Under the guise of über-mack Big Willie Keith, Kool Keith has composed an album that is so over-the-top nasty, you might want to handle it with surgical gloves. Sex Style plays like an amateur porn film, and Keith has kindly included explicit samples from adult films that bump ugly against tracks like "Don't Crush It," "Lovely Lady," and "Plastic World." Keith calls the album "pornocore," an experiment in sexual excess that more than delivers on its premise. Expect some very scratchy, woofer-shaking funk that you'll definitely want to roll with. Only problem is, even the hardest listener might feel too embarrassed to blow the nasty vocal drip from this album out of his car speakers. --Todd Levin

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the wild and crazy world of Kool Keith's .... If you're easily offended by choruses that speak on pulling the draws off girls, or representing one's own testicles, then maybe Sex Style isn't in your best interest. If you're looking for an album overflowing with "naked" lyrics, crammed with absurdity, and a dash of emcee criticism, look no further.
From the selective skits, to the enigmatic yet genius wordplay of Kool Keith, back around to Kutmaster Kurt's masterminded production, one can't help but come to the conclusion Sex Style is one hell of an album. Keith takes the listener on an epidemic journey packed with STD's, unprotected sex, pornographic stage shows, groupie festivities, and everything amid in this "Plastic World." Kutmaster Kurt doesn't give as great a show as The Automator's flawless production on Kool Keith's Dr. Octagon, or his own sinister sounds found on Kool Keith's Dr. Dooom, but Sex Style's instrumental value is nothing less than inestimable. Tracks such as Make Up Your Mind and Keep It Real define some very notable highlights of Kurt's career.
Keith's flow is similar to the one that can be found on Ultra's Big Time album, mixed with a hint of lime. Keith's lyrics are witty, the wordplay, pure genius. Patent rhymes can be found throughout the entire album, that only Keith can bring. In all honestly, Kool Keith fan or not, you can't go wrong with Sex Style.

For reference, I am a 30 year old white girl :-) This record would be a great place to start, as an introduction to Kool Keith. I have listened to just about all of his work and think this record is a great example of his style as an artist. Kool Keith is continually pushing the boundaries and always comes up with something that is unique - this record is a great example, I challenge you to find another one like it! On "Sex Style" Keith presents some "pornocore" that is just awesomely ridiculous. He is a true original. All of his personas are interesting but I find this incarnation the most visionary, and true to himself. No wonder he ended up collaborating with other geniuses like Mike Patton (Peeping Tom) and Dan the Automator... he's making music that is real. That's the simplest way to describe it. As far as the songs, they are all catchy and the lyrics are really awesome. The best ones are "Sex Style," "Make up Your Mind," "Sly we Fly," and "Get off my Elevator." But the crowning moment of genius is "Keep it Real.. Represent." There are some lyrics here that are sexual and if that would offend you, then stay away. But if you want to hear some rap that is totally different than anything else out there, you must check this out, it's an underground classic. "alt-rap" if you will... he doesn't always rhyme but his flow belongs only to him. Throw all your ideas about what rap music 'should be' or 'used to be' or whatever, and with an open mind, realize that kool keith doesn't fit any mold, or follow any conventions, and the results are sublime! "Sex Style" remains one of my top favorite records of all time and for anyone looking for something different, just take a chance and give this one a spin., I don't see how you could be disappointed.

Now being a fan of Kool Keith's Dr. Octagonecologyst, you usually find it hard to put this on top of Octagonecologyst, but I just have to do it. It's real good. Awesome album. If you're a Kool Keith and you don't got this, you're missing out probably one of the biggest or the biggest itself, who knows. Kool Keith is still making albums and may just impress us over Sex Style. But, it's hard to see how he can do that if he reaaaaally rocked it and funked heads up...

Pornocore!

Top five MC of all time. The definition of original. If you are a fan of laughing you should get this album, because Keith is the silliest.This is anti depressant music. Sex Style would pretty much stomp on anything that's been on the radio in the last 15 years. But unfortunately like the name of song #6 on Sex Style we live in a Plastic World. This album is a classic, but I think he has 2 albums even better than this. A true master.

The cat has been underated since he was a breakdancer in the early 80's. The beats are more raw than his Dr. Octagon releases. The lyrics are the illest "Make up your mind, who you want to pump the butt?" A must-have for any fan of The Ultramagnetic MC's or Kool Keith.

With all due respect to all the other hip hop/rap artists out there. I know many of you are great. I'm sure of it. But it is what it is. And I won't be able to enjoy or listen to you for another 10 or 20 years. Hip hop has turned into the snake the eats itself. As is the natural progression of things. In 2012 it's boring, it's played out, stagnant. It's all the things hip hop was railing against when it first developed. Unfortunately nothing has come along yet to take its place. And until something does the animosity, the contempt grows as wack MC... wait we can't even call them that, as pop star after pop star comes out and claims to 'keep it real'.

Kool Keith has his cake and eats it too. He is irreverent and respectful at the same time. Half the time it seems like he is making fun of hip hop, bored with it, yet he is a serious artist in the game. He can make fun of his art, yet sit beside his peers like RunDMC, Public Enemy and KRSOne comfortably. His songs sounds fresh 15 years later while songs released 3 months ago are already unlistenable.

Stand out tracks in order: Still the Best, the Mack is Back, Plastic World. Nuf said.
