comentando Friendly As A Hand Grenade, CD, Album, WR013CD
When the Netwerk label released "Tackhead Tape Time", a somewhat compilative effort featuring re-workings of well known Gary Clail and company's EP tracks and such, I was pretty much buying almost everything the label was putting out, not really knowing what I was getting into. I really was not into the then hip-hop reguardless of the unique set of skills from the various engineers and producers at hand. Still, "Tackhead Tape Time" made enough of an impression for me to purchase the follow-up (on good old cassette no less) "Friendly As a Hand Grenade", which back in the pre-internet days was both well received and got good reviews. It was unfortunate that the project went into a general musical direction which I myself could not get into, save for the opener and closing tracks. As a whole the pieces have a feeling of clones and repeats of the previous effort(s) with higher-end and cleaner production, with a lot more added pseudo-soulful vocals atop already well known drum samples and repeated/recycled studio effects. There are some very good moments developping towards the second half of the album, featuring well known grooves which are quite Tackhead-ish for those who are well aware of the project's previous sound. It is by no means a bad record; in fact it is a step above their previous efforts but they were seemingly more focused on a specific demographic and target audience - perhaps "Tackhead Tape Time" was a means to expose the sound to a wider audience, and now with more attention directed at the project, "Friendly as a Hand Grenade" maybe was meant as a closer-to-their original ideas with better production values than previous efforts.
