Ill – “Gotten Gains”

Ill – “Gotten Gains” (Glassville Records)

I was never a big fan of Sade so I felt less than inspired to pick up on a band whose guitarist / vocalist (Ryan Waters) was also a member of her group – but Ill are something else babaay! Also from the deep south, Ill take in the gospel soul vocals of Kings X, add in the funky rhythms of Fishbone, amp it up with some RATM attitude in their punchy riffs and cap it all off with some Hendrix inspired solo work. So if you’re into experimenting, then songs like ‘Christine’, ‘Bitch’ and ‘Castration’ will no doubt float your boat as they shake n slide, rock n roll and teasingly tempt you to try something different. Now that’s a trip baby.
