Ordinary Peoples
Cause and Effect

by Devon McReynolds

For those of you who enjoy politically charged lyrics and head-nodding beats,
Cause and Effect by hip-hop trio Ordinary Peoples is an album you should check out. Most of the beats are typical of any hip-hop or R&B group, but on several tracks, they still manage to keep their sound fresh, funky, and original by adding flairs such as piano, handclaps, guitar, and even a horn section on some songs.

The highlight of
Cause and Effect is third track “Shine,” which is the most old-school sounding on the album. “Soul Searchin’” is an R&B geared track with a pretty guitar melody followed by a bridge sung in “ba da da”’s. But it is after this track (number 5) that the album becomes tedious. Cause and Effect is too long to keep the listeners interest at 16 songs long; especially when several of the songs clock in at over four minutes.

Nevertheless, if you are a fan of rap groups like Jurassic 5, A Tribe Called Quest, or Kanye West,
Cause and Effect is worth a listen.
