The Sugarhill Gang's self-titled debut album has too many lengthy, mediocre R&B tracks to be truly
great. The hip-hop songs, especially Rapper's Delight, make it worth the listen. There are quite a
few legendary verses on this album that are still referenced today and some very playful, bouncy
beats that make the boring slow jams feel even worse. They just don't live up to the standards set
by the R&B of the 70's. That being said, this album is worth your time for the single alone.
