First things first. The album cover for Cypress Hill's Elephants On Acid is hard as fu*k. While you marvel at the intricate level of detail, be sure to show some love to the legendary group's ninth studio album. At twenty-one songs, the endeavor is a lengthy odyssey to be sure; given the likely recommended dose of psychedelic assistance, it's entirely possible a single listening session may transpire in a single minute, or perhaps an eternity. Hard to say.
Either way, the journey is yours to take. Cypress Hill remains sharp, with the welcome return of the irreplaceable DJ Muggs. Should you arrive at the crossroads with a healthy dose of skepticism, don't take the plunge on reputation alone. Rest assured that Cypress Hill still have potential to innovate, and while they may occasionally veer into non-sequiturs, consider that the finest bud-infused conversations often do.
