5.0 out of 5 stars Good showcase for underground rappers March 5 2002
Format:Audio CD
"We Came From Beyond" is a good compilation of hip hop acts that (except for the Beastie Boys) are not mainstream successes. (I'll warn you now: the Beastie Boy song is just a remix of "Pass the Mic" from "Check Your Head"). Freestyle Fellowship, Dilated Peoples, Blackalicious and Jurassic 5 are some of the established luminaries in the underground scene and they each contribute a good song to the CD ... "Unified Rebelution" by J5 in particular is a great slippery track -- the best on the album in my opinion. The CD is also great for helping to expose new acts (or ones I'm not familiar with, at least). Eyedea, Pep Love, Mighty Casey, Count Bass D, Atmosphere, AWOL-One, Fat-Hed, and Motion Man all have tracks with a distinctive sound ... it's great to be exposed to so much new talent. The highlights among the new artists are Pep Love's forbidding "Relief" and Mighty Casey's loopy "Liquorland", but they're all worth hearing. The album finishes with a 17-minute tribute to Rob One, and it's a credit to the production that the track uses the same loops throughout and doesn't get annoying or boring. I bought the CD because I like Blackalicious and Jurassic 5 but I'm happy with the whole disc. If you're at all interested in new sounds in underground hip hop, then get it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Blackalicious carries this comp, otherwise it ... Oct. 18 2001
Format:Audio CD
I originally preordered this because it was listed as a Blackalicous/Jurassic 5 collaboration, and that idea alone was enough to.... However, when I got it in the mail I discovered it was just a comp that happened to have Blackalicious and J5 on it, along with a handful of others....
Anyway, I'd already heard the included Blackalicious song (40 oz. for Breakfast) and it's by far one of the best hip hop songs of all time. But again, I'd already had it. THE REST OF THE SONGS ON THE CD DO *NOT* SELL IT. It's quite bad. The J5 song and the Eyedea song are exceptions, but everything else basically....

5.0 out of 5 stars We Came From Beyond compilation is DOPE ! Nov. 7 2001
Format:Audio CD
I just picked up the "We Came From Beyond" compilation.
I really like it.
The new (underground) artists are GREAT!
There are some big names on this album; J5, Beastie Boys, etc. However I bought this CD for the underground acts it features.
I like new stuff.
Pep Love,Motion Man,FatHed,& Mighty Casey are the best lyricists on this CD. (all of whom i had never heard of before this record)
I rate this compilation a 9 (on a scale from 1 to 10)
I would like to see more subculture music for sale on Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars if you just LOVE top 40 "hip hop" & R&B... Nov. 16 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
maybe, just maybe its not too late for you... buy this cd, get it home, lock your door, rub the cd all over your body, put it on, listen up... soak up some cool...and maybe, (no promises), just maybe, it'll get rid of all that WACK in you!!!
MOTION MAN is ridiculously ill (crushes most current MCs).
who could ask for more?
now take off that thong already.
