AllMusic Review by

On their sixth LP (and first after breaking with the Om label), the West Coast underground rap heroes known as People Under the Stairs present another high-energy excursion into the feel-good, party-themed hip-hop of yesteryear with FUN DMC. Thes One and Double K journey back (way back) before the indie rap heyday of the mid-1990s, giving numerous nods to the old school’s various eras. Against all odds, the B-boy-centric duo once again reformulates hip-hop nostalgia into a finely crafted product that is infinitely fresher and more original than the genre-bending work of their contemporaries.
