Oh My God.

What happened to the old BEP? Their older music was so much better! Im not a fan of this techno stuff! D=

The Time of Your Life

The Black Eyed Peas outdid themselves on The Beginning. The have reached and surpassed my incredibly high expectations for this album. Good job! The Beginning is only composed of unique songs with killing beats, fun lyrics and ultra-catchy melodies. It seems impossible not to like it.
To all the haterz and those who say they prefer their old style: if you don't like it, just stop listening to their music. "Tomorrow does not equal yesterday", just to quote the last words on the album. And the Peas are the future.
The BEPs are here to stay! And, this time, they went all the way with their new style. Where The E.N.D. was a mix between old hip-hop sounds and new stuff, The Beginning pushes past the limits of music exploration. They know what they are doing and they can't do anything else than hits! So, if you don't like it, it's only sad for you.
To all the Peabuddies: enjoy! This album will give you the time of your life!

No soul

The first track of the album "Bridging the Gap" is a song called BEP empire. On that song Apl.de.ap has a beautiful line: "Everyone talking about high profilin' but it ain't hip-hop to me". I agree, and that is why this album is not hip-hop. This album is just more generic pop music with no soul. I truly believe that the black eyed peas are extremely talented artists but unfortunately, people no longer value real music in today's society and everyone just wants to hear music with mindless lyrics and a catchy beat that they can bob their head to. Unless we want real music to die we must demand more from these artists instead of buying into whatever is popluar at the time. Diversity and origonality is what real music is made of, and there is nothing origonal about this album.

Biography

The Black Eyed Peas transcended hip-hop to become one of the most commercially successful pop groups of the 2000s. Their career began modestly, with a pair of albums inspired by the positive-minded likes of A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul. After adding Fergie, the group's pop instincts reached full flight. Ignited by the Top Ten hit "Where Is the Love?" and the Grammy-winning party anthem "Let's Get It Started," the group scored three multi-platinum albums in 2003's Elephunk, 2005's Monkey Business,...
