Overview

Straight outta the Bahamas, the Baha Men leaped to the top of the U.S. charts in 2000 with the Grammy-winning single "Who Let the Dogs Out?," which radiated island sunshine throughout clubs and ballparks across the country. But these pups were partying long before they posed the canine question, a point they aim to prove with this reissue. Originally released in 1999 only in Japan, 2 Zero 0-0 was the original home to the single "You All Dat" (also included on Who Let the Dogs Out?), a groovy little number that borrowed from the doo-wop classic "The Lion Sleeps Tonight (Wimoweh)" but is retrofitted with DJ scratching and a soulful chorus. Other island-spiced dance-floor essentials include "Keep on Dancin' " and "She Shake It," while the Men explore their soulful side on "Hooked on a Feeling" and the reflective "2 Zero 0-0."

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Kerry L. Smith
Following the phenomenon of their 2000 radio-friendly hit single, "Who Let the Dogs Out," the Baha Men have returned with an album of upbeat tracks rife with that tropical island feel and pure Bahamian junkanoo energy. The 2001 release 2-Zero-0-0 is a collection of rhythmic tunes that are a combination of traditional Bahamian junkanoo beats and pop hooks. The opening track is a smooth cover of Blue Swede's 1974 hit song "Hooked on a Feelin'," which became a cult classic in the '90s when it was remixed (and nicknamed the "ooga chaka" mix) and soon became a dancefloor phenomenon. The Baha Men strut their Bahamian junkanoo talents on the fast-paced jungle track "Keep on Dancin'," and the snazzy horns and quick, snappy beats are sure to keep booties shakin' at an island party. Brief interludes of the popular song "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" break up the fun track "You All Dat," a groovy song in which the Baha Men sing in rap-like vocal style about partying. The most poppy track on the album is the title track, an upbeat island song that mixes a catchy chorus with undulating vocals and an explosive ending. The Baha Men reveal their penchant for making dance music with the heavy, house-like beats and vibrating background vocals on "Carnival." From the flirtatious, sexy vocals on "Watcha Sef" to the funky piano parts on "Back to the Island (Part 2)," 2-Zero-0-0 is a fun dance album that will get your maracas shakin'.
