This was one of the last great hip-hop albums to come out before the coming of P-Diddy ... materialism culminated in that knuckle dragging ghetto footstomper `Back That Thang Up,'which pretty much turned me for all time from the scene. Oh man, what has HAPPENED to hip-hop? Remember `Check The Rhyme?' Remember `A Roller Skating Jam Named Saturdays?' Well, thankfully the guys in Pharcyde did, and this is their greatest product. Standouts on this one (`Passin' Me By' goes without mentioning - by all means, its a given that you MUST buy this CD simply for that track alone) include Return Of The B-Boy, which has that great Slick Rick salt shaker in the back, 4 Better Or 4 Worse, Otha Fish (a real heartbreaker), Ya Mama, and Pack The Pipe.
Lyrics are unrepetitive (though Its Jiggaboo Time is kinda), slick, and intelligent. The skits are a riot - not a waste of space like on most CD's (when somebody says `Ya mama is an extra on The Simpsons, well...hell man, that's just gold...), and those lovely, lovely, beats. These guys really made themselves the clown princes of hip-hop with this effort.
This was hip-hop's swan song. Historians will mark this album as the last great hurrah for this musical style, before guys like Puffy and Master P ushered in the age of mean-spirited, out-for-number1 money grubbing, crummy stereotypes, and lazy audio fluff.
If you like De La Soul, or A Tribe Called Quest, pick this up.

This album was the soundtrack to my high school senior life in '95. It was always playing when my friends and I would be chillin' or getting up to no good. I began to have this haunting yearning to have it again (I was stupid enough to never have bought it before) and I would hear ghostly melodies and hilarious lines swirling in my mind every now and then , and it would almost make me cry -- I wanted to find it, but no one, not even who I considered to be hard-core hip hop aficionados even knew who I was talking about when I'd say: Do you have The Pharcyde? The blank look on their faces would blow my mind! It's been calling to me ever since: Passing Me By is one of the most sad, yet beautiful, songs ever. And who couldn't relate to the excitement that QUENTIN'S ON HIS WAY AND IT'S OKAY?! If you love chilled- out, sometimes hyper, but always sincerely crazy music, check this out before it disappears off the face of the Earth. I'm gonna make my grandkids listen to this, because this is an amazing specimine of feel-good music (which is so much nicer when shared with your homies.) I'm so happy I finally found it here! I was beginning to think it was out of print. Yo, five stars and then some!

The Pharcyde's 1993 release, Bizarre Ride to the Pharcyde, is the definition of the early 90's hip hop, mixing the Native Tongue sound with a distinct west Coast attitude. this cd doesn't get old, it's as good in 1999 as it was the day it was released. Even the skits are funny. Actually, even if the rest of the cd sucked, this release would be a classic based solely on the greatest, most humble, hip hop song ever, Passin' me by. If you can't relate to what the guys are saying, you either haven't lived or you're in denial. But the whole cd is dope, from beginning to end, each song a different manifestation of the Pharcyde's individual and collective unique personalities. You've never heard a cd like this before,but I guarentee if you love hip hop or at least have an open mind to other kinds of music like hip hop, you'll agree that this cd is a classic. So buy it now, and take the bizarre ride.

If you listened to the Pharcyde recently and never heard of them before, you'd swear they were new. They were just filthy back then, but still their tracks and freestylin' go way beyond what the radio players put on. I don't know why hardly anybody's heard of them, but at the same time I'm glad because I didn't want the Pharcyde's music being played out by everyone. Every damn song on this CD is good. Most props go to 'On the DL', 'Soulflower', 'Officer', 'Passin Me By', 'Otha Fish', and 'Ya Mama'. SlimKid Tre is like the most unique rapper I've ever heard (listen to Otha Fish, and you'll know what I'm talking about.) If you don't have this album yet, GET IT! Cuz if all you're listening to is Puffy and Mase, you really are missing out on true hip-hop.

You can't go wrong with buying this classic hiphop album.
The album not only has great lyrics, but great jazzy-infused beats.
This album, in my opinion, is the first, greatest, and most consistant album by the group - the Pharcyde.
The group is also able to make their songs humerous, as well as entertaining like the track "Ya Mama", which is basically a track composed of your momma jokes. And the album has the hit "Passing Me By" on it, which had a real cool video.
Also, the album comes with a cool looking fold-out insert/poster.

Format: MP3 Music Verified Purchase
First things first - this is a hip hop classic, one of my all time favorite albums and one of the greatest albums to come out of the genre. This review in no way reflects my feelings on the music, which will always have a special place in my heart; it's about the mp3 formatting, which leaves so much to be desired. Each track as a two second pause hard encoded into the audio! This is one of those great musical experiences where ideally one track flows straight into the next, but instead, each track ends with a jarring silence, then picks up with a bit of the beginning of the next track, then the next track starts right away. I'm guessing whoever encoded this album for download from Amazon either did a subpar rip, or - even worse - transcoded older mp3s from the era when a short buffer was built into each file.

And what's more, this is labeled explicit - but the singles are edited!

Overall I'm terribly disappointed, the price is great and, again, this is one of the definitive albums from both the genre and the era. I was so excited to find it here for so cheap! Some will of course think I'm being overly picky, but of all the mp3 albums I've bought from Amazon, this is the first time I've run into either of these problems. If I had any inkling that either problem was present, I would have looked to other sources to get my nostalgia fix.
