into the asphalt?' i think this line shows the crazy talent in composing lyrics.
Album is catchy 'till the end, closing up with a pop-rock riffed song Meadow, although it might seem a little bit dull in the beginning, the outro proves that the band still worked on what sounds like a sell-out.

I consider this album as 'a masterpiece of its genre', a music well done that has funk in it, rock n'roll and hip-hop in it, some politics, attitude and sex and violence in it. (yeah pot and booze too)

I suggest you shape your reviews up, most people in this site expect to read reviews that are as close to professional reviews as they can get. You should try to improve your grammar and avoiding unnecessary explanations like on your first paragraph. Most sputnikmusic users who comment on reviews show certain hostility towards poorly written reviews and even more towards generic juvenile music like nu-metal or metalcore (it's not like there's anything wrong with those genres, they're just very unpopular on this site), and sometimes these users can ve bery rude. So you better take some precautions next time you write a review.

I'm totally going to pos this.
It is certainly one of the most atrocious things that I've ever bothered to read.
It deserves a pos for that epic reason alone- it's the worst I've ever seen.

TO THE REVIEWER:

I have bestowed upon you a positive vote. However, rest assured, it is not a vote saying that this review was well done. It is an honorary pos for writing one of the worst reviews I have read upon this site.
