Album Review

Too smart for the cliquish hip-hop world yet too inventive for the rock crowd, 2 Skinnee J's might have to content itself as a group that is simply too good for mass appeal. Well, that's the mainstream's loss, as Volumizer is a strikingly good amalgamation of both techniques, with impressive pop sensibilities and atypical stylistic juxtapositions. In spite of the dire prediction above, the fact is that almost all of this, the band's sophomore major-label platter, is quite accessible; the hip-hop comes from the Michael Franti school of hard-hitting knocks, but the addition of musicians is what helps the more rap-oriented cuts stand out. There are also tracks that owe almost nothing to hip-hop, such as "Grown Up," which sounds like Lenny Kravitz jamming with the Kinks, "Lost and Found," which resonates like Sugar Ray's more alternative-sounding fare, and "Sugar and Candy," which melds a primal Beastie beat with Beck embracing blackness (and not for the hip factor, but because he bleeds it). Put Volumizer on par with the early Funkadelic records in that its innovation is greater than the sum of its rock and R&B parts. ~ Brian O'Neill, Rovi

Customer Reviews

underrated.

This is easily one of the most underrated and most beloved bands you have never heard of. This album has some super serious and super fun tracks on it, but none of it is filler. As bluntly as I can put it, this album deserves to be bought.

Rap/rock done right

Awesome album by an unknown band! This is rap/rock done right along with song great choruses and killer tracks. I especially love the last song "Coming Home", a great chilled out jam to end the album. I reccomend this one!

In a word, epic!

IMO, their best work. If you don't own this album, buy it today!!

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Influenced by rap, rock, and new wave, 2 Skinnee J's are an energetic, silly, and sometimes stingingly satirical group who have suffered as many problems with record companies as they have lineup changes. The band formed at the beginning of 1991 with dual MCs Special J and Rabbi J-Slim handling the vocals, Joey Viturbo playing guitar, Sammy B playing the bass, DJ Casper on the keyboards, and Andy Action behind the drums. The cassette demo 6 Songs for 5 Bucks was released that same year, but Eddie...
