Sony 2000

Bong gurgles and police radios enhance this historical album as B Real and Sen Dog remember the hardest raps since Les Claypool wrote “Tommy The Cat”. Spanning a 9 year oeuvre, CH let a hard rock band extend the violent and resinated message at the same time. On songs like the hit “Rock Superstar”, the unit melds like Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath. Unifying riffs with open dialogue makes a hard mix worthy of absinthe.

The true moment of glory is when B Real dresses as a cop and delivers a poem from the point of view of a “pig” in “Through The Eyes Of A Pig”. The band settles intoa nearly dubbed riff as B Real haunts us with a performance that is sure to be remembered for years by my generation....
