CD Review:

While driving to Hollywood from the San Francisco Bay Area in the middle of the night, I listened to this project repeatedly while on Highway 5. It kept me alert. It will keep you alert too - regardless of what time of the day it is. There's something on here for everybody. Because of that, it's truly difficult to choose an item on an all-you-can eat menu that features the foods you like.

The track which spoke to me immediately was the Dr. Dre-esque, "Came Here To Party," with its funky bass line, and head-bobbing beat. Too much high-end in the mix prevented me from loving it. The more reliable radio bets are the highly commercial tracks "Dollla Signs," and "Feeling My Style," which are contemporary and feature sizzling performances.

Hoodlum Gang has created a Molotov Music cocktail which could explode if placed in the right hands.
