Product Description

Amazon.ca

Vancouver's Swollen Members are at the forefront of hip-hop's new world order and anyone who doubts it need only consult Monsters in the Closet. Though an odds-and-sods collection with a few new songs, Monsters still sports the kind of guest list worthy of a velvet rope and shifty guys with thick necks. Nelly Furtado, Saukrates, Moka Only, DJ Vadim and, via sample, Sarah McLachlan(!) join Prevail and Mad Child as the pair mash up inky, insistent beats with conscious rhymes and an after-dark menace that seems to seep into the skin. Some moments here are staggering--Prevail's throwdown in "Rockapella" for instance, finds the MC grocery-listing contemporary artists from Crash Test Dummies to Rage Against the Machine, Nice Inch Nails, Grapes of Wrath, 10,000 Maniacs, and Cowboy Junkies among dozens of others, improbably interconnecting their names to make a coherent statement. Furtado sounds positively heavyweight on "Breath" backed by the Members crew at full tilt, while the vaguely cartoonish and obscenely catchy "Bring It Home" is already a classic on par with Len's "Steal My Sunshine," only waaay funkier. --Kim Hughes

Album Description

2002 album from Swollen Members is set to take them to an even higher level. The album includes banging new singles & remixes taking the raw heavy substance of Balance (1999) and combining it with the polished maturity of Bad Dreams (2001). Battleaxe Records.

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible. March 12 2005

Format:Audio CD
I remember waiting months on end for the release of this album.
The day it was released, I bought it. Took it home. Put it in my CD player, and it was horrible right from the start.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Album May 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
Swollen Members is better than most out there currently. Monsters in the Closet is a great album. I have three of their cd's and am planning on buying Balance soon. This isn't the best I heard but it is much better than the US mainstream.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Album by Vancouver's Own Nov. 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
Mad Child and Prevail deliver a solid performance on the Swollen Members latest release from Battle Axe Records, Monsters in the Closet.
As far as remix albums are concerned, this one is pretty damn tight. There's some really cool new takes on some of the tunes from Bad Dreams which make for a great listen, and should probably hold me over until their next LP.
Appearances by Moka Only and fellow Vancouverite Nelly Furtado also add to the mix which makes for a pretty tasty musical gumbo.
Overall, it's another solid outing from the Swollen Members.

5.0 out of 5 stars No doubt about it....... Aug. 12 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
this cd rocks! All the songs are different. There's hip-hop, there's rap, there's underground. It's a mix of all good music. Though, temptation, track 15, is a little bit...uh...rude at some points, but this what makes this c.d a harmless teenagers c.d. The only song I dislike is track 18, but I must admit, it has a catchy tune. Bring it home, one of my fav. songs, it's one of their biggest hits yet, Breath feat. Nelly Furtardo, veryy good song, mixes the sounds of Nelly's pop with their rap/underground/hip-hop talent. Fuel Injected- my fav. song, very very catchy song. I would reccomend this c.d to anyone, it's one of my favs!
