    Swollen Members mean well but ultimately pay the price with this record as they attempt to move away from the formulaic hip-hop that has served them so well. Even though the group are enjoyable to listen to there is a distinct lack of direction and most of the tracks feel under developed. Vocally the group are average at best and the beats are unique but distinctly underwhelming.Swollen Members mean well but ultimately pay the price with this record as they attempt to move away from the formulaic hip-hop that has served them so well.

Unfortunately overall the record feels insignificant even though I know these guys deserve better. 65/100 Expand

  1. Fans hungry for SM material won't mind at all, since after three years a redundant track beats no track, and while all of it seems familiar, the crew deliver the material with new life, suggesting they're mad happy to be back on the grind.
  2. The newest disc from the once-innovative Vancouver group assaults you with 18 contrived, lazy tracks. The best is a seven-year-old re-release, 'Red Dragon,' from when Moka Only gave this outfit some class.
  3. The members were certainly armed, and they seem to hit more than they miss.
