Album Review

Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. has often favored live instrumentation over loops and samples. Angry Samoans is entirely reliant on drums and guitars, yet it's equally grounded in metal (whereas their earlier albums were more in line with the kind of loose funk occasionally heard on other West Coast albums by Above the Law, N.W.A, and Kid Frost). While a natural reaction to hearing the likes of "Skared for Lyfe," "Kill for the Family," and "Boogie Man" would be comparisons to Rage Against the Machine, BYT was doing the same exact thing as early as 1990 — as heard on New Funky Nation's "Pickin' Up Metal."

In the ears of most fans of the group, it's all that's truly necessary.
