Monkey Business is the latest release from R and B Sensation Black Eyed Peas, and is another great one from this talented musician.
It’s a rare day indeed that I get a CD from an artist that I can truthfully say does not have a bad track in the bunch. I’m more than happy to announce that’s exactly what I must say about this one. There simply is NOT a bad one in the bunch. No fillers here at all, with each song standing tall on it’s own.
This one grabs your attention right from the very first note with Pump It and doesn’t let go until the very last note of the very last song Union, which is another great track by the way.
R and B music fans will recognize some of the well-known guests that have been assembled to play along throughout this collection on several of the tracks. Artists like Sting, Justin Timberlake and James Brown just to name a few.
Overall Monkey Business is another outstanding CD release from the Black Eyed Peas. Quite possibly the groups best to date. Really spectacular from beginning to end. If you’re even mildly into R and B music you’ll enjoy this CD.
While this entire CD is outstanding some of my favorites are track 1 Pump It, track 6 – Like That, and track 10 They Don’t Want Music.
My SmoothLee Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore […as in “Stuck On REpeat”] is track 8, Feel It. This is a really great track!
