The Amazing Jeckel Brothers [Explicit Lyrics]

( 8 )

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Jon Dolan
Insane Clown Posse rose to prominence when their first major-label release, THE GREAT MILENKO, was recalled by the record company -- Disney-owned Hollywood Records -- because of its offensive content only six hours after the album's release. Today they're the most frightening hip-hop sensation ever. Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J's misogyny is beyond the pale, and their violent, shock-rap imagery is enough to send shivers running up and down DMX's spine. On their new THE AMAZING JECKEL BROTHERS, the evil clowns drop outlandishly sick rhymes over gangsta tracks featuring cameos by the likes of Ol' Dirty Bastard and Snoop Dogg. From the hate-the-world shout-along "Bring It On" ...

Insane Clown Posse rose to prominence when their first major-label release, THE GREAT MILENKO, was recalled by the record company -- Disney-owned Hollywood Records -- because of its offensive content only six hours after the album's release. Today they're the most frightening hip-hop sensation ever. Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J's misogyny is beyond the pale, and their violent, shock-rap imagery is enough to send shivers running up and down DMX's spine. On their new THE AMAZING JECKEL BROTHERS, the evil clowns drop outlandishly sick rhymes over gangsta tracks featuring cameos by the likes of Ol' Dirty Bastard and Snoop Dogg. From the hate-the-world shout-along "Bring It On" to "Another Love Song," a psycho parody of Beck's "Jack-Ass," this is pretty grim stuff. Still, while lyrics like "I could go back to school instead and try to get my diploma/I'd much rather bang your head on the wall until you fall into a coma," may be offensive enough to inspire fond memories of the kinder, gentler era that bore Andrew Dice Clay, lines like "F*ck skin color/Everybody's blue" suggest that there's at least some real, hardboiled socio-economic angst behind the shtick.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Within every man there is a fight, a struggle between good and evil. Within each man is the ability to create much good or much destruction -- it is up to the individual to decide which path to take. An angel, perhaps named Jake, urges each individual to follow the path of righteousness; a devil, perhaps named Jack, urges everyone to walk the path of darkness. Sadly, Jack and Jake are fat guys in clown makeup. Yes, it's true that the Insane Clown Posse are back with their fifth proper album or, in juggalo parlance, the fifth joker card -- and this time, they have alter egos! And a morality tale to tell! For The Amazing Jeckel Brothers is a full-fledged concept album about the 19 circles of hell and how each man is torn between the juggling balls of goodness and spraying evil soda on paying patrons. Or something. Certainly, the very fact that ICP is writing a concept album illustrates their growing ambition, and the cast of cameos illustrates their changing audience and stature. Where The Great Milenko, the legendary botched major-label debut, was targeted at white-boy, adolescent metalheads -- really, how could any album that contained guest spots from Alice Cooper, Slash, Steve Jones and Legs Diamond be anything else? -- The Amazing Jeckel Brothers contains cameos from Snoop Dogg and Ol' Dirty Bastard, plus a cover of a Geto Boys song, which brings ICP to street level...or at least the street level that gangsta-loving suburban high schoolers love. Still, the harder beats and the slight removal of metallic tendencies give the album a fresher feel, and the concept, however muddled it may be, does give the album real structure and momentum. So, if The Amazing Jeckel Brothers does prove to give the Insane Clown Posse a large audience -- the kind fellow Detroit jesters Eminem and Kid Rock earned in early 1999 -- it won't just because they've hung around long enough or that their peers have paved the way. It will be because they've actually delivered an album that comes close to fulfilling whatever promise their ridiculous, carnivalesque blend of hardcore hip-hop and shock-metal had in the first place. True, The Amazing Jeckel Brothers will still annoy anyone who believes ICP are, for lack of a better word, jackasses, but it will satisfy the juggalos, and the music is clever enough to expand their audience -- a triumph of some sort.

    The most colourful album of them all.

    I'm a bit late in the game to be listening to them all, but this one is second only to The Wraith. I love how it goes from introduction to the end, with the last song being so sweet and gentle. It shows that the clowns have another side to them. Definately a must have for and Juggalo or Juggalette.

    I now have all ICP cd's. This was the first album I listened to by ICP. At first I thought that I would not like ICP but I heaard the Jeckel Brothers cd and loved it. I then proceeded to buy the rest and they are all amazing. Must buy this one. It is funny and has meaning. I can't wait till the release of they release a new one cause I am sure it will be equally as great as the previous ones. I can shamelessly say that I consider myself a Juggalo after listening to these cd's

    People actually listen to this crap?!

    While visting my relatives my cousin talked me into listening to this "music". Who would find this entertaining is mystery. Oh wait, I am forgetting the 14 year old freshmen who still laugh at the "ketchup and liquor" joke. Two losers say the f-bomb 90+ times in a song and we got a bunch of middle schoolers and freshmen saying, "This is the greatest music ever!". Any preteen could have come up with these lyrics and that is exactly who this music is directed at. This is worse than any Rap or Country music combined. If you like people saying F-bomb the world find a nice metal artist who plays an instrument and actually knows why he hates the world and is expressing himself other than trying to make a buck off some adolescent kids. I'll admit the first... line or two may be funny but the same joke over and over and over gets old incredibly fast, and if it dosen't then grow up.
