Seven Deadly Sins has a lot more edge to it than Ice-T's preceding album, Return of the Real. As a result it's a better effort and has some solid tunes. There's not as much of a mix to the beats though, which is a weakness, but you can play it through without skipping and be quite entertained.
Seven Deadly Sins scores a solid 3 stars:
Common Sense *
Check Your Game*
Ratings: CDs are rated simply by how many good songs are on the album. Great songs get two stars, and good songs get one star. Songs that get no stars are those that I might like but not enough to give it a star or ones I find boring or actively dislike. CDs are not penalized for songs that I don't like because they are easy enough to skip over. There is no maximum number of stars a CD can get, but of course the more stars it gets, the better the CD.
As with all reviews, these are my subjective opinions on the album.
Most of the songs on the album are excellent and "Check your game" with King Tee is one of the dopest Ice-T cuts ever. WHile the album is not up to the dizzy heights of O.G and Home Invasion, it's still an excellent hardcore hip hop album as only Ice-T can deliver.
ICE T ends up sounding like he's trying too hard to compensate for his lack of relevance. ICE -- you once were the undisputed king of "breaking down the game" when you wrote gems like "COLORS" and "PEEL THEIR CAPS BACK." But now you are just another face in the sea of gangsterism with this record -- plus you don't have any of the eye-opening political commentary that make you unique.
On this release, ICE T also sounds like he's trying too hard to overcome his dwindling credibility (anyone remember that bizarre kangaroo suit he wore for the film "Tank Girl"? Unfortunately I do. But pure testosterone and mock-underground vibes can't really undo the damage done.
HOWEVER -- given the fact that I (and many others who appreciate real hip-hop) hold ICE T to a much higher standard due to the fact that he's a living legend -- this album still comes off better than most of the competition! And that is definitely testimate to his success!
Songs like "Always Want to be a H*e" are ruthlessly genious! And the track with the slept-on KING T is seriously bumping.
Get this record-- but be prepared. It's unique in it's own way; it's not essential, but it will grow on you.
