Biography

Cypress Hill has long represented the will of the people. The Los Angeles-based trio of rappers B-Real and Sen Dog and producer DJ Muggs provided distinctive insight into the harsh realities of ghetto life, championed marijuana before it became fashionable and made it acceptable for rappers to use Spanish in their rhymes. Given its visionary bent, it makes sense that the group wanted to call ... Read more in Amazon's Cypress Hill Store

4.0 out of 5 stars About 4 1/2 April 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Cypress Hill drop one of their best albums, free of mega-hits, but very solid. It is still what you expect from Cypress Hill; you still can swear that you can smell the weed coming out of the speakers. Cypress Hill puts down 10 solid tracks into wax. But there is more: The "Bones" disc, an EP of six rap-metal songs is one of the best example of true rap-metal this side of Rage. With help from (Rage drummer) Brad Wilk, the boys from Fear Factory, and Sen Dog's metal band, SX-10, this metal disc is a great example of the real rap metal. Real heavy, and real raps. Sorry Mr. Durst.

4.0 out of 5 stars A strong release within the Cypress legacy July 29, 2000
By Adam
Format:Audio CD
A lot of people, like I was orginally, would have been turned off Cypress's new album from the get go. The idea of Rock and Rap, although handled by them well in the 93 era, just isn't that appealing to most hip hop fans. The hip hop on the disc also proved not to be to everyone's liking; a slightly tinny sounding keyboarded orchestral effect was put in place by Muggs, unlike anything he's done before.
However, the album soon grew on me after I decided to give it one last chance. Much like the first, it doesn't initially grab you, but slowly lures you in. Soon the hip hop get addictive, each song contains at least one element that will have you checking it over and over again. Cuban Necktie stands as one of the most outstanding Cypress track yet whilst What You Want From Me, Another Victory, Worldwide, We Live This ----, and High Life also stand as excellent tracks. The disc don't break any new lyrical ground, but we're all so used to B and Sen now that oit shouldn't matter, it's Muggs that has the innovation. He attempted here a classical sound for Cypress, making it a consistent sound for the whole hip hop disc.
The Rock disc also has it's moments of brilliance, namely on Rock Supertsar, Get Out Of My Head, and Can't Get The Best. The others tend fall a bit flat whilst these three show Cypress can out-do any Limp Bizkit at their own game.
The album is at least consistent, much unlike the slight misfire of IV, which was too long. The first album relied on funk, the second on pop hooks and a generally hard sound, the third was jazzy and mystical, the fourth was big beated motivated and varied and this one has a classical string touch. A strong continuation within the ever-chainging sound of Cypress Hill.

3.0 out of 5 stars " Cypress should go back2 orig. formula" September 1, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
" I consider myself to be a true Cypress fan, but after buying this album, I was disappointed. They seemed to rush this album out too fast, after the 1st 3 songs the beats are weak and dont go along with B reals lyrical flow....and the rock disc was ok but not outstanding in any way, Cypress should stick to hip hop or they will lose all their hip hop credibility, plus if you looking 4 some spanish lyrics to spice things up in this album, there is little if none at all."

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! Give Me More And More! February 9, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When I bought this album, I thought I was purchasing an album by the Italian composer Ghispaldi called "Cypresses on the Hill". I don't really listen to any popular music except when I look at Mtv from time to time, so I wasn't sure what to expect from this interesting group. However, I have found this musical journey to be very stimulating and rewarding. There are numerous references to nature and crops, as well as the advantages to keeping it real and avoiding the pitfalls of celebrity.
Get this album, and expand your immediate horizons.
Thanks,
Sr. Paul Cleaver

5.0 out of 5 stars better than limp May 7, 2000
By dora
Format:Audio CD
Okay, I just got this cd and i think everyone should have it. If u like limp bizkit and all them you'll like this cd. It's just plain tight. Some other person said that they did it better than limp bizkit and its true. They got awesome beats. Personally i like the Bones cd better but skulls isnt all that bad. I can almost guaruntee you'll like both. peace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whoa! May 1, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I borrowed this from a friend, not expecting much, but since he said it was cool, I borrowed it. I popped it in and went 'Whoa!' this is tight! This is, without a doubt, the best rap/metal fusion I've heard, bands like Korn and Limp Bizkit don't hold a candle to CH's stuff. Now, when I moved on to the rap half, I was blown away again! If you like rap or rap/rock, you have GOT to check this stuff out.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Cypress Hill cd ever! August 3, 2000
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
This is the best cd they have made yet! All the rap songs on the cd "Skull" are great, they have great beats and lyrics. I listen to this cd for hours at a time and I never switch songs. It's the best cd I own and I have a lot of cds. Then on the Bones cd all the songs are really good i really like the songs called: Cuban Necktie, Highlife, and Certified Bomb but i love all of their songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars good album
Cypress Hill did a good job splitting up with a rap disc and a rock disk. I personally like the rock disc more, but the rap disc is illin it out to. Check this cd out.
