MASTERS OF THE SUN VOL. 1 Tracklist:
To BEP: Music has reached its level. Originality at its highest. You have Hip-Hop, R&B and Jazz Elements of realms of broad chemistry. Creativity a thumbs up. Still had that Fergie add feel to it. This album represents the terms: “different and diverse”, great job. No offense (to the Forefathers) but this album has been repositioned before ‘80s HipHop. Music Outstanding.
This album has the Boom-Bap rawness with the refined skills of will.i.am. The beats alone are worth the price of admission. The first track, BACK 2 HIPHOP, makes me wish will.i.am had done NASIR instead of Kanye, then it might have been the Nas album we’d all been waiting so long for.
Finally! I’m very hyped to say hear them bring back this sound after going “left” with it. Nobody has production like Will I Am which made his absence from hip hop more of a loss. Good job fellas, we need more of this of this!
It’s not as great as their other stuff. I don’t like it when politics get involved. There are only two or three decent songs, the rest is straight garbage. I waited 8 years for this, not worth the wait.
This is the black eyed peas I remember from 20yrs ago! I was a teenager discovering my tastes in music. BEP’s Behind The Front helped shape my tastes to what they are today. Needless to say I wasn’t exactly thrilled when they switched to a more pop sound and added a pop singer. This however is the BEP I know! Welcome back guys!
I'm glad the Peas decided to make good music again, I guess Fergie was holding them back. It is a decent album, though it could be longer and Street Livin' should've been included. Best songs: yes or no, get ready, ring the alarm, wings, back 2 hiphop, vibrations Worst song: dopeness (just not good, and C.L. whoever she is is not good at rapping)
It seems like they are trying way too hard to tell you how cool they are through the entire thing😂. If I had to compare it to anything it would be Brett Farve when he went to the Vikings. It’s not anything like the old stuff at all sadly. Oh yeah and where did Fergie go? New wave is definitely a bop though, that is the only reason it get’s two stars.
Ok so im a huge CL fan and so obviously that was my first song i listened to which was bomb! But i gave the whole album a listen to and omg..i didnt know i was going to enjoy the whole thing in one sitting! Sooo amazing!! 4evah and constant are definitely a fave next to dopeness!!!
For years, I’ve held high hopes that BEP can continue to win as hip hop artists. Admittedly, after Kim Hill was replaced with Fergie as their singer, and they switched their sound to pop/edm, I lost interest. But still respected them for reaching into other genres of music since they are after all, Artists. But the sound they were doing wasn’t my thing. Fast forward to 2018 and BEP has given their fans, the ones who supported them at the very beginning with the Behind The Front album, what they’ve been waiting for, for soooooooo many years. It’s the return to the Boom Bap, luscious melodies and raw lyricism. Thank you fellas for bringing the world another brilliant album and a surprisingly warm return to your roots since it’s desperately needed in music nowadays. We missed y’all. Peace.
This album is better than I expected. The sounds on this project is so reminiscent of the old days but also has a futuristic vibe that mixes so well. The collaborations on this were great as well. Glad the boys are back and are still killing the game
Fergie or no Fergie, this is Black Eyed Peas at their best! This album is exactly who they are and showcases the original bep with sick rhymes and dope beats. After 8 years they did it again! BEP till infinity!
