4.0 out of 5 stars DON'T BE PUT OFF! June 18, 2006
By ?
Format:Audio CD
Do not be put off by the reviews & criticism, this is not a disapointment nor is it a lackluster peformance from the legendary JBeez. I'm sick of people comparing it to "Straight out the jungle" and earlier releases, that was almost 10 years before this!! They have evolved!
The sound on "Raw Deluxe" is essentially a much more laid-back, smooth vibe with the captivating production and easy-to-follow lyrics. If anything it is actually more satisfying and well-rounded than "straight out the jungle" as the low quality recording made SOTJ at some points, very un-enjoyable to listen to. Similarly, although respected legends, it was evident that both Afrika and Mike G were nothing special lyrically back in 1988, they were just consistent, and there is no difference here. The lyrics are smooth and full of flava that compliment the beats perfectly, just how it should be. Hip Hop legends De La Soul & Q Tip (Tribe Called Quest) drop by for one of the album's best tracks "How ya want it we got it".
With the beats being handled by the JBeez, Djinji Brown, The Roots, RocRaider & Stereo Mc's it has to be said that the production is the highlight here. As said, laid back - smooth vibes is what your mental will endure with "raw deluxe", straight consistency. Don't hesitate to PICK THIS UP if you are a fan of the JBeez, 90's Hiphop and underground hiphop alike. PEACE!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Material February 19, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This album never gets old, if your were born in the 80's like me this will be your favorite Jungle Brothers album simply because the sound on the other albums is just too dated & this sounds more modern, even though it's ten plus years old the beats stand the test of time plus the lyrics are just dope on the "Political" & "State of the Black Man" tip, I have to admire progressive thinking. If you love De La Soul's "Stakes Is High" you'll love this album. It's a must have for any Native Tongue fan or even todays Justus League fans alike. "You Don't Know where u going, if u don't where u came from" So copped this wonderful album by the JB's, because w/o there'd be no "The Listening"- by Little Brother.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good JB's Album July 9, 2000
By Paul H.
Format:Audio CD
Although this is nowhere near as good as Straight Out The Jungle and Done By The Forces Of Nature, two of the JB's best albums, Raw Deluxe is still a great effort from the JB's. The beats are more stripped down and laid-back, and the JB's chemistry is still here. Check out The Roots-produced "Brain", the Native Tounges reunion on "How Ya Want It We Got It", and the fantastic "Jungle Brother (Stereo MC's Mix)". If you are a fan of the JB's, you may or may not be disappointed, but this is still a good LP that deserves a listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Native Tongues fan? Don't hesitate...buy it. June 20, 2008
By Itchy T
Format:Audio CD
This album is very underrated and slept on.
The Native Tongues posse cut, "How You Want It We Got It" is a must have.
It's not as incredible as "Done By The Forces Of Nature", which is a five star classic.
It's not as daring or original as "....Remedy", but it's a more consistent, entertaining listen than "...Remedy" in my opinion.
A solid record from start to finish.
If you're a Native Tongues fan, just get it.
