This is good pop music!,
This review is from: Elephunk (Audio CD)
The BEP's hit you with their 7.5 million copy internationally sold album elephunk and you wonder why they get called sellouts. From the nba playoffs to The sims to best buy to the movie Be Cool to the movie garfield to even cartoon network you will see the black eyed peas to the radio waves to being on tour with N.E.R.D to now gwen stefani to the music video channels the BEP's are all over the place. Now are the BEP's really talented or is this just one big marketing ploy?Well i am here to tell you that the BEP's hit you with catchy hooks, good beats, semi-vulgar rhymes and catchy song titles.To put it in lament terms the BEP's are good at making commercial songs which is POP music.And by adding in that hot chick fergie the BEP's really reach a mainstream audience which is mostly horny guys or teenage girls who want to look like fergie.
Here is a quick review of the songs on elephunk.
1-Hands up-Very catchy, the hip hop beat is very good and the rhymes can be stuck in your head for days and that can be good or bad.
2-labor day-This song is bascially just being happy you have a three day weekend and feeling like celebrating.
3-lets get retarded-Its quirky, catchy, and offensive to the mentally disabled. And its a formula for success!.
4-hey mama-now parents this is not the version in the garfield movie, this one has the S-word fly around about ten times and a vulgar way to describe womens breasts...but its so damn catchy!
5-shut up-Fergie steals the show on this track, as her vocals simple hynotize you and you will have the words "shut up" stuck in your head all day.
6-smells like funk-this song the BEP's compare their funk style music to being funky as socks, armpits, and skunks.......me personally i hate this song.
7-latin girls-The guys of BEP share their love they have for.........a duh latin girls. It has a very nice salsa breakdown towards the end.
8-sexy-YUP this is the song featured in the movie "Be cool" when UMA T and john T are dancing in the ballroom. Very sexy, very jazzy and if you have a mate pop this song in, light some candles, sprinkle a trail of flowers and get it on.(just make sure you keep the song on repeat)
9-fly away-This song is for the guys---A fergie solo-our favorite over maked-up girls gets her own song..nice beat but what the hell does flying away have to do with sitting in the back of the bus??listen to the song and you will know what i am talking about.
10-the boogie that be-nice beat, nothing special and for the parents the F-word flys one time.
11-the apl song-a apl.de.ap solo he talks about growing up in the phillapens(sp?)for some reason when i hear this song i think of the tsunami victims...RIP
12-anxiety-this song has our favorite MTV band papa roach singing along with the BEP's about anxiety..nice guitar riffs, if you do not like rock you probably wont stand this
13-where is the love?you know this song with justin timberlake about world peace and bla bla bla.
Bonus track-lets get it started-After 1000 times hearing this song on the radio do you really want to pump in 1000 more?
And the hidden track-third eye-its okay...........
So i have told you what you needed to be told....now make you decision......
