Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.

  • Return to form



  • Iím probably one of the biggest Stuck Mojo fans in the world. I can remember seeing the band in the 90s in sweaty bars and warehouses all over the East Coast. The rap-core pioneers were innovative and influential with their blend of Black Sabbath heaviness amongst Run DMC street poetry. The last album to feature vocalist Bonz, 'Declaration of a Headhunter' (2000), was sadly the group's Century Media demise and the vocalist's departure from the band. After a long absence the charismatic front man returns again with his own project, simply titled Bonz. The vocalist teams up with Primer 55 guitarist/bassist Curt Taylor to deliver a quality album of heavy groove-based tracks that are orchestrated by Bonz's speak-easy rap delivery. Fans of Stuck Mojo's early days, notably 'Snappin' Necks' should enjoy this electric frenzy of rapcore that comes full circle and delivers a triumphant return to form for this highly under-rated vocalist. Look for a possible Stuck Mojo studio album in the near future based on Bonz performing with the band last December.
