Product Description

White People, the 2nd album from Handsome Boy Modeling School, follows where "So...How's Your Girl?" left off. Bringing together all corners of the musical spectrum: hip-hop, rock, roots, alternative and even jazz, HBMS have put together a seamless cast of players that include: Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington (Linkin Park), RZA, Jack Johnson, Alex Kapronos (Franz Ferdinand), Mars Volta, Pharell and more.

Amazon.com

After a five-year hiatus, superstar producers Prince Paul (De La Soul) and Dan the Automator (Gorillaz) join forces again, assembling an even more eclectic and arguably more rewarding sequel to 1999's So… How's Your Girl? Most producer-based albums suffer from guest overload, and certainly Handsome Boy has a challenge in juggling over 25 different cameos, ranging from Del Tha Funkee Homosapien to Barrington Levy to Pharrell Williams to Cat Power to John Oates to… you get the idea. Yet they thrown down with such creative aplomb that you're just thankful to have a ticket for the ride. The vibe jumps from the soulful slide of "Breakdown" (feat. Jack Johnson) to the high-powered hip-hop of "If It Wasn't for You" (feat. De La Soul and Starchild Excalibur) to the indescribably dense "Rock and Roll (Could Never Hip Hop Like This) Part 2," which includes DJ Qbert, Lord Finesse, and Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda among other guests. There's so much to digest as Paul and Dan stock the album with a wide range of treats, and each listen reveals something new and delightful. --Oliver Wang

I'll admit that I have no idea what all the people who don't like this CD were thinking. I suppose that means that I'm not such a good person to review it. Oh well--here's my position, anyway.

I'm sick of hip hop, and I'd wager that if you're looking at this review, you're probably at least a little sick of it yourself as well. Everything sounds the same and there's little or no thematic differentiation in the mainstream. It's boring. This album is the antithesis of that, which is both good and bad. Let's handle them one at a time.

On the good side, this is really a terrific effort at blending musical formats without paying any particular attention to genre or style. There are hip hop type tracks and there are soul/alternative/rock/whatever tracks, but there aren't a whole lot that stick in the realm of a single genre. In that regard, this CD is much more liberated than its (excellent) predecessor in that it roams far more freely across the musical landscape. Lyrically, on the hip hop side it looks as though the record has taken a step back (is it just me or is Del bored with everything that he doesn't produce these days?), but it's still not bad by any means, and the other contributions on the record (notable tracks--Breakdown and Class System) more than make up for it.

Of course, this feature also doubles as the record's primary downside. If you only like hip hop, you won't like this record. Don't even try it. If you bought Lovage and didn't like it, then you need to be very careful here. This album is a lot of things, but one thing it is not is a pure, direct, singular expression of hip hop. It wanders far too far over the musical map to be confined to that single genre.

Everything about this is perfect..ok a few of the skits could go. The actual songs - those are perfect. From The opening sample of if it wasn't for you, the incredible mike patton song right after.. Amazing piano in class system. I can't get the mars volta song on here out of my head.. The best part is that when mars volta or ..linkin park is on a track..it sounds nothing like their own bands.. Prince paul and dan the automator are badass. I'm ranting.

If as a handsome, yet style-less man, you are finding you need pointers on when to and when not to fart, how to wash yourself, where to wash yourself, how to seize a handkerchief modeling gig, and many other well-needed tips, then White People is for you!

Hip-hop, trip-hop, hip-hopera, old school, new school, whatever, it doesn't apply here, or maybe it all applies here. Enjoy this! Get it! Try not to be encumbered by the need to categorize it. Let this and the first HBMS as well as Lovage, as well as almost anything by Dan Nakamura into your ear-holes, babies! The cowaberation of Nakamura and the extended De La Soul family, Del the Funky Homosapien, and many others is really something to behold.

The celebrity voice-overs by Tim Meadows and Don Novell are great accompaniment. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll feel groovy. Come and get some.

I was introduced into Handsome Boy Modeling School's "White People" shortly after the 2005 release by Gorillaz, "Demon Days". Blending in the talents of 30-some outstanding artists throughout the album's 16 tracks, Handsome Boy Modeling School comes back with an extraordinary album that bends genres (comedy included) and presents you with a aurprising and imaginative musical jewel we are not typically in front of.

Take the intro and the outro, as an example: with the voice of Father Guido Sarducci, you won't be able to keep a straight face. Other examples are the Gorillaz-sounding "The World's Gone Mad", the straight-up R&B piece "I've Been Thinking", or the 7+ minute long piece "Rock And Roll (Could Never Hip Hop Like This)" where Vivaldi's 1st movement of "The Four Seasons" meets hip-hop like you cannot imagine.

The list goes on and on, and so do the pleasant musical surprises. "White People" is more than just for white people. It is quite a gender-bending masterpiece meant to break musical ground for all ages and races.

God I love these two! Together they bring forth brilliant records....I know alot of people who were dissappointed in this, their latest offering but, for the love of all things good, they've put an an album called "White People" and got MIKE PATTON on board! MIKE PATTON!!!!
Once again this duo has created an album that flows from start to finish. Each and every song is original and new. I can't wait for them to do it again.

This album is everything rap has been missing since the days of Digital Underground, old Beastie Boys, and thus forth. Interesting beats that keep the flow well, great story lines, and GREAT Camios...I find this album highly pleasurable to listen to, this is one of those rare albums that i start to listen to and next thing i know it is over!

This album is awesome! It's incredibly diverse and entertaining. Cat Power: wow. That is becoming one of my absolute most favorite songs ever. Other reviewers here seem to be trying to label and pigeonhole this album into a genre, but it shouldn't be about that. It's about good music.
