I once read a review of a soundtrack featuring an L.B. song which said that if you wanted to know what that song sounded like you should go pick up any of their albums and play any cut, implying that it's impossible to discern one L.B. song from another. Well, I won't go that far, but I will say that you either like this group or you don't. You know what you're getting before track number one even starts to spin. In this respect, they're similar to say Gangstarr, or A Tribe Called Quest, you either want to by their albums or you don't. And while singles such as "Summer Time" and "Me & My Crazy World" may be more radio friendly, don't be fooled the Lost Boyz are unchanged as ever. For my part, though, I've never found the Lost Boyz too much the cats meow.
Over all the sound quality of this album is good and its production relatively tight. It's just that I personally have never loved this band. Honestly, there's actually little to complain about on this album, still there just doesn't seem to be too much to recommend either. Spin the wheel if you dare.
