Who Let the Dogs Out

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
The Bahamas' venerable Baha Men have reinvented themselves with the club anthem "Who Let the Dogs Out," a high-energy stew of soca stylee, hip-hop lingo, and the traditional Bahamian party music called junkanoo. Folks winin' in the dance hall to the speed rapping of new Baha man Marvin Prosper can be forgiven for not noticing the storied roots of this music; in true Caribbean fashion, the Baha Men are all about having a good time, traditions be damned. As calypso glitzed up into soca, so has the Baha Men's version of junkanoo, funked up with synthesizers, guitars, and hip-hop era production. The real shot in the arm is the addition of three new vocalists to the lineup:...

The Bahamas' venerable Baha Men have reinvented themselves with the club anthem "Who Let the Dogs Out," a high-energy stew of soca stylee, hip-hop lingo, and the traditional Bahamian party music called junkanoo. Folks winin' in the dance hall to the speed rapping of new Baha man Marvin Prosper can be forgiven for not noticing the storied roots of this music; in true Caribbean fashion, the Baha Men are all about having a good time, traditions be damned. As calypso glitzed up into soca, so has the Baha Men's version of junkanoo, funked up with synthesizers, guitars, and hip-hop era production. The real shot in the arm is the addition of three new vocalists to the lineup: Prosper, Rick Carey (who sings lead on "Dogs") and 19-year-old Omerit Heild, whose uncle was the original lead singer of the group. The new recruits make the Baha Men's insistent efforts to get junkanoo as much respect as soca and dancehall reggae that much more credible -- "Get Ya Party On" is a salute to hip-hop's old school, with shout-outs to Kurtis Blow and others, and "You All Dat" samples the wimo-weh chorus from "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," which was brought to a new generation via Disney's The Lion King. If the urge to dance has you scratching at the door, you know it's time to let these dogs out.
All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
The Caribbean trio the Baha Men get into the mainstream on their fifth release Who Let the Dogs Out, a brash and funky twist of east coast hip-hop and traditional reggae loops. The initial impression of the album thrives on the success of the album's self-titled single. It's amusing with it's abrasive whoomping throughout the song's chorus, and the Baha Men's quirky beatboxing is head-bopping and energetic. However, throughout the rest of the album, the overall party/celebratory tone takes a toll. It's fun and freewheeling, but it needs variety. The spunk exuded in the title track only delivers so much, so the album falls short just a bit. But for a decent hip-hop album, it's keeping up with current styles and norms.

    this cd really is bad

    too much of the same sound, they really need to either slow a couple of the songs down, or maybe speed them up, i'd buy the single, nobody will know who they are in a year anyway

    The New Fad of 2000

    Everyone in my whole town loves this song. In grade schools, my little sister tells me the people in her class sing this song while they are opening their desks. Just about every dog can woof along to the music, even if they aren't very good... the lyrics were even written on the dry erase board one day at school.

    Best CD I've bought yet!

    This CD is great! It's got rap, hip-hop, dance...everything. This is a CD you'll buy and actually listen to over and over and over and over again. Now I'm just trying to find the other 6 albums they've put out to date, wish me luck.

    Kids Will Love This & So Will Their Parents!!!

    This CD is Kid-Safe. All songs have some meaning that relates to life. Finally! A band that doesn't need to use swearing to make the music hip!
