I don't understand the vitriolic hate towards this album. Well, I guess I do when considering the knee-jerk disdain and cynicism towards anything that is obviously marketed commercially in a blanket fashion, because this music has mass appeal and is approachable to casual listeners. "Mainstream" seems to be such a dirty word among true appreciators of music when it doesn't have to be.



Is it groundbreaking? No. Is the musicianship considerable? No. Are the "emcees" superbly talented? Definitely no. But it's quite entertaining and catchy. My one problem with the album is that two of the signature tracks, "Hacktivist," and "Unlike Us," are carbon copies of one another. Almost in a nauseating, Nickelback kind of way. But "Cold Shoulders" was easy to get into, as was "Blades" and "Hacktivist" for me, personally. I don't think much of "Unlike Us;" too similar to the aforementioned other track and just bland.



Novelty is ok, folks. Appreciate it for what it is rather than what it isn't; I doubt anyone who gave it a favorable review thought it was going to change the face of music, hahaha.

Just saw a video of the band playing 'Niggas in Paris' IN Paris. Way better than the original.

Don't get why the heat. Sounds pretty solid. I'd get why Oceano would be a guilty pleasure, but this.. c'mon.

You only have to watch one of their music videos to know they have more than one "emcee". Review is more average than the album.
