This cd is by far one of Cypress Hill's (CH's) best cds; in my opinion, second best to their "Black Sunday" album.

Cypress Hill was a major breath of fresh air when they came out. They were rapping from a latinos perspective, they dropped beats that were more than dope, and wrote lyrics about everything including weed. You can't deny that as soon as you hear B-real, you know just who it is. I'd hesitate to call this the best album of theirs, but I like it just as much as "Black Sunday", "Temple Of Boom", and "Skull And Bones". Top tracks for me are "Pigs", "Hand On The Pump", "Stoned Is The Way Of The Walk", and "Born To Get Busy". It's all good though. It's a fact that in the summer of 1992, if I wasn't playing House Of Pain or the Beastie Boys, i was listening to Cypress Hill. Of course, I could pretty much say that now as well.

I can't believe anyone in their right mind would give this album anything less than 5 stars.

1) If you are a HIP HOP fan(not rock fan who ALSO likes "rap")

2) If you were actually alive when this came out(or at least old enough to ride a bike)

3) If you are an American(props to Euros keeping Hip Hop alive, but you guys have different taste)

4) And finally if you have actually listened to this album start to finish, 2 or 3 times...

...THEN YOU KNOW THAT THIS IS CYPRESS HILL'S BEST ALBUM EVER. STRATIGHT UP PRE-LOLAPALOOZA/MTV/CROSSOVER HIP HOP DOPENESS. Peace to you heads who were around when this joint dropped.

Back when Cypress Hill first started rapping, they utilized beats and lyrics in a way that only they could. But, after they started focusing on only the "weed" aspect of their music, they dropped off considerably. I don't recommend any of their newer albums, but this album is in a class all it's own. Definitely a must-own for any rap fan.

It's kind of weird for me to see such a group like Cypress Hill debut so long ago, that I wonder where has the time gone? Their self titled debut ranks as one of the top debuts in Hip Hop history. B-Real's nasal flow makes his vocals sound very unique here on the album. Then there is DJ Muggs, who shows his stellar production all throughout the album. Then there is Sen Dog (Mellow Man Ace's brother), who just sound hilarious to me, especially with his background vocals.

Throughout this album, the standouts are easy to pick out. The singles "How Could I Just Kill A Man" and "Hand On The Pump" are both great. Further on the album, you have the track "Stoned Is The Way Of The Walk". Muggs places a spin on the loud horns all on the track. In fact, Muggs' production helps a lot of the tracks standout. It works with Sen Dog on his solo track "Latin Lingo", and I believe that is him rhyming in Spanish on "Tres Equis". Everything comes together on "The Cypress Hill ****", as that is one of my favorite tracks from the group.

Only tracks that really didn't standout for me are "Psycobetabuckdown", and "Real Estate". Both tracks have an innovative Cypress Hill sound, but did absolutely nothing for me.

Cypress Hill's self titled album hold high regards to their longtime fan base. Many may consider this as their best album, and I have to agree. I also recommend you listen to their 1993 follow up album Black Sunday, as it follows the same route as this one. An album with excellent production and great concepts, this album is definitely worth a purchase to add in your collection. Peace.

Cypress Hill's 1991 self titled debut is a very original, entertaining album the likes of which hip hop had never seen before. The group of Cuban MCs from Los Angeles had a style that was totally new to hip hop and proved to be pretty influential, and mostly from this album. "Cypress Hill" is full of weed smoking anthems, paranoid tales of ghetto violence, humor, and excellent production. The rappers B-Real and Sen Dog especially stand out, showing a distinct character from any other rappers in 1991. B-Real's high, nasal voice always sounds both funny and disturbed, and Sen's low gruff voice is the source of most of the yells and chants on the songs. DJ Muggs emerged on this album as one of rap's premier beatmakers, with a style as distinct and creatively original as the RZA or Pete Rock. His use of heavy pounding bass and slow drumbeats are coupled with often infrequent guitar licks and sampling. Overall "Cypress Hill" is one of the most unique and interesting rap albums from the early 90s, and I highly recommend it for the hip hop collection.

The album begins with the deliciously funky "Pigs," an anti-police statement with a looping guitar line and good verses from all parties. The classic song "How I Could Just Kill a Man" follows, the song that shot the group to superstardom. This song demonstrates their crazy style and Muggs's amazing beats, with its soaring synth line and horns. "Hand on the Pump" has a good chorus and similar instrumentals to the first song, and the chant-along "Hole in the Head" has deep bass and great verses. The upbeat smoking anthem "Light Another" allows B-Real to demonstrate a different flow, and the funny "The Phuncky Feel One" follows.
