Bizaar [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Bill Werde
What is it about Detroit that produces such patently inflammatory, yet platinum-popular rockers and rappers? In the grand tradition of their Motor Town forerockers Ted Nugent and the MC5 -- not to mention their Rock City rivals Eminem and Kid Rock -- Insane Clown Posse offer their own outrageous metal-charged rap vision, complete with sexism, unfathomable sexual practices, and boasts that stray from typical rap clichés like women and money. On Halloween 2000, the band released Bizaar and Bizzar -- two distinct CDs, sold separately, that each include packaging perks for ICP fans Juggalos. Bizaar's CD booklet includes "Board Game Bizaar," a crossword puzzle, and something ...

Barnes & Noble - Bill Werde
What is it about Detroit that produces such patently inflammatory, yet platinum-popular rockers and rappers? In the grand tradition of their Motor Town forerockers Ted Nugent and the MC5 -- not to mention their Rock City rivals Eminem and Kid Rock -- Insane Clown Posse offer their own outrageous metal-charged rap vision, complete with sexism, unfathomable sexual practices, and boasts that stray from typical rap clichés like women and money. On Halloween 2000, the band released Bizaar and Bizzar -- two distinct CDs, sold separately, that each include packaging perks for ICP fans Juggalos. Bizaar's CD booklet includes "Board Game Bizaar," a crossword puzzle, and something that resembles ICP Mad-Libs. As for the music, fans and detractors of ICP will get what they expect: bargain-basement beats and over-the-top rants that put a premium on shock value while trying to be as funny as possible in a theater-of-the bizarre-meets-the-WWF sort of way. "Fearless" brags about all that the ICP aren't afraid to do "I'll become pen pals with the Unabomber and let him send me packages / I'll drive an ice cream truck to Ethiopia and talk about 'free ice cream sandwiches!'". "Rainbows & Stuff" details a few of their favorite things ice cream, cherry pie, Nyquil pills, and Hershey Kisses atop a bouncy little beat before the chorus -- "But something tells me that I hate you / Something tells me I must kill you" -- is screamed atop churning guitars. Love 'em or hate 'em, this is one of the most demented packages to come off Detroit's assembly line in some time. Must be something in the water up there.
All Music Guide - Victor W. Valdivia
Released simultaneously with another disc called Bizzar that had similar cover art but completely different tracks, Bizaar is the Insane Clown Posse's attempt to prove that they are not the one-note novelty act they've been labeled. The music, by longtime producer Mike Clark, is actually the best of the band's career, seamlessly fusing metal guitars and shuffling beats. Lyrically, though, the band is still up to the same tricks. Though the ICP make some rather astute lyrical observations from time to time, they still rely too much on sophomoric jokes and shock value. In "Fearless," they rap about various dangerous stunts they can perform to prove their manhood, including asking Michael Jackson's plastic surgeon to do some work on them. "Rainbows and Stuff" is a mean joke, but the singsong verses and deliberately corny lyrics will appeal to the adolescent boy in every listener. Only "The Pendulum's Promise" and "Take Me Away" avoid the wannabe gangsta bluster and misogyny of the other tracks. Of the two albums, Bizaar is the weaker, although, of course, fans will want to have both anyway.
