      This album is a huge disappointment. I appreciate so many Cypress Hill records that I still, to this day, can’t believe that the band who recorded the groundbreaking rap albums in the early 1990s, the band that recorded Cypress Hill IV, Skull and Bones and Stoned Raiders, the marvelous rap record Temples of Boom is the same band that put out this collection of extremely dodgy songs. On this record Cypress Hill have gone for something they should not have gone for. Maybe, on some level it is praiseworthy that they wanted to change their sound and style.

      But, at the same time, change just for the sake of


      change is not always the right thing to do. If you don’t have any specific or worthy plans about where you want to go, you are probably better off sticking to your old tried and tested formula. And the Cypress Hill formula was so solid and consistent.

      It had earned them so many fans that they needed to change absolutely nothing to put out another good record, to make Another Victory, as the opening song on their great 1999 album claims Cypress Hills are used to doing. If one looks at this record from another, maybe a little more positive perspective, then one could say that at least Cypress Hill have proven that they are in a league of their own. By that I mean that with this 2004 album they released a record that does not sound anything like the classic Cypress Hill, but also does not sound like pretty much anything else that was released in the music world at the time, before or after.

      This record is in some kind of vacuum, a feature which would be positive, if only the album did not contain so many bad tracks, to the point of consisting of almost exclusively bad songs. Cypress Hill scrapped many of their strong points in the arrangement. The beats on this record ...

      are very half-alive, very soft and unimpressive.

      The samples present sound stale and unenergetic. The tracks seem to be devoid of any interesting musical ideas. The band have abandoned their character and have found nothing new.

      The rappers B-Real and Sen Dog sound like only shadows of their former selves. B-Real sounds like he has only partial involvement in the whole undertaking, and Sen Dog does not have any power or aggressive energy that he is renowned for. There are no tracks that could match any previous Cypress Hill records in intensity, so the dog (Sen Dog) does not have any reason to show his mighty bark.

      Lyrically, the

      guys dropped the ball just in the same way as they did so musically. I loved Cypress Hill for lyrics that have mature, serious, down-to-earth ideas and stories. On this record, for some reason, the guys decided to go into peculiarly infantile and immature phrases (which does not befit men of their age) and, arguably, for the first time in their extensive careers manage to sound fake and forced.

      I purchased this record a long time ago, as soon as it was released, and I was disappointed as soon as I started listening to it, and I was right to be disappointed. This record is remarkably poor for a band of this caliber.
