After establishing itself with a brilliant debut, Cypress Hill broke through to the masses with its sophomore album. Black Sunday retains all the distinctive qualities of its predecessor, but this time the atmosphere is mellower, and the hooks are catchier. The tone is set by I Wanna Get High in which DJ Muggs blends samples from three different songs and creates a sound that evokes billows of smoke. The stoned atmosphere continues with Legalize It and Hits from the Bong (which makes great use of Dusty Springfield’s Son Of A Preacher Man), but Black Sunday still has plenty of Los Angeles menace. C**k the Hammer, I Ain’t Goin’ Out Like That and Lick a Shot are psychotic party anthems, while the sauntering, simmering grooves of Lil’ P**os and What Go Around Come Around, Kid strike a low-key pose of gangsta cool. Even when the craziness reaches a fever pitch, the songs are always grounded in Muggs’ rock-solid rhythms. The group’s chemistry peaks on When the Sh– Goes Down and Insane In the Brain two hit anthems that exemplify the trio’s devastating potency.
