Editorial Reviews

Like Fatboy Slim, Asian Dub Foundation, and even Definition of Sound (who show up on "Here We Go," We Rock Hard's anthem), the Freestylers are creatures of the club scene. Their live show is DJ-oriented but involves dancers and rappers; on their debut album, the Freestylers endeavor to layer their music with history (the opening track samples not one but three Public Enemy tracks), big beats, and funky melodies--if they can help it, you're not going to stop dancing for a second. Working with guest MCs keeps the tracks fresh, but if you're not an aficionado of the scene the Freestylers come out of, you might not notice; there's diversity here, but it's subtle. Ultimately, the album falls into a ghetto: it's not quite obvious enough for the casual fan, but it's nowhere near out-there enough for serious crate diggers; fortunately, there are plenty of people who enjoy the middle ground. If you're one, then We Rock Hard is for you. --Randy Silver

5.0 out of 5 stars Here we go on a ride... March 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The tracklisting on my album is slightly different from this one but it's the closest I can find - mine doesn't have "Spaced Invader" or "Check The Skillz" but has "Breaker Beats Part 2". That said, those two tracks would make the album rate above 5 stars (I've heard them both and have them as MP3s).
I first heard the Freestylers by way of their amazing single "B Boy Stance". Having heard "Ruffneck" and "Here We Go" in the weeks after, I had to get the album.
This is definitely not the sort of album to be enjoyed by yourself in your room - best setting for this would be in a club or at a huge party (I say this because the night before writing this I played "Ruffneck" at a friend's party and the joint went off).
A lot of people who I've recommended this album to have declared that they aren't much for techno/rap/breakdancing or whatever else - and yet after hearing "B Boy Stance" or "Ruffneck" they're usually trying to work out where they can pick up a copy. That's what this CD will do to you.
It isn't so much rapping in the vocals as it is that marvellously unintelligible dancehall that is almost everywhere these days. Tenor Fly and Navigator contribute two tracks each of top notch toasting (Tenor Fly excelling himself everywhere and Navigator delivering his better performance on "Ruffneck"). Definition Of Sound - a little-known hip-hop group perform on "Here We Go", a track which effortlessly recreates the spontaneity and tag-team freestyling of the early hip-hop culture.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice c.d. with great music, but it gets repetitive. August 19, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This music is awesome.Fatboy Slim and the Chemical brothers were using many tracks from this album.My favorite tracks on the c.d. were b-boyz stance and here we go,mainly because the other tracks were all very repetitive.that brings up the thing that kills the c.d.:there are three songs that are over SEVEN MINUTES LONG!I know a lot of people who can't stand listening to the same beat over and over again. Bottom line: If you're willing to put up with several long tracks and like dance beats, this is a good c.d. choice for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phunky Soundz January 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
One word - awsome. Lot of good breakbeats, scratches, and dance mixes. Buy it whether you like to listen to some funky soundz or you're a DJ who likes to rock the dance floor. A big blus is that it comes in vinyl, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Whole CD was GREAT! January 25, 2002
Format:Audio CD
It's rare that you find a CD where you like every song on it. This CD was one of those CD's. The first time I heard one of the songs was when I was in California about two years ago. I'm pretty sure it was "Here We Go". I couldn't find the CD anywhere so I just gave up on it until I watched "Dude, Where's My Car" a few months ago and I heard the song. So I bought the soundtrack and was disappointed not to find it (still a good CD though). Being lazy I just looked up the Freestylers on Kazaa and burned two awesome songs from the Freestylers and I was like like whatever, these songs are so awesome I have to buy the CD. I finally found it and now I love it. Even my least favorite song on the CD I've grown to like. They definitely deserve five stars.
P.S. I'm listening to the CD right now, keep making these phat songs and I'll keep buyin' them.

5.0 out of 5 stars BLOWN AWAY-COMPLETELY BLOWN AWAY July 17, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"We Rock Hard" is one of the best cd's ever made, let alone electronica cd's. People who aren't even fans of the genre would find themselves dancing to this massive trance-techno trip. The vocals are truly quality, with more than just the common mixing. The lead singer has some really trippy vocal rhymes and rhythms, and tops it off with a reggae accent. The songs as a whole don't just have a cool beat, they also have harmonic tones and chords that fit like a glove. Everyone and their gramma should have this... Freestylers are a trip.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bit short of a masterpiece, but...... September 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD
When "Don't Stop" was released as a single it really stood out as something different on dance-type radio. Not downloading any of the tracks, I took a chance and dropped the $ to see if the rest of the album (by an unknown band to me) could hold up as well. I wasn't disappointed. The album is not a cover to cover masterpiece, but it is a great piece of work. It falls short on a couple of filler tracks, but definatley worth the investment.
