AllMusic Review by

Named after one of their founding members who died shortly before its release, KLR is the debut album from Parisian rap collective Saian Supa Crew. Influenced by the likes of A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, and the Roots, its blend of zouk, soul, reggae, beat-boxing, and humorous, socially conscious lyrics offer an alternative to the aggressive and provocative nature of many of their fellow French hip-hop contemporaries. Produced by DJ Fun and Alsoprodby, the 1999 release includes the singles "Angela" and "Raz de Maree," and a cover version of Anita Ward's disco classic, "Ring My Bell."
