5.0 out of 5 stars Violent J tells a story that's hard to forget... June 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
When i first thought about buying this CD i knew nothing about it except that it was Violent J's solo EP & that it was a twisted tale of The Wizard of Oz. My first listen to this album told me that it was amazing! Everything about it makes me want to hear more. Every track is another part of the story (well, except for the bonus tracks) and the story is one you'll never forget. The only way i can describe this album is through a track-by-track review which is shown below:
1.) Intro - A short intro in which J is smoking & informs the listeners that he's gonna tell them a story.
2.) Let It Rain (9/10) - Nice way to start out the story. Violent J is simply chillin' in Detroit, waiting on some of the local junkies to come around. I don't want to give away too much of the story but let's just say by the end of this track J's definitely not in Detroit anymore.
3.) Yellow Brick Alleyway (10/10) - Wow this track is crazy! Upon his arrival in Fantasy *** Fantasy Land J discovers he's now a hero and is on his way to meet the Wizard of the Hood.
4.) Homies 2 Smoke With (10/10) - This is a really nice slower song. J and The Scarecrow (played by Monoxide Child) trade some verses about smokin & by the end of this track they're both on their way to the Wizard.
5.) Thug Whillin' (9/10) - This track is WAY more edgier than the previous one, it contains alot more metal sounding effects in the background. In this part of the story, J & Scarecrow are ambushed by Tin Tizzle (aka Jamie Madrox) and once again, by the end, are all on the way to the good Wiz.
6.) Horrible Horrifying (9/10) - A darker sounding track. J, Scarecrow & Tin Tizzle head through a dark forest on their way & are attacked by the Lion (voiced by Blaze Ya Dead Homie).

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Psychopathic releases Nov. 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is really cool. Forget what all the haters say. Ever wonder why they are writing a review of an album that they suposedly hate but seem to know everything about? Anyway, Violent J comes through in spades with entertainment value on this one. Every song on here is awesome. Of course, ya gotta listen to it in order to catch the story. It's actually an EP based off the Wizard of the Hood song from ICP's first album Carnival of Carnage. But this is way updated with new music and guests from Psychopathic. First J encounters a stoner scarecrow played by Monoxcide. They then meet the gansta wanna be Tin Man played by Madrox. Next the trio runs into the not so cowardly lion played by Blaze. It all ends at the Wizards Palace which features ABK as a palace guard and Shaggs as The Wizard himself. The Album also features to two songs that are not part of the story but awesome as well. So if anyone doesnt have this yet, what the lleh are you waiting for?! Go get it now and stay down with the clown!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Obvious Genius Oct. 3 2003
Format:Audio CD
Violent J, how do I respect thee? Let me count the ways. I guess it was sometime after hearing Bob Dylans 'Blonde on Blonde' with a friend that he turned me onto a fellow by the name of Violent J. I was intrigued by Violent J's take on the dustbowl/depression era United States when he released Wizad of the Hood; an obvious ode to the current state of inner city neighborhoods. Violent J is outspoken and reveals much about himself and his perceived enviroment on this release. "Shiney Diamonds" for instance is a track about the out of reach pleasures that humans are forced to believe they can achieve. "Let it Rain" is a great tune concerning the weather and it's unpredictability. The standout song, without a doubt, is "Homies 2 Smoke With", this song is a somber allusion to the fact that as people, we need not concern ourselves with the materialistic aspects of life. In reality, all we truly need are some homies to smoke with. Violent J transcends the clown-rapper genre here and enters a realm which has not yet been infiltrated by rapping clowns. This album is truly destined to be a cornerstone of modern clown-hip hop as well as a classic for years to come. Truly a great outing as well as a realistic, gritty, down to earth sign of the times. Worthy of 10 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Another in the long line of trash... Sept. 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album gets two stars because it starts off with a little of that real old school ICP style, the kinda feel that made Ringmaster and Riddle Box what they are...but then falls off into their current garbage state...Everything post-Milenko is just a big steaming pile of garbage, they were never very good in the first place, but they were funny...they had a certain "entertainingly stupid" appeal to them...but now it's just gone far past that into preachy, retarded nonsense...The Wraith is a complete disgrace to the music industry as a whole and this album isn't really that much better...how ICP continues to have the huge fan base that they do is beyond me, I thought for sure The Wraith would finally open a few people's eyes but everyone seems to just go on worshiping them unquestionably....I don't get it. One thing good I can say about Violent J and the whole Psychopathic crew is they have an eye for merchandise, I'll always love their clothes and jewelry and whatnot...it just aggravates me that wearing any of it makes everyone assume that I'm a big fan of their music...Oh well...All I can really say about this CD is thank god I didn't pay for it...

5.0 out of 5 stars GO AND BUY THIS PSYCHOPATCHIC CD NOW
This CD is one of Psychopatchic's best. Violent J's 'solo' is about him going through Oz with nothing but his bag of smoke to get him through. Read more
