    Continuing the return to form that began with 2018's "Elephants on Acid" as well as returning Cypress Hill to their 420-friendly gangsta rap roots, old-school production combines with timely lyrical themes on "Back in Black" for a listen that's equal parts urgent and playful and serves as yet another vehicle for the flawless Beastie Boys-style vocal interplay between B-Real Sen Dog.Continuing the return to form that began with 2018's "Elephants on Acid" as well as returning Cypress Hill to their 420-friendly gangsta rap roots, old-school production combines with timely lyrical themes on "Back in Black" for a listen that's equal parts urgent and playful and serves as yet another vehicle for the flawless Beastie Boys-style vocal interplay between B-Real Sen Dog.

    Doper than the 20th of April in Boulder! B-Real and the boys still slapping them tunes like the Fresh Prince on Oscar Night!

    Back In Black certainly sounds like the core duo is having more fun making music than in years past. The album features some of the best music the group has made in years but doesn’t stack up to their trailblazing efforts of the ’90s.

    This latest effort is an unabashed classic hip hop record for you to either take it or leave it. The only disappointment is that it could have easily been more than this.

    Back In Black is a tribute, extension, and reminder of Cypress Hill at its peak, to do this so successfully thirty years after that era is impressive in its own unique way.
