5.0 out of 5 stars friggin amzing Feb. 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
I got this cd as a grab bag present box from the store i work at, and i have to admit i wan't ready for the incredible ryming that was going to occur. The cd blew me away, it was the most amazing surprise of most recent years for me right up next to the new electric company album. I heard my friend say something about the group and i figured i should pick something out that he likes not just because his taste in music is awesome but because if i didn't like it i could give it to him. heh, no way am i giving this to him, maybe i'll burn him a copy until he gets his own, but wow. I don't realy listen to the songs that sound like rock much; not that i'm against rock but the first song of the album doesn't really get me in the mood to listen to the rock songs. Also there is nothing on this album thats inappropriate so ever since i got the cd my little sister barrows it constantly, i'm so glad that my sister has as good of a taste in music as meh. My mom even likes it, everyone that i had listen to the cd likes it.

Volumizer starts off so well. Horns of Destruction, more than any other song on this album or the other two, shows just how well the J's work the English language to a beat. From there, you get another very good song before you hit a pair of songs that are just too radio friendly for my liking. Grown Up and Girl With the World in Her Eyes are good songs, but they aren't the J's at all. Then you get more good Skinnee action with Big Beat Evangelists, which I would say is the "The Good, The Bad, and The Skinnee" of Volumizer. It's the anthem song on the album. The stretch of good songs ends with Pass the Buck, my favorite song on the CD, and the purest "rap" song I think the J's have ever done. Then you hit another downer with Lemon Drop and Sugar & Candy, two songs which I find to be almost unlistenable. Loud Neighbor is stuck in there for good measure, followed by Coming Home, which is nothing more than a closing song. The album is very good, but they need to drop the radio-friendly poppy garbage and stick with the rappin and rhymin that their fans love them for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Whats the Skinnee July 5 2002
Format:Audio CD
The 2 skinnee J's are one of the most original bands out right now. I agree that Volumizer is not as good as supermercado and that Stockholm love should have been kept on the record. However, I think That part of why this record doesn't seem so great is because I've heard all the really good songs before (or the majority) so their were no suprises as to the tracks that I liked. The other thing to remember is that the J's arn't a hip hop band their are, As I like to call them "nerd rap rock" so I can understand tracks like Lemon Drop and others. And while these tracks may seem a little more radio friendly the J's deffinatly didn't sit down and say "I think will right a sugar ray song" If anything these songs show the tallent of the band to be able to preform all sorts of of songs, from the heavy rap of Horns of Destruction to the poppy Lost and Found, they can do it all. While other bands ::cough:: sugar ray ::cough:: can only play those poppy songs. See the J's live and you know that they still are playing all the old favorits so nothings changed. IF your new to the J's buy Supermercado first but Volumizer is still solid.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't deny the force! March 24 2002
Format:Audio CD
FINALLY, what should have been the best album of 2000 will be the best album of 2002. VOLUMIZER has finally been released after nearly two years of delays. Ive had the original on disc since around August of 2000 and still listen to it faithfully. "Stockholm Love" and "Secret Frequency" have been dropped from the original tracklisting, and replaced with "Grown Up", "Lemon Drop", and "Lost and Found". Ive heard people say that these are "commercial" songs, but if you had the original, you would know the two songs they took off were just as "commercial". I don't think the J's are worried about that, just making some of the best and most original music that's out there today. The only thing that i would complain about is that i would have opted to keep the original tracks that they deleted as well, but this album is just too damn good to not get a 5 star rating. Whether your dancing, driving or just sitting around, "Volumizer" is the album to have on. Longtime J's fans will be pleased, and newcomers will be blown away. BUY THIS TODAY!

4.0 out of 5 stars Turning Down the Volume March 23 2002
Format:Audio CD
Unfortunately, as many a Skinnee Soldier is aware, this album has been pushed back and pushed back in its release. To our advantage, all of the ORIGINAL songs on the cd were available online. To our disadvantage, some of those really fun-j'ed out songs have been cut. The songs, "lemon drop", "lost & found" and the ever-radio friendly "grown up" have sadly replaced them. The 2 Skinnee J's seem to have succomb to the record exec's wishes and bubble-gummed up the works of what had the potential to be another dubiously infectious beat laden album. Unfortunately again, with these 3 new tracks, the beats are intermitent and disgracefully hidden and the flow of the cd is not what it could have been. I still highly reccommend this and other 2 Skinnee J cd's, but don't be in a rush to get this one. If you are looking for some great 2SJ material, try "Sing, Earthboy, Sing" or "Supermercado": you know, something before The Man stepped in.
