Welcome to the ICP Section!
Forgotten Freshness Vol. 3
Okay, let me get a few things clear. ICP hasn't been quite the same since Jeckel Brothers. This CD shows it off almost as well as Bizzar and Bizaar. It has some of the strangest songs ever done by the Insane Clown Posse. I'm not saying that it's really a bad thing, but I miss the old ICP.
Anyhow, this CD is "all the lost, scrapped, and forgotten shit" since Jeckel Brothers came out. Well, all except for "Nuttin But a Bitch Thang," which has been featured on ICP's website for a while and "Posse on Vernor," which was on the compilation CD "Take a Bite out of Rhyme." Also previously released is "Confessions," "Super Star," and "Run!" which were all featured as singles packaged with ICP's Pendulum comic books. "Insane Killers" was featured on Vanilla Ice's new CD, "Bi-Polar" and "Just Another Crazy Click" was already on Three 6 Mafia's new CD.
But even with all those songs already released, it's nice to have all of them on one CD to listen to, along with the nine other songs on the album. Okay, you were probably wondering "How weird are some of these songs?" I guarantee you they're weirder than ANYTHING on Forgotten Freshness Vols. 1 & 2. For instance, "Fly Away" begins with tribal sounding chants and has plenty of rock guitar in it. "Take It!" is ICP's firsty HEAVY heavy metal song I've heard. It's a good listen if you only thought they could do their traditional wicked clown raps.
If you like Dark Lotus (which I'm sure you do), Violent J does a remix of one of the songs. Overall, it's a great *EXPERIMENTAL* CD to see exactly what Juggalos like. But from now on, ICP, don't put BAGPIPES in your shit!
Overall Score: 8.5 (Scale from 1 - 10)
