Super 8

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
Known for his work with Everlast and others who have been associated with Ice-T's Rhyme Syndicate operation, Bob Khalil, aka Bronx Style Bob, is generally considered a West Coast hip-hopper. But in fact, some of his work has been outside of hip-hop altogether. You won't hear a trace of hip-hop influence on this debut album by Super 8, an L.A. band that Bronx Style sang lead for in the '90s.

Though some of the songs are fairly psychedelia-influenced especially "Railroad" and "Going Nowhere", no one will mistake this CD for a late-'60s or early-'70s recording--Rick Parashar's production techniques are very '90s, and John O'Brien's guitar playing has '90s alternative rock written all over it. A generally decent and sometimes excellent illustration of Bob's ability to function outside of a hip-hop setting, Super 8 should have done well. But unfortunately, the CD fell through the cracks.
