Album Review

Terror Squad spends much of their eponymous debut trading in gangsta clichés -- it only seems like there's been a hundred songs called "Pass the Glock" -- but beneath those rehashed themes lay some clever rhymes and music. Fat Joe and Big Punisher lead the group, which contains such promising rappers as Prospect and Cuban Link. The two established rappers often take a back seat, letting the other four members showcase their talents. All six members are very talented and their skills are enhanced by the productions, which are not only funky but show some imagination. It would have been nice if there was a little more imagination behind the lyrics, but the record itself is a good, solid effort that's better than many of hardcore rap efforts in recent memory.
