Product Description

Amazon.ca

Black Eyed Peas have at times been accused of sounding too Tribe for their own good, but this time out Will.i.am and crew have consciously expanded their horizons. Problem is, perhaps they've tried too hard. As the title suggests, Elephunk borrows from every single element of funk known to man and (with the exception of the one straight-out rock & roll track, "Anxiety") tries to cram them all into a semi-hip-hop format. While such willingness to experiment is admirable, in this case the attempt comes off as slightly desperate and too diffuse. Elephunk settles itself into a groove when BEP's newest member Fergie’s lush girlie vocals are allowed to dominate, as they do on the discofied "The Boogie That Be." --Rebecca Levine

4.0 out of 5 stars New to Hip Hop! June 13 2012
By C. Preston TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The Black Eyed Peas were definetly original when this CD first came out. They were a nice blend of ecclectic musicians & performers blended into one. Of course Fergie provided the sultry bluesy R&B elements, not to mention the eye candy for their fanbase, Will.i.am great leader for the Hip hop element & overall frontman...the two of them great together & the other members great additions to the group for that Latin flavour too! Their performances are always full of energy & electric..you always know they will be turned in the clubs and will get you up dancing.

The songs I liked:

Hey Mama (nice reggae rhythm....can you feel that Jamaican rum flowing! Ha! Ha!),Shut Up (also loved, loved the video for this track), Latin Girls (loads of that Latin rhythm; just want to Salsa now!), Sexy ( well I don't need to explain any reasons for loving this one! Ha! Ha!), The Apt. Song ( nice combo of Latin, Hip hop & R&B rhythms....reality based lyrics!).

Even though this CD is several years old...check it out it still sounds great in 2012!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums I've ever heard Oct. 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is absolutely awesome, and has something for everyone. It brings together R&B, Rap, and Jazz with socially conscious lyrics. There is not a single song that I don't like on it. Fergie, the newcomer to this group, definately adds a new feel to this album.
1) Hands up - a high energy start to the album. The saxophone on this song is very jazzy, and has the whole song has a bit of a retro feel.
2) Labor Day - Pure Fun. You can really dance to this song.
3) Let's Get Retarded - This song starts out by saying that it means no disrespect (look up the lyrics if you're concerned about it) Actually, it uses "retarded" to describe losing control of your body when you dance. Anybody who listens to more than just the chorus of this song would realize this.
4) Hey Mama - Has a latin, almost jamaican, feel. Sounds a little like Sean Paul's "Get Busy." Fun song.
5) Shut Up - Fergie shines on this song! More pop sounding than the rest of the album, but it still has a groove. Fergie's vocals alone make this song worth listening to. Beautiful.
6) Smells like Funk - This also has a retro feel to it. Nothing particularly spectacular about this song, but it's still solid.
7) Latin Girls - Very latin feel to this one. Another fun song to dance to.
8) Sexy - Funktastically Beautiful Song. They did a nice job mixing the piano into this slower song.
9) Fly Away - This song is my absolute favorite - Fergie really shines on this one. A wonderfully free song... you just have to hear it.
10) The Boogie that Be - Mostly rap, with a classic sound to it.
11) The Elephunk Theme - An exotic song, with melodies that sound middle-eastern or Indian, blended with aggressive rap.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been way better Aug. 7 2005
Format:Audio CD
I know this album could have been iller than this, I mean, its the Black Eyed Peas! Some songs were undoubtedly good, but theres something missing about the songs. Weird..I dont what it is though.
I don't really like it, but if you do buy it you won't hate it either.

5.0 out of 5 stars It aint 5-o, that's the funk, yo! Nov. 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is the best dance/funk CD that I've heard in a while. I'm not into urban very much, but I love this album. I enjoy the Peas' top 40 hits, especially "Let's get retarded". The one, non-charting hit that especially impressed me is "The boogie that be". It's got a fantastic beat and I really dig those funky sirens. They totally make the song! Although it's a very basic dance track that doesn't have a lot of instrumentation, it has such a great sound that totally makes up for it! It reminds me of Daft Punk's "Face to face", off their album "Discovery". If you liked "Boogie that be" you will love "Face to face". Anyway, Elephunk is an excellent CD. Get it, play it, love it!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars elePHUNKTASTIC Sept. 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this cd for my niece and I ended up listening to it more often. It is not so much about the offensive lyrics that some of the songs have that I did not let my niece listen to it but because I genuinely like this album. This is refreshing as oppose to most of the gangsta rap and those bling,bling,bling mediocre rap that dominates the airwave and mtv. Metal rap is okay since it provides outlet for those teenager angst that every teenager goes through as long as there is this label for explicit lyrics. Four stars for this album since 1)I think it is so irresponsible for them not to put a warning and 2)there were two songs that are just filler, other than these reasons this is THE PARTY album. You can help but shake and sing along.BEP could still make it through the mainstrean arena without the help of Mr.J.T. with this fine crafted album but then, you get by with a little help from your friends.

6. Smells Like Funk: 8.5/10
7. Latin Girls: 7.5/10
8. Sexy: 2/10 Low point of album, stupid beat, stupid lyrics
9. Fly Away: 10/10 Great slow song
10. Boogie That Be: 9/10 Another great beat
11. APL Song: 7/10 Pretty good song, grows on you
12. Anxiety: 7.5/10 Almost same beat as "retarted"
13. Where Is The Love: 10/10 Great song with powerful lyrics 1st single
