By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 16, 2003
Format: Audio CD
In 1988, Tone-Loc took the pop music world by storm with his immensely popular track Wild Thing and its even spicier follow-up Funky Cold Medina. While this is not gangsta rap or what many listeners might even call serious rap, it did help introduce rap and hip hop to young people such as myself mired in the sputtering realms of generic Top 40 and classic rock music during the late 1980s. I'm not sure that Tone-Loc's throat is the perfect vehicle for rapping, as he sounds like he has a permanent frog in his throat, yet his laid-back style actually works well with his unique sound. Tone-Loc rapped about things almost all young people have in common, thereby making his music much more accessible than the hardcore rap that has never appealed to me. He did lay down a few lines about how talented and cool he was, but he never carried this to excess, nor did he spend any time tearing down other people in the music industry. There is enough profanity on here to merit the Explicit Lyrics tagline, but the language is really pretty tame over all. In one song, he actually uses the words "One, two, buckle my shoe." Any rapper than can say that and still be both tough and successful is a rare talent indeed.
This album is actually filled with good tracks, achieving success outside of its two main hits. On Fire, Loc'ed After Dark, I Got It Goin' On, and Next Episode all share a similar sound, but each of them is a track you wouldn't want to skip over. Cheeba-Cheeba is a lot of fun to listen to, and the fact that it can be seen as glorifying the smoking of a certain type of plant is not important as long as you don't take the song too seriously. Loc'in on the Shaw is a track I could do without, but the album closes strongly, in my opinion, with Homies.

I grew up on the beginnings of rap. Ice-T, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, UTFO... these groups laid the foundations for what was to come. Approximately 10 years later Ton-Loc comes on the scene when rap was at an all-time low (in my opinion) and dance-music ruled the airwaves. Ton-Loc was different and that's what made him unique amongst all other rap artists. I first heard Ton-Loc's Wild Thing and Funky Cold Medina in '89, my senior year in high school. It wasn't until after I graduated that I heard his whole album. A friend of mine had the tape and I practically wore it out when he left it in my car. A lot of reviewers say they dislike Track 10. Me and a friend of mine were building bass systems in our cars before the car audio market started to take hold. Track 10 was and still is THE song we use to test our systems. It's the benchmark we use to this day. Track 10 was perfect for showing up at a friend's house and "announcing" yourself. In later years I ran it through a bass boost filter and made it even more powerful. Move forward 15 years and I'm still listening to this album. I like most every song except for Cheeba and Homies. You just can't find rap like this anymore because it's all been reduced to cussing and demoralization of others. This whole album is so fleshed out, something you don't find in a lot of debut albums. It's timeless in my opinion. I give this one 5 stars because I never get tired of the songs. The music is clean and crisp and sounds great on a decent system. I'm not a big rap fan anymore since most of the music on the radio nowadays is saturated with different incarnations of it, but albums like this take me back to a simpler time when rap was worth listening to.

If you know Tone Loc, two songs immediately come to mind and they're on this album. But elsewhere on the front side (which shows my age, since I remember when albums had sides), you should discover the title track (which has the same hook as Ice-T's "High Rollers"), "Cutting Rhythms" (which includes a sample of "Band on the Run"), and "I Got It Goin' On."

Want to get your funky on, a little Tone-Loc will get you there. I love that Tone-Loc likes to have fun, lyrics are funny and entertaining, and the music is great to get up and dance to. So drink some Funky Cold Medina, smoke some Cheeba if you wish, and do the Wild Thing!!

This is a very good album period.Great beats to all the songs and tone loc has a very original and good voice.The lyrics are pretty good to and it just makes you relax.I wish modern hip hop would be more like this.I would recommend this to anyone with an interest in quality rap.

Two songs for you old skoolers..."Wild Thing" & "Funky Cold Medina" Now I thought these two songs in that time & era was straight forward. I was wrong. The music in todays society. (2009) Imagine the future music in about 50 years from now. Great c.d. for the older generation music junkies. Buy it before C.D. albums are the thing of the past. When iTunes & MP3 files are the only way we can purcahse music. I want the hard copy!!! (Compact Disc) Not a MP3 or music file that can be deleted that I'll probably end up paying twice for. Get it while it's still a C.D. world!!!

I did some searching and couldn't find this C.D. available for new. I loved listening to this with friends when it first came out. The fun was in the tracks other than the radio hits. It's such a great album, I can't believe it's not still being offered new. If you can get a copy, even used, consider yourself lucky. "Tone-Loc --- you will always be a part of the sound track of MY life!"
