Album Review

Nominally a rap group, in truth Black Eyed Peas call on so many forms of songwriting and production that slotting them into hip-hop is like slotting Prince into R&B — technically true, but very limiting. Elephunk, the group's third straight winning LP, doesn't have top-notch rapping, but as driven by frontman Will.I.Am, it does possess some of the most boundary-pushing productions in contemporary, (mostly) uncommercial hip-hop — right up at the level occupied by Common and OutKast. The smart, brassy opening club thump "Hands Up" hits another level with a sly bridge flaunting some heavy metallic slide guitar, while the highly pressurized love jam "Shut Up" features great interplay between Taboo and new member Fergie. Space doesn't allow for description of each track, but suffice to say any Will.I.Am track is going to feature loads of ideas and fresh sounds, not to mention plenty of stylistic change-ups — from the digital-step ragga of "Hey Mama" (featuring Tippa Irie) to the Latinized, loved-up "Latin Girls." Like a latter-day Digital Underground, Black Eyed Peas know how to get a party track moving, and add a crazy stupid rhyme or two ("bop your head like epilepsy" from the suitably titled "Let's Get Retarded"). [The British version included two bonus tracks.]

Best Album From The Peas So Far

This was the album that got the peas to number 1 in the UK. With Fergie being a newbie to the group, she has overwhelmed everyone with her amazing vocals. With tunes such as "Hey Mama" and "Let's Get Retarded", this album is for any party starter. Collaborators on the album include: Justin Timberlake, Papa Roach, and Tippa Irie, this album shows how creative these peas are. And with such a creative album title, this is one album you don't want to miss out on! Make sure you buy this album as soon as you can! Fabian Castellani, 13, fabiancastellani@hotmail.co.uk

Black Eyed Pea's Elephunk Review

A classic and amazing album. It would be ignorant to categorise this powerful group of musicans, respectfully to a single genre of music. The group's elegant mix of funk, hip-hop, dance, pop, disco and rap create an atmoshere of pure brilliance. Truly an awesome album.

The Black Eyed Peas transcended hip-hop to become one of the most commercially successful pop groups of the 2000s.
