You know sometimes I sit at home, you know, and watch TV and I wonder what it would be like to live someplace like the Cosby show, Ozzie and Harriet, you know, where the cops come and got you cat outta the tree and all your friends died of old age.
@Hail-Santa but Born Dead was the album where D-Roc and Mooseman got to write a lot of the songs as well, as opposed to just Ice-T and Ernie C doing it. That's why I like the album, you can tell that a lot of people brought in their ideas - some work, some don't. I can't say anything to defend Murder 4 Hire, it's horrible :P
There are basically 3 essential albums if you want to listen to BC. First is the debut for obvious reasons. Second is Violent Demise which shows Ice's improved singing ability and the overall improved musicianship even though two members would soon die (with a third dying during recording of Murder 4 Hire). The third album you need is Manslaughter for the humour Ice is starting to make much more apparent in the music as opposed to the more serious nature of previous albums. Born Dead and Murder 4 Hire are largely forgettable.
