4.0 out of 5 stars Live Dec 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
The 2Skinnee J's Music always comes off better live than it does on plastic. From way back in the day, when all you could have was sing earthboy sing and bootlegs, to the newest collection of material in order to know the intensive electrifying presence of those deemed 2 skinnee, you must see them live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Knock It!!! Aug. 21 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've heard a few people knock this CD, saying that the J's didn't make as good a CD as their previous 2. I personally think this is fantastic. Being that last J's cd, I think their idea for this CD was to make one w/ the music they wanted to play. This CD got very little radio play, because it seems it wasn't aimed at appealing to the masses, instead it was a CD of fantastic J's music for J's fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Originality still reigns supreme!!!! June 12 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
WOW! This is the best 2SJ record yet. Finally they are free from the prison of record labels and radio stations. I'm not surprised that I didn't hear any of these tracks on the radio. They didn't have a label paying off the radio jocks this time! For those who have watched the J's progression, Sexy Karate makes sense. Little by little they have developed from a jokester party band to innovative and original music pioneers. The closest band that they resemble, is the Beastie Boys who started with "License to Ill" and ended up with "Hello Nasty". I bet a lot of people who were introduced to the band through their radio singles will not be into this record. Good. Let the people with taste buds for something different sample the aural delights that this band serves up.

After listening to the album repeatedly for a number of weeks, I decided that I loved the songs on the album as separate entities, but for some reason I didn't feel like the CD as a whole was all that good. I tried changing the order to see if that fixed it, which it did a little bit, but eventually I figured it out. SuperMercado had Riot Nrrrd, Volumizer had Grown Up. Both of those songs (although I don't think Grown Up is anything close to the best song on Volumizer) were singles that got some airplay. Sexy Karate doesn't have a single to give it an air of legitimacy. We Can't Hear You and One Summer have received (very) minimal airplay, but frankly, they shouldn't ever have been offered as singles. Get in the Van and Next Big Thing are the best two songs on the CD, and the two that were offered for radio listeners aren't even close to those two. The CD doesn't hit the same ruts that Volumizer does, and because of that I gave it the same rating that I gave Volumizer, but I feel like the progression is clear. SuperMercado was incredible, Volumizer was great, but not AS great, and Sexy Karate is merely very good...which I think has to be a credit to the J's. I can only hope that this is not, in fact, their final album.

3.0 out of 5 stars Loyal J's Fan Steps on the soapbox April 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
I've been listening to the J's for a few years now and my rating of 3 stars for this album is relative to their other albums. Since the SuperMercado days we've been seeing a steady decline in the wit content in their albums, as well as a marked increase in their attemps to market their songs to a more brain-dead Top 40 audience. Amidst rumours of the band breaking up this summer this album seems like a last ditch effort to make their sound more appealing to the masses -- at the cost of the wit and sound that I think makes them (or made them) so unique. Don't get me wrong, in contrast to a lot of the other radio fodder out there this album is worth listening to. For any potential new J's fans I would advise getting SuperMercado before delving into some of their later works. J's still kick it as a whole!!
