  1. What carries the album is, I swear, the skits.
  2. 75
    Pursues a darker strain of irony. [Dec 2004, p.124]
  3. The skits keep it realer than reality TV. [25 Nov 2004, p.88]
  4. It's obvious after a few listens that the weight of the talent collected here hurts White People as often as it helps.
  5. White People, at its worst, acts as sort of a middling appendix to So, Where's Your Girl?.
  6. 60
    The humourless skits drag... but somehow the Handsome Boy charm still wins through. [Dec 2004, p.137]
  7. Things lurch heavy-handedly from reggae to rap to 1950s film music.

    I have had this album for a long time...i have never seen any reviews of it until now and just let me say that the ratings i have seen are I have had this album for a long time...i have never seen any reviews of it until now and just let me say that the ratings i have seen are completely wrong (my opinion). This is a great album that does a awesome job of blending genres. Any fan of the new DangerDoom album should go back and by this album immediately. Be prepared to be Awed. Expand

    This CD is definitely not for everybody. Those looking for an album exactly like the previous one from handsome Boys Modeling school will be This CD is definitely not for everybody. Those looking for an album exactly like the previous one from handsome Boys Modeling school will be dissapointed. If you are looking for a straight up hip-hop album, a lot of the songs wont be for you. With all that taken into account, I loved it. Go into it with an open mind (The RZA and John Oats in the same CD?) and you will be pleasently surprised. Expand

    There's some magic in "white people". The first half is very pleasing and almost perfect, but things are hit and miss in the later half.

This was not that original the best song was with Cat Power and outside of this album I dispise Cat Power. It was good enough for 1 6 but nothing more or less. Come on guys Expand
