Swollen Members - Monsters in the Closet (2002) Retail CD
West Coast Rap
This trawl through the vaults of the Vancouver-based hip-hop collective Swollen Members is unusual for a collection of B-sides and leftovers — in that it ends up being more forward- than backward-looking. That's because the underground stalwarts — Mad Child and Prevail, plus recent addition Moka Only — decided to record a few new songs to fill out the disc, which ends up pointing the way to possible commercial successes previously undreamed of. "Breath," with its hook from Nelly Furtado and a juicy R&B foundation, could slot comfortably between the latest Murder Inc. and P. Diddymore… hits on a mix tape, while the manic "Battle Axe Exclusive" rages along in true Eminem fashion. Such moments won't necessarily be a pleasant surprise for the Members' devoted fanbase, but the remainder of Monsters in the Closet provides a generous helping of the less-conventional musical ambition that has won the group comparisons to Jurassic 5, Dilated Peoples, and other old-school revivalists. There's one true gem — "Long Way Down," a sensitive love song that samples Sarah McLachlan's "Ice Cream" — and many outtakes of better-than-average quality; though they aren't all monsters, they certainly deserve to come out of hiding.
