Editorial Reviews

You have reached a pinnacle, a peak in a journey that began years ago, when the Dark Carnival opened its gates and the Insane Clown Posse unleashed the Carnival of Carnage. That was the first of six mighty Joker's Card albums, a decade-spanning saga that climaxed with the platinum-selling Great Milenko and Amazing Jeckel Brothers, and wrapped with a vision of the afterlife, The Wraith: Shangri-La and Hell's Pit. The Joker's Cards had been dealt, but the Carnival carried on, as the caravan entered The Calm, 2005's record-breaking EP. That was just a prelude, an opening chapter to a new era for the Insane Clown Posse's Dark Carnival chronicle. The storm has loomed on the horizon, but now The Tempest is here Hold on tight, that's not just your life flashing before your eyes. It's a story of life, death, sin and redemption, conducted in the clouds by the Insane Clown Posse, and you're about to drop in. get ready to ride the wind.

I only bought this album because I knew that Mike E Clark had hooked up with ICP again.
Andrew P. Kluka
GROWING AGAIN-this is one of my favorite tracks on the album, the concept for this song is great.
Anyway, I recommend this to ALL Juggalos, horrorcore rap fans and all underground rap fans.

I'm going to start this by quoting one of the reviewers below (dklotusjuggalo... whose original review apparently got deleted), who hit the nail right on the head with this comment... "Of course, not everything has to be wicked, but after "Shangri-La" AND "The Calm" AND "The People," I think the Juggalos are ready to go back to the Wicked Shxt, not J singing over a piano." Right on brother. And that's exactly what I was thinking before even purchasing this album. I've been a juggalo since 1997 and I still consider Riddlebox and Milenko my favorite ICP albums. They were not only the pinnacle of the wicked shxt, but also contained originality, great story telling, and production that was right on par with the carnival/horror theme.

Since then, there has been lots of material that I have still liked from ICP, but nothing that I would consider to be as good as the time frame from Ringmaster to Milenko. The Amazing Jeckle Brothers was a very good album... Bizaar/Bizzar was mediocre, but still had some redeeming qualities... Shangri-La was the first time that I felt ICP really let me down with an album... Hells Pit was an improvement, but still nowhere near the quality of the old stuff... and The Calm had a few good tracks, but it seemed like something that should be given away for free on the Internet rather than being justified as an actual release.

That being said, obviously my expectations weren't through the roof for The Tempest. I realize that ICP will never be like they were back in the day and I also don't want to be one of these juggalos that just complains that the music "doesn't sound like it used to," because I realize that artists are always going to branch into new territory and experiment with new sounds...

I know ICP has been gettin dissed a bit for this one, but I love it. I love music, all kinds of music, but the psychopathic family tops it all. Some people are saying a few of the tracks are too slow, but I dont think so. Sometimes it just makes them funnier. ICP doing a rock ballad (If I Was A Serial Killer)? Hilarious. I always liked that they could do all types of music and do it well.

I like News At 6'Oclock because its true, Alley Rat cause the bumps are great and its how I feel, Hum Drum Boogie cause I'm a perv, and What About Now? because the beat is just wonderful. I will agree it in not their wickedest, but I've been down with the clowns since Ringmaster dropped, and there has never been a CD I didn't love.

the only reason i gave this cd four stars instead of five is because they keep claiming they are going to have the next wickedest album out only to turn out being happy and cheery.

now that i got that out of my system, i still liked this one a lot. it's not sub par by any means because i liked the majority of all the songs on it (which i can't say for the majority of rap out there at this point. get back to old school rap please) the reason i love listening to ICP stuff is because they tell stories in all their music. no one seems to do that at this point, so that is why i stay down with the clown and proud of it.

i just wish they would stop claiming to be extremely wicked when they only register as freddy kruger scary. so pick this album up, but discard the notion of it being wicked and you will enjoy it much more. oh yeah, and my favorite song off this album is one most juggalos are going to be like WTF, the song Growing Again. it's just hillarious and extreme fantasy and not wicked at all. go figure. the tower is probably the most realistic serial killing song they have done in quite a while.

oh yeah, and as a side note, go ahead and check out the Wraith remix albums. you get both disks in one nice little neat package (like bizzare/bizaare should have been) and most of the mixes ain't half bad. from the way it looked, no one seemed to know about it, so enjoy.

I'm gonna start by saying ICP is growing... Growing older, growing mature, reaching and experimenting with new tunes and effects, yet still keeping a bit of their horrorfying acts and diabolical and mischevious humour along with it. But along the years, their serious lyrics and emotional vibes on everyday life, the world around us, and relating to each and every one of us has been intensified since the early jokers cards. It defineteley shows their becoming more developed and realistic in their approach, and can carry out their humor and dark comic in a broader, attention-grabbing way.

Anymore, I'm seeing more and more of juggalos nowadays, ranging from the typical scuffed up street punks, to ghetto thugs, to people right out of the farmlands, suburbia, and even everyday teenagers and adults who hold respectable jobs. And I think they're doing a damn fine job opening up the carnival doors and creating a unity between people who typically wouldn't have anything in common... in an almost near "Let's Go All The Way" feeling.

And while I feel "The Calm" may have not been their best album, it defineteley was much better than alot of music I hear out there... and it was defineteley a gateway into a promising future. I mean seriously, think about Beverly Kills, Dog Beats, and even Carnival of Carnage... good alblums, but it wasn't until Ring Master, Riddle Box, Milenko, and Jeckel brothers that the music really did take on a unbeleivably gripping and compelling tone and story. So I can see something forming here, and quickly.... another series of masterpieces. For a new era and time.

You have to give them credit for doing it on their own... and what it's done so far, it's done well.

After hearing the sampler, what do you think?
Alright well I agree with Jesse about Hell's Pit personely I liked it but it wasn't to dark. But if you read some of the interviews from you will see that J and Shaggs said that The Tempest will be bringing all 6 jokers cards together. So in my own opinion I Do This(which is about doing... Read More
