The X-Ecutioners Revolutions
- Words: Pete Babb
- Label: Columbia
Turntable music may finally be ready to graduate middle school, and the X-Ecutioners are at the head of the class. The greatest challenge the trio faces is translating their skills into album format, and they try many approaches with varying results. They take it back to the original school on "Live from the PJs" by backspinning classic breaks while MCs get loose. But the remix of White Zombie's "More Human Than Human" (featuring Rob Zombie and Slug) seems like an attempt to recapture the Linkin Park collab "It's Going Down," and doesn't fare well. All in all, though, the hits outweigh the misses, and the X-Ecutioners have matriculated with honors.
