If You Only Knew" shows what J-5 does so well-voices rhyming in tandem and solo-espousing knowledge and superior content superimposed over a fluttering piper. Big things were on their mind on songs such as "Freedom," "Remember His Name," and "I Am Somebody. A strong follow-up to their debut, Quality Control. Power In Numbers Jurassic 5.
But let's get to what you came here wondering about: whether Power in Numbers returns Jurassic 5 to that dope-as-fuck old-school revival style they came with on their debut EP, or if it's a too-comfortable retread of the ready-for-M2 formulas that turned Quality Control from what could have been one of tightest joints of. 2000 into a homogenized backpacker retreat. After a brief intro produced by Cut Chemist, the album kicks off proper with "Freedom".
Regardless of the situation Jurassic 5's Power in Numbers always makes me feel like one cool cat. Weather I’m having a stressful day, a happy day, or a crappy day Power in Numbers is always able to make me kick back and relax.

Jurassic 5: Power in Numbers. Power in Numbers may be their most ambitious album but its aim is to entertain. While the band's four MCs are just as lyrically dextrous as, say, an acclaimed but wearyingly combative rapper like Canibus, their rhyming is focused on the engaging communication of ideas, not wordplay as machismo.
LP (12" album, 33 rpm). Jurassic 5 Format: Vinyl. Jurassic 5 really gets back to the old school of big daddy kane and public enemy. Not only do their words have substance but the rhymes are on point! If you like cheap ghetto rap like g-unit or jay z with the catchy hooks, this ain't the album for you!
