Review Summary: The best KRS-One album.

0 of 2 thought this review was well written

With this album, KRS-One decides to go solo, and with that decision, he made another classic album. This album has KRS-One rhyming with a style that he has never done before. With this album, he rhymes about a wide array of topics as usual, such as, police, racism, and more. I'm shocked that The Source magazine didn't give this 5 mics (they gave it 4 mics, which is the same rating Rolling Stone magazine gave it.) Now for the track by track review.

1. KRS-One Attacks: The album opener. A classic song, with a great beat by DJ Premier. This song has been sampled in songs such as, Habitat by Mos Def, and other songs. 5/5

2. Outta Here: A classic track, with great production from DJ Premier. This song samples The Moment I Feared by Slick Rick. 5/5

3. Black Cop: A classic track. This song talks about black police. 5/5

4. Mortal Thought: A classic track, with great production from DJ Premier. 5/5

5. I Can't Wake Up: A classic track, that features production from both DJ Premier, and KRS-One. This song has been sampled in, Talking In My Sleep by Elzhi, and other songs. 5/5

6. Slap Them Up: A classic track that features the deceased Ill Will, who has a fantastic appearance. 5/5

7. Sound Of Da Police: A classic track, that has KRS-One talking about the police, over a fantastic beat by Showbiz. This song has been sampled in songs such as We Run N.Y by Redman, The Main Ingredient by Pete Rock And C.L Smooth, Where Am I? by Redman, I Get Down Like That by Redman, Takeover by Jay-Z, and plenty of other songs. 5/5

8. Mad Crew: A classic track. This song has been sampled in songs such as, Keep Their Heads Ringing by Dr Dre, and plenty of other songs. 5/5

9. Uh Oh: A classic track. 5/5

10. Brown Skin Woman: A classic track. 5/5

11. Return Of The Boom Bap: A classic track. 5/5

12. P Is Still Free: A classic track. 5/5

13. Stop Frontin: A classic track. 5/5

14. Higher Level: A classic track. 5/5

This album gets a 5/5, and 10/10.
