The Cool Kids 88
- Words: Zeph

I really don't see the '88 parallel here. These guys' lyrical subjects, although hilarious at times, would not have gone over well in '88. Entertaining, but not righteous. "88" is all drums, other than the same distorted guitar stab heard in N.W.A.'s "Boyz-N-the-Hood." I found the production a little boring. "One Two" sounds like it would knock at the right volume. It wasn't as 'throwback' as I expected, but in a good way.
