Terror Squad's AlbumTrue Story Lyrics
Terror Squad has changed a lot since their last album, considering the death of Big Pun, the dismissal of Cuban Link, and the forgotten-about Triple Seis. Their latest album, True Story, probably won't win any awards for Best Album of the Year, but it's a pretty decent offering from the group.
First off, I really don't understand why nobody seems to like this album. A lot of reviewers say that "Lean Back" is the only good song on here, and I have to disagree. It IS the BEST song on the album though, but there are also some other good songs, like "Streets of NY" and "Thunder In the Air". And while implementing deceased rappers' vaulted rhymes onto tracks is played out, it still works on "Bring `Em Back", where Fat Joe is teamed up with Big Pun and Big L.
There ARE some skippable tracks on here though, like "Terror Era" and the lame "Take Me Home". I'm also wondering if the generic "Yes Dem to Def" was really intended to be on Fat Joe's upcoming album Things of That Nature because he's the only one in that song, and he keeps quoting that album title throughout it.
But that brings me to another point. This album really feels more like a compilation than a group effort, because at no point are all five members in the same song, not even during the chorus (The Firm, anyone?). Oh well, this is still a pretty good album from Terror Squad. It's not the best rap I've heard all year, but it's worth picking up.
This album is nice!
About this album:
I disagree with most of the reviews I've read on this album so far. I got this cd in the summer and I'm still playing it. Sure, "Lean Back" got old kinda fast, but before I heard it played every two seconds I thought it was a hot song. There are other good songs like "Nothing's Gonna Stop Me," "Take Me Home," "Streets of NY" and "Bring 'Em Back" with Big Pun and Big L. To be honest, I can listen to the whole cd through without skipping a song. TS has a sound unlike any other hip hop artists out there. It's a raw NY sound that mixes old styles with new ones and it works. I haven't heard a hip hop album that's impressed me like this one in a long time.
I have no problem with Remy being on a lot of the tracks on the cd. She's a great up and coming female rapper and deserves all the time she has on the record. I heard her in some battles before this and thought she was hot and now that I've heard her on record I think she's even better. She's got lines that'll blow most female rappers out of the water. She's really doing her thing and I've got nothing but respect for her.
All the members of the group are really talented, and it shows on this album. People can hate all they want but I'm loving True Story.Source: Amazon.com
