This CD sounds dated but not in a bad way. I appreciated that I can understand all of the lyrics. And the first song, "Hip Hop Taking Over The World", has a jazzy feel to it so I hear some mixed genres going on. The music is pretty mild compared to today's Hip Hop that you would find on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Whether it's a right comparison or not, I.C.E. reminds me of Mac Miller. "We are I.C.E." was not hard on the ears like most hip-hop you hear on the radio. Sounds like they actually are in it for the music and not the money! I didn't have to skip any of the songs, so that's a plus. If I really had to describe this album, I'd say early 90's retro renaissance. Overall, I would say that this is a good album.
