With their brawling take on golden-age hip-hop (the drunken yang to Cypress Hill's blissed-out yin?), proud-to-be-Irish-American trio House of Pain could easily have been a tired clich‚. However, with acrobatic, learned lyrics and dexterous beats farmed from bop, blues, and deep funk, the L.A. band of Everlast, Danny Boy, and DJ Lethal turned out to transcend predictability. While best known for "Jump Around," the frenetic sing-a-long that surprised even the band itself by becoming a #3 pop hit, the threesome's 1992 debut offers a vast array of styles ranging from the sly, hazy "Shamrocks & Shenanegans" to the sinister "House of Pain Anthem" to the sweetly lively "Top O' The Morning To Ya."

Rolling Stone (10/29/92, p.70) - 3.5 Stars - Good Plus - "...With a groovy swagger, this collection of hard-core hip-hop tracks offers many moments of technicolor snap and crackle..."
Q (12/92, p.124) - 3 Stars - Good - "...their music is of the dense, hard-hitting school of hip hop...the group have absorbed black rap's musical lessons and create a satisfying platform for their above average deliveries..."
The Source (9/92, p.57) - 3.5 Stars - Good Plus - "...a very solid and at times exceptional album...imagine if LICENCED TO ILL wasn't an upper middle class Jewish thing but rather a working class Irish thang...the atmosphere is like that of a cross between a frat party and a bar room brawl..."
NME (Magazine) (11/7/92, p.34) - 6 - Good - "...contains some creative and accomplished rap music..."
