Deep Down & Dirty is the fourth album from the Stereo MC's, though it could easily be their 10th, given the number of tracks that have hit the cutting-room floor in the intervening years. And yet just one listen to it makes it seem as if the U.K.'s premier crossover hip-hop act have never been away. The album's title track and lead single find rapper Rob Birch back in inspired form, freestyling those positive vibes over filthy, irresistible funk. "We Belong in This World Together" is a huge sing-along anthem; "Breeze" is dubbed-up urban soul with swirling atmospherics and Vocoder mumblings; "Traffic" is a colossal, up-front groove that culminates with Birch declaring, "It ain't easy, it ain't easy." Clearly not, but you'd never know from listening to this record. --Mike Pattenden

If you have enjoyed their other albums then you will definitely not be disappointed!

They stay true to their original dub-funk, hip-hop beat that blends perfectly with Rob B's raw yet melodious vocals.

Like many other diehard Stereo MC's fan, I've patiently waited for the group's follow-up to their hit 1992 album, "Connected." The wait turned out to be NINE YEARS long, with only the tasty 1998 nugget from "The Avengers" movie soundtrack, "Flash," being any indication that the Stereo MC's, were, in fact, working on material for a new album. But at least Rob Birch & company haven't been idle all this time. They also work as DJ's and producers for other acts, and they run their own record label, too, so progress on the new album was sporadic at best, with the band working on the album off and on over the past few years whenever their various schedules would allow studio time.But here we are in the year 2001, and the new Stereo MC's album, "Deep Down & Dirty," is FINALLY here at last. Was it worth the wait? Absolutely---it's like the group never left! "Deep Down & Dirty" immediately reminded me why I dig this group so much---they're the only act I can think of who can blend rap & hip-hop with dance grooves and rockin' beats into a truly irresistible shake-your-booty melting pot of music and rhythm & do it so intelligently. I can never get enough of Rob B's charismatic, commanding voice, with his unique half-sung, half-rapped approach, or the incredible samples, grooves, and production to the band's music. The Stereo MC's are a slammin' studio collective, and after a nine-year sabbatical, "Deep Down & Dirty" is an excellent reminder of what the Stereo MC's are capable of.Click on any one of the audio samples and hear for yourself what I'm talking about. "Deep Down & Dirty" will have you bobbing your head in no time. The Stereo MC's are back, y'all---put on this groovy new CD and celebrate!

As music transcends words, as the rhythm defies definition, so will any review fail analyze this album. Not that there is some thing mysterious about it, nor dose it speak in tongues. I feel it is right to say that in this album the whole is much larger then the sum of the words written about it. It is complete in the sense that every track is good as a stand alone jewel, it is complete in the sense that combined together they are even better. This album IS about music, and there is little to add in term of labels, for any cataloging will fail dead in its tracks.
This album is not for the faint hart, for the seekers of serenity, it is not for those who listen to dwell in soft ambient light. It is hard and fast. It is the rock and the hard place.
It gave me many hours of pleasure. A pleasure that came from deep down inside.

Well worth the 9 year wait. Some bands get worse with age but not so with Stereo MC's. They stay true to their original dub-funk, hip-hop beat that blends perfectly with Rob B's raw yet melodious vocals. This CD is just as good as Connected and Supernatural. Dig down deep into your pockets and buy this!

The long awaited return of Stero MC's "Deep, Down & Dirty" is a mind-blowing album that sounds like no other act does in dance music.
Listening to this album you'll realize how influential this guys were for a whole era of music and continue to be. There's not even one bad track here. From the mesmerizing title track to the set's final piece "Shameless" it's a 50 minute of amazing techno-funk and groove.
Worth every penny and the nine year wait! Listened to it 3 times back-to-back when i first got it and seems to be impossible to get enough of. Not only the best album of the year but also the best album of the past 2 years and most probably the next 2.
You're a fool if you miss it!!!

Stereo Mc's
Deep Down and Dirty
Island/Universal
Over the years, Stereo MC's Connected would never left my cd player for months on end. One of the most entertaining live acts to come out of the early 90's, they opened and blew fellow alty-brats Jesus Jones out of the water when they appeared in Montreal to support the seminal release back in 1992. UK's premier crossover hip hop act release Deep Down and Dirty some nine years later only to show their absence has made them deeper, downer and dirtier and tighter with the funk. Rob Birch's unique commanding, half-rap, half-sung mantra is back along with an irresistible, filthy fusion of rap, funk, with stabs of dance rock blockin' beats. Lead off single/title track "Deep Down and Dirty" remind us of what made Connected such a refreshing, melting pot of booty shaking rhythm and rhyme. "We Belong In This World Together" a sing along anthem, reminds us about the positive/intelligent lyrical quotient the band is known for. "Breeze" and "Traffic" are the standout dubbed up urban tracks that highlight stellar levels of production along with the culmination of all the variables into a near flawless mix.

Hey, it is not another "Connected", but once you get over that, you'll be able to appreciate what a great set this is. Give a solid listen to "Breeze", "Graffiti, Pt. 2", "Sophisticated", "Traffic", "Shameless", and possibly the best song on the CD, "The Right Effect". If the future direction for the Stereo MC's implied by the two songs "Breeze" and "Graffiti, Pt. 2" -- and has a healthy dose of classic Stereo MC's irreverent rap-poetry -- then take my money now. Just don't make me wait so long for the next set.
