Detroit rapcore quintet Critical Bill may play a style that may have come and gone, but they showcase a zest for making the hybrid fly on their latest disc DOWNTOWN THE WORLD. Meshing the laid back rhyming of Everlast with the rowdy metallic stance taken by Hed PE, this act provides the background music for countless frat boy keggers, strip club changeovers, pro wrestling soundtracks, and wiggas everywhere to bounce to on cuts like the West Coast strut on "What You Came Here For", the 311 meets Saliva stomp heard on "The Shouting" and the POD-esque "Rock Like That". Basically, if you're all about the bling and like the way the guitars go boom, this disc is the perfect companion to your cruising around the neighborhood.
