4.0 out of 5 stars Cop this LP and Letha Brains Blo, Undastand?, Nov. 6 2003
By 
This review is from: Nocturnal (Audio CD)
I snatched up this gem a few years ago, when I was on a summer vacation in New York (a few years after this was released, it wasn't available in Canada anymore). This album is one of my soundtracks to the summer, my boys and I listened to it straight through at least 30 times! It flows like a river.
Straight up, this is a DOPE and CLASSIC debut release from Ruck and Rock. All you need to know is Da Beatminerz produced it (except "Operation Lockdown" which was produced by E-Swift of Tha Alkaholiks ((anyone one else find that odd?)) nonetheless a perfect song to finish the album). Anyone one who knows the B.C.C knows that each of their debut albums (Black Moon, Enta Da Stage, 1994. Smif-N-Wessun, Dah Shinin', 1995. O.G.C, Da Storm, 1996. & Heltah Skeltah, Nocturnal, 1996) are all classic staples in East-Coast hip-hop, and nobody can argue that all four of the above mentioned albums have REDICULOUS production - all courtesy of Evil Dee, Mr. Walt & Baby Paul; Da Beatminerz.
We all know that "Lefleur Leflah Eshkoshka" feat. O.G.C (track #13), is one of the BEST B.C.C tracks ever created. I just had to shout that track out, but honestly every track is amazing in its own right. If you listen with an open-mind, I guarantee you will love this LP. It's perfect for a dark and/or rainy night. This album has an underlying theme, relative to darkness (in this case you CAN judge the album by the cover).
What places Heltah Skeltah above the average is the way their almost completely opposite styles perfectly compliment one another. Even if you don't like Rock's rugged and raw voice or Ruck's smooth, I don't give a sh*t demeanor; I highly recommend you cop this for the beats alone.
Bottom Line: Intro to Outro, this whole album is sick. 4 stars. Peace.

5.0 out of 5 stars i'm not sure anymore..more... who is knocking at my doordoor, March 21 2004
This review is from: Nocturnal (Audio CD)
yo, the BCC deliver another certified hip hop classic with this joint. this classic LP features ruck and rock in their prime, forming like voltron, backed by butter beats provided by evil dee and the beatminerz. yo for real, they just don't make albums like this anymore, the type of mid-90's hip hop joint that you can throw on and listen to all the way through. not a wack joint on here. i love the dark back alley vibe on this album, ruck and rock have, in my opinion, some of the best deliveries/flows/voices in hip hop! rock's monsterous presence on the MIC will make you tremble in your timbos while ruck's snake-like flow shoots venomous lyrics in your earhole. they complement each other like bread and butter, clouds and thunder. for real... twist a tree to dis and vibe out... classic

nocturnal is a solid album by helta skeltah my favorite songs are
the square soldiers gone psycho & grate unknown( i see the horizon)this album is somewhat of a classic big rock (Rockness monster) & ruckus are a perfect combination in my opinion this album is much better than their second effort magnum force

Man, I remember it like it was yesterday. Commercial rap got the gunn clap and the BCC rained supreme. After the click dropped two back to back "very underrated classics" in Enta Da Stage and Da Shinin, they hit us with Nocturnal. Rock and Ruck had two different styles that complimented each other well. And with Da Beatminerz on production, you new it was going to be dope. There is no filler on the album (amazing how rare it is now), so cop it.
