Artist: Insane Clown Posse
Label: Fontana Island
Genre: Heavy Metal
Release: Jan 1999   My Rating: 0
Duration: 12:22
Summary: The rise of the Insane Clown Posse--or a group very much like them--was probably inevitable; somebody had to play the part of Howard Stern in the rap world. That it was two guys in clown makeup who rap--badly--over prerecorded tracks and spray their audiences with soda was a pure accident, brought about when their former record label dropped the act on the eve of the release of "The Great Milenko". "The Amazing Jeckel Brothers", their first proper follow-up album to "Milenko", capitalizes on their notoriety; it features guests like the Jerky Boys and Ol' Dirty Bastard and issues challenges to MTV, Lollapalooza, and Kiss bassist Gene Simmons--whom ICP accuse of stealing their "shit" (though "shtick" would be a more appropriate word, and it was Simmons's in the first place). ICP stick with the formula on "Jeckel Brothers" that they've, um, perfected; it's not for everyone, but fans won't be disappointed. "--Randy Silver"

Summary: When I first heard this album, I thought it was the most dull, pointless album that ICP had ever put out. However, as I listened to it and gave it another chance, it started to grow on me. The songs on here are very demented, yet if you think about it, that's the kind of album that Ringmaster should be. While Carnival of Carnage was all out humor/horror, this is supposed to be a serious joker's card about death. Here's an overview of the tracks:



1. Wax Museum: 2/5 - Eh, this one just introduces everything. Just another intro.



2. Murder Go Round: 5/5 - Easily one of the best - this is one of the tracks that illustrates the concept of the album. Plus, the beat is cool, which gives it more listening value.



3. Chicken Huntin': 5/5 - Classic ICP song. Shows hatred for rednecks. This was remade on Riddle Box.



4. Mr. Johnson's Head: 5/5 - Very humorous. While it's not one of the album's conceptual songs, it's a fun one to hear.



5. Southwest Song: 4/5 - Somewhat unique track. I gave it 4 because it got rather boring.



6. Get Off Me Dog: 3.5/5 - I didn't like this one - lacked everything, really.



7. Who Asked You: 4/5 - Wicked song - very gruesome.



8. The Dead One: 3/5 - This was very disturbing.



9. My Fun House: 4/5 - Good Song.



10. For the Maggots: 4/5 - Title says it all.



11. Wagon Wagon: 4.5/5 - Another classic by ICP.



12. The Loons: 3/5 - This one didn't really please me too much. Don't know why.



13. Love Song: 4/5 - Good, but it's sequel is better. Another Love Song is found on the Amazing Jeckel Brothers.



14. Bugz on my Nutz: 4.5/5 - Great song. Rather demented, but it's ICP.



15. House of Mirrors: 5/5 - I find that on all of ICP's albums, the last song never fails. It's no different here - great song.



16. Ringmaster's Word: 3/5 - Just an outro. I don't count it as a last song.



This cd requires a lot of listens for you to like it, but once you start getting it, this is definately one of the better joker's cards. Buy it, but wait until you hear a few of the others first.
