Super super super - wie neu - und das bei einer Kult-CD von 1991
Artikelbeschreibung
This album is great. The opening track, DFLO Shuttle, is prestinely infectious and my personal favorite; it calls for the repeat button and that loopy hook will pin-ball in your head all day urging you to call in sick from work and go to the beach.

The lengthy concluding number "Good Thing We're Rappin'" doesn't do much for me. I find it to be too long and it's lack-luster structure strays from what made DU shine. I get the fact that they are paying homage to their love of music and how it has steered them away from another lifestyle, but in the delivery this becomes a mediocre Ice Cube narrative to my ears. Maybe the group was itching to try the "Too $hort" formula... it's not particularly awful, just sort of boring compared to the dizzying heights the rest of the album already took the listener.

I urge any serious music buff to re-visit the music of Digital Underground. I never fully appreciated their excellence until years later when my developed adult ear was capable of acknowledging just how clever, articulate and ahead of their times this group was. There is a sensitive politically conscious human message here. Shock G's charismatic, passionate delivery allows him to make deep statements without sounding preachy, or abrasive- in fact to the contrary he's selectively hilarious and easy to listen to on the whole.
