Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. has often favored live instrumentation over loops and samples. Angry Samoans, their first album since 2003's West Koastra Nostra, is entirely reliant on drums and guitars, yet it's equally grounded in metal (whereas their earlier albums were more in line with the kind of loose funk occasionally heard on other West Coast albums by Above the Law, N.W.A, and Kid Frost). Backed by a competent, hard-hitting quartet, the Devoux brothers lay into each track with as much ferocity as expected. In the ears of most fans of the group, it's all that's truly necessary.
