Get at me dog! DMX returns with his sophomore album, FLESH OF MY FLESH BLOOD OF MY BLOOD, a sixteen cut collection of tracks that scream with energy and vocal prowess. In a move that bucks the trend of collaboration-heavy albums, FLESH OF MY FLESH BLOOD OF MY BLOOD, has only a few strategically placed collaborations. The Lox and Jay-Z drop science on "Blackout," while Mary J. Blige adds her smooth R&B touch to "Coming From." Perhaps the most improbable pairing is on "The Omen," which features Shock-turned-Glam Rocker Marilyn Manson. The track uses a sample from the famous horror movie of the same name from the late 1970's. Various producers including Swizz Beatz ("It's All Good"), PK and Dame Grease ("Dogs For Life") handle the beats, which range from street hard to jazzy smooth. Overall, DMX never fails to deliver the goods.
What the critics say...
Rolling Stone (2/4/99, p.61) - "DMX...shines, delivering a deep, intimate record that sounds like it was written in a confession booth..."
Entertainment Weekly (1/15/99, p.63) - "...As he rasps distinctively through a set of horror-show hardcore hip-hop, DMX's primal grooves pump as relentlessly as an AK-47 and he's not afraid to mix it up (Mary J. Blige and Marilyn Manson make cameos)....At his best, he radiates a nihilistic thug charisma that rivals Tupac's." - Rating: B+
The Source (2/00, p.95) - Included in The Source's "Top 10 Albums of the Year ."
The Source (3/99, p.212) - "...marks DMX's official canonization as a ghetto saint, who has made it loud and clear that the masses' pain becomes his pain..."
