Kottonmouth Kings' agenda is nothing if not single-minded. In their world, wholesale legalization of marijuana is, as Peter Tosh once put it, a must. And with ROLLIN' STONED, their fourth official full-length, there's no way they can be accused of not staying on-message. These Orange County, California dope fiends play a fully evolved mix of rap and hardcore with such no-brainer titles as "4-2-0" and "Light It Up." But their stoner aesthetic belies a savvy approach to both production and performance--there's no Grateful Dead-style excessive instrumental frippery in evidence here.
"Sleepers," with its Turkish Casbah ambience and triumphal told-you-so message to all the band's haters, both comes straight to the point and serves as potted band history for those who've been tardy tuning in. And as if to prove they're not just concrete-brained Cali hardcore stoners, there's the almost pastoral "Positive Vibes," a gently swaying gem to beguile the unwary before it morphs into some Jamaican-style toasting and the dynamic hardcore So-Cal two-step of "Zero Tolerance." With STONED the Kings give a cursory nod to both West Coast rap and Dave Matthews Band-style stoner rock before heading off into their own unique tangerine-colored sunset.
