Their "deep" songs are silly, and their silly songs are stupid.
Nathan White
The key to the Knux sound is the live instruments, especially the electric guitar.

If you like N.E.R.D and Outkast, you will definately be feelin' this album.

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

When the gun goes bang bang bang, who's gonna know who's the one? No, nobody knows.
When the gun goes bang bang bang, who's gonna know who's the one? No, nobody knows.

Takin' it back to 94, when [censored] was dealin' the finest soul,
Crack the hit then [censored] it up, and baby gangstas was full of they cluck.
Pluck the feathers up off the duck, you stuck like chuck if carried the banter
Pistol player knuckled up, then better to telling the children to scatter
Everyone knows don't [censored] with them [censored] drinking with keisha from out they yo
Full of that clearly pop a silly when [censored] first heard the choppers city
And I was a dancin' b-boy who resorted to slinging them heat boys
And jackin' them cars, mackin' them broads, sadistic [censored], then flipped the script.
I don't wan' sound like a hypocrite, but momma raised me for greatness,
but we broke as [censored] and hope is stuck and New Orleans defines the cage hits
The animal house like getting out like takin' food from a animals mouth,
roar roar like the dungeon dragon, takin' it back to the cannibals house

When the gun goes bang bang bang, who's gonna know who's the one? No, no nobody knows.
When the gun goes bang bang bang, who's gonna know who's the one? No, no nobody knows.

I'm from a place you couldn't imagine, beautiful women some Creole with ass

Them [censored] are hazards, we [censored] they crabbin', and changin lanes like benjamin massing
From 10 to 12 they thinkin' it's cool, something awful when they aint in the mood.
Don't get 'em bent, [censored] that innocence, cause in a sense they film as you.
Where they mommas at, where they mommas at? Nobody knows, nobody cares.
