Up to SKULL & BONES, 1993's BLACK SUNDAY had been Cypress Hill's greatest commercial success, and it's no wonder. The album's funky grooves and mellow but danceable rhythms helped to expand Cypress Hill's audience, hooking fans of alternative rock as well as earning Cypress Hill props from hip-hop die-hards.
Fourteen solid grooves make up this album from the West Coast trio, beginning with the dope anthem "I Wanna Get High." "Insane in the Brain" and "I Ain't Goin' Out Like That" are already hip-hop classics, each featuring the signature rolling bass hooks that defined Cypress Hill's sound before the group began experimenting with heavy metal. Deftly culled soul and Latin jazz samples provide a smooth backdrop for the intricate rhythms featured here. Refreshingly intelligent social concerns also find expression, with a tolerance that's rare indeed in the isolationism of rap. BLACK SUNDAY is a delightful departure from the obsession with guns and money that usually taints the West Coast school's output.
Artist Overview
Cross hardcore rap, alternative rock, and a defiantly pro-marijuana agenda, and you get groundbreaking hip-hoppers Cypress Hill. The band's genre-bending approach, as well as its English-Spanish bilingualism and rapper B-Real's distinctive nasal style, has earned them a wide and varied following. They debuted in 1991, but hit the big time two years later with the crossover hit "Insane in the Brain." Along the way, they've managed to work with the likes of Pearl Jam and Sonic Youth without ever losing their hip-hop credibility.

Entertainment Weekly (7/30/93, p.56) - "...BLACK SUNDAY might as well be titled MORE SONGS ABOUT GATS AND BLUNTS. And that's just fine, because [Cypress Hill]'s basic formula--wacked-out Spanglish tough talk, deep bass & DJ Mugg's trademark squeals and sirens--is such a winner..." - Rating: A-
