Review

Having found its voice on Same as It Ever Was, House of Pain delivered an equally captivating effort with its third album, Truth Crushed to Earth Shall Rise Again. Being Anglo rappers in a genre that had grown increasingly hostile toward whites, Everlast and Danny Boy encountered their share of racism and bigotry. And they responded by being unapologetically street and hardcore, while bragging about their Irish heritage. On the whole, the album's subject matter isn't very substantial -- the group still spends too much time boasting. But as was also the case with Same as It Ever Was, the LP is impossible to resist thanks to House of Pain's insanely captivating hooks and Everlast's twisted style of rapping. ~ Alex Henderson
