Rise Up

With its two Tom Morello rap-rock tracks and lefty-punk cover art, the first Cypress Hill record in six years promises radical reinvention. Sure, 70 million bong hits have rendered B-Real and Sen Dog confused political theorists (complaining about taxes during a recession? What up, Glenn Beck?). But when they write what they know, they strike a nice balance between visions of bong-water Armageddon and Nineties light-'em-up boom-bap. "Armada Latina" big-ups the Cuban Revolution over a salsa bounce and a sample of CSN's "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" like a big sunny grin scrawled on an old Che poster.
