AllMusic Review by

With song titles like "Savage In The Sack" and "Table Dance" (and those are the tame tracks), this must be the one and only 2 Live Crew. The boys from down South have stayed true to their formula: 135-beat-per-minute drum-machine tracks (that's about as fast as you can program and still be something close to danceable), sexually explicit lyrics, and a proud commitment to bad--well, actually, straight-up awful--taste. There aren't many lines we can quote, but we can tell you that you'll find song after song about women shaking various parts of their bodies, and numerous references to...well, never mind. You'll find a few interesting samples, too. How about "Arcade Funk," the video-game sound clip that gets neatly tucked into "Table Dance"? True party music--bachelor-party music, that is.
