Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 12/9/99, pp.75-6
3.5 stars out of 5 - "...52 burning-hot minutes of molasses-thick grooves which prove yet again that, between Goodie Mob and their producers at LaFace, there's no place like the South to throw a party."
Spin - 1/00, p.121
8 out of 10 - "...thanks to fierce grooves, indelibly catchy vocal riffs, and the mesmerizing interplay of their deliciously slurred drawls, they pull off...'positive hardcore'...preaching to the unconverted and converted alike."
Entertainment Weekly - 1/14/00, p.78
"...With street beats and rave-bleeps, God-praising and queer-baiting, progressive politicking and womanizing, the Mob run a conflicted nightclub. But dull it ain't." - Rating: B+
Q - 5/01, p.131
4 stars out of 5 - "...Their peculiar blend of literate ranting and jeep-friendly beats seems all the more appealing....demonstrating their fondness for lending a pop edge to otherwise hardfaced mutterings..."
Vibe - 2/00, p.166
"...another victorious chapter in their saga of success....the album shows a more humane Mob, expanding their sound beyond hip hop's usual parameters....showing that they, too, like to hang out at the club, smoke dank, and sip on 'gnac..."
The Source - 1/00, p.190
3.5 mics out of 5 - "...up tempo, backyard, beat-boosting sounds....succeeds in providing its audience with the healthy hip-hop that feeds the intellect, as well as stimulates the body."
NME (Magazine) - 1/15/00, p.27
8 out of 10 - "...[they] sweeten their music fro mass consumption....a distinctive Southern atmosphere still swamps [the album] with layered voices thick as molasses and equal dedication to partying, cutting loose, and ghetto protest politics....pretty funky..."

In the glut that is the Southern rap scene, it's easy for cream to get lost in the tidal wave of less-than-stellar material. However, Atlanta's Goodie Mob stands behind only fellow Altantans Outkast in the field of Southern-fried hip-hop, with its relaxed-as-that-Countrytime-Lemonade-guy grooves and flows and its perfect balance of intelligent rhymes and party jam know-how. WORLD PARTY finds the foursome at the top of its game with a perfectly even collection of 13 thoroughly original cuts.
Goodie Mob's four members--Cee-Lo, Khujo, T-Mo, and Big Gipp--play off each other sweetly with their varied styles, which range from Busta-stylin' growl to more rapid-fire delivery. The foursome reaches a high on the let-it-all-hang-out "Fie FieDelish," the slamminly infectious disco party jam (think Earth, Wind & Fire branching into rap) "The Dip," and the easygoing title track, which is centered on Lionel Richie's "All Night Long" (one of a few endearingly cheeky references). Also worth noting is the face-off with the multi-platinum TLC on "What It Ain't (Ghetto Enough)," a groovy, almost sensual anthem. The final touch is provided by the hands of Organized Noize whose production touch is felt throughout this solid third effort from Goodie Mob.
