Muddy Waters [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
Despite a heavy dose of Redman's eccentric humor, Dare Iz a Darkside often threatened to disappear in a haze of blunt smoke, so for his third album, he and producer Erick Sermon backed off the muddled sonics of Darkside and returned to the hard funk of his debut set. There isn't as blatant a P-Funk/Zapp influence on Muddy Waters; the beats are more indebted to the new New York hardcore movement, and the tracks themselves are sparer and more bass-driven. Lyrically, Redman is as strong as ever, and if his subject matter hasn't changed all that much, he's still coming up with clever metaphors and loose, elastic rhyme flows.

He projects more energy than Method Man who appears on "Do What Ya Feel", but isn't quite at the madman level of Busta Rhymes. The numerous skits tend to drag the album's momentum down a little, but overall, Muddy Waters solidifies Redman's growing reputation as one of the most consistent rappers of the '90s -- even when the music is unspectacular, he manages to deliver the goods on the microphone.

    REDMANS BEST ALBUM!

    Redman has been putting it down for a while and he's yet to get the type of recognition he deserves. He's one of the greatest MC's ever, with hardcore delivery and dark, witty lyrics. Muddy Waters is the best of all worlds, with the best lyrics from the funk doc and beats that are parallel with his morbid style. A CLASSIC.

    DOPEST RED ALBUM EVER!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is the most overlooked album of the year 1996. Tracks such as Pick It Up, Do What U Feel, Smoke Buddah, and my personal favorite, Rollin', make for an unpolished, rawed out, rugged third album for Mr. Reggie Noble! A maniacal Masterpiece!
