The Amazing Jeckel Brothersby Insane Clown Posse
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.

F The World is the best song i have ever listined to in my life it is sooooo cool and it is funny too. Any ICP fan must do everything in their power to get a copy of this incredible CD.
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
The Amazing Jeckel Brothers is... well, AMAZING! A masterpiece. Very well done! Hours of listening enjoyment! A sense of humor is required. ENJOY!
I think this cd is definitly one of icp's best albums, next to Bizzar.
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.
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.
Dont ya just love this album, its so good isnt it Kids, Its so damn good and creative isnt it, ya just keep telling your self that.
