The fifth record from Ice T's metal group is easily its best since its 1992 debut. There’s nothing as incendiary here as that year’s "Cop Killer," but Manslaughter does feature the band’s smartest musical leap in decades: evolving from its original sloppy mix of thrash and punk to lean, contemporary extreme metal. Over precise doublekicks and lurching metalcore riffs, Ice sounds like he’s having more fun than he’s had in years – raging against hip-hop’s apolitical bottle-popping, reclaiming his own "99 Problems" from Jay Z and covering Suicidal Tendencies’ "Institutionalized" with new lyrics about smug vegans.
