Skull and Bones
our score: 2.0 out of 5.0
Wretched Wast of Time
acclaimed rap and hip hop outfit Cypress Hill released a new album
this past week that will be hotly anticipated by would-be gangsters
and cool doods the world over.
disgraceful language than a Tarantino movie script, Skull and
Bones takes swipes at all walks of life and has a chip on
its shoulder the size of Mount Everest. Parents should certainly
take note of the warnings on the front of the cover before buying
this for angst-ridden teenagers, because the air will be bluer
than the deepest ocean once this album begins its journey.
album sold over one million copies and the new single, "Superstar,"
has already enjoyed widespread success.
But what kind
of message is it sending out when it suggests that the drug business
is better than the music industry because "in the drug game if
somebody jerked you, you could shoot them and kill them."? Maybe
I'm getting a little like Mary Whitehouse in my ageing late 20s
as my friends start to have children, but this isn't what music
should be about. In fact, it's pretty much a disgrace. Even the
more liberal music lover would be hard stretched to find anything
on Skull and Bones to impress, that is if they can distinguish
decent words through the collage of swearing hip hop.
The only cool
moments come in instrumentals between tracks. Far from being an
outstanding return from Cypress Hill, you feel they should get
back to school, find a vocabulary and try to write something inspirational.
