Don't be fooled by the font on the cover, the shadowy artwork and the parental advisory -- this is one of the most important records of the year and should be listened to by any fan of rock, pop, hip-hop, rap or world music.

I heard the first single, "Someday," on Sacramento radio months ago and liked it, but thought that was probably the best Flipsyde could come up with. I was dead wrong. There are at least a half-dozen or more tracks here that are as strong or stronger.

I love Flipsyde's socio-political leanings. In a time when rap and hip-hop seem more about the bling and little about global interaction or social debate, Flipsyde breaks the mold in songs like "U.S. History" and "Happy Birthday." And there is some pretty fine musicianship here, too, and the production is incredible.

Like a great wine that opens up with each sip, this record shares something new with each listen. For good or bad, I even hear elements of U2 and N'sync.

The CD has been in my car deck for the past two weeks, and I just can't seem to take it out. Buy it. Every song is worth at least 99 cents.

I bought this CD off the shelf without knowing a thing about the band. It was labeled as Rock-Alternative which is my typical genre, so I figured I'd give it a go. What I heard when I popped the CD in was not at all what I expected.

What I heard was one of the most interesting and captivating fusions I've heard in a long time. It's hard to pinpoint all of the influences to be heard on this CD, but one thing is for sure -- it KICKS.

The lyrics are intelligent and masterfully delivered, the guitar work is outstanding, and every song is catchy and infectious. It runs the spectrum from hardcore, politically charged rap to uplifting and thought-provoking songs about family, personal accountability, and the state of the world we live in today. In contrast to a lot of music today, this entire CD has a purpose and will definitely draw you in with its many important messages.

Highly recommended for people who like rap, rock, or just generally great music that transcends genre.

When I went to go see the Black Eyed Peas concert, Flipsyde opened up for them. I didn't know what to expect, but it was beyond any expectations I could have had. It is a mix of rap, rock, & latin flavors. Every single song on this album is amazing. Usually on CD's there are a few songs that just aren't as good as others. That is not the case for We the People. All songs are fantastic, but my favorites are "Someday", "Flipsyde", "Trumpets", & "Happy Birthday". Again, I have been so happy with this purchase, it is the best CD I have ever bought.

Hands down my favorite track, which was introduced to me by a friend is U.S. History. WOW, I was and STILL am blown away by that song. It's incredible. A song that puts itself in the first person perspective of an entire country. Going through from its birth as we know it to the present day. Couldn't ask for a better song! I'm not a huge hip hop fan, but after hearing that song I bought this album. It was worth every penny! I love every track on this album. If you're hesitant in buying this album, I'd suggest youtubin' U.S History, then buy it if you feel the same way about the track as I do!

I caught a video of these guys on the Disney channel while watching cartoons with my kids and decided to check them out. After listening to them for about the hundreth time I keep thinking back to all the hoopla about U2's Joshua Tree with it's combination of political and social issues and as far as relevance Flipsyde blows it away both musically and with profound lyrics.How these guys aren't as big as some of the crap that's on radio is beyond me.

Abstract: You will not be disappionted with this album.

Flipsyde had the opportunity to be the iTunes free download of the week sometime last summer, but unfortunatly I missed the chance to find them myself. Only later was I exposed to "Someday" at a friends and was blown away. When "We The People" was released, I was pumped but, honestly, skeptical they could put forth an album as good as "Someday."

I was wrong.

The simple truth is this is by far the catchiest album I've listened to in years. Wether the song is about life, love, history, or (yes) even their mothers, Flipsyde brings their message home in such a unique style it defies words. What truly makes them unique is the latin influence in the guitar, it reminds me of some of my favorite flaminco. Combined with the strong beats by DJ D-Sharp, songs such as "Time" and "Spun" will stay in your head for a while.

My only issue with this disk is the song "US History". Its almost boring for an educated person to listen too, and while it starts strong, the more I listen to it, it feels corny in a sense.

It is a shame that their strongest song in my opinion "Happy Birthday" failed to make the album. I strongly suggest seeking it out on iTunes or some other music service.

With the upcoming press that is sure to surround this Oakland group after their exposure in the 2006 Winter Olympics and on the Jay Leno show, the rest of America will suddenly discover there are alternatives to the current cookie cutter pop.

I'm a fan for life.
