Tha Addicts Ft. Snoop Album Review
« on: September 07, 2002, 02:18:07 AM »

Sup..Sup..

I reported about this release a while ago.. but just recently stumbled across a pretty cool album review.  I cant find any release date info on this artist and Im guessing that the promo must be in circulation in order for it to get reviewed..???  Oh well.. their website isn't up either so I guess we'll just have to wait.

Any info would be great.  Otherwise just check the review.  Thx.

"The Point Past Denial" Tha Addicts    
Tha Addicts are a group out of Palm Beach, Florida and consist of Blizz and Menace. Menace takes care of the production on the album, leaving only two to outside producers. There are a lot of skits on the album, but none disrupt the LP. Mostly itís different people calling in wanting to hear more of the group. They have on thatís just hilarious, a Mexican guy Hector at a pay phone, drinking a Corona just wanting to listen to Tha Addicts. A bass fiend myself, the Miami influenced production did not leave my speakers hanging. If blasting 'Get Doe' doesnít get you a couple nods at the beach, itís time to upgrade your system.
The most important factor this album has going for it is not being crowded with guest appearances, which seems to be a current trend. Only "What Itís about' featuring Snoop Dogg and the previously featured mentioned 'Get Doe' (featuring Triple) feature artists outside the camp. Even though it has been years since snoop Doggís prime, he manages to take over the track taking Tha Addicts on a west coast ride.

Concept wise 'Too Many' is easily the best track on the album, asking why only five percent of the people have ninety-five percent of the money. During the outro Tha Addicts take out their time to answer to all the people labeling them as white mcís in an interesting manner.

As in every review, the time came to point out the weak parts of this release. Tha Addicts pretty much stick with the old formula of having a party track, smoke out track etc. and it wouldnít be half bad, but it doesnít push Hip Hop into any new directions. Also the producer gets sort of lazy creating beats with minimum loop variations. The prime example of this is the repetitive 'Sights And Sound' which doesnít take long to annoy the hell out of somebody. Also the New York inspired 'Itís Ok' fails miserably.

If youíre wondering what these guys are addicted to, after hanging out with Blizz Iíll easily have to say itís alcohol. Itís always fun to listen to some of these groups early on, seeing where their careers take them. Overall, Tha Addicts came through with a fairly strong debut, and I wish them luck in the future.
