Good Lookin' Out:
This is one of the weirdest and most experimental rap albums made in the early 90's. J. Beez Wit The Remedy is a bold and daring record that was way ahead of it's time and no doubt left many mainstream hip hop fans (and many Jungle Brothers fans) scratching their heads in confusion. this incarnation of Jungle Brothers featured the insane hip hop artist Sensational (billed here on this album as Torture) in their ranks and that might explain some of the less than common styles represented here. The production of tracks like "Spittin' Wicked Randomness" and "For The Headz At Company Z" seem to hint at appreciation of experimental industrial music and contain a very hallucinagenic affect. This was originally roduced by Bill Laswell (him again? uggh), but his first mix was deemed way too experimental by the record label and the final cut trims the crazed factor down a bit; but still remains an interesting listen.
