With the absence of Flesh (when was he ever a full-fledge member?) and the enigmatic Bizzy Bone, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony is down to the core trio of Wish, Layzie, and Krayzie Bone. And even though they've been holding it down most of the time, the years haven't been very friendly to the Cleveland natives. After years of disappointing projects and a fan base that is completely shaken up, the crew is fighting to prove their importance to the ever-changing rap game. Strength & Loyalty could spell either a inevitable end or a prosperous beginning for the new lineup. The Game holds his own next to the Bone members on "Streets" with help from Will.i.am on production. The super radio-friendly "I Tried" is a no-brainer with the mellow beat riding under their subdued vocals and guest vocals from Akon. Akon pops up again on the somber album closer "Never Forget Me." Mariah Carey and Bow Wow infuse their talents into "Lil Love" while Swizz Beatz brings his expertise for "Bump In The Trunk." And the brilliant pairing of the collective with their fellow Midwesterner Twista for "C-Town" marries the rap styles nicely since they are so similar. Thankfully though, Bone can sustain without the collabos as well. "Sound The Same" speaks to the ever repetitive story of people trying to escape the hood anyway they can. The sinister sounding "9MM" is a throwback to their darker early days of rapping, along with thugged-out "Gun Blast" and the hyperactive delivery of "Flowmotion." And even though the Fleetwood Mac sample on "Wind Blow" is out of place on this LP, Strength & Loyalty redeems the faith in the group by their long-standing fans. And with the remaining members of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony each showing their worth throughout the album, there's no reason for anyone to write them off just yet.

My son is one of the biggest Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony fans. Ever since he heard songs like "First Of The Month", "Thuggish Ruggish Bone", "Crossroads" & "Home" they've been his all-time favorite rap group. And ever since Flesh Bone's incarceration & Bizzy Bone leaving he never thought they would ever come out with another album. He saw that they had a new video on MTV Jams and went right online to find out when the release date was and on May 8th he drove straight to Target after school and picked it up. I'm not that big on rap music these days but he talked me into listening to their new album "Strength And Loyalty", a 14 track album with no skits no intro's. I loved how it sounded and some of the samples they used. They really do have a lot of talent. I had to look at the booklet just to make sure Twista wasn't in this group. My son had to guide me through who was spitting what verse.

The album gets off to an excellent start with track 1 "Flow Motion", which samples one of my favorite songs from back in the day "Sky High" by Jigsaw. Everybody gives the listeners a reminder of how fast they can rap. Track 2 is "Bump In The Trunk" which features Swizz Beatz. The title is self explanitory. Is a great song to blast in the car. The bass guitar is good but the only flaw to this song is that Swizz Beatz adds nothing to the song except a repetitive hook. It's a little lack luster. Track 3 "Wind Blow" is probably the biggest standout from any other song on here. It samples Fletwood Mac's "The Chain". And the topic of the song is great. they explain that it's a shame that people jump on their bandwagon just because they are now on the radio. At first listeners might get turned off because in the beginning it sounds like a country song but it's one of the better tracks on here.

I was probably one of the few who didnt feel Thug World Order and Thug Stories but enough with how I feel. Bone is back with another album that is a huge step up from their previous two. The album starts off with the fast paced Flow Motion which reminds me of the Bone I was fond of from the start. Bump In The Trunk is cool plus that hook was taken from Thuggish Ruggish Bone. The first single I Tried featuring Akon is a heartfelt cut that is definetly a standout and Akon also shows up on the superb Never Forget Me. Lil Love with Bowwow and Mariah Carey is an honorable mention that my girlfriend is insanely in love with(I'M SERIOUS!!!). Im glad that Bone buried the hatchet with Twista because C-Town is a damn good song as all three kick high speed rhymes over sleek production provided by Neo Da Matrix. Yolonda Adams(yes, you've read that part right) joins in on the spiritual Order My Steps. The Game finally gives you a dope verse where he didnt heavily namedrop(SURPRISE!)on the will.i.am assisted Streets. The only songs I would say that are skippable is Candy Paint(corny and forced) and Wind Blow(not bad but sounds out of place as the other reviewer mentioned). Bottom Line: Strength & Loyalty is Bone Thugs N Harmony's best work to date and is undeniably one of the best albums of 2007. Not only do they prove that they still have what it takes to make a great album but they also proved that they can still make a good album without Bizzy Bone. Standout Tracks: FLOW MOTION, BUMP IN THE TRUNK, I TRIED, NEVER FORGET ME, C-TOWN(my favorite), ORDER MY STEPS, STREETS, 9MM, GUN BLAST and SOUNDS THE SAME. Honorable Mention: Lil Love. PS will somebody please let me know whats the name of the bonus track?
