iTunes Review

Dirty Heads’ hip-hop-reggae fusion takes on a playlist-friendly, pop-oriented feel. The Huntington Beach outfit’s self-titled fifth LP has been sequenced by mood, with its first half meant for daytime listening and its second for vibing post-sunset. Check the sun-drenched nostalgia of “That’s All I Need,” and compare it to the woozy “Realize It.”

Another disappointment

After streaming the new album in its entirety today on Pandora these are my thoughts.

I have followed and supported DH from the very beginning and the unique sound that Dirty and Duddy brought from their first albums is not present in their newer albums. I get it, bands evolve with time and change with growth in their music and their lives. But for me the whole reason I was drawn to DH was because of their unique sound and the way they mixed thier hip hop and reggae sound. Their lyrics were on point and told a story they kept you wanting more. These last two albums have been none of that with exception to a few tracks. I have bought every album DH has released, have bought their vynl, merch and seen them live several times. To me this album as well as Sounds of Change, are way to pop and mainstream sounding and over produced with electronics and auto tune. Something that was unique and raw, they have transformed into ordinary and just ok. I respect them as artist and as a band, but this sound is not for the DH fans that fell in love with their original sound. Unfortunately, I think this album will be the first of all their releases that I will not buy. Disappointed really as I have been anticipating this new release for some time. Just my opinion, but I think a lot of DH day oners will agree.

They are very talent musicians and also good dudes. I have met them and they are very humble and great hearted. It's not bad music, it's just not a style that's for me. I just hate to see such talent get lost in today's mainstream pop culture with the over producing and auto tuning.

I just remember the feeling I got when I first heard these guys. It was such a clash of genres that blended seamlessly into a great and different sound. Honestly I feel like it brought a few genres together and exposed great musicianship to fans that would have never been interested otherwise. With their new music, I just don't get that same vibe.

Miss the old roots of DH

I know, I know... I'm writing this review before the album drops but every time DH comes out with a new album I get my hopes up to relive that first time I played Any Port in a Storm but they let me down. I used to be one of thier biggest fans. Seen them everytime they showed up in Philly. They used to do internet contests where you get points for adding friends and junk like that...I won both times and they sent me tickets for two different shows along with signed gear, over 10 t-shirts, and a limited edition copy of thier very first mix "The Dirty Demos." I was in love with this band and even got to talking with Dave and Matt one night at an early show at the TLA in Philly. They had a fusion of my two favorite genres, hip hop and reggae and Any Port in a Storm was the only album I had on repeat in my car that summer it came out.

But what happened?!?! All of their albums after it just couldn't match up. Their sound changed and it turned pop and too mainstream. I get that they are experimenting with new sounds and different instruments but like the old saying goes... "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." I listened to the new song "That's All I Need" and it's nothing special. Hopefully it's not a foreshadowing of the whole album. Hopefully they decided to head back to their original roots, especailly with a self-titled album. Hopefully I, or any fan of their old stuff, won't be let down with another pop-ish anyoing mainstream album.

Until they prove me wrong, my 2-star rating stands as is.

let down

i cant tell if im more disapointed in the dirty heads or all the fans that are supporting these last two albums

Following in the footsteps of their California brothers Sublime, Huntington Beach's Dirty Heads mix hip-hop, reggae, and rock along with that laid-back South Cali attitude.
