  • Summary: This debut LP for the Brooklyn retro rap outfit (consisting of three female vocalists--including two high school students--backed by a pair of DJs) includes their surprise hit single, "Cameltoe."

  1. Three thin voices rap-sing-chant over the same bare-bones electro that sophisticates equate with two-headed dildos and black leatherette. But here, it intensifies the toughness, naïveté, moralism, sentimentality, ambition, ebullience, and sex drive all high school girls know but few have the sass to project and none have forged into art, especially with a Brooklyn accent.

    The party album of the year has arrived. [Aug 2003, p.87]

    It's a little creepy hearing such adolescent voices hooked to Miami booty bass. [Aug 2003, p.116]
  4. Stylistic may be an After School Special version of Miami bass, but the joke is on the genre: FannyPack deflate all the blowup-doll fantasies in booty music and replace them with real live girls.
  5. Though the formula is irresistible at times, it's tough not to squirm.
  6. There are moments of brilliance here, sure... but there are a few too many weak skits and a few too many weak tracks here to make this anything other than a mildly cool summer thang, and summer is, like totally over now.

    Fannypack is my favorite discovery of the year. I can't stop listening to it and truly love its subversive, raw attitude. I hope they aren't a flash in the pan and look forward to a quick follow-up album. Expand
