Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

If you love energetic beats coupled with explosive lyrical content then Blackout! is your album. This highly anticipated effort features the combined powers of the Wu-Tang Clan's Method Man and the Def Squad's Redman--it's 19 cuts of pure excitement. Production highlights include the RZA-produced "Cereal Killer," Erick Sermon's "Maad Crew," and the dark-and-dirty sounds of "Run 4 Cover," featuring the Wu's Ghostface Killah and Streetlife. The album remains focused throughout without trying to appeal to any specific audience. Lyrically Red and Meth consistently come with the best in wit and wordplay, weaving a musical tapestry that should hang on the wall of any hip-hop fan. You won't find any specific messages, themes, or philosophies, but any true head will tell you that Blackout! is hip-hop at its best. --Kenji Jasper

Indeed. I do not like rap music much at all. When this album was given to me as a present in my mind i said.. "Oh lord" and all the rap cliches ran through my head "i f***** this b****, and i got the bling bling"..... I almost threw it away in their face. But i restrained, and even better, listened to it front to back. It seemed that the almighty god himself turned my head... I could not bleieve my ears.... Rap music that sounds good? How is this possible? I would consider this one of the sigle strongest cd's in my collection of strong cd's..... and the only rap cd i own.... Make no mistake... i listened to many many albums after this perticular one that did not involve these two artists.... and they all were as i figured rap to be.... this is THE gem of rap music. Top 50 albums of all time....... this makes it......
I dont know about all that "keeping it real" crap some of the true rap fans talk about.... but if this doesnt have it.... it doesnt need it.... it needs nothing.... except to be in your collection

I'm really too late to get this album,
Sometime I blame myself too,
First of all, I'm a quite big fans of Mr. Meth!
I love his Voice, his Flow and his Style!
He's one of my favorite Rapper from Wu Tang, no doubt!
and I really love Funk Doc too,
because this guy is just as crazy as Meth Tical for me, haha!
I still believe they're the perfect duo in hip hop history!
I'm not mean they create the best music,
but they mix perfectly!
Anyway,
This album is TIGHT!!!
Both Rapper is at their Best,
Spit fire, Raw lyrics and real as hell!
No Commercial RnB Hip Pop stuff, just str8 Hip Hop
I highly recommend this to all rap fans!
And this is a must have for Red or Meth Fans!
A Special Joint - Just an Intro
Blackout - The Beat is Nice, Very Nice Opening track! 4.5/5
Mi Casa - Banging Beat! 5/5
Y.O.U. - Wow~ This Beat sound crazy! Meth and Docta is so Nasty and Hot in here! 5/5
4 Seasons - Another Nice Beat, feat. LL Cool J and Ja Rule, LL Cool J is alright, since his 4,3,2,1 feat. Red and Meth too, But I got problem for Ja, Why he's here? He's probably the worst one in here! 4.5/5
Cereal Killer - Rza Produce this song, Hmm..... Rza totally lost his Old Wu Tang Style, but this beat is DOPE! a Dope Song! 5/5
Da Rockwilder - This song is Crazy! Very Nice uptempo,
Meth is Mad in here, He bust an amazing verse and prove himself is a dope rapper,
He just simply give you one more reason to love him,
Redman is fine but Meth is far too incredible!!!
only complain is it's too Short, anyway, IT'S MAD NICE AND DOPE!

Redman is known as one of the funniest, craziest, most clever lyricists in the game. Method Man can hypnotize people with his smooth, confident flow, and is the (commercial) star of the Wu-Tang Clan. We can expect nothing less than a great album. I actually expected a little more from two such accomplished artists, but this CD leaves little room for complaint.
The rhymes are all good. Both artists have similar senses of humor and clever rhymes throughout. Redman is actually the better lyricist in my opinion, but I still prefer Meth because of his voice and flow. Red and Meth compliment eachother well that way. The switch between Meth's mellow voice and Red's thick one adds variety, as do the differences in their flows. They have a lot of different types of flows on here to match with the different beats. On DJ Scratch's "1 2 1 2," they have a brisk, on-point flow. On "Blackout!" their flows are more up-beat and energetic. On "Cereal Killer," it's more dark and sneaky. The way they switch up their styles to match the different beats is one of the things that makes this album great and helps the songs stand out.
The lyrical content itself is good and bad. Red and Meth are funny and clever, no question, but they couldn't make a serious-sounding track if their lives depended on it. None of their songs are about anything. Even though their verses are good, they start to run together a little bit. Their lines are better in some songs than others. There's nothing truly wack on here, but not very many stand-out tracks either. "Cereal Killer" is kind of narrating a story, so that one is nice, but for the most part it's easy to lose track of the lyrics from one song to the next, even with dope lyricists like these.

Wu-Tang is great, but i have never been ipressed by Redman as a solo. His rhymes seemed cheesy and the songs, although catchy, always seemed to wear on me quickly. Method Man has shined in the past in both solo (Tical) and group efforts, and Blackout is no different.
The chemistry between red and meth is undeniable, which is the strength of the album. Whether or not they are taking turns or alternating rhymes, it always seems to fit together.
There are some real bangers on this album, especially the singles 'da rockwilder' and 'tear da roof off.' however the more subtle beats and flows seen in '4 seasons' and 'cereal killer' seems to cater more toward meth's style (cereal killer is produced by RZA), and are two of my favorite tracks. a song more geared toward red's flow is 'fire in tha hole,' an uptempo track where red shines. ghostface comes on the track on 'run for cover,' a welcome cameo.
method man is one of my favorite emcees, and i was worried when he collaborated with red, especially rhyming over erick sermon tracks. but the truth is it worked. this isn't an introspective album by any means. it does not make you think and does not change who you are. but it doesnt say anywhere that those qualities are a prerequisite for a good album. Blackout is pure....fun for lack of a better word. you can't help but nod your head and follow along as meth and red tear through the tracks. i was doing this despite low expectations
