5.0 out of 5 stars **** 4 STARS IN ROLLING STONE... October 28, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
Two geeky hip-hop siblings who left New Orleans after Katrina and wound up in Los Angeles, the Knux draw their sound from astonishingly diverse precedents: OutKast and De La Soul, obviously, but also Fishbone, the Cars, Prince's Controversy, the Prodigy's big beats. What that hodgepodge adds up to is the year's best hip-hop debut.

The juxtapositions reveal a wit that runs decades deep. "Life in a Cage" name-drops Elvis Costello over a human-beatbox routine borrowed from the Fat Boys; "Roxxanne" defends its subject against the "misogynistic tone" of UTFO or the Police. By letting disparate elements compete for space, the Knux consistently build momentum. Incidental voices party in the background; heavy reggae bass lines underline heavy-metal guitars; electronic gurgles dance the mess around. Krispy Kream and Rah Al Millio play their own instruments, and for rappers so committed to rocking their music hard, they're remarkably adept at keeping it from ossifying into lead.

Wordy but never frantic, coolheaded but never bored, the Knux have no qualms about segueing an indelible single about guns into an even more indelible one about cappuccino. And "The True" addresses America's racial line from a vantage point Obama might relate to: "It's gotta be white, it's gotta be black, it can't be gray as a matter of fact." Life is complicated, they know. But it's also a blast.

The knux are an awesome band, who mix classic elements of both hip hop and rock (in a non cheesy way) to make incredibly eclectic and fresh music. this cd is definitely worth the money, i promise you wont be disappointed.

These boy from Louisiana, are just what hip hop desperately need right now!!! Fresh new innovation with old school lyrics. For proof of this, all you must do is, listen to MORE THAN JUST THE HOOK! The hooks are simple but the verses are tight. I also have to give them "mad props" for their incorporation of the guitar. Taking Wyclef Jean idea and taking it to levels above and beyond. I hope to hear more from them soon. These guys are keeping hip hop on life support.

Purchased the cd after see them live at SXSW on Carson Daley's show. Figured the cd wouldn't be as good as they were live but wow, I was wrong! This cd rocks and the confluence of Old Skool, rock and all sorts of other influences makes this band stand out from the others. I can't help but laugh and dance around while listening to this! Possibly the only thing that manages to get me up out of my computer chair!

I *never* listen to rap or hip-hop but I can't say I'd call this either of those... more like Punk Rap. Like others have said, all sorts of hats off can be heard here.

Get ready to party!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lights Camera Action! April 13, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
I rarely listen to rap/hip-hop music however I gave this group a try after reading some good reviews about them on Rolling Stone magazine. They are great. Most of their songs are up-tempo and they have bunch of them! My favorite one is Lights Camera Action. Other great songs are: The List, Bang Bang, Fire, Cappuccino, Roxxanne, Shine Again and Powder Room.

5.0 out of 5 stars You must get this album May 16, 2009
By Brady F
Format:Audio CD
This album is unbelievably good. They're somewhat similar to Outkast. They are Old School and the future simultaneously. I can't see enough good things about it. Just get it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Knux are the T*&s! February 5, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Just great stuff all around... if you start out as a fan of Capuccino, you may listen to the album and be like, "aw, man, this isn't exactly what i expected," but the rest of it will grow on you until you can't stop listening.
