Unlike many hip-hop CD's out this year, Boac's album can be summed up in one word: Fun. It's not overly serious in addressing current problems, nor is it Boac trying to prove how he'll rip any emcee to shreds. Nothing on this album will change the face of hip-hop, nor will it drop any heavy science on the listener, but it will entertain them if they approach it with an open mind. The album is just fun to listen to, from start to finish, and it is evident that Boac had fun making it. Although he hails from San Fransico, he flows with a heavy Oakland accent, much like Hiero. Production here is nearly seamless (there's a live instrument feel to many tracks), with the use of the Zelda theme song as a nice touch too. Altogether, the album is highly entertaining, especially due to the way that humor is injected into it ("You Are What You Eat", "I've Got Your Phone #"), which diversifies the album. Boac is the first member out of the Earthlings to drop a full legnth on CD, and if this is any indicator of what's to come, this crew might be right up there with left coast collectives like Living Legends or Hieroglyphics.

Yeah, My voice was not perfect at the time, the subject matter was weird. The beats were dope, Bootleg and I had hella fun, sampling everything and anything, from The Turtles to Star Wars, never worring about getting sued for clearing samples. I never thought that it would resonate with some people the way it did. I'm proud of that. I've been rapping for 20 years now, and I'm finally making the music I always thought I could make in the future. If you enjoyed this album, Hell, if you hated this album, stop by: [...] to hear me rhyme to my full potential.

I bought this album 6 years ago based off of a suggestion from a cashier's suggestion (it was $6 used, not $50!!). I sold it to Rasputin's a few year later, not knowing how much I would miss it........but enough about me. This is a very well-constructed album and BOAC has this voice...it's kinda high-pitched, but not in a bad way, kinda like Qwel or Eyedea. Intelligent, white rappers are what I tend to follow and here I am, following BOAC. Cop it. Bet. Oh wait....the only copy for sale is $50. Yah, don't do that. Cop it elsewhere and then review it here.

LOST MY FIRST ALBUM AND HAD TO BUY IT AGAIN. I LOVE THIS ALBUM. THE BEATS ARE SOME OF THE MOST GENIUS BEATS IVE EVER HEARD. BOAC'S RHYMS ARE TO COMPLEXED TO WERE SOME WILL GET LOST AND HIS VOICE GETS ANOYING BUT THE PRODUCTION IS THE GLUE THAT HOLDS WHOLE ALBUM TOGETHER. THIS PROJECT WAS ONE OF THE PIONEERS FOR WEST COAST UNDERGROUND RAP, ALONG WITH FREESTYLE FELLOWSHIP, MYSTIK JOURNEYMEN, HIERO, ECT. THE UNDERGROUND CLASSIC (TRACK 10) THE ZELDA SONG IS THE BEST SONG WITH THE FLAWLESS PRODUCT BY BOOTLEG. IF YOU HAVENT HEARD THIS ALBUM DONT SLEEP!
