Slightly Stoopid: Everything You Need
2

Sound — 8
Stoopid's sound is very original. Basically, it is a mix between Bob Marley, The Kottonmouth Kings, and Jack Johnson. The songs range on Everything You Need range from rap, reggae, acoustic rock, to even punk rock. This album defined Slightly Stoopid's unique style, breaking away from the sound that it started with that sounded suspiciously like Sublime. However, the songs are for the most part, very simple and repetitive and can get very old after awhile. But in small doses, to me at least, they are fairly decent.

Lyrics — 3
The lyrics, which are all almost obviously written while high, are not very good at all. I would like Stoopid much more if they had at least one song that they took more than fifteen minutes to write. The singers, while maybe not saying anything meaningful, have great voices which are almost musical instruments on their own.

Overall Impression — 6
This album, while it is not my favorite, is still decent. It is a very original sound which is hard to find lately in this age of "The combination" (two guitars, bass, drum, whiney singer). If I lost this album, I would probably just download it, but I wouldn't buy it from a store again. Don't let me (or the terrible band name) deter you from giving them a listen, they definitely deserve it. They have an original sound that has yet to be ripped off.

    I wouldn't buy a album from a band named "slightly stoopid" but, I suppose Limp Bizkit can sell a few albums, why can't these guys.

    i love this band, but i gotta say, this is probably their worst album, if you want a killer reggae album, pick up closer to the sun by them, and if you want more punk rock, then get the longest barrel ride or self titled. and if you get all of these cd's but want more of that kind of music, listen to the expendables, sacrifice is a good one
