Album Review of "The Recipe 2"
Remember how you use to always love your grandma's cooking? How the aroma would fill the whole house? She told you that one day she would pass down the recipe to you so you could make the meal your own. The Recipe 2 is Crack Sauce's second attempt to cook up a feast for their ever hungry, ever ready fans.
It's safe to say that this time Crack Sauce was aiming to cook us a roast. When cooking a roast, you have to put it on low heat for about 2 to 4 hours. If the heat is turned up too high you run the risk of the roast being too dry. Such was the case with Bozo, Back Out My Face and Lady Currency where the energy and aggressiveness overpowered the lyrics. The features on the album added an interesting blend of spices. "Get It" with Picasso and Vincent Vega meat tenderized the meal with their flair. There were interesting and out of the order combinations of spices/features on "Turn it up" and "That Mess". Even though the appearance of the roast and the all around feel for the album is questionable, you taste songs like "Underdog Music" and "Where are you" and you get that fulfilled taste you search for in every meal. You then understand that even though it's not how Grandma used to make it, but you see where their best efforts were made.
