Overview

Integrated as a significant part of Ludacris' Disturbing tha Peace collective, signaled by the Luda and Jamie Foxx-assisted hit "Georgia" (reprised here), Field Mob has a considerable amount of momentum (as well as a new label) behind them as they release Light Poles and Pine Trees, their third album. Everything is in place for the duo to gain far more exposure than before, and they answer the call with another set that displays their flexibility -- from the poignant and funny "Blacker the Berry" (Luda is absolutely correct that Shawn Jay and Smoke are two of the best lyricists around) to the playful and party-ready "At the Park." Pre-album single "So What," featuring a hook from Ciara, is even softer than the duo's 2002 hit "Sick of Being Lonely" and has "unavoidable summer hit" written all over it, in spite of its melancholy character (and yet more of producer Jazze Pha's gratuitous vocal stamping). A couple tracks in particular -- "Baby Bend Over," an obvious stab at striking platinum with sleazy whispering over a sparse production, as well as the Kelis-quoting "I Hate You," featuring the disruptive lead singer of DTP resident rockers Lazyeye -- prevent Light Poles from topping the duo's first two albums. (These miscues are especially frustrating since the hot "Friday Night" was, for whatever reason, left off the album.) Even with its considerable flaws, the album proves that Field Mob is one of the South's finest and most unique acts.

Editorial Reviews

Boston Globe - Ken Capobianco
They drop sharp, witty rhymes over rowdy, tumultuous tracks that are geared toward getting the party started and keeping it going until dawn.
Los Angeles Times - Soren Baker
The group's energetic and entertaining third album...continues its stellar track record.
The Guardian - Dorian Lynskey
Their more eccentric material is funny and endearing.
