2 Skinnee J's is one of those bands that are hard to classify, and that's a big part of their appeal. A mix of hip-hop, rap, rock, their music belongs in a category all its own, and if you liked the J's other albums, you'll enjoy this one too. If you've never heard 2 Skinnee J's, well, it's hard to find anyone else to compare them with. Check them out!
I think this is the smoothest sounding J's cd yet. It's solid all the way through, whether they're rockin' and rhymin' fast with "i can't hear you"; or slowing it down some with "inside my room"; or even spending some time to bust out political messages in "who wants this?". And in every song, the J's mix it up with their typical creative lyrics. In fact, that's probably the biggest disappointment of the cd: no words of the lyrics are included.
While "Sexy Karate" may not have the manic energy of "Super Mercado", there is still plenty to enjoy, and you have to enjoy any band that is as original as 2 Skinnee J's. On their last cd, "Volumizer", some fans complained about songs along the lines of "Lemon Drop" and "Grown Up", but I don't think those fans will have anything to complain about this time. Solid J's all the way through.
This is the kind of band you'd like to see last forever. But like they say, I guess, all good things...
