Album Review

What differentiates the Kottonmouth Kings' Cloud Nine from the rest of their huge discography isn't the subject matter — it's still weed, rebellion, weed, and weed — but the general feeling that about a quarter of the songs here are more influenced by the Cali alt-rock of Sugar Ray and Smash Mouth than ICP, even though the evil clowns do show up for the "blaze your own trails" anthem "Think 4 Yourself." There are still those punk numbers that sound like the Beastie Boys if they never grew up and some good, hard-hitting hip-hop, like when guest Tech N9ne shines all over "City 2 City," but "One Day" is a surprisingly bright and dreamy number that perfectly suits a bunch of punkish stoners growing old. The reggae light of "Pass It Around" would play fine at any all-inclusive resort, and the laid-back "Proud to Be a Stoner" sounds like it was found stuck between the seats of a 1972 hippie van. If there's any reason to worry about this mellowing, it's that sometimes the production sounds too button-up for the punk and rock-rap numbers, although "Loadies" gets it just right thanks to some gutsy fuzz guitar. A few fans might fall off, a few fans might jump on because of the group's ever-growing love of chillin' and sunshine, but this otherwise straight-up-the-middle Kings album won't surprise or sway most.

Best CD since Rollin Stoned

This CD is a true return to form for KMK. While I enjoyed the last couple of CDs, they seemed to lose some of the great vibe and variety that earlier KMK album's had and replaced it with more "thug" type songs in the vein of the King Spade CDs. Don't get me wrong, that stuff was still good, but it just didn't have the same magic. However, the tracks on Hidden Stash III caused me to think that they were going to return to what made them my favorite band of all time (I have the cover of No. 7 tattooed on my shoulder!). When I picked up this CD the day it came out I wasn't disappointed. There is a great variety of pure hip-hop, reggae inspired tracks, mellow acoustic tracks, and their great rip-hop rap/punk hybrid. The lyrics are better and more diverse then the last couple of albums, and although the vast majority of songs are still about smoking weed, which is not a bad thing, there are some more songs about other subjects like political corruption and wishing for peace on earth, much like their Rollin Stoned CD. Also, the collaborations on the CD are the best to date, and even if you hate Insane Clown Posse, the track "Think 4 Yourself" will have you bobbing your head to the beat and in agreement with what they say about so-called celebrity culture. And to top it all off, I saw them in concert a couple of weeks ago and their live set is better than ever! So, in conclusion, this is the best KMK CD in awhile, and although some people simply dismiss them as being a bunch of unoriginal stoners, the fact that they are still making the music they want to make for the people who want to hear it means all the haters mean absolutely nothing.
