REVIEWS

****
Schöner rap/Hip Hop aus Januar 1984......, Das Remix von dieser song war auch einer Hit in Holland in Mai 1990 !!!!
****
geht
*****
GRANDMASTER FLASH MACHT COOLEN OLD-SCHOOL-RAP
MELLE MEL IST ÜBRIGENS EINFACH EIN MITGLIED VON "GRANDMASTER-FLASH & THE FURIOUS FIVE"
****
die Rap-Songs der ersten Tage waren viel besser als der heutige Schrott
*****
Melle Mel - ein ganz großer seiner Zunft!
******
Klassiker!
*****
Für mich nicht ganz so gut, wie andere Titel von ihnen. Aber die Produktion finde ich auch toll.
*****
dito voyager2
****
Kommt (leider) nicht an die andern Hits ran.
***
Nein, heute noch weniger als früher...
*
Schrecklich. Da sträuben sich mir die Nackenhaare, da krieg ich Plack.

Im Gegensatz zu anderen OldSchool-HipHop-Tracks konnte ich diesem nie viel abgewinnen. Finde die Bassline extrem langweilig und eintönig!
****
find ich ganz gut.
**
Der Erreger der Vogelseuche heisst H5N1.
Der Erreger der HipHopseuche heisst Grandmaster Flash.
Welches ist wohl lästiger?
Antwort: Das, welches sich auf Menschen übertragen hat.
Auf diese Musikrichtung hätte ich zeitlebens gut verzichten können.
Achja, auf dieses Lied auch. Nichtssagend.
***
Dito landjeeger, außerdem verbinde ich mit weißen Linien nur Fußball- und Tennisplätze, hahaha.

# 7 in GB im Sommer 1984.
****
Nicht mein unbedingter Sound..aber weit besser als NY.
Positiv sind die Percussions, die "12 Maxi hat auch was..

Ein Anti-Drogen-Song, der klingt als wäre er auf Drogen aufgenommen worden. Der Track lebt vom coolen Oldschool-Rhythmus. Ansonsten wirklich nichts besonderes. 3.5-
******
Ein Klassiker aus den 80ern!
***
nicht so gut, aber auch nicht schlecht.
Darum die mitte
****
classic.
****
"Get higher, baby! Get higher, baby! Get higher, baby!" Grandmaster Flash hat mich immer an den Turntables überzeugt. Beste Scratches, was hier leider nicht so zum Einsatz kam.
****
So schlecht finde ich den Song nun auch wieder nicht. Ein Anti-Drogen Song aus der Hip-Hop-Szene. Irgendwann in den 90ern hat sich die Seite gekehrt und in den Songs wurde der Drogenkonsum verherrlicht. Seltsame Sache.
***
war schon mehr pop rap
*****
Old School.
****
..."The Message" und "New York..." fand ich einen Tick besser...
*****
Auch ein sehr guter "Old School Rap"-Titel.
******
old school hip hop klassiker!! super sound, klasse text!
****
U.S. Street Mix: in diesem Mix eine ansprechende Rapscheibe im Oldskool-Stil - 4+...
****
echt super heb ik deze hiphop-plaat nooit gevonden. Ik laat het bij 4 sterren
*****
▒ Lekkere aparte dansklassieker uit 1984 en 1990 (Holland) van "Grandmaster Flash & Melle Mel" !!! Nostalgie: 5 sterren ☺!!!
***
... finde ich jetzt nicht mehr gut ... Sorry ...
**
Insert Pauline Pantsdown song here.
**
This is creepy.
****
Leuk nummer uit de jaren tachtig van Grandmaster Flash. Als ik het me goed herinner was "White lines" de opvolger voor "The message".
***
takes too long to get anywhere
****
wirkt manchmal ein bissel nervig, aber es bietet dafür ordentlich Abwechslung, sowohl die Strophe als auch der Refrain weisen einen hohen Wiedererkennungswert auf, obwohl sie total verschieden sind - dafür gibt's von mir ordentliche vier Punkte...!
***
Net so scheee
**
I never really liked this song.

plätschert so dahin, stört nicht begeistert nicht...
***
Originally peaked at #27 in Australia, 1984.

So glad Duran Duran absolutely smashed this otherwise ordinary track.
****
Grandmaster Flash, geboren in Barbados, had in de jaren 80 succes met de hiphopplaat White Lines, wat een aardig nummer is
***
Keine 80er Perle die man kennen muss, wie ich finde! Kann man hören, aber für mich nichts besonderes! IRL #22
****
Aufgerundete 4!
****
redelijk
*****
Practice what you preach was volgens mij niet helemaal aan hen besteed, maar dit is met afstand mijn favoriete nummer van deze groep die telkens even anders geafficheerd werd.
****

Ihr zweiter und letzter Top Ten Hit in UK.
***
3 stars

CDN: -
USA: #101, 1983
*****
Guter Flow, gutes Bassspiel und hört sich insgesamt geschmeidig an. Ich mag es.
***
This does go down as a memorable hip hop track. The vocals and melody are ok but overall it's not the kind of song I'd waste much time listening to. I agree, it does go for too long.
#7 peak UK, 1984.
