Rap Heaven!

"Breakdown" with dorm pinup boy Jack Johnson, while perfectly harmless and radio sanitary, is impeccable, breezy pop music that approaches the stratospheric heights of "Sunshine," Jack's everyman croon subtly caressing sultry percussion and slinky keys. Chan Marshall, an artist who can do absolutely no wrong to begin with, injects her signature jet-black soul into the sparse, minimal bassline of "I've Been Thinking," her sneering refrain of "Be my boy" sure to strike a chord among her devoted fanbase. The similarly subdued "Class System," an ultra-sexy noir lounge-pop number featuring Julee Cruise and flavour-of-the-month Pharrell Williams, boasts an absolutely stunning piano riff as the backdrop for Julee's shrill, conviction-soaked cries. While I could do with a lot less Pharrell (does this dude sing the same 10 notes on every damn song or what?) , this track is an absolute winner, its maudlin charm shining beneath the sombre, grippingly dark heart of the composition. Thankfully, the album's true saving grace is a rap number - atop a droning, bass clef piano line and percolating, almost garage drum pattern, Dres once again proves why he is one of the most underrated emcees of our time. The progressive track is PERFECT fodder for Dres' forward-looking, left-of-center approach. Yet herein lies another critical flaw in the armor of "White People" - the endeavour to achieve a more sleek, stylish sound will invariably lead many to miss the verbal pyrotechnics of Zion I, J-Live and Encore, whose offerings on the debut platter affirmed Dan and Paul's hyper-futuristic vision in ways that these sanitised pop dittys cannot.

This Album will get more than it's fair share of spins and for most will be on your 'Desert Island Disc List!' There are lots of flavours so if you like your Hip Hop and some vocal grooves this one will always be a crowd pleaser (just hope that Desert Island is not too crowded!) Whom ever borrowed my copy on cd never gave it back! So there you go, it must be good!

Amazing

Both HBMS albums are must haves.. they never date,

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Handsome Boy Modeling School was a teaming of quirky super-producers Prince Paul (best-known for his work with De la Soul and Stetsasonic) and Dan "The Automator" Nakamura (fresh off his underground success with Kool Keith's Dr. Octagon album). Taking their name from an episode of the cult Chris Elliott sitcom Get a Life (which was sampled several times on their album), Paul and Dan adopted the über-stylish alter egos of Chest Rockwell and Nathaniel Merriweather, respectively. Their debut album,...
