AllMusic Review by

Its easy to see why the Kottonmouth Kings are such likely protégés for the Insane Clown Posse. Like the wicked Clowns the Kings are a white, hardcore rap duo with "parental advisory" lyrics with a sound that's almost identical. Instead of Faygo and the dark carnival, Kottonmouth Kings bust rhymes about smoking weed. While not really having much to say other than lobbying for the legalization of cannabis, the album does have entertaining moments, especially on the tracks "We the People" and "Wickit Klowns" a collaboration with (you guessed it) ICP. This album will no doubt have a strong appeal among teenage males looking to drive their parents crazy. Adults disturbed by the content should listen to the CD closely because beneath the hardcore rap exterior the songs often act as tributes to wholesome drug anthems of the past. The words "legalize it" made famous by reggae great Peter Tosh grace the album cover, and at one point the two bust into a near endless repetition of the Grateful Dead's immortal refrain "What a long strange trip its been."
