  1. Elephunk drops non-stop hook and hump, an album with almost no missteps and more than its share of undeniable, thumping joy.
  2. The unashamed enthusiasm and fun in 'Elephunk' makes BEP the true heirs to the legendary De La Soul.
  3. 77
    Sweaty, funky and thump-inclined. [#6, p.82]
  4. Elephunk may not blow up, but it does go pop with enough style and verve to make its lack of substance irrelevant.
  5. The snags occur with the group's efforts at grit and substance.
  6. 20
    The crew's 1982-ish rhyme schemes and vapid lyrics reach new lows. [Oct 2003, p.85]

    The Peas best and most commercial album, Elephunk incorporates enough of the old stuff to keep their loyal fans happy and new stuff to draw in the punters. One new inclusion at the time was Fergie, who was possibly key to the success of this album. A better singer than all the other boys her up front vocals drive the songs through. A slightly strange song name choice of 'Lets Get Retarded?' got the media into a storm but it's not a bad song and goes along with the some what crazy nature of the Peas. This album is good if not quite great but its perfect if you just fancy a dance. Expand
