Slightly Stoopid released their debut album in 1996 on Brad Nowells Skunk Records, while the band members were still in high school. A lot has changed in their sound since then. Gone are the "punk" songs that have shown up on more than a couple of their albums.
Top Of The World has a lot of tracks, 21 to be exact. Acoustic guitars, horns, and reggae melodies make up the majority of the songs. There are numerous guest appearances, including Angelo Moore of Fishbone, Chali 2na from Jurassic 5, Barrington Levy, G Love, and my personal favorite Angela Hunte, on the sunny "Mona June".
Other standout tracks for me include the heartfelt "Dont Stop", the danceable, swinging "Ska Diddy", and the catchy "Work.
Both covers are fantastic as well. The first being "Serious Man" originally recorded by Donavon. I probably listened to this track about 6 or 7 times the first time I played the album, I definitely think SS improved this song from its original version. The second cover is a pretty straightforward version of Bruce Springsteens "Im On Fire".
The summer of 2012 is coming to end, but theres still warm days ahead and this record will make a perfect soundtrack to those last trips to the beach, or lazy days by the pool, and at 21 tracks and 7.99??...c'mon.

By A Reviewer on September 24, 2012
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I'd like to start off by saying that I'm thrilled that Slightly Stoopid has a fanbase that's so open-minded and willing to accept change. A lot of bands I'm sure would love to be given the same amount of freedom by their fans.

Slightly Stoopid's music has changed pretty dramatically over the course of their albums. All throughout they've attempted to try new things and create different types of songs, maybe even to a fault; their past CDs have jumped from one style to another so many times, most noticeably on Closer to the Sun, that it was even maybe a little jarring. With their last CD, Chronchitis, Slightly Stoopid moved into a much more decisive direction, creating a CD with a very unified sound, and Top of the World continues in that style.

My problem I guess is that I just don't like this sound nearly as much as the band's past stuff. The 5-star reviews show that many other fans love this, and I'm happy for them, but what can I say? I miss the guitars. As with Chronchitis, we see the regular guitar taking a major backseat to the bass and a horn section, giving a lot of Top of the World a jazzy (and at times very funky) sound to it.

Setting aside my personal preferences, there are times here where this jazzy sound works very well. Rhythm Streets and Top of the World (the title track) are two of the CD's highlights, and both are incredible tracks. Devil's Door, Ur Love, and Just Thinking are other cool and funky tracks that had me grooving out. Mona Lisa (or is it Mona June? Whatever it's actually called) is one of the few on here with a strong guitar presense, and it's a chill "love song," while We Don't Wanna Go is nice, and Marijuana's a fun one. There's also a Bruce Springsteen cover (I'm on Fire) which is very atmospheric and well-done.

Glad to have some new chill music. When is comes to relaxing Slightly Stoopid makes the skies a little bluer and the ganja a little sweeter.

This album is a must have for Stoopid-heads like myself but it doesn't live up to the standard of Closer to the Sun or Everything You Need. If you've already got all their other stuff, pick this one up. Otherwise pick up "Closer" and "Everything" first.

I love this album! It is the first album I ever owned one by these guys. Every song I can feel. Everyone should find something to relate to. It is just a great mix reggae and rock. It can bump at times. I mean from the beginning to end it just all awesome! The artwork is another reason to won this. Mine came with a holographic print of the art work. Inside and out it's so cool. Nice to cook to, drive, ride a bike, or just chill with some sangria or something like that. It makes me, feel like going to the beach, smoking some of you know what, and eating my organic food! Lol.

I love Stoopid but this album was a bit of a disappointment. The songs just arent THAT good. Alot more horns than usual. Closer to the Sun blows this away. That being said, its still better than most of the crap out there. Blaze.

This band has been through seven studio CD's and this is their best. I've been listening to these guys for only about a year, but this album has the most truly reggae-style music. The songs I really like are as follows: Top of the World, Don't Stop, Devil's Door, Serious Man, Way You Move, Drink Professionally, Ska Diddy, Just Thinking, Pon the Horizon, Work, Mona June, Hiphoppablues, and Underneath the Pressure. Ska Diddy and Underneath the Pressure are very catchy ska songs,especially Underneath the Pressure. The album starts off strong with Top of the World and Don't Stop. Those two songs are brilliant. Then, a very good remake of Devil's Door that pretty much blew me away. They had previously recorded it on one of their live albums and this version is just awesome. Next is Serious Man, which is very catchy and reggae. Way You Move is a good song, has a good beat to it. Drink Professionally is another reggae song about drinking. Pon the Horizon is a very musically-layered song with such an awesome feel to it. All these songs have incredible musical depth. Work sounds a lot like the other reggae songs, but it has Miles singing at some point during the song. Mona June was a great "love" song featuring Angela Hunte. Great atmosphere on this song. Hiphoppablues has a blues feel to it with harmonicas and Kyle singing about being lonely or something like that.

Those are just the songs I really liked. There was UR Love featuring Barrington Levy that was a decent song, but just not for me. There's a few others that I really haven't taken the time to listen to much, like Rhythm Streets and I'm On Fire. I'm not much of a fan of that song, so I don't care to listen to it. It sounded good, though. Overall, this album is the peak of their success thus far.
