Slightly Stoopid released their debut album in 1996 on Brad Nowells Skunk Records, while the band members were still in high school. A lot has changed in their sound since then. Gone are the "punk" songs that have shown up on more than a couple of their albums.
Top Of The World has a lot of tracks, 21 to be exact. Acoustic guitars, horns, and reggae melodies make up the majority of the songs. There are numerous guest appearances, including Angelo Moore of Fishbone, Chali 2na from Jurassic 5, Barrington Levy, G Love, and my personal favorite Angela Hunte, on the sunny "Mona June".
Other standout tracks for me include the heartfelt "Dont Stop", the danceable, swinging "Ska Diddy", and the catchy "Work.
Both covers are fantastic as well. The first being "Serious Man" originally recorded by Donavon. I probably listened to this track about 6 or 7 times the first time I played the album, I definitely think SS improved this song from its original version. The second cover is a pretty straightforward version of Bruce Springsteens "Im On Fire".
The summer of 2012 is coming to end, but theres still warm days ahead and this record will make a perfect soundtrack to those last trips to the beach, or lazy days by the pool, and at 21 tracks and 7.99??...c'mon.

Glad to have some new chill music. When is comes to relaxing Slightly Stoopid makes the skies a little bluer and the ganja a little sweeter.

I'd like to start off by saying that I'm thrilled that Slightly Stoopid has a fanbase that's so open-minded and willing to accept change. A lot of bands I'm sure would love to be given the same amount of freedom by their fans.

Slightly Stoopid's music has changed pretty dramatically over the course of their albums. All throughout they've attempted to try new things and create different types of songs, maybe even to a fault; their past CDs have jumped from one style to another so many times, most noticeably on Closer to the Sun, that it was even maybe a little jarring. With their last CD, Chronchitis, Slightly Stoopid moved into a much more decisive direction, creating a CD with a very unified sound, and Top of the World continues in that style.

My problem I guess is that I just don't like this sound nearly as much as the band's past stuff. The 5-star reviews show that many other fans love this, and I'm happy for them, but what can I say? I miss the guitars. As with Chronchitis, we see the regular guitar taking a major backseat to the bass and a horn section, giving a lot of Top of the World a jazzy (and at times very funky) sound to it.

Setting aside my personal preferences, there are times here where this jazzy sound works very well. Rhythm Streets and Top of the World (the title track) are two of the CD's highlights, and both are incredible tracks. Devil's Door, Ur Love, and Just Thinking are other cool and funky tracks that had me grooving out. Mona Lisa (or is it Mona June? Whatever it's actually called) is one of the few on here with a strong guitar presense, and it's a chill "love song," while We Don't Wanna Go is nice, and Marijuana's a fun one. There's also a Bruce Springsteen cover (I'm on Fire) which is very atmospheric and well-done.

This album is a must have for Stoopid-heads like myself but it doesn't live up to the standard of Closer to the Sun or Everything You Need. If you've already got all their other stuff, pick this one up. Otherwise pick up "Closer" and "Everything" first.

This is a great album, good positive vibes. My favorite CD of 2012 hands down. The artist combos add a lot of flavor to the 21 TRACK ALBUM, you seriously get your moneys worth!!!

More great tunes from one of the best bands around (also one of the best live bands). Another superb album of feel good music that defines the summer- absolutely love it!

This album is through and through the epitome of Slightly Stoopid. The bass is infectious, the beats are fun, and the style varies from song to song to keep you on your feet. Lots of great guest appearances on an overall well-rounded album. Can't wait to see the new songs live at the Unity Tour!
Keep putting out consistently rocking albums and your fans will keep coming back, Stoopid!
