AllMusic Review by

Arizona natives Woodpile deliver an arsenal of rowdy rhymes over dark, synthed-up beats on their debut release, THE STREETS WILL NEVER BE THE SAME. Unapologetic white boys who describe themselves as the Beatles to Eminem's "Elvis of Rap," Woodpile give insight into their enigmatic title on the intro to "I'm A Wood," as a little girl asks her dad what "Wood" means. "A cracker, a peckerwood, a hardwood. Hell, you know the Woodpile" is the unexpected response. Eclectic and well-schooled in the musical elements of the game, the Wood's style takes influence from various realms of hip-hop, including down south crunk, west coast gangsta, and east coast grime.
