A helluva unpretentious funky party album from the Black Eyed Peas! We won't lie to you, we were prepared to despise the new album, thanks to that hideous Dr. Pepper commercial – but Elephunk is the kind of happy surprise we live for around here. There's just no denying how strong the hooks, how fat and funky the beats, and how deeply catchy just about every track is. The sung choruses cut right to the bone, and the production is all about crisp electric funk & soul – enough to make us think that Will I Am is probably one big crossover hit away from a lucrative career as a producer. This is the kind of hip hop album Sly Stone would have made – BYP wants EVERYONE to get down to this thing, all politics and hipster posturing aside. The groove is all inclusive – whether you're into Jay Dee or Justin Timberlake, you're gonna find a reason to like this album! Includes "Hands Up", "Labor Day (It's A Holiday)", "Let's Get Retarded", "Shut Up", "Smells Like Funk", "Latin Girls", "Sexy", "The Boogie That Be", "Where Is The Love", and more. © 1996-2013, Dusty Groove, Inc.
