People Under the Stairs – Highlighter (2.1/10)
[So against my better judgment I’ve started checking out “What’s New” albums on Spotify.] This PUTS album is absolutely awful. My first impression of the L.A.-based hip-hop group’s 8th album was that the Funky Bunch had finally bucked up and released music independent of their figurehead, Marky Mark. (They were awarded .1 points for that.) If you liked the Lords of the Underground’s 1993 album Here Come the Lords, you’d definitely hate this record.
I am unable to serve up witty quips because I’m still stupefied by the uninspired lyrics and flagrant awfulness. No words. I actually suggest that you listen to it yourself if only to justify my opinion. Please. [If you like it, never again visit our website.]
BTW, The Lords were dope-sound.
