Overview

Anything that lists the Brian Austin Green song (yes, the same guy from Beverly Hills 90210) "You Send Me [Jazz Mix]" among its tracks is immediately suspect, and such initial hesitations are proven true with the rest of Urban Sounds: Hip-Hop & Reggae 1996-2000. Although some of the cuts included (the Sporty Thievz hit "No Pigeons," a humorous response to TLC's "No Scrubs" Cam'ron's "House & Carriage," John Forté's "Ninety Nine (Flash the Message)") garnered some attention when they initially came out in the late '90s. while many of the others (Strings' "Raise It Up," Charli Baltimore's "Feel It") had little success. Of course, this doesn't mean that they can't be good in themselves, but it does mean that the compilation will isolate itself from most people, as it doesn't offer a particularly recognizable (either in the mainstream or underground) lineup. Yes, Urban Sounds does offer a sampler of what was happening (in the broadest sense of the term) between those four years, but it's also neither cohesive, chronological, nor in-depth.
