Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Black Eyed Peas' debut, Behind the Front, may sound thoroughly familiar: like A Tribe Called Quest, they sprout positive, deftly delivered lyrics out of their light jazz, R&B, and funk tracks; like the Roots, this multi-ethnic outfit's three MCs drop science in front of a live band that builds its grooves organically; and at their best, such as on the pop and reggae-flavoured "Karma", the group can out-Fugee the Fugees. For some reason, though, the mostly mild, largely scratchless and sample-free record can--at times--be downright tepid. But for the most part, it works--sometimes brilliantly--and as a break from the mostly belligerent voices in hip-hop's mainstream, we can definitely use more of what the Peas have to offer. --Roni Sarig

5.0 out of 5 stars ... July 14 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was first addicted to the Peas after buying Elephunk, their third studio album, and since then have bought both this album and their second release, "Bridging the Gap." All three of the Peas' albums are amazing though... true hip hop, with a positive message. Whether or not you are a fan of hip hop, you should give this group a try. I am so glad I did.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, But Not as Good as Elephunk April 11 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Boring? What are you thinking? Right now I'm listening to my album and I can definitely say it is one of the greatest albums I've heard in a long time. It's not like other albums, Just the same songs. Behind The Front has it's own unique style and flow in all the songs. There are only a few I can say are not good, Duet and Love Won't Wait. I love the Gameshow bit at the end of Movement and Fallin' Up, and I love El Neenio :D Rock On BEP! I can't understand while this album never kicked off into sucess. (...)Anyway, Buy this Album, It ROCKS

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring June 25 2003
Format:Audio CD
This cd is very tiring. I am a generall B.E.P. fan and I know that they have potential and can do much better. The beats on this cd, Behind the Front, are weak and repetitive. Spend your money on Skankonia by Outkast, or Elephunk, the later cd by this group.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but look to the planets. Aug. 1 2002
Format:Audio CD
I'm still so surprised that no one ever feels like mentioning the Digable Planets when this album comes up. I was hoping for a continuation (or close to) the DP sound, and it was OK. Some tracks are good, most are a little mediocre. All I can say is yes, the Roots, Gangstarr/1st Jazzmatazz...essential but Blowout Comb and Reachin' by the Digable Planets are mandatory and will blow you away if you liked Black Eyed Peas.
