Name: Ice Gorilla (Posted: 4/29/2006 3:17:00 PM) Comment: It's telling that Vinnie Paz's final words on "Tear It Down" are "This the '94 boom-bap shit we be preaching" because this song ain't nothing but a throwback. Army of the Pharaohs have been talking about releasing a full length CD since I first heard JMT's Violent by Design my sophomore year of college. And now its here and all I can think is – sounds just like the enjoyable Boston boom-bap I was bumping back then. "Tear It Down" is a time warp back to the mid 90s rough-around-the-edges posse cuts where each emcee had sixteen bars to violently declare why they were the hardest rapper. The Boston crew performs admirably, each rapper lacing their respective piece with their own trademark ish-talking. Vinnie Paz stands out above the rest, easing back into the sound of his heyday after too much time spent trying to escape his roots. Loptimist's beat is nothing you haven't heard before, but the high-pitched organ, big drums and scratched up chorus set the right mood for a time jump back to the 90s.
