A suprise! Cypress Hill go (kinda) "reggae". Not 100% successfully but at least they're breaking the mold - good on 'em. Oddly they've sampled The Clash's great classic Guns Of Brixton, (not the first time this has been done for a rap) but toned down the bass, for some reason... It leaves the track a little tinny; however the psychotically clipped singing of B-Real gives it a lot of energy.
The lyric is about a guy chatting up a girl in a night club, from first
sight of his quarry, his initial longing, through to the shy-defensive approach and the fall and eventual rise of his hopes (among other things).
The continuous singing and the integrity of the description delivers a
hyper-intense reality, a Tarentino-like treatment of the subject. On the
second hearing I was smiling at the conversation described. As the rhythm
got me going it became a really enjoyable track to listen to. Good stuff.
