5.0 out of 5 stars All that and a bag of chips... November 20, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Funky fresh, and musically melodic. The comparison with the Roots IS kind of inevitable, but once you note it, you're quickly swept past it. Mission's mc's are on a much more playful tip. Somewhere between Redman, KMD, and the Coup, these musicians represent for the masses and can't help but remind you of those magical moments when your cousins used to battle in a cypher up the street. It's a very live album. With an unrehearsed personal feel that makes a listener feel like they's sittin in on somthin special.. but in this group, when all the mc's gather round and go blow to blow it's all love...
Musically sound and lyrically swift with lines like "Spread the word love dreams can come true", "You cry 'Keepin it Real' but you should cry 'Keepin It Right'" and "The happiest day of my life was my daughter's birth"
'Disturbing Behavior', 'Last Night', and 'More Than You Know' alone are worth the price of the cd. But the hook to 'Now I Shine' and Kat Ouano's classically styled, dreamy piano solos are an addded bonus that'll make you glad you took it home with you to keep.
Now don't just sit there, go get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars damn.. these guys got some skillz.. July 15, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I can't forget how I bought this CD... I was chillin at Tower records, just checking some stuff out when I heard the intro to this cd starting... Next came the track 'contagious', and I couldn't figure out who these guys were. I ran upto the counter and told them to sell me whatever CD that they were just playing... So, that's how I picked up this CD.. totally random, and I must say I'm lucky as hell.. if i wasn't at that store at that time, I prolly would've never known these guys..
anyone who happens to run in to this review, do yourself a favor, and pick this CD up. Nice rhymes, beats, etc. etc. They have a flavor that is similiar to the Roots, but that might be because they have a live bassist. All in all, just ill as hell.. definitely wanna see them blow up!!

5.0 out of 5 stars whats the excuse now? April 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD
how many of these are like "I won't give this thing 5 stars cuz it's not 36 chambers, criminal minded or public enemy" and who the hell put the chronic in that list?
mission is dope, nuff said, and if 5000 stupid kids vote and all give nelly and ja fool 5 stars calling him the best 'rappa' eva, i think a quality album like 'mission' deserves everything we can give it...
QUALITY production and nice rhymes... concept tracks, anti consumerist tracks and creative tracks and polished beatmaking... i listen to this album more than the roots...
peace,

5.0 out of 5 stars DOPE DOPE underground Hip Hop. June 7, 2006
Format:Audio CD
In 2000 I stumbled across the EP to this album in a random record store on a recommendation from a random stranger. I listened to it in the store. First track - Its The.

WOAH.

Crazy, refreshing, melodic, inspired, DOPE hip hop. Been in love with em ever since. Now six years later I still count this as my favorite hip hop i've ever heard. If you havent heard it, check it out. One of a kind.

Just wish these guys put out more music. Anyone know what ever happened to Mission?

5.0 out of 5 stars More than Just Rhyme Skills August 23, 2001
Format:Audio CD
While obviously influenced by the mighty Roots crew, Mission have still managed to set themselves apart from the highly saturated world of hip hop "bands." Keyboardist Kat, drummer Max MacVeety, and bassist Headnodic all attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. Check out "It's The...," and hear Kat show off her classically trained chops as she opens the track with a Bach piece. Although the last non-MC of the group, Woodstock, doe not play a traditional instrument per say, his work on the sampler helps round out their sound.
To compliment the instrumentalists are MCs Moe Pope and Rashaan Ahmad who lace each track with buttery smooth deliveries and insightful lyrics. "Disturbing Behavior" is probably one of the catchiest anti-materialism songs that I've ever heard.
Don't sleep on this album. Pick it up now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better late then never... October 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album three years ago on recommendation, and was completely astounded by it's sound. I popped it in the stereo tonight for first time since then and thoroughly enjoyed it even more. As I matured, so did it's listening pleasure. I'm not one to compare a musicians (yes, I will definitely call them musicians) ability with that of another; the Mission has thier own voice, and for a first album, I believe they were impressively successful. I wish they had a cult following, because it would take that kind of following to keep up their motivation to succeed more, and to surpass whatever initial boundaries that was at first laid in their youthful minds. I couldn't possibly have predicted their future--and maybe they do have one, and that I haven't done my homework completely, but I haven't heard so much a word about them in the hip-hop macrocosm. In decaying times of music, Mission was certainly a breath of fresh air. I can think of a number of bands that were not revolutionary, but did have that defined value to them that made their era of music stand out. It's unfortunate they were cast into a realm of the "neo-soul" period, which introduced very talented acts, but also introduced horrific "poetry-peace/show off" repugnent crap. Neo-soul became less of a renaissance and more of a way to get some ass. I give them four stars--rarely does anyone ever deserve that--Mission does, and that's sayin' something.
