iTunes Review

After establishing itself with a brilliant debut, Cypress Hill broke through to the masses with its sophomore album. Black Sunday retains all the distinctive qualities of its predecessor, but this time the atmosphere is mellower, and the hooks are catchier. The tone is set by “I Wanna Get High,” in which DJ Muggs blends samples from three different songs and creates a sound that evokes billows of smoke. The stoned atmosphere continues with “Legalize It” and “Hits from the Bong” (which makes great use of Dusty Springfield’s “Son Of A Preacher Man”), but Black Sunday still has plenty of Los Angeles menace. “C**k the Hammer,” “I Ain’t Goin’ Out Like That” and “Lick a Shot” are psychotic party anthems, while the sauntering, simmering grooves of “Lil’ P**os” and “What Go Around Come Around, Kid” strike a low-key pose of gangsta cool. Even when the craziness reaches a fever pitch, the songs are always grounded in Muggs’ rock-solid rhythms. The group’s chemistry peaks on “When the Sh-- Goes Down” and “Insane In the Brain,” two hit anthems that exemplify the trio’s devastating potency.

stoned is the way of the walk

Cypress Hill's finest work!!!

Black Sunday is by far the bands cd. "Insane In the Brain" is really the highlight of the album, but there are still plenty of great songs like "I Ain't Goin' Out Like That", "Hits from the Bong", and "Break 'Em Off Some", and the rest great too, so there isn't a lot of half/baked filter songs in the album. Overall, this album lives up to its hype and should please most hip/hop fans.

Cypress Hill were notable for being the first Latino hip-hop superstars, but they became notorious for their endorsement of marijuana, which actually isn't a trivial thing. Not only did the group campaign for its legalization, but their slow, rolling bass-and-drum loops pioneered a new, stoned funk that became extraordinary influential in '90s hip-hop -- it could be heard in everything from Dr. Dre's G-funk to the chilly layers of English trip-hop. DJ Muggs crafted the sound, and B Real, with his...
