The cover shot of a Fat Albert-ized Pharcyde roller coastering their way into a funhouse makes perfect sense, as the L.A.-based quartet introduced listeners to an uproarious vision of earthy hip-hop informed by P-Funk silliness and an everybody-on-the-mike street-corner atmosphere that highlights the incredible rapping skills of each member. With multiple voices freestyling over hilarious story-songs like "Oh Shit!," "Soul Flower," the dozens contest "Ya Mama," and even a half-serious driving-while-black critique named "Officer," Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde proved Daisy Age philosophy akin to De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest wasn't purely an East Coast phenomenon. Skits and interludes with live backing (usually just drums and piano) only enhance the freeform nature of the proceedings, and the group even succeeds when not reliant on humor, as proved by the excellent heartbreak tale "Passin' Me By." The production, by J-Sw!ft and the group, is easily some of the tightest and most inventive of any hip-hop record of the era. Though Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde could have used a few more musical hooks to draw in listeners before they begin to appreciate the amazing rapping and gifted productions, the lack of compromise reveals far greater rewards down the line.

Lots of albums take themselves too seriously; this is the first time I’ve heard one not take itself seriously enough. Undeniably fun, don’t get me wrong. But it feels like the musical equivalent of a guy that is easily talented enough to get into the NBA, but instead uses his gifts exclusively to throw suction-cup dildos into increasingly bizarre, high up, and hard to reach places.

This was a weird one. I can definitely see how a high schooler in 1992 would have loved this album. It's absurd, irreverent, immature, and high energy. Musically, I enjoyed this. The group has a DJ but a lot of the drums sure sounded live and originally recorded for this album, but I can't be sure. Overall the beats were a big plus for me. The album is a product of its time, however. We get an entire verse centered around transphobia ala Charlie Daniels's Uneasy Rider '88, and we get jokes about the MC's sexually assaulting women. I'm not going to clutch my pearls and pretend that I never engage in or enjoy edgy humor, but I guess those lines just left me cringing more than laughing. As for importance, this is a debut album released in the golden age of hip hop that has a unique feel, so to me it makes sense to see it on this list. My personal enjoyment: 2.5/5 Did it belong on this list: 4/5

One of the cornerstone west-coast hip-hop acts of the 90s, Pharcyde is just one of those bands that you know if you're into hip-hop. They offered a completely different take on the genre with their lighthearted (at times straight-up goofy) lyrics in a time when the genre was already starting to take itself too seriously. I always liked the bands that they inspired more than I did them but the elements that contributed to my love for Jurassic5, Digable Planets, and Blackstar are all here. It's just damn fun. That said, "Officer" stands out in sharp contrast as a track for back then but also RIGHT NOW. It's NOT funny. It's a legit converastion piece about racial profiling and feels very contemporary.

I forgot how funny this record is. There’s a ton of skits but the lyrics are really meant to be offensive and hilarious. Obviously has that jazz rap, boom nap production which is right up my alley. Do I prefer this over Tribe? Probably not. But does it rank as one of the best jazz rap records ever made. Most certainly. Favorite song(s): I’m That Type of Ni**a and Passin’ Me By Least favorite song: Pack the Pipe

An antidote to the typical LA gangster rap of the era (the Pharcyde hail from South Central LA), ‘Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde’ is gloriously absurd and ridiculous, juvenile but not silly, and a lot of fun. In another rare feat, there’s not a duff beat or groove to be found anywhere and so the album never drags. It stays jazzy and funky, resulting in one of rap/hip-hops greatest hits. Still as good today as it was in 92’.

Another really cool album. It's certainly a departure from what was popular in hip-hop at the time. Some aspects of the album sound dated, but overall the production is really good. Lots of fun songs 4/5

I was going to say this reminds me of the group Gravediggaz, before I realized this Pharcyde album was released a good 4 years earlier. This came from the west coast, though it feels closer to the east coast rap I'm most familiar with. The interplay is pretty awesome, and the beats sound fresh for an album so old. I was reading that the Pharcyde began touring with A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul after this album was released. I cannot imagine how fucking great that show would have been. This album was a good thing to hear on a sunday morning.

It reminds me of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. This is some classic early 90s hip-hop/rap. I like the instrumentals in most of these songs. I can definitely appreciate this type of music but would probably never listen to this album again.

Ooof. This is bad. And not bad meaning good but bad meaning bad. Passin Me By was absolutely lightning in a bottle and that along with some ok beats can salvage a 2. Lyrically it's terrible, sophomoric, and misogynistic and I would say it didn't hold up well but I don't think it was much good to begin with.

Talk about an album that has a huge nostalgia factor for me. "Oh Shit" is like the first rap song that I really liked since it was in some Saints Row game that I played when I was young. It felt so taboo because it's incredibly explicit for a kid to be listening to, but I had only really been listening to mainstream pop, classic rock, and heavy metal up until this point. I'm really glad it's on this list, because this album had kind of slipped my mind for too many years. I seriously doubt that other people will hold this as the quintessential rap album of the 90s, but for me it's hard to think of anything that I love more than this one. Maybe Low End Theory, but I feel like I'm leaning Pharcyde. It takes the shit out of a more pretentious side of rap while also being able to provide commentary on political/social issues, and have incredible storytelling. The skits are incredible, and the way the album is structured is incredibly theatrical which just adds to how much I love it even more. The group dynamic is amazing, and I don't think I can put into words the praise that I want to give this album. I also realize this review is just kind of me rambling about this album, and I can feel my friends just saying "who asked", but I hope you can enjoy this album as much as I enjoy it (or more!). Highlights: all of them. They're all amazing.

A very good album. Crept up from a 5/10 to 8/10 on repeat listens. Shit and Jiggaboo are hilarious - I'm going to be saying "Oh Shit!" for the rest of my life now. 4 better or 4 worse has a smooth backbeat and does an odd turn halfway through where the song basically goes full Insane Clown Posse. I'm that type of Nigga is just a classically good hip hop intro track. They should have made it the opening track to the album. Soul Flower is a fun and bouncy jam - whoever the female rapper is kills it! On the DL has a hilarious skit in the middle about jacking off on the DL. unforgettable. I knew the album was something special when "Officer" had Flavor Flav as a guest and when they said "I got a letter from the DMV the other day" I busted up because I knew what they were doing. It's a play on public enemies "Black Steel in the hour of Chaos." That's genius! It is an innocent song and might be my favorite on the album. Yo mama is the low point of the album. Doesn't age well. Otha Fish and pack the pipe are forgettable, but pack the pipe does have a part when they get a kid high. It is controversial and interesting for sure. Passing me by is what this album is remembered for and it deserves that. It is an awesome song. Relatable, catchy, and ahead of its time. I found it interesting that they used the word "symp" 30 years before it was common. Excellent vocals in that chorus - stressing the word "passing," you can feel some pain. It would have been easy to mess that up. 8/10!!

The debut by The Pharcyde is an insanely infectious good time. The group sounds like they are just having so much fun crafting and constructing their flows amongst the generally bare bones, upbeat and jazzy production. The beats are good, do the work they need to but isn't anything groundbreaking and honestly is probably the only thing holding this back from a 5/5. It's a great album because you can distinctly feel the good time vibes and you feel like you are right there along for the ride, and the ride is a joy.

The kind of a manic, funny, and catchy hip hop album that I’d expect from the early 90s classic Nickelodeon cartoon era album. I don’t know why, but when I hear this album all I can think about is that it exudes Ren and Stempy energy. Definitely should be called a “classic”- if you’re a native tongues fan on the east coast, then this is the west coast’s response to tribe, jungle brothers, and de la soul. If you like them, I can’t recommend this album more.

If you're looking for an easy intro to hip-hop, look no further than Bizarre Ride II from Pharcyde. This album represents the perfect transitional record between old school and new hip-hop. Eminem had to be looking at this thinking, that's my roadmap to success. Oh Shit is amazing! Definitely glad to have heard that one! I'll be referencing it for years! Obviously some of this album is meant to examine both humor but also racial inequality in the style of hip hop, which both wants to exclude and include me as a white man, who clearly can NOT sing along. But it's their humor that keeps everyone on board and it's brilliant to make a record like this. The beats are amazing too. There's a Jazz under current and references to Thelonious Monk. There's some real weird stuff in here, but it's captivating. At the end of the day, it's innovative, compelling, funny, and like I said, a great intro to the genre!

This was a cool one. I've been recommended this one before but never got around to it. Definitely a worthy consideration as a hip-hop classic, though I don't see much mention of Pharcyde in those conversations. Plenty of great beats and hooks, including a few that I recognized as samples. Great humor and energy. The skits bogged this down a bit; that's a complaint I'd have about a lot of classic rap albums. But it's still a great ride. Favorite tracks: Oh Shit, Passin' Me By, 4 Better of 4 Worse, Soul Flower Remix. Album art: Love the art style here. The characters a bit unsettling, and they're riding a coaster into what appears to be a....uh...Georgia O'Keeffe painting with teeth. I like this a lot. 4/5

This is a bizarre album and a lot of fun. Definitely less series than the popular gangsta rap at the time. Everyone on the album sounds like they're having fun. It is more similar to De La Soul with a more jazzy and funky backdrop. Great production and sampling. Notable samples from Richard Pryor, James Brown and Jimi Hendrix. Four emcees/rappers who rap separately or as a group. Some of these songs definitely go for comedy, singing about how fat your Momma is. One area it does suffer from, which appears to be a common theme in the CD Era, is its length at 56 minutes. Though, it does not drag.

A breezy hip hop album. The instrumentation has a strong jazz influence which is pleasant, relaxed and elevates it above the norm for a genre I'm not usually keen on. Light and humerous lyrics. This still has that 90s rap vocal rhythm which gives it a dated feel. 3/5

Sorpresa positiva. No m'esperava gaire d'un grup que desconeixia i una portada tan poc atractiva... i el cert és que el hip hop estilós de The Pharcyde és força engrescador. Barrejat amb funk i molt de soul, comet l'error habiual del génere en donar cabuda a massa temes, alguns d'ells se'ls podrien estalviar, però n'hi ha uns quants ('4 Better or 4 Worse', 'Ya Mama', 'I'm That Type of Nigga', 'Soulflower') que mereixen un lloc molt destacat al hip hop més melòdic dels 90

Bizarre Ride II has that early form Hip-Hop flavour in the way of their flow and overall beats and sound with a familiar cadence and flow of the late 80s early 90s. Their lyrical content is typically not as heavy as those of other artists of the time - particularly NWA and the like. Overall an easy listening album, where lots of the tracks would work well in things like skate videos or skate video games Best: Oh Shit; Ya Mama Worst: Return Of the B-Boy Note: Spotify didn't have the track Officer - had to jump over to YouTube to listen.

Love the beats. Don't love the lyrics. Some songs are just brutal in terms of their shock value (4 Better or Worse where some dude keeps calling to harass some girl) or use of the N word (clearly I'm that Type of N). Some are kind of funny/cheeky (Ya Mama) but I feel they rely on that bag of tricks a bit too often. The beats are awesome though. Totally 90's rap sound - I wonder how dated it sounds to someone who didn't grow up then. Probably a 3.5 but I think I'm rounding down. But it was a tough call.

If you haven’t seen it, watch the Pharcyde’s video to “Drop”. That’s pretty amazing. As for this album, I liked the style and their flow was great. I just… I can’t listen to any track on this and feel comfortable. Is that wrong? There are rap albums I will listen to on my own, and some I will listen to with my 13-year old. But this… I feel dirty listening to it. 2 Live Crew is different. They’re going for shock. This is an emphasis on sex, and weed and the n-word that I cannot follow. Maybe I would have enjoyed this when I was younger, but the 50- year old says differently.

Fun, irreverent West Coast hip hop that sounds like a cross between Frank Zappa's sophomoric lyrics and the Beastie Boys. I like this more laid back rap style that doesn't take itself so seriously, yes Gangsta Rap I'm looking at you. Sure, it was misogynistic and sophomoric, but it was a fun listen. My favourite track was Passing me by, its such a classic song and has also been sampled tons of times over the years, testament to how cool it is. I had to Google the lyrics of the songs and read along to appreciate their wit

The presumption is that the album is bizarre, and truthfully it is. Explicit lyrics taken into account, the album manages to make it bright vs. dark, as if the listener is supposed to find humor in it rather than a Shakespearean tragedy. This is hard to like and even more difficult to hate. While the subject matter on "4 Better Or 4 Worse" seems to be a prank call, it is difficult to find that as being humorous. It is ugly and demeaning to the female recipient, and while it may be funny to the caller, there is a deeper truth to be gleaned from the song. The song is not funny, it is actually quite cringeworthy but it sheds a different light on the story. The listener and probably even the band knows that a phone call like that is supposed to be funny when it is not, and because it is not, it is, because it is a story being told that is outlandish and near unbelievable. Where the band deviated from the usual stories of 90s explicit rap, The Pharcyde instead put their focus inwards on to a different aspect of our humanity, our ability to be silly, at times profane, to amplify the ridiculous parts of life, and still be here when it is over, a roundabout reminder that we are humans. Granted, this review does not pretend to endorse the album's subject matter but it does ask the listener to leave any seriousness behind when listening to it. Allow for some awkwardness or discomfort and try to convince the heart and mind that, yes, it is all fun but in poor taste, and that is the point. It is not often that an album sets out to do what it intends, but this album does and it does it well. Objectively, the album is well-written and The Pharcyde are excellent purveyors of their craft and it sounds like they are having fun with it. The parental advisory is well-earned, and that is going to have to be okay. Hard to like, even harder to hate.

This album has a really fun sound and The Pharcyde can be pretty impressive in their clowning around. Could that really be a Jetsons Jet Screamer reference in “Soul Flower”?! This has a refreshing brightened up rap style that I very much like. The handling of the subject matter is problematic in many, many places. I had too many cringey moments. I didn’t mind the sex, drugs and humor, except too often the fun comes at the expense of others which really brings down my enjoyment level. I can say the music and rap skills have me leaning towards a 5, but the lyrics send me somewhere around 1 or 2. Averaging those to a 3. I’m not satisfied with this rating as listening to my favorite tracks it is too low but listening to many of the other tracks it seems too high. Favorite Tracks: Soul Flower, Officer, Return of the B-Boy

I have heard of The Pharcyde, and was interested and hopeful when I saw this album pop up on the list. Like many hip-hop albums from the 90s, I dig the beats and samples…although a few tracks ran a bit long and became too repetitive.

As far as beats go, it hits the usual notes of early 90's beats. It's got a hint of the old 80's with something new, and it almost always sounds great.

Very much early 90s rap. The first half of the album is bad. I could tell these guys had good flow in the verses but the content was so offputting that I already made my mind up that this is getting a 1. Lots of references to sexual assault, misogyny, yo mama jokes, and just juvenile vulgarity. I have no problem with swearing, but not like this. The back half of the album is an improvement, Officer and Pass Me By are both pretty good. They'll get an extra point for those tunes but without them this would be a 1 and I still have no desire to hear it ever again.

Cette façon curieuse de dessiner le S sera reprise par tous les enfants dans les cours d'école.

This is the debut album from the hip-hop group The Pharcyde. It is a classic hip-hop album because it was released early on during the Gangsta rap era, however it was a playful, alternative form of hip-hop at the time. The album has been certified gold in the US. The comedic lyrics, friendly banter, self-deprecating humor - both low and high - and wild tales, all apparent in these songs makes for a great album by a funny group of guys that can actually rap. This is now a nostalgic album from the golden days of rap, but the music still holds up. My only gripe is that I'm more of a fan of modern day rap.

Also, I like to think I'm a guy who has a fair amount of experience listening to music that's intentionally chaotic. And there are chaotic albums that I 100% listen to for pleasure. But there were moments on this record where it just felt like I was in a room with six or seven people and they were all talking at once about 6 or 7 different things and one of them had a drum machine and another had some LPs and all of it was going on all at once and all I wanted to do was just get the hell out of that room. So it was all too much for me today. I'm not saying I didn't appreciate the "Oh Shit" song or the one about your momma. I'm human, after all. But I was mostly annoyed by this one.
