5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all-time favorite rap albums... March 28 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I grew up on the beginnings of rap. Ice-T, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, UTFO... these groups laid the foundations for what was to come. Approximately 10 years later Ton-Loc comes on the scene when rap was at an all-time low (in my opinion) and dance-music ruled the airwaves. Ton-Loc was different and that's what made him unique amongst all other rap artists. I first heard Ton-Loc's Wild Thing and Funky Cold Medina in '89, my senior year in high school. It wasn't until after I graduated that I heard his whole album. A friend of mine had the tape and I practically wore it out when he left it in my car. A lot of reviewers say they dislike Track 10. Me and a friend of mine were building bass systems in our cars before the car audio market started to take hold. Track 10 was and still is THE song we use to test our systems. It's the benchmark we use to this day. Track 10 was perfect for showing up at a friend's house and "announcing" yourself. In later years I ran it through a bass boost filter and made it even more powerful. Move forward 15 years and I'm still listening to this album. I like most every song except for Cheeba and Homies. You just can't find rap like this anymore because it's all been reduced to cussing and demoralization of others. This whole album is so fleshed out, something you don't find in a lot of debut albums. It's timeless in my opinion. I give this one 5 stars because I never get tired of the songs. The music is clean and crisp and sounds great on a decent system. I'm not a big rap fan anymore since most of the music on the radio nowadays is saturated with different incarnations of it, but albums like this take me back to a simpler time when rap was worth listening to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tone-Loc had it goin' on in the late 80s June 16 2003
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
In 1988, Tone-Loc took the pop music world by storm with his immensely popular track Wild Thing and its even spicier follow-up Funky Cold Medina. While this is not gangsta rap or what many listeners might even call serious rap, it did help introduce rap and hip hop to young people such as myself mired in the sputtering realms of generic Top 40 and classic rock music during the late 1980s. I'm not sure that Tone-Loc's throat is the perfect vehicle for rapping, as he sounds like he has a permanent frog in his throat, yet his laid-back style actually works well with his unique sound. Tone-Loc rapped about things almost all young people have in common, thereby making his music much more accessible than the hardcore rap that has never appealed to me. He did lay down a few lines about how talented and cool he was, but he never carried this to excess, nor did he spend any time tearing down other people in the music industry. There is enough profanity on here to merit the Explicit Lyrics tagline, but the language is really pretty tame over all. In one song, he actually uses the words "One, two, buckle my shoe." Any rapper than can say that and still be both tough and successful is a rare talent indeed.
This album is actually filled with good tracks, achieving success outside of its two main hits. On Fire, Loc'ed After Dark, I Got It Goin' On, and Next Episode all share a similar sound, but each of them is a track you wouldn't want to skip over. Cheeba-Cheeba is a lot of fun to listen to, and the fact that it can be seen as glorifying the smoking of a certain type of plant is not important as long as you don't take the song too seriously. Loc'in on the Shaw is a track I could do without, but the album closes strongly, in my opinion, with Homies.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is not the '80s March 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
This CD features Tone Loc's two smash hits from the late 80s, "Wild Thing" and "Funky Cold Medina". These songs are both undeniable rap classics. Unfortunately, the rest of the album is not as good as those two songs. Most of the other songs are pretty forgetable, although "On Fire" is pretty good. The album reaches a definite low point with the five minute long instrumental "Loc'in on the Shaw", which Loc doesn't even appear on. Fans of old school rap may want to get this CD, if only for the two hits.

3.0 out of 5 stars Includes Old School Party Smash April 20 2002
Format:Audio CD
Tone Loc was a toy rapper best known for the irresistible party anthem 'Wild Thing' (the rap tune, not the Garage chesnut). This album includes that track as well as 'Funky Cold Medina' another kitchy hip-hop classic in the wild party boy style that was popular with rappers before the gansta explosion. Nothing wrong with it, if that's what you into. Fine for you big dance parties but not the sort of music that stays in your disc player forever.

4.0 out of 5 stars One time, one time you know... May 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
I remember chillin to Tone Loc way before Dr Dre hit it big with the Chronic stuff. I mean, come on, either you're a cheebah believer or you're not. I admit that this disc isn't solid all the way through, but let's give Tone his props. Wild Thing and Funky Cold Medina are classics, ... buy it! ...
