Album Review

Slightly Stoopid continues its journey away from punk rock on its fifth album, Chronchitis. In fact, by now it's hard to remember when this band ever played like punks. Kyle McDonald and Miles Doughty, the original duo, have by now been joined by four other musicians, and while they may still hail from San Diego, their sound is pure Caribbean. Reggae, rocksteady, and especially dub dominate on these groove-heavy tracks. There are other influences — you can almost sing Traffic's "Feelin' Alright?" to "Hold On to the One" and, despite its title, "Jimi" is reminiscent of Hugh Masekela's "Grazing in the Grass" — but the Jamaican rhythms are constant, and they are accentuated by the singers' faux-Jamaican accents. The effect is never less than entertaining and almost always infectious, and the guests, particularly touring buddy G. Love, who waxes erotic on "Baby I Like It," provide welcome additions to the sound. Chronchitis is one of those records that sounds like it was formed with live work in mind, and it should keep Slightly Stoopid's summer audiences happy and dancing.

Cronchitis: An Addiction

The first thought that crossed my mind this morning was, "I've got to get Chronchitis!" This album is a step forward in maturity for the band. You can expect more of the great guest vocalists like on albums past(ex: G. Love), and also more of the dance beats SS has been serving up since the Longest Barrel Ride, but you can also expect more smooth, acoustic guitar than usual. This is definitely a somewhat bluesy album, great for a party or just to relax to. If you appreciated such tracks as Sweet Honey, Somebody, or Ain't Got A Lotta Money, you'll love this album. If you liked tracks more like Officer, This Joint, Jedi, or Up On A Plane, you'll definitely dig 2 AM or Blood of My Blood. This album is excellent. Get it.

Not exactly what i expected...

Well my sister brought home the album and i was psyched. our house is of diehard stoopid fans. We pop in hte CD, listen to it once over, and well...we werent exactly amazed. sure, 2 am, Jimi, Nobody knows, and mind on your music are all pretty tight...but we feel that there were a lot of "filler" songs like Girl U So Fine and i guess you could say Baby I Like it. i was just a little disappointed i guess. My sister called up the band manager for SS and we told him what we thought, but he said that Chronchitis completely blows Closer to the Sun out of the water and that it was definitely the hottest thing out. I, for one, happen to disagree. i lived off of closer to the sun in my CD player for GOD KNOWS how long, but i can say right now, i dont think i could live off of Chronchitis. Its a good album, but not very solid. I think it pulled a (Pepper's) 'No Shame' where it had 3 or 4 good songs on it and the rest is pretty generic filler. Im sure the more i listen to this, the more i'll like it. We'll see.

Get infected with Chronchitis

A must buy for any hardcore Stoopidhead, but not their best work. It doesn't hold a candle to "Closer to the Sun", so don't expect to be blown away. "Chronchitis" is alot more sax and trumpet heavy than previous releases with the addition of C Money and the DeLas to the Stoopid crew. Also, it seems that SS has completely phased punk rock out of its repetoire and focused solely on mellow reggae and hip-hop. This album is not without gems though. 2am, Ever Really Wanted, and Ocean are 3 of the best on this cd in my opinion. All in all, "Chronchitis" (as the name suggests) is definately the album to throw in while you kick it with your friends and a fat sack.
