Editorial Reviews

Review

In the packed confines of clubs around their hometown of Chicago and throughout the world The Cool Kids' irresistible, hooky rhymes and club cramming beats seamlessly bridge the old and new schools of hip hop while assuring them a sure-fire path to world-wide attention. In their short amount of time as a duo The Cool Kids have been featured in Rolling Stone, XXL, The Source, Spin, Paper Magazine, CBS News, The New Yorker, The Fader, and on the cover of The Urb. But earlier this year, the hip-hop duo of Mikey Rocks and Chuck Inglish signed up with the Mountain Dew-sponsored Green Label Sound. The beverage-flavored label helped them drop a few singles throughout the years, including 2008's Delivery Man and this year's Bundle Up The 14-track effort features collaborations with Travis Barker, Bun B, Ghostface Killah, and Asher Roth, as well as production credit for Pharrell Williams on the track Summer Jam. CD includes bonus tracks not included on the digital album! --editorial review

In their short amount of time as a duo The Cool Kids have been featured in Rolling Stone, XXL, The Source, Spin, Paper Magazine, CBS News, The New Yorker, The Fader, and on the cover of The Urb. The long awaited debut full length is here! The 14-track effort features collaborations with Travis Barker, Bun B, Ghostface Killah, Mayer Hawthorne Asher Roth, as well as production credit for Pharrell Williams on the track Summer Jam .

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing to complain about January 14, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album was obviously highly anticipated by the indie rap community as 'The Bake Sale' was such a phenomenal album and we haven't seen much from Cool Kids since then. I have to say that this album didn't disappoint. It maintains everything I loved about 'The Bake Sale' in the simple bass lines and smooth, flowing, creative lyrics. Their unique style is maintained in this album and the addition of a variety of other rappers give the album some diversity which helps the album be listenable straight through without too much repetition.

Negatives include what I think is over-use of the synth hits in many of the tracks that are a little distracting at times. I think it is unfair to judge the album based on the 'selling out to Mountain Dew' situation. If you are only coming out with a quality album ever 5 years or so, you have to capitalize in a competitive and difficult industry that is music.

Bottom line, if you liked their old stuff, go ahead and pick this up. You won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 stars vast improvement & growth October 21, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I thought this album would sound mostly like their ep "The Baked Sale" or their mixtapes. But the beats sound very Mello and the lyrics sound much improved. I loved Asher Roth's verse on "Roll Call" he absolutely posesses the best verse on this album, I actually think Asher Roth & Chuck English (1/2 of Cool Kids, the half that produces) share a great chemistry together somthing I notice on "Fat Raps Remix" from Big Sean's Finally Famous Vol. 3. But anyway the Cool Kids make feel good music & swag rap, and they do it with high efficency. One bad thing about this album is that when you listen Sir Michael Rocks two Mixtapes this year you realize Mikkey dumbs hisself down for Chuck's beats but that leads me to another conclusion Chuck english is the third best rapper from detroit currently & one of the best producer/rappers out right now as he absolutely beast his own beats. Two best rappers from the "D" of course are Eminem (who's regressing) & Elzhi but Chuck deserves reconigtion most defenitely. The Cool Kids obvisously have the respect of their peers as Ghostface Killah(wu co-signs mean alot),Pharrell (Star Trak co-signs mean alot too ask Big Sean OR Kelis) & Bun B appear on this album. "Penny Hardaway" is one of my favorite songs this year too, The beat sounds different from most of Chuck's past synth heavy beats & Ghost Kills his spot. Being from Chicago I thought that the group PROJECT MAYHEM, whom the cool kids work with were more deserving of the spot light but the Cool Kids hold their own and since the world sees them as a Chicago group I say they did the city proud. Chuck english's persona is in the mold of raekwon circa 94' when everyone was stealing rae's style & swagger. He alone is the reason this album needs it's just due, listening to "Summer Jam" off this album thinking sky's the limit for both these young men if they keep maturing.

4.0 out of 5 stars RapConQueso.com Review October 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Full review is available at [...] but to summarize:

When Fish Ride Bicycles is a really good album. Of course, it has that heavy bass, '88 style we heard on Bake Sale, but it's apparent that Pharrell (or The Neptunes) had a hand in this album. And that is a GOOD thing!

1.0 out of 5 stars The Cool Kids - When Fish Ride Biicycles October 17, 2011
By 808SAD
Format:Audio CD
Good production value and some of the beats you can't help but move your head in agreement. All in all the lyrical content is what ruined this album for me... step ya game up!
