Bizzar [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.

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. Bizzar's CD booklet includes a Bizzar word search, maze and a graphically violent crossword puzzle. The album opens with a dramatic, newscast-styled homage to the Dark Carnival, the deity that ICP say direct their energies, before unfolding into the sort of simplistic-but-catchy beats and scatological, violent, and humorous rhymes they are known for. "Mr. Happy" is a glib ode to murder "I don't use a chainsaw or a butcher knife / That's so '90s. Get it right", and "Radio Stars" lashes out at all the underground bands that compromise to become stars. The pièce de résistance is their remake of Sly Fox's '80s hit, "Let's Go All the Way" -- now that's shock value everyone can appreciate.
All Music Guide
The companion piece to the simultaneously released Bizaar, Bizzar contains some of the best backing tracks of the ICP's career, courtesy of producer Mike Clark, as well as some of their most ambitious attempts at lyrical profundity. The ICP's reach still exceeds their grasp, but on the likes of the bluesy, almost ambient "Crystal Ball," they actually have lyrics that don't wallow in macho teenage rebellion. Their flow has improved greatly though they are still miles away from master rappers such as Chuck D and they have lessened their need to yell constantly. In fact, the band members truly live up to the clown part of their personas in such moments as their hilarious, dead-on DMX and Lit parodies in "Radio Star." The album's weakest track, however, is their most blatant attempt at radio play: a cover of the 1986 Slyfox hit "Let's Go All the Way" with slightly rewritten lyrics. It's even more irritating than such standard fare as "Let a Killa," which, for all its tired sexual hostility, seems less contrived. Bizzar
