Review: The Goats - No Goats No Glory

Artist: The Goats
Album: No Goats, No Glory
Year: 1994
Label: Ruff House

The Goats hail from Philadelphia and the group consists of eight members, Madd, D Rek and Swayzack are the frontmen on vocals and the rest are the live percussion. "No Goats, No Glory" is their second album, the first being the classic "Tricks Of The Shade". This one probably is not as good as the previous album although has some pretty mad tracks.

The album starts off with "Wake 'n' Bake" and "Philly Blunts" two nice tracks about weed followed by my favourite track "The Boom" although for some weird reason the hook is different on wax than it is on cassette and disc?
The Goats are a 90% hip hop group but do have the percussion of guitars and drums on a few tracks like "Rumblefish", "Blind With Anger" and "Idiot Business" which are all good tracks.

The album is produced by Joe "The Butcher" Nicolo who is responsible for some of fellow Philly rapper Schoolly D's production. Overall this album is pretty sick from start to finish if your into their style of hip hop like "Smokin' Suckas Wit Logic". Since this album in '94 they have released an album under the group name "Incognegro" called "Keepin' It Lovely", other than that I wouldn't have a clue what they've been doing.
