Entertainment Weekly - 7/30/93, p.56
"...BLACK SUNDAY might as well be titled MORE SONGS ABOUT GATS AND BLUNTS. And that's just fine, because [Cypress Hill]'s basic formula--wacked-out Spanglish tough talk, deep bass & DJ Mugg's trademark squeals and sirens--is such a winner..." - Rating: A-

Q - 10/93, p.105
3 Stars - Good - "...dope hasn't brought [Cypress Hill] much peace: the bulk of [BLACK SUNDAY] are the usual threats and slanging....Thankfully absent from their hardcore stance is the brute sexism that normally goes along with such a tough guy routine..."

Up to SKULL & BONES, 1993's BLACK SUNDAY had been Cypress Hill's greatest commercial success, and it's no wonder. The album's funky grooves and mellow but danceable rhythms helped to expand Cypress Hill's audience, hooking fans of alternative rock as well as earning Cypress Hill props from hip-hop die-hards.
Fourteen solid grooves make up this album from the West Coast trio, beginning with the dope anthem "I Wanna Get High." "Insane in the Brain" and "I Ain't Goin' Out Like That" are already hip-hop classics, each featuring the signature rolling bass hooks that defined Cypress Hill's sound before the group began experimenting with heavy metal. Deftly culled soul and Latin jazz samples provide a smooth backdrop for the intricate rhythms featured here. Refreshingly intelligent social concerns also find expression, with a tolerance that's rare indeed in the isolationism of rap. BLACK SUNDAY is a delightful departure from the obsession with guns and money that usually taints the West Coast school's output.
