UK edition of 2003 album features 16 tracks including 2 UK bonus tracks, 'Rock My Shit' & 'What's Goin Down'. Universal.
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 Fergies lush girlie vocals are allowed to dominate, as they do on the discofied "The Boogie That Be." --Rebecca Levine --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

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!
Elephunk opens with "Hands Up". This is the perfect song to open the album. The song is practically guaranteed to get any party started. After this song, I didn't know if the rest of the album could be as good as this song. After hearing the second song "Labor Day (It's a Holiday)", I knew this was going to become one of my favorite albums. The song opens with a catchy hook and then goes into a chorus that sounds like they sampled Madonna's classic "Holiday". It is in the chorus that this song just explodes into something incredible. This is by far my most favorite song on the album and I really hope it is the next single. The next song is "Let's Get Retarded". With a title like that, I didn't know what to expect. Turns out it is another finely crafted dance tune. Some people may be offended by the title, but will.i.am says in the beginning of the song "In this context, there's no disrespect." It is just a simple and different way of saying "Let's party!". The next song is "Hey Mama". The radio version of this song has become one of the biggest hits of 2004. Although that version doesn't appear on this album, the original version is pretty good.Read more ›
