Despite the incredible creativity of hip hop, its ability to throw up new styles, to morph and reinvent itself, it's not every day that something genuinely fresh drops in front of you.Welcome, then, to "YoYoYoYoYo," the debut album from Spank Rock. Drawing on the music of their hometown, Baltimore, Spank Rock make something genuinely unlike any record you've heard before. Of course there are antecedents, but at just under forty two minutes, Spank Rock have managed to reconfigure the musical landscape around them by being funny, catchy, clever, fearless and most of all, innovative.

All the music is way catchy. Think of it like a mash up of M.I.A. (without all the political-charged lyricism) and the nastiest house hip hoppers around and you have something close to Spank Rock. The bass will serve you well here. It's off the charts boi!!
Tracks like track 6, "Bump," lands you squarely in Gorillaz teritorry. But whereas the Gorillaz are arty and the lyrics are intelligent with Spank Rock you don't have to think, shut that mind off, and groove my friend. Get the bootie shakin' boi!!! There's no way you can't dance to this. You'll jump up right outta your chair, like I'm doing now, and impersonate Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder. It's that good, boi!!!
At about the 3 minute point in track 6, there's a female rapper featured. Who really knows who she is but she's darned good, boi!!! She takes over like Lil' Kim or Missy and brings down the house, boi! It's a album highlight but don't take my word for it, listen to it your danged self! But hail my words homey, if you are adverse to language of the gutter variety, stay away from this. K, Moms and Pops? Peace out. ...mmw
The production is out of this world! The Baltimore club influence is strong, but with a funk and edge all its own. This album is in my top 5 all time, namely because it took me by surprise. Even those who don't generally like hiphop can appreciate this new genre that Spank Rock is creating, a electro-indie-rap-mash up. You could say that a fan of Girl Talk could easily transition to Spank Rock. Then maybe move on to Plastic Little.
