We gave it a B

Padded with remixes and cameos, Banner’s third CD of 2003 is a rush release, for sure, but the producer-rapper doesn’t slack off. His Marlboro-scorched bark balances belligerence with sensitive sentiments, while the skeletal beats create a Southern gothic-goes-crunk vibe — they’re spooky and Jeep ready. Worth buying if only for ”The Christmas Song,” possibly the most profane holiday tune of all time.
