Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2007-12-09 
L.A. sextet blending several pop styles including rap, reggae, jazz, and modern top-40 rock, mostly in a tough-guy commercial package. It's all well accomplished, if a bit slick, and shifts genres multiple times in some songs.

Certain tracks could fit in hip-hop (13) or world (8) shows. Lyrics, whether sung or rapped, often go by REALLY fast; only one FCC detected, but you might test tracks yourself first. Spanish on 3,8, others.

1- High-energy prog rock, melodic and friendly.
2- Mid/fast rock, includes fast/tough rap blips and some breezy melody
3- Spanish rap, punkish "alternative" rock, and straight Mexican horns
4- Echoey downtrodden hip-hop, w/rap & singing. The hit single.
5- Hard-rock ballad. Soft guitar & vocal ends it.
6- Fun fast lyrics vs. afterschool-special moodiness
7- Tough attitude, really fast rapping, wacky jazz break
8- Mexican music: horns, happy beat, Spanish lyrics incl. rap.
9- Warped '60s pop, turns into metal.
10- Funereal choir-like singing, serious spoken word talking life philosophies
11- Superfast jazz singing/rapping, then reggae-like feel-good mellowness.
12- Acoustic indie-pop, sad mood
13- Smooth R&B rap, cool horns, vibes
14- Nerdy acoustic indie pop! Even a bit morose.
15- *FCC* ("shit" 45 secs. in)Happy pop melody!, w/goofy vocals.
16- Sensitive rock tear-jerker.
