Loud Rocks [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
If you want to raise the kind of ruckus that'll really tick off the most people possible, it's best to recruit as much help as possible -- and that seems to be the philosophy behind this genre-bending, roof-raising collection. The idea -- combining the edgiest hip-hop minds of the day with the most anti-social hard rockers around -- isn't exactly a new one, but the glee with which the obnoxious goals are pursued is hard to top. From the opening notes of "Shame" which splices the ghetto artsiness of Wu-Tang Clan with the left-field meandering of System of a Down through the grinding "Still Not a Player" a posthumous meeting between the late, great Big Pun and thud-rock ...

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
If you want to raise the kind of ruckus that'll really tick off the most people possible, it's best to recruit as much help as possible -- and that seems to be the philosophy behind this genre-bending, roof-raising collection. The idea -- combining the edgiest hip-hop minds of the day with the most anti-social hard rockers around -- isn't exactly a new one, but the glee with which the obnoxious goals are pursued is hard to top. From the opening notes of "Shame" which splices the ghetto artsiness of Wu-Tang Clan with the left-field meandering of System of a Down through the grinding "Still Not a Player" a posthumous meeting between the late, great Big Pun and thud-rock experts Incubus, Loud Rocks is rife with both heads-up innovation and heads-down boogie. While some of the collaborations are a bit less fruitful -- Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi don't mesh very well with the Wu-Tang thump laid down on "For Heaven's Sake" -- the album's 13 tracks succeed, by and large, by virtue of attitude alone. As such, Everlast and Mobb Deep slink along craftily on the low-slung "Shook Ones Part II," while Dead Prez slips gracefully into the harsh atmospheres Static-X throw down on the mission statement "Hip Hop." A bit more variety would have been welcome -- Big Pun, Wu-Tang, and Mobb Deep show up on more than half of the set's tunes -- but overall, Loud Rocks succeeds in its attempts to break down some walls and basically raise hell in the process.
All Music Guide - Steve Huey
Loud Rocks is a collection of songs by rap acts on the Loud label -- most prominently the Wu-Tang Clan, but also Tha Alkaholiks, Xzibit, Mobb Deep, Big Punisher, and Dead Prez -- who've been paired up with popular hard rock and heavy metal artists à la the Judgment Night soundtrack. Most of the latter group comes from the alternative-metal world (System of a Down, Incubus, and Sevendust, most notably), but there are a few acts already fusing rap with rock (Shootyz Groove, Everlast), some veterans (Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Sick of It All), and a poppier collaboration between Tha Alkaholiks and Sugar Ray. Like most projects of this nature, not everything hits the mark -- some pairings feel forced and a few lack that spark of collaborative interplay -- but the overall quality of the Loud roster ensures that most of what's here is at least listenable. And a lot of it is much better than that, some tracks offering new interpretations of old songs, others presenting a surprising range of distinctive approaches to the rap-rock form. It isn't without flaws, but overall, Loud Rocks is pretty successful.
Entertainment Weekly - David Browne
Two unstoppable music fronts -- rap and metal -- collide on Loud Rocks. And the result is freakishly good.
