A timeless classic, captures the angst, anger and energy of youth. Uses great samples, fat basslines and accessible drumbeats. Too simplistic for some, but it's bursting with personality.

A bona fide classic. Even my 8YO knows Brass Monkey as soon as it begins.

As much as I enjoy it, I feel like this is one of those albums that I'd appreciate even more if I had been alive when it was first released.

An enjoyable crossover record. Worth it for, fight for your right, alone, the ultimate geek's party record. All good stuff.

Fantastic album, a benchmark in rap and rap fusion with the mainstream while still maintaining this amazing unique edge that keeps this album sounding fresh. This was one of the albums my dad pretty much raised me on so I get this huge wave of nostalgia when I listen which is like the icing on the cake.
