Overview

It's an album that ushered in an era of a thousand suburbanites drinking malt liquor, wearing U.S. Postal Service caps, and reawakening their Irish (or in some cases pseudo-Irish) heritage. And it's also the debut album that ushered House of Pain into the forefront of rap culture for a brief period of time. While it's unfair to expect a whole album's worth of quality material like the dynamite classic "Jump Around," there are some strong points on their eponymous debut that emulate the single's strength. Admittedly, there is a significant amount of filler and the topics du jour aren't exactly the most original in hip-hop, but the impact of such songs as "Jump Around," "Shamrocks and Shenanigans," and "Put on Your Shit Kickers" more than makes up for the filler. A debut for a group that showed immense promise that sadly wasn't fully realized.

These guys are bad. They represent Irish heritage and have excellent lyrics. Not to mention the classic 'Jump Around.' This is a must buy for all those old school rap fans or anyone!

This is a strange mix of music. In one song he'll use swear words and all, but in other song he'll say things like "praise the Lord". I thought it was a great CD. I didn't make it all the way through, as there are 19 tracks on it, but I managed to clear through around 13 or 14 tracks. Most music today isn't my style, but this was a good mix of music. Pity they didnt have a better career as a group.
