Album Review
Mongolian Taco
Reviewed 2006-12-31 
90s NY hip-hop in the sample based Wu and Pete Rock vein. All the songs are great representatives of this style of music. In particular I felt they ripped it on track 4. FCC clean (radio edit). Picks 4,1,6,2.

**1-(3:15) Slow/mid. banging, soulful Wu beat. Nice verses from Masta Killa.
*2-(4:00) Slow/mid. Xzibit's old crew. Menacing gangsta plod. Nice chipmunk vox on the chorus. ft. Planet Asia
3-(3:30) Mid.Late 90s underground style. Mid. Strong Arm Steady ft. Black Market & RA The Rugged Man. RA & others give some hip hop history....eh, lame.
***4-(4:21) Slow, psychedlic/70s TV show harpsichordy keyboards. Fat, smooth bass. Sounds very laidback, gangsta and very cool. Nice hook. Raekwon's flow is ON here, seriously.
5-(3:23) Slow/mid 70s movie soundtrack strings and horns, in a major way. Ghost & Doom tell a story about their own Charlie's Angels.
**6-(3:49) Upbeat. Low horns are the bass. "put your hands in the air" syle hook in a good way. Verses are all on the robbery theme, but in a light way.
