DJ Muggs carries Cypress Hill far here, even when B Real has a delivery on a song or two that I'm not crazy about. This album is mostly stoner hip hop, but with some horror-sounding beats in the mix, too. Really good, occasionally great, and featuring a LOVELY Ice Cube diss in No Rest For The Wicked. The one thing that it's missing in comparison to the first two Cypress Hill records is an anthem - the debut had How I Could Kill A Man and Hand On The Pump, Black Sunday had Insane In The Brain ... read more


Illusions is one of their best tracks. Their early run was lit, one stoner classic after another.


It's very hard to choose favourites from their first 4 albums. This one is very unique in own way.
Very dark atmospheric, raw and even psychedelic.
Musically this album is on another level, DJ Muggs surpassed himself. Very powerful, deep and creative album and another great stoner album.
There is no albums that takes you better in that mood that this one.
Still I like Black Sunday more.

Standout tracks: Throw Your Set in the Air, Illusions, Boom Biddy Bye Bye, Locotes, Red Light Visions.
