Sound: Well what's the story, LAPD is the group that half of Korn were before joining Davis and making waves in the music biz. There have been two LP which LAPD have released; as far as I know 1997 their full material was released, so their old record label could capitalize on the success of Korn. So what is this album like, well it's not polished the vocals are something between Hardcore/Mike Patton raps. The drums are very monotonous, but they mix quite well with the funk of the bass and guitar. I have to say LAPD is somewhere between Primus/early Faith No More/Slayer type frantic solos and breakdowns the sound is very under done. Head and Munkey prove that in their years they loved to put down some shread nothing technical but quite good none the less. // 7

Lyrics: Lyrics hard to really rate when you can't make out what the hell the vocalist is saying. The vocals are also not something ground braking. Still nothing really bad it's kind of a funky/hardcore vocal with some clear singing from time to time. // 6

Overall Impression: Well since its hardly an album in the traditional since there is no way it can be anything but fragmented, I bet anyone into Korn would like it, if not for something but to just hear that at some point Korn guitarists loved to shread in every single song. Over all the CD is nothing special if compared to other funk metal or alternative metal at the time Primus did it much better, Black Flag vocals are better, the solos are nothing difficult, the drumming is all right but again does serve a purpose. Over all this is an album for Korn Fanatics and people who don't believe that Munkey or Head were ever able to shread. Its not solid and very under produced. // 6
