Rolling Stone - 5/11/00, p.132
3.5 stars out of 5 - "...A bipolar breakdown....proving hip-hop is more like T2...capable of morphing into anyone they wanna be."

Cypress Hill's unique sound sets it apart from all the other outfits in the hip-hop genre. Since its breakthrough album, 1993's BLACK SUNDAY, its drug and gun-related lyrics have helped it maintain a hardcore fan base. SKULL & BONES is split into two separate CDs, the "Skull" disc being the dedicated rap segment, with "Bones" devoted to rock.
Synthesized orchestral strings and kick drum propel B-Real's distinct nasal rap on "(Rap) Superstar," which lays bare the pitfalls awaiting artists who attain their dreams and make it big in the music industry. B-Real and Sen Dog's lyrical skills are on display throughout this set, notably on the rebellious, attitude-driven "What U Want From Me." The second disc features members of Fear Factory, Rage Against The Machine, Downset, and SX10, with Cypress' Bobo on drums. The group's quick raps flow over a monstrous sound that puts most rap pretenders to shame. "Get Out Of My Head" is a speedy, riffing number with a great hook, while "Dust" pays homage to the Anthrax/Public Enemy collaboration of a decade ago. SKULL & BONES 2 CD set will satisfy longtime Cypress fans while also appealing to a new metal audience.
