    Perhaps Bone Thugs-N-Harmony have created a new genre of music and should no longer be considered "rap." No, they're not singing over a rap beat, or rapping over an R&B tune or sampled loop; so what exactly are they doing? What Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are doing is fascinating the industry with an idiosyncratic vocal style--call it harmony hip-hop.
    E. 1999 ETERNAL, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's first full-length release, further displays the trio's Cleveland-born music, and continues to concentrate on their thuggish-ruggish lifestyle. While Bone touch on the same themes as the bulk of gangsta rappers, they transform their world into a horror-filled fantasy. Thus, "Crossroad" deals not only with the reality of death, but with the inevitability of meeting the "missed ones" on the other side; and "Down '71 (The Getaway)" tells a tale of the group's escape from an execution.
    Not only are Bone Thugs-N-Harmony vocally unique (the a capella "Me Killa" is the rap equivalent of doo-wop), but the beats represent both the East and West coast rap schools. On E. 1999 ETERNAL, D.J. U-Neek controls the boards, and helps Bone establish a Midwestern brand of hip-hop.

    Q (3/00, pp.116-7) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...nobody...could do what they do....rapping at breakneck pace either against or with each other, underpinned by Armageddon-fixated spirituality....just doo-wop interplay, jazz-style scatting and staggeringly tight harmonies. Truly extraordinary."

    Vibe (9/95, p.188) - "...bridging decidedly West Coast, bumping beats and harmonizing choruses with complicated Eastern-style flows, the quintet illuminate[s] the possibilities of mid-western hip hop--married to neither coast but obviously inspired by both..."
