Album Review

From the top down, Montezuma's Revenge has the feel of a comeback: bicoastal golden era vets unite for a stab at post-Kanye relevance, name record after indigestion, etc. The catch, of course, is that neither Souls of Mischief nor Prince Paul went much of anywhere. They've been steadily releasing records throughout the aughts. All of which leads one to view Montezuma's Revenge as a cash grab between faded icons, which it may well be, but if so it's one of the best variety in that it fundamentally works without being workmanlike. These guys still have all their charms intact: wry, winning mike tosses from the four MCs over Paul's typically effective production, intercut by stoopid skits that counterintuitively maintain momentum. The aqueous "Tour Stories" is probably the collaboration's high point, all shimmering vibes, steady boom-bap, and the type of easygoing story-raps that went out of style a long time ago. More Del and Tame One than GZA and DJ Muggs, Montezuma's Revenge is the opposite of a comeback — a stay-put, maybe, right back in the halcyon '90s.

when they said infinity in 93 they meant it

there seems to be a renaissance in 90s style music where people are revolting against the mainstream, schooling people about what we all grew up on. with no hesitation i can say this album is going to be a straight classic, minimum filler, maximum neck snapping. props to som

Old skool

I listened to a few of the songs and I was definitely feelin' it. A great album filled with a lot of old skool beats. I grew up on Tribe Called Quest, The Pharcyde etc so this is def bringin' it all back. If you love old skool beats you'll love this album. Tour Stories and Poets pretty good.

Welcome back

Always wary when a group have been away for a while but Souls of Mischief have nailed it with this album. funny, good rhymes, on point - it's what hip hop's all about. Great album

East Oakland's Souls of Mischief are members of the loose underground hip-hop consortium known as Hieroglyphics. The group consists of four erudite but hardcore MCs -- A-Plus, Phesto, Opio, and Tajai -- whose mindset combines chaos, danger, and the avant-garde, all from an intellectual B-Boy perspective. Their 1993 debut album, 93 'Til Infinity, produced an early-'90s anthem of the same name and spawned a movement toward bohemian yet rugged hip-hop. The crew drew comparisons to De La Soul and A Tribe...
