Editorial Reviews

2006 release from this Australian Hip Hop outfit. Hilltop Hoods have been performing live and writing Hip Hop music for over ten years. On the stage, Hilltop Hoods consisting of MC's Suffa, Pressure and DJ Debris, bring their music alive with their warm-blooded rhymes and electric stage presence Their trademark combination of Jazz influenced beats, solid lyrics, tight flows and a localized viewpoint is why so many people are taking about Hilltop Hoods and why they won't be labeled up-and-coming for much longer. Obese.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Hip-Hop January 20, 2006
By Cojiro
Format:Audio CD
With hip-hop being one of my favorite genres I get sick of all the annoying sex oriented thug garbage that American radio stations play non-stop, which is always giving hip-hop a bad name. Fortunatley, there are artists out there like MF Doom, Del Tha Funky Homosapien, Gorillaz, Danger Mouse, and the Hilltop Hoods that show how hip-hop is just as much a form of music as any other genre is.

The Hoods' music is jazzy, soulful, and it's quick and witty lyrics flow beautifully. The Hilltop Hoods easily put to shame any mainstream rapper in the states. This group has hardly any recognition in the over here, which is unfortunate since they're truly amazing. Definatley check these guys out if you like hip-hop, or maybe even give them a try if you aren't a fan of the genre. A most excellent album indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Australian hip-hop is reaching maturity December 3, 2004
By Andrew
Format:Audio CD
For way too many years, Australian hip-hop sounded plain awkward - mostly because Australian artists were spending too much time trying to sound like their Nth. American counterparts. Of course, the accent gave them away and everything just came across lame.
In this decade we are privileged to be witnessing the birth of real Australian hip-hop. Distinctly Australian with Oz lingo, issues and sayings, distinctly groovy with elegant, jazz-influenced mixing that puts anything from Europe to shame and thought-provoking lyrics that don't get bogged down in the kind of market-driven pretentiousness that too often mars Nth American pop-rap.
The Hilltop Hoods have been leading this Oz hip-hop birth for the better part of 10 years and now, they're hitting their stride with this classic. Smooth, lyrically genius, samples from everywhere (everything from Dudley Moore and Melanie Safka to flute solos that'd make St. Germain envious) looped and stitched together seemlessly. Bound to demand listening with the "repeat" button taped into the "on" position.

5.0 out of 5 stars undoubtably! May 15, 2004
Format:Audio CD
it may not be the very best australian has EVER put out, but this is undoubtably the most professional, well produced CD in australian hip hop to date... Darn crap, wish they had sound samples, this would jump 100,000 sales positions!
This cd is overly fat, dope, straight up hip hop without the jargon...
hilltop hood and they comin' up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Know Art But I Know What I Like ... March 18, 2006
By Doc
Format:Audio CD
I am 37. Don't know what hip hop means. Like to think I am up with times. Listen to Triple J (best radio station in the known world). But despite my shortcomings I recognize insight and soul ... and these blokes (Aussie for guys) have it. Witty, lyrical, cool and cutting. Along with the The Herd, they make you feel things matter. 77% of you should get a dose.

5.0 out of 5 stars aussie hip hop is happen June 18, 2008
Format:Audio CD
there is a man with a samurai sword on the cover and this sets the tone for the CD. unfortunately this was done better by the wu tang clan 5 years ago and is getting a bit old to have martial arts with hip hop. pressure and suffer are also pictured looking very "STAUNCH" (hmm...just like tornts). they like to dress like the rap crew NWA.
musically the album is really diverse and quite long. my head was nodding right at the intro to some cool samples. then the first song TESTIMONIAL YEAR starts up WOW. they only thing they are testing is my patience with a song that is much too long. hill top hoods like to rap about hip hop and how long they have been rapping.
a stand-out-track is called DUMB ENOUGH. there is some DJ SCRATCHING in this song. this was played on the radio and i can see why. this is another song that got in the hot 100 because people love it and its funny. thumping bassline and horns are very cool. "ITS A SWAN!" I dont get it but i LAWLED SO HARD at this!.
another song that was played on the radio (including ON NOVA!!1!!!!!1) is THE NOSEBLEED SECTION. the nosebleed section means the highest seats in a stadium btw. there is a cool flute sample plus a nice bassline and the horns are cool. this is the BEST oz hip hop EVAR. people love it so much it got played on NOVA and it became the triple j most requested song EVAR. what more can I say? release it as a single, guys! you will be rich! you can also get this for your ringtone.
the longest song is THE CERTIFICATE. this song features many rappers that are friends of hill top hoods. i dunno who they are but it has a cool beat with a bassline and horns. cool!
after this there is a silly song called HILLTOP HOODS. it is pointless and short so i skipped it. it needed some horns and a bassline!
