    Editorial Review

    The History of Rock arrives as the sort of superstardom-celebrating release that can buy a hot-selling artist time. (Think, say, G N' R Lies.) After 8 million (and counting) sales of 1998's Devil Without a Cause, the trailer-rockin' rapper is out to remind the world that it hardly started there. Mostly drawn, and often retooled, from his out-of-print Polyfuze Method and Early Mornin' Stoned Pimp, these tracks display a "funky country hick" already on point with his knowing, hardheaded combo of old-school beats and classic-rock guitars. An "American Bad Ass" for sure, but also an artist who could come only from America, Kid Rock brings the noise--not to mention the bread and the circus. --Rickey Wright ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars From a TRUE Kid Rock fan to another
    You see some Kid Rock haters bash this cd and other cd's of his,but don't be fooled by crude criticism that lays withing the Feminem fans and such... This cd is cool,NOT his best by any means,but still a very cool cd... The intro really sets off the power and energy to the first song which happens to be my all time favorite,American Badass,which if you bought this cd just for one kick rearing song alone,would be well worth the purchase by itself... A couple of the songs like *uck you blind are a bit harsh and the lyrics are a bit repetitive,but you will find that even though,as a whole,the cd itself might not be as great as his others,I would still by this cd over ANY Metallica cd that some of these wankers try to downplay his music too...Kid Rock has a wide deversity of musical talent,that allows him to dwelve into Rap, Rock, Country, SUCCESSFULLY,which the hard core metal bands will never able to do... My rating is about 8-10,

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Awesome Kid Rock Album. May Only Apply for Fans.
    A lot of people don't like this album, but i'm a big Kid Rock fan so I loved it. This might have something to do with me liking it and other people not liking it. This album is quite literally "The History of Rock". Well, Kid Rock anyway. It's an anthology of his older stuff with some newer stuff here and there. Some of its rap and some of its rock, but pretty much all of it is good. His older raps flow together great and I truly think this is one of Rocks best. Here are the tracks:
    American Bada$$: Great song. Rockin' beat. One of Kid Rocks best.
    Prodigal Son: Terrific lyrics. Really good song.
    Paid: A rap song. Kid sounds a lot different. This song is allright.
    Early Mornin' Stoned Pimp: Awesome song. The lyrics are great and funny. They flow together so well. Terrific.
    Dark & Grey: Great lyrics. A mix of rock and rap. Very cool song.
    3 Sheets to the Wind: This song is an older Kid Rock song. It's kind of cool to see how much his style has changed.
    Abortion: This song is allright. The guitar is really good.
    I Wanna Go Back: Very cool rap song. The rhymes in this one flow so well and it sounds so naturaly as if he put no thought in.
    F**k That: This is a f**kin awesome song. Great chorus.
    F**k You Blind: This song is pretty cool. The lyrics are kinda stupid, but other than that...
    Born 2 B A Hick: This song is hilarious.
    My Oedipus Complex: Shows a lot of aggression. Really good though.
    Really good album. A-

    Editorial Review

    Yes, she did. Even if the title track's chorus is a blatant rip-off of the Barbra Streisand/Barry Gibb duet, "Woman in Love," it's still darn catchy--much more than anything from 1999's ...Baby One More Time (save the album's fab title tune, of course). With the rest of the 12 songs here, the teen queen pretty much delivers a remake of her last album. Songs like "What U See (Is What U Get)" and "Stronger" show Swedish songwriter-producer Max Martin in his element, churning out another and yet another slick smash with staccato synth beats and heavily overproduced melodies. But even at his strongest points, he can't bury Britney's voice far enough below the virtual guitars--and it's obvious this girl ain't no Celine. Except for the horrendous ballads, however, that doesn't make a stitch of a difference. The pop songs have all the qualities of memorable tunes--the choruses are clear and catchy, the beats are bouncy enough to make you shake your bonbon, and the singer is about as randy for love as Austin Powers is for a shag. Edit out the low-water mark--when Britney mutilates the Rolling Stones' misogynist anthem, "Satisfaction," by oversexualizing it with inserted "uh"s ("I can't get no, uh, satisfaction")--and you've got a hit-packed album that's as guilty a pleasure as reruns of Beverly Hills 90210. --Heidi Sherman ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars Oops! I made the same album again!
    After the huge succes of her debut album ...Baby One More Time Britney already with the title sais what this album is about: It's more of the same. More teen pop. You actually could stick BOMT and OIDIA to eachother and you wouldn't even notice it were 2 different albums. Her first album had more variation of songs then this one. Most ballads are at the end of the album, because Britney is so bad at ballads. That was a smart choice. The songs are pretty short and the lyrics are all the time about love, letting down and dancing. The order of the songs is often the same an the bridge is often the melody sung with a different melody. However, the melodies are often great and the beats too. The album includes 3 phonecalls of Britney!

    The titel track is danceable and has weird lyrics. The melody is one of the best of the album. The bridge is original. It features a talking scene between Britney and some guy. Stronger has good lyrics. britney sais she is independent and is the opposite of Baby One More Time. It is a more tougher Britney. In Where Are You Now britney proves she can sing, it features a scream of Brit that lasts long. But the ballad gets boring soon.
    britney hasen't really got a voice to sing Dear Diary, a cute lovesong. It's at the end of the album and is a calm song. The album features a cover: I Can't Get No SatisFaction. The song starts slow but soon the beats join Britney. There isn't a lot different then the original version, a useless cover.

    Lucky is about a girl that is famous and rich, she has everything but still she cries. It's a very kiddish song. What You See Is What You Get looks A LOT like OIDIA and BOMT, you could make 1 song of these 3 songs! They have excactly the same beats! Can't Make You Love Me is a good faster song with the best beats of the whole album and also one of the best melodies. Girl In The Mirror, Don't let Me be The Last To Know and When Your Eyes say it are not bad ballads. The problem is they can easially get boring. That is the problem of this album, you can listen to it a couple of times and really like it. But because the songs look a lot like eachother and the songs are simple, it soon gets boring.

    Warning: The melodies stay in your head, which is the strongest point of this album.

    oops i did it again is one of the lousiest albums ever made.this awful babe mimes at concerts,does not write her songs and her awful voice is enhanced in the studio.DONT BUY THIS HORRIBLE ALBUM AND MAKE HER RICHER.MOST CERTAINLY AVOIDABLE.get SLOW MOTION FROM SUPERTRAMP instead.zero stars for this crap.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Oops!....I Did It Again
    I remember this album when I was in the 7th grade. I love this album and it is funkier like her acclaimed debut album. This album shows the progress from phenomenon to artist. A bit wiser and more confident and self-assured. This album is Britney Spears as you have never heard her:sexy,sassy,and solidly in control. This album is maturity. One listen to this album and she will make a believer out of you-one more time. This album has been certified 10x Platinum. Remember,this was 2000-2001. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Puerto Rican superstar Ricky Martin's self-titled first English-language album is a triumph of an omnivorous world-pop sensibility--but more important is that at its best, it's a real kick. The first single, "Livin' la Vida Loca," employs a revved-up ska tempo to praise a girl whose "lips are devil red [and] skin's the color of mocha." Martin is no less irresistible on the disc's other uptempo numbers, such as "Spanish Eyes," "The Cup of Life" (the 1998 World Cup theme which with he stole the Grammy telecast a few months before this CD's release), and the Soul Coughing-indebted "Shake Your Bon Bon." Ricky Martin loses momentum with its draggier ballads--even the much-touted Madonna duet, "Be Careful (Cuidade con Mi Corazon)," doesn't spark--but overall, it deserves its inevitable multiplatinum success. --Rickey Wright ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ricky deserves more credit
    Back in 1999, Puerto Rican heartthrob Ricky Martin burst onto the mainstream music scene in hopes in proving to the world that he is far more than just a young, sappy Spanish crooner with a pretty face."Livin' La Vida Loca," although somewhat corny and sugary, conveyed Latin pop perfectly, with its exuberant blend of horns, percussion, guitar riffs, and a catchy, repeatable chorus that can easily be glued inside one's ears.(Of course, Gloria Estefan originally opened the door in the 1980s).Sure, Ricky occasionally wears tight leather pants and shakes his behind like he is God's gift to the world, but the guy has an unprecedented amount of charisma and passion that his peers cannot contend with.Since the hey-days of "Loca," Martin went on to create a sophomore English-language album in 2000 ("Sound Loaded") that is even greater-material-wise-than its predecessor.In addition, he released a Spanish hits collection ("La Historia," 2002) and a subsequent album in his native language ("Almas Del Silenco," 2003) that is perhaps his best album, musically and lyrically, yet.Whenever Martin sings or is on stage, one can feel not only his presence, but also his soul.Believe it or not, Ricky can sing -- and well, too.For being a male singer, he transcends emotion extremely well (perhaps it's a Latin thing).He may not be a songwriter, but his voice and personality shine all on its own.Martin has forever stayed true to himself (his faithful Spanish followers know first hand) and has not let the media destroy him due to his questionable orientation.Every artist, at one point or another, has recorded cheesy songs with commercial appeal; it's natural.However, digging farther into his vast catalogue of material, one will find some of the best Latin/pop music ever created.His ballads are strong and sturdy; his up-tempo songs are full of passion and celebration.The sad aspect of all this is that critics or his peers have never taken Martin seriously, and that's an absolute shame.It's hard to choose a definitive Ricky Martin album since each one is rich and subtenant in their own right.Underneath the good looks and somewhat-flamboyant image is a Latino who is filled with an unyielding sense of passion and love.Anyone who appreciates individuals such as Martin cannot condemn his music, or himself, for that matter.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Still Ricky's best
    My favorite until this CD was Au Medio Vevir, but Ricky proves he's got more than just a sweet romantic voice on this collection of fast dance tracks and of course the Get Up and Shake Your Booty "Livin La Vida Loca."Ricky takes Latin music into the mainstream like Gloria Estefan and Selena did, and the results are stunning. Enjoy!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ricky Martin is an excellentartist
    With more than 60 millions of CDs Worldwide with a sucessfull carrer as one of the most international Icons in Pop Music, Ricky Martin have achieve that little by little with a lot of work, based on talent, carisma etc.


    For the ignorants that were making statements without even know what they are talking about,Ricky Martin started as a solo artist in 1990 and with albums like: ( A Medio Vivir 1995 ) Vuelve 1998,Ricky martin became one of the most international male artist wordwide, Ricky Martin 1999 was just for make his name familiar with the american people cuz the other 5 continents worlwide already know him as the super star he is.



    Ricky Martin 1999, is a great albumsongslike:Private emotion, I ma made of you,Cup of Life(official song of the world cup 1998 ), She s all i ever had, Be carefull with my heart, were some of the beautiful songs of that album that make history worldwide.


    Ricky Martin is at the present of the most stablish artist in the pop music, and with his lattest multi-platinum album ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    The Backstreet Boys' previous outing, Millennium, was atough act to follow, combining as it did the storming pop of "LargerThan Life" and the sublime balladry of "Show Me the Meaning of BeingLonely." Black & Blue is a worthy successor, if a slightly moremature sound for the boys. There's plenty of uptempo pop, such as thecatchy advice dished out on "Get Another Boyfriend" and the slinkybeat-riddled R&B of "Shining Star," nicely balanced with some smoothballads--you can almost hear the lighters sparking up as the Spanishguitar gently plucks away on "I Promise You (with Everything I Am)."However, it's when they take up immediately where Millenniumleft off that they are at their strongest: "The Answer to Our Life" and"Not for Me" form a sturdy bridge from their previous output onward tothe future. If this is the state of things to come, the future isdecidedly rosy for Brian, Kevin, Howie, A.J., and Nick. --Helen Marquis ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Despite millions of album sales, 'N Sync are an obvious No. 2 to label mates the Backstreet Boys. Fittingly, they try harder--too hard, in fact--through most of their second non-Christmas disc, No Strings Attached. The quintet and Strings' dozen-plus producers fill these 47 minutes with bland ballads by Diane Warren and Richard Marx, mildly funky workouts like a cover of Johnny Kemp's "Just Got Paid" and the muddled "Space Cowboy," and gimmicks such as "Digital Get Down" that hardly lend credence to whatever career-longevity claims they might want to lodge. This is a guaranteed smash, but judged on the merits of its weak material and less than compelling vocal performances, No Strings Attached should be long forgotten by the time the Backstreeters' next CD arrives. --Rickey Wright ...

    Editorial Review

    The splicing together of nu metal, rap, funk, and sterile electronica laced with dark melodies as infectious as anything Britney has to offer inspired 6 million people to purchase copies of Limp Bizkit's Significant Other. With Chocolate Starfish, they perfect their formula. From the electro-infused "Intro" through the contagiously chugging "My Generation" to the straight-up rap of "Getcha Groove On," Chocolate Starfish is a slick, clinical, and flawless platform for Fred Durst's effortlessly savage--and occasionally unintentionally comic--sociological rants geared toward disaffected youth. Ultimately, though, it's that undeniably intelligent musical backdrop--the brooding guitar sound that gave the Mission Impossible 2 theme haunting new life and menace, and that defines "Hot Dog," "Full Nelson," "My Way," "Rollin'," "Boiler," and "It'll Be Okay"--that makes this a seething work of genius. The fact is, with rap and rock saying pretty much the same thing, Limp Bizkit have plenty of competition. They just do what they do better than everyone else. --Dan Gennoe ... Read more

    this was the first cd I got back in 6th grade, and boy did I think it was funny.I mean, the guy sings the "f-word" about 50+ times in one song, so whats not to like, right? well, other than the fact that I "grew up" and listened to better music later on, this isn't that bad.well, unless you are older than a 6th grader.then it sucks.and boy, this album sucks.basically everything wrong with music today can be traced to this album.its that bad.its funny as heck, but this is terrible music.it is worth a novelty listen if you want to be cracked up a bit, but other then that its garbage.and Fred Durst trying to do slower emotional songs at the end is just a complete joke.avoid this cd and their others like the plague.

    1-0 out of 5 stars To All Of Those @ssholes Mocking My First Review...
    I just want you to know that I listen to whatever I want, especially to you, Wykydtron, telling me to save myself from listening from Korn, Slipknot, Shadows Fall, Lamb Of God, Slipknot and Ill Nino and listen to "real metal". I like Children Of Bodom, old Metallica and Iced Earth as well, but I honestly don't care for Iron Maiden and Judas Priest (I think they are great bands as a matter of fact, but they just don't appeal to me), and 3 Inches Of Blood just suck. This is just MY opinion, so leave me the hell alone and let me listen to whatever I want while you listen to whatever you like to listen to. Got that? Don't make me repeat myself again.

    Now, for the review. This album totally blows. Fred Durst totally f*cked music up again. This idiot can't rap and the band members suck as well. This band should have never gotten a record deal, especially with Interscope records. It's just so sad that all of the hack talent, sellout artists get all of the attention and money while the artists that make good music are looked over. Music is dying these days, and I owe it all to Fred Durst.

    Yes, "My Way" ripped off a Pink Floyd song (I don't care for Pink Floyd), and Fred then thinks he's so hardcore saying "f*ck" 50 times in the song "Hot Dog". I can take swearing, but not when Fred swears all of those times. "Take A Look Around" is an extremely generic knockoff to the Mission Impossible theme song, and "My Generation" is just ruined with horrendous lyrics. "Rollin'" is a terrible song as well...do I have to keep typing?

    Buy ANYTHING except for this record. And why can't Amazon rate it lower than one star? This deserves negative infinitive stars, because the record companies are doing anything to get money these days, and hopefully this P.O.S. will go out of print and end up in used record stores where it belongs.

    Thank you for scarring the true meaning of music, Fred Durst. BURN IN MOTHERFURead more

    Editorial Review

    Months before this major-label debut appeared, Enrique Iglesias scored a radio hit with the upbeat "Bailamos," thanks to its inclusion on the soundtrack of Wild Wild West. Enrique's bid to firmly place the son of Julio in the mainstream pop firmament leads off with another midtempo dance-pop airwaves candidate, "Rhythm Divine." The track is typical of the rest that follow: highly wrought emotion recalled in a bed of glossy production that uses Latin syncopation as a reminder of the singer's roots while resolutely aiming for chart supremacy next to the likes of Celine Dion. Filled with pop romanticism--a duet with Whitney Houston, a cover of Bruce Springsteen's "Sad Eyes," and proclamations on the order of "I've seen the sun make love to the sea"--Enrique is easy enough on the ears, and looks like a surefire hit. --Rickey Wright ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars A guilty pleasure
    I am by no means a fan of pop music, let alone that short lived Latin movement that was kickstarted by that former Menudo hack Ricky Martin. The only Latin artist I did like out of that brief music trend was Enrique Iglesias. His first english album "Enrique" is a major guilty pleasure of mine. The music is irresistably infectious. I especially love the song "Be With You" which compelled me to purchase the cd not too long after the song was unleashed on to the public. It is a good mix of europop and latin music. I also love the equally catchy "Rhythm Divine". It is has a good dance beat. What I didn't care for was Enrique's butchering of the Bruce Springsteen song "Sad Eyes" and his duet with Whitney Houston on "Could I Have This Kiss Forever?". Turning "Sad Eyes" into some sappy, Latin/pop ballad was not a great idea. I simply did not like "Could I Have This Kiss Forever?". My favorite ballads however I Have Always Loved You", and "I'm Your Man". Those ballads did remind me of Enrique's famous father Julio Iglesias. They had that same romantic yearnings in the lyrics and melodies. In my personal opinion, I thought it was unncessary to include three spanish versions of three of the songs. I thought it would have been better to just have the spanish version of "Rhythm Divine" and skipped out on the spanish versions of "Sad Eyes" and "I'm Your Man". Total filler. "Enrique" is not perfect but it certainly isn't awful by all means. Whenever I am in the mood for cheesy pop music, I will throw in this cd into my stereo.

    5-0 out of 5 stars ENRIQUE'S FOURTH / MUSIC IN ENGLISH WITH LATINO FLAVOR !!!
    Enrique's crossover cd to the English language is extremely good full of catchy music that would really make u feel it. His best song out of this cd is the internationally known #2 Be With You, of course, with a great latin touch. In fact although most of this cd is in English, Enrique puts his personal touch to those songs with the Spanish guitars in the beats and Spanish words between the lyrics. Let's not forget the collaboration he did with Whitney Houston in which they blend their voices smoothly as if romancing each other. Overall, i'd say it's the best debut crossover from any latin artist since it was a true success. (unlike thalia, paulina rubio, etc.) This cd is really worth buying not just for the artist, but for it being a great production of Spanish/American music.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a great cd
    This CD is really great I listen to it all the time and would definatley recommend it. The lyrics to the songs are beautifully written and are really passionate. My particular fave is the "Could I have this kiss forever" sang with Whitney Huston. It is a powerful song which is really touching. I also like "Rhythm Divne" and "Be with you" which are really catchy and very passionate. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars The Decline of Western Civilization....
    No, not the movie, but what this horrible music is causing. Because of this caustic crap, western civilization is declining as we know it. This in an anthem for all the "alienated", white, blue class, midwest, teenagers who will eat this trash up. Now I'm not saying I don't respect the people in this band. They manage to find a nice in the music market, and milk as much money as possible out of brainwashed kids for their own benefeit. They might claim that they're "true" or whatever, but they're really just a bunch of people who took every element of tacky, stupidity, and horrible lyrics, and mashed it together.

    There is one type of ICP fan, it's the one who claims to be a "JUGGALO 4 LYFE!", but then discovers something that resembles music, and can't believe that he's been listening to this garbage so long. With luck, you'll get out of your ICP phase swift and quick so you have a chance to enjoy REAL MUSIC.

    5-0 out of 5 stars a mother's story
    My son, Christopher Colt Kelley, was murdered on December 21, 2001. He was 15 years old and he was a real Juggalo. He used to try and get me to play ICP cd's all the time whenever we were riding in the car together and I wouldn't listen to them. When he was murdered I took the time to sit and listen to what he was in to. I haven't stopped listening to ICP yet. I met Violent J once before Shangri-La came out and I told him all about my son. He held my hand and told me in these words that I will never forget, "You should not be sad that he is gone, you should always look at it like this, whenever it rains, that's him Raining Diamonds down on you." Then Shangri-La dropped and I heard It Rains Diamonds...and I could not stop crying. Now I am a 37 year old Juggalette and I'll be that way 'til I'm dead in the ground. My son was buried with an ICP shirt on and a Hatchetman round his neck. And I plan on going the same way. Everyone has their own thoughts about ICP and the Dark Carnival...but if you're not a true Juggalo....you'll never get it. MCL and R.I.P. Colt....we miss you.

    Editorial Review

    Will the real Slim Shady please stand up? On Eminem's sophomore album, he can't decide who he wants to be: the deranged pseudo-psycho of the Slim Shady LP, or a nice guy who just likes to rhyme about slicing and dicing his girlfriend ("Kim"). Of course, according to Eminem, he's just kidding. He refuses to take responsibility for the misogynistic, homophobic bile he spews, whining that he's the victim of people who don't get his unique sense of humor. It's good old America's fault if the kids aren't alright (Eminem blames bad parenting), and he's just capitalizing on Uncle Sam's dark side. On the Marshall Mathers LP, he's ambivalent about his fame, angry at his life, pissed off that people take him seriously, and fightin' mad at boy bands--and a lot of other white people. But the blue-eyed brat is acutely aware of his status as rap's resident alien: he has the most offensive mouth running, but never uses the "N" word. He gives lyrical love to tragic (black) legends like Tupac and Biggie while dissing white rappers hard. Even sitting duck Puffy gets the kid-gloves treatment. Of course, Eminem is an interesting, witty rapper, and there's some nice production on this CD, courtesy of Dr. Dre and others. But the hatred in Eminem's rhymes makes the album rotten at its core. And his protests that Slim Shady is just a persona become less convincing with each arrest. Then again, Eminem's got it hard: he's rich, famous, white, and male. --Lizz Mendez Berry ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars A very Controversial CD
    This cd is of course very controversial.If your a huge EMinem fan then this is the cd TO HAVE.If you hate Eminem(which i cant understand y)and his harsh lyrics which is only him being brutally honest on what he feels then DONT BUY THIS CD.
    This cd contains songs in which EMinem trashes many ppl but of course that is him, and in a way these songs are enjoyable and we become infactuated with it. But on this cd are so many other songs tat show such a greater side of who Eminem is. This cd closes with a song in which Eminem says
    A lot of people ask me.. stupid f***** questions
    A lot of people think that.. what I say on records
    or what I talk about on a record, that I actually do in real life
    or that I believe in it
    Or if I say that, I wanna kill somebody, that..
    I'm actually gonna do it
    or that I believe in it
    Well, s***.. if you believe that
    then I'll kill you
    You know why?
    Cuz I'm a

    CRIMINAL
    ----------------This song to me was definately a great song to close with. It just shows tat Eminem is just making a living trying to just make ends meat.Just because he says something doesnt mean thats what he does or wat he's going to do.Music is just a matter of free speech.THIS IS DEFINATELY THE CD FOR EMINEM FANS.

    4-0 out of 5 stars SHOCK VALUE--AT WHAT COST?
    THE MARSHALL MATHERS LP is Eminem's best album, which, in a weird way, is quite hard to defend.On one hand, it contains brilliant songs, some of which rank among hip-hop's most creative and introspective; Em's trademark complex and captivating rhyming scheme and delivery; and rock-solid production, some of which comes from Dr. Dre himself.There's "Who Knew," in which he points to the hypocrisy of parents and lambasts them for solely blaming their parenting failures on "bad" influences like him.There's "The Way I Am," in which he craves for a sense of normalcy even with his fame and wealth as a rap superstar.And of course there's the seven-minute masterpiece "Stan," the chilling story of an obsessed fan.Backed by the marvelous production of Mark the 45 King (who, after plugging in production work for Queen Latifah in the late 80s, seemed to have disappeared forever), he changes the pitch and tone of his voice with each verse to match the crazed fan's mood swings, as well as return to his normal voice when he finally writes to Stan at the last verse.Other songs worthy of note are the sparse beat-driven "Kill You," and "Bitch Please II," in which he clearly outshines Dre, Snoop AND Xzibit.

    On the other hand, there is a pervasive feel of insecurity and lack of confidence in his pure technical skill, relying more on shock value and third-grade humor.At least at this point, it was not as unbearable as it would become with his disastrous fourth album ENCORE, but this could have easily become a classic.Creatively, he could have done without the first single "The Real Slim Shady"; obviously the song was made to sell records, but with its cartoonish beat (one of the few-ever Dre disappointments) and pointless subject matter, it was included at an artistic cost.D12 show up to mar an otherwise okay song ("Under the Influence").Once again Eminem yaps on and on about how much he hates his wife--and kills her a second time ("Kim").And easy targets for ridicule--Britney Spears, N'Sync, Backstreet Boys, and even Will Smith (who undeservedly does not get enough credit for helping rap break through the mainstream)--show up throughout the 18 tracks. And then there is the "homophobic" controversy; true, Eminem is not the first MC to yell anti-gay slurs on record, but not in recent memory have there been so many of them hurled in one sitting.It also does not help that he answers to any would-be charges, "Homophobic? Naw, you're just heterophobic!" in "Criminal," making it easier to conclude that he was indeed using the slurs for gays, and not wimps.

    Such is the paradox of THE MARSHALL MATHERS LP.Granted, it is a very good album, better than most of the rap albums that were coming out circa 2000, or even in the last ten years.But you'll never see a lot of hip-hop fans herald it as a classic, in the same breath as Nas' ILLMATIC, Biggie's READY TO DIE, Jay-Z's REASONABLE DOUBT or Public Enemy's IT TAKES A NATION OF MILLIONS TO HOLD US BACK.Perhaps it is because he relied--or had more faith--in gimmickry than raw skill.Beneath all the silliness shines lyrics that stand up with the best lines ever uttered from the rap greats.Yes, in a sense, it's frustrating...and sad, because it is possible to realize that Eminem is yet to make that classic album he is most certainly capable of.

    Editorial Review

    On his first solo album, former New Kid Jordan Knight turns in a surprisingly stylish record that, though hardly unflawed, makes a convincing case for him as a grownup pop singer in the tradition of George Michael. (Or perhaps that of Robert Palmer, to whom Knight bears a remarkable vocal resemblance. Of course, Palmer hasn't been this with-it since the new-wave days of Clues.) The R&B stylings of the disc's first few numbers make for its most convincing music; "A Different Party" could actually draw a crowd to the dance floor. Less successful, if well-enough sung, are the ballads that fill most of the second half's space. It's a relief when a lively but pedestrian 95 South remix of the first cut, "Give It to You," appears at the end. Still, Jordan Knight should earn its namesake some of the cred he obviously wishes for. --Rickey Wright ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Why isn't Jordan K taking over our charts? This blew me away
    When I was between the age of 6-9 I loved this band, I don't know if you guys know them, they were called the New Kids On the Block, their lead singer Jordan Knight became my first ever crush. When they split up in 94 I was abroad and so didn't realise this and subsequently forgot about the New Kids and the handsome dark-haired falsetto with the dimples.

    In 1999 I was pleasantly reminded when Jordan K released 'Give it to you' which I loved but for some strange reason I didn't buy the single and didn't follow Jordan's progress and cos I didn't see him since (I live in the UK) I didn't know of this album and again forgot about JK.

    Then last year me and my older sister were reminiscing and New Kids came up and from then on I fell in love with the New Kids all over again, buying up their old merchandise off ebay. You're probably thinking, how sad?

    Wrong! You know why? Because it eventually led me to buy this excellent album which I recieved a few days ago. Don't get me wrong, I'm not one to like a piece of music just cos of who sings it, in fact I bought Jordan's remix album that he released in 2004 of the old new kids songs which although brought back a lot of good memories, weren't that impressive.

    Anyway going back to this album, there is not one bad song on it. 'Give it to you' shows a daring, sexy side to Jordan than his 'I'll be loving you forever days', which really works. 'A Different Party' is a great dance track with Jordan's voice sounding like a cross between Jamie Cullum and George Michael, trust me it works! 'I could never take the place of your man' is a ballad version of Prince's 1987 'rock' hit. Let's just say Jordan wins, it sounds much better as a ballad.

    Speaking of ballad 'Close my eyes' and 'Change my ways' are great love songs which show off Jordan's gorgeous voice. What I love about the love songs on this album is that they're hopeful/optimistic love songs rather than the more common depressing ones.

    The best ballad by far and probably the best song on the album is 'When you're lonely'. It's so beautiful it left me breathless, it features (in parts) Jordan's famous falsetto against a backdrop of sweeping violins, indian sitars with some bass too. This album is worth it for this tune alone! 'Broken by you' is also such a hautingly beautiful song.


    Look just buy the album. This is no doubt one of the best or the best album of 1999 (although I'm reviewing it in 2005. It's a travesty that this album wasn't a hit in the year that Britney Spears was hitting us too many times with her bland material. Jordan is one of the most underated talented acts of our time and I wish him the best of luck in the future.


    Come on Jordan, 'give it to us!'. We need you

    4-0 out of 5 stars worth your money
    This is a good album, plain and simple. Im a guy so Im not saying this because I think Jordan is hot or whatever. As far as pop music goes this is as about as good as it gets. Check it out.

    5-0 out of 5 stars you've changed the world!!
    Hey jordan!! This album was one of the best album's of all time!!Can you cool it down a bit. Singers can't sing like you we wouldn't want to make anyone quit the business!! A+(...).!!! Love always, Without you i won't be "lonely"!! christy. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not Entirely Good, But Not Entirely Bad Either.
    Hard To Swallow marked the return of probably the most parodied, hounded, and maybe even hated musician in America.This release finds Vanilla Ice angrier than ever, so it's fitting that the album falls into the rap/metal genre.Downtuned guitars, screamy vocals, and angry lyrics are the meal of the day in this album, and the results aren't quite as bad as most might think judging only from the artist's name listed on the CD's cover.

    Get ready, because over the course of the album's 11 actual songs (2 pointless interludes) you're going to experience a lot of Mr. Ice's rage, which is mostly aimed at his naysayers.A theme which will probably be on your last nerve by the time the disc stops spinning.Though his lyrics are a bit trite at times, I think he proves he's still quite a competent vocalist/rapper as some of his rhymes are quite clever.Not every rhyme is gold, in fact there are quite a few stinker lines looming, but overall he puts up a pretty good performance.

    Musically the album is really typical rap/metal fodder.The guitars are tuned low and make a lot of senseless noise during verses with the bass line thumping in the back, and the drums aren't much to write home about.They're just there to maintain the tempo.

    I enjoyed the mixing on the album.It's nice to hear something angry that actually sounds angry and ugly.This album doesn't have a lot of polish production-wise and it works into Ice's favor by really helping express the anger he's wanting to convey.

    The main problem with this CD is that almost all the songs tend to outstay their welcome.Too many times I found myself enjoying a song, but as songs crept closer and closer to the 5 minute mark (when the song was really finished at 3:30-4:00) started to grate on me.Songs like Scars, ADD, and F*ck Me are prime examples of this and find Ice usually screaming at the end about how bad life has treated him, etc.Or long musical outros that just aren't all that good.I can understand wanting to get that aggression out, but doing it in the lyrics might make it seem a bit less whiney.

    In the end, this CD did win me over.It's just a good CD to pop in and chill out with.It's not without faults, but it's not without merit either.If rap/metal is your thing (and it's not mine, imagine that) I'd say give it a fair chance before knocking it just because of the artist.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Vanilla Ice first rock/rap album
    This CD is awesome! A must buy. Thou Bi-Polar is way better in the rock dept. Still a great CD TOO COLD!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Hard To Swallow? Maybe If You're An Old Fan
    Just as Aggro-rock was peaking and Nu-metal was beginning, Vanilla Ice decided to jump on the Skater band-wagon and release Hard To Swallow. If you were weened on Korn's first three albums and Limp Bizkit, you'd probably love this. Requesting backup from an "all-star" crew (Jimmy Pop Ali of The Bloodhound Gang, Producer Ross Robinson, Casey Chaos and that year's incarnation of neo-punks Amen, Beck's DJ Swamp, Scott "Brother of Wes" Borland, and a handful of underground rappers) Ice proved he could hold his own with the late 90's metal and alternative crowd even though he was still ignored.
    The album opens with "Living", an amped-up version of "The Wrath" from his gangsta rap album "Mindblowin", it's apparent that Mr. Ross Robinson's skill on channeling emotions is hard at work. The album progresses a couple of tracks to the angry "F#!k Me", a proverbial slap in the face about media attention with venomous guest vocals by Amen's Casey Chaos. Two tracks later and you're hit with the album's only single "Too Cold", the infamous metal cover of "Ice, Ice, Baby", complete with Korn-like percussion riffs and an angry Ice spitting lyrics to a song that can now truely can be called his own. No theft of semi-homo opera rockers here. "Prozac" lifts lyrics from his guest spot on Bloodhound Gang's "Boom" and "S.N.A.F.U." actually features Bloodhound Frontman Jimmy Pop Ali returning the favor on a few verses. A few more tracks of sex, drugs,&rap-rock & roll and the album closes with a solid rap track. "Freestyle" features a slew of underground rappers flowin to the beat with raps of bein the toughest and having Ice's back. Ice closes out the song with a barrage towards all the haters who never thought he'd make it out of joke status.
    All in all, this album's a well rounded attempt at a come back but musically it's not too original. This is one of those album's where if you liked the alt-metal sounds of the late 90's this should be in your Top Ten. ... Read more
