Sound — 8
Vinatge 60's-80's feel to it. Hip-hop beat, rap, more rap in it more than anything else. The overall sound is pretty good. I'm not one for hip-hop though, I bought the cd for my sister's 13th birthday present. She likes rap and hip-hop and pop, so she loves the cd. She's give the sound rating a 5- excellent.
Lyrics — 6
Some of the lyrics are good, but I wasn't really impressed by them. The best songs (that I liked on the cd) are: "Hey Mamma" and "Shut Up". "Let's Get It Started" would be on my list, but I explain why it isn't - below.
Overall Impression — 4
I haven't heard any of their later stuff so I don't know how this one compares. I was pretty mad about their video on tv which was titled "Let's Get It Started". When my sister and I listened to the cd, they kept saying "Let's get retarded", I don't think that's very nice, so I was mad. I checked teh back on the cd and it was titled "Let's get retarded". And when I watched the video again on tv, It was: Let's get it started". So I think that is lying pretty much.
