Horrorcore Rock/rap group. A Lot of people like to hone in on the fact that the ICP members, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, can not write lyrics worth a shit. And while there right, you got to consider there skill at actual rapping (And by rapping, I don't mean talking fast like Eminem, I mean cadence, Literary Technique, Flow, ability to have your voice fit a song style, etc.), Producing (ICP produced all of The Calm E.P.), Singing (Violent J mostly), and Promotion of the group.
Maybe when you sell over 3 million albums, have millions of the most loyal fans on earth, Have your own Record Label, Have your own Wrestling Company, and do it all with NO help from the radio or MTV, THEN you can criticize ICP.
List of Insane Clown Posse Albums:
Carnival of Carnage: Really Ghetto Album. It would seem very outdated today but was good when they released it in 1992. Best Song on here is Your Rebel Flag
The Ringmaster: This album Was probably the wickedest sounding of them all, and contained lots of classics. Best song on here is probably either Chicken Huntin or Mr. Johnson's Head
The Riddle Box: A lot of People say this was the first actually "good sounding" Album. It was a lot like Jeckel Brothers, where every song was as good as the last, and as a result there weren't any "Juggalo Classic" tracks on it. Best Song on here is either Ol' Evil Eye or the Chicken Huntin Remix
The Great Milenko: This Album made ICP famous, Mostly because of the controversy with Disney who pulled it from Shelfs because they said the F word to many times. Best Song on here is probably Halls of Illusions or Hokus Pokus
The Amazing Jeckel Brothers: This Album was 4th on the Billboard Chart behind N'Sync and other boy bands. It was ICP's best album, considerably more grown up then past albums, better produced, and better rapping. This is also the album where ICP broke away from the ghetto and started making more Rock influenced music. Best song on here is probably I want my Shit or Terrible
Bizaar: First Album that wasn't a Joker's Card, kind of disappointing. Best song on here is Tilt-a-Whirl
Bizzar: First Album that wasn't a Joker's Card, kind of disappointing. Best song on here is Let's go all the Way
The Wraith: Shangri-La: The Most disappointing ICP Album, very hyped, but ended up sounding more mainstream and more happy, probably because Mike P. produced it instead of the Regular producer Mike E. Clark. Best song on here is probably It Rains Diamonds
The Wraith: Hell's Pit: Slightly better, but by not much. It has a very strong feel to it, as all songs sound somewhat alike and all talk about the dark side of life. Best song on here is Bowling Balls
The Tempest: Newest ICP Album, second album released that wasn't a Jokers Card. A pretty scattered album, all the songs talk about a different thing and all sound different. Most likely because Mike P. Stopped producing and Mike E. Clark came back, which is great, because this is no doubt the best ICP produced album of them all. Best song on here is either I Do This or Growing Again.
