Album Review

As there truly wasn't enough material to warrant a greatest-hits compilation from either House of Pain or frontman Everlast's faux-folk solo career without succumbing to bottom-feeding filler, Rhino had the good sense to combine highlights of the two onto one disc. All of the group's finest moments are in place and sequenced totally out of order. However, kicking things off nicely is the anthem that got the Irish boys rolling in the first place, "Jump Around." It still sounds as timeless and energetic nearly a decade along, as does its follow-up, "Shamrocks and Shenanigans." Everlast's solo career is also well documented with his two chart successes, "What It's Like" and "Black Jesus," both making appearances early on in the release. But the most welcome surprise is the inclusion of the rap-metal prototype "Just Another Victim," a collaboration between House of Pain and Helmet that was originally released on the Judgment Night soundtrack. While the compilation does lull at some points (due mainly to having the biggest hits first), it's a solid collection that is appealing and accessible to the most seasoned die-hard fan as well as the casual listener.

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s, '00s

"Jump Around," an impossibly infectious and catchy single, instantly elevated House of Pain from an unknown white hip-hop group to near-stars when it became a massive crossover hit in 1992. It made the band and it also broke the band, consigning them to the level of one-hit wonders. House of Pain continued to release records after their eponymous 1992 debut and "Jump Around," yet none of them gained much attention, partially because of the band's self-consciously loutish behavior. Led by rapper Everlast,...
