Title - ‘Blackout’ (Jive)
Artist - (hed) Planet Earth
When I first bought Hed P.E.'s sophomore album Broke, I was blown away. But after awhile I started noticing all the songs had one thing in common. They didn’t steer too far from only talking about certain things. In the middle of a lot of music breaks in the song, MCUD would just start talking about alcohol and drugs. Now, I don’t have a problem with that, but it just gets old hearing it over and over. They kept on a certain path with what their songs meant, if they meant anything at all. Now, I am not saying it was a bad album, but I will say I was a lot more impressed when I heard Blackout. From the first time I listened to the whole CD, I noticed each song had it's own meaning, instead of mixing with the rest. They also did a pretty good job of not losing the Hed P.E. signature style. They got a lot more creative with their music also while keeping the hard core rap metal. They’ve also ventured into more melodic things as an added bonus!
