If you're a Clone, you'll want it!"

- Greg in Sun Valley

(The following songs are reviewed by Greg in Sun Valley)

1. Clones Without a Take
    Rating: 3.0
    Comments: Sung from the view of Jim Rome, "Clones.." laments the poor job of most callers when they call his show. It is easy, however, for said callers to " deceive a Fullerton degree" and get by former call screener Jayson Stewart. "Corvette Guy" even makes an appearance. Funny!

2. Flabby
    Rating: 5.0
    Comments: "Who am I kidding?...Give me the whole tray (of donuts)! Snack along with Rob Kardashian as he sings about some of his favorite foods and what they've done to his personal appearance. Jim Rome is not amused...but clones will be!

3. Man's Game
    Rating 4.5
    Comments: "Get your facts straight!" Alvin is a MAN!  This short rap ;is upbeat, yet flows freely from baby music to funk....All in honor of Jungle sound engineer Alvin Delloro. Love this parody!

4. Don't You Cut Me
    Rating 0.5
    Comments: Honestly, I'm with Jim Rome on this. O.J. jokes and parodies, especially those directed at the killng of his wife and Ron Goldman don't amuse me. There are rhyming lyrics here set to "Don't You Want Me" by the Human League.

5. J. Stew the Jungle Phone Slap
    Rating: 5.0
    Comments: "Walking the thin line..." A holiday song...about J. Stew? Cracks on Jason Stewart mixed with time honored clips of the man himself equals Jungle gold for clones! My biggest laugh cam at the very end. Magic_Uno...one of your best!

6. Unfit To Be King
    Rating: 2.0
    Comments: If we didn't know then, we know now: Jim Rome's Smack Off judging decisions are final! this song laments Vic in NoCal's 2010 Smack Off win. The call for a recount went unheard.

7.  Celebrity Drunk Bus
     Rating 5.0
     Comments: "1-800-BAAAAAHHH"...Funniest public service announcement ever. Don't drink and drive, people! Just call Jim Rome's drunk bus. My stomach muscles constricted with laughter at the insertion of Rome's "BAAAAHHHH" in the backround of the Tony LaRussa clip!

8. Bacon Bits
    Rating: 3.0
    Comments: Who loves bacon bits that much? Jon Gruden, that's who! This short ditty finds Mr. Gruden topping even ice cream with the stuff! FAT, fun, and portly smack for the clones.

9. Travis, You're Much Too FAT
    Rating: 3.5
    Comments: Magic_Uno plays Jim Rome here, putting former producer Travis Rodgers on blast for excess FAT. Full of cracks and even heavy breathing when "lap around the block" is said. If Rosie O'Fat thinks you're chybby, there's a problem.

10. I Practice Law
      Rating: 2.5
      Comments: A clone takes the hit here: Craig in Tampa, who says he is a lawyer. " I practice law, but I suck". It is hard to find words that rhyme with "suck". Good production value, though.

(The following songs are reviewed by Vic in NoCal)

11. PORNO STACHE:  5. Maybe Jesus’s best known song, this one got some run from Rome in the Jungle one year.  Clowns J-Stew for his porn stache and wooden & laconic acting in made-for-TV movies.  I’m partial to the tracks that are made by Jesus himself and not produced professionally by Chad, and here he does a good job singing the lower parts, and the “It was the stache!” parts are funny.  Bonus: Some brief J-Stew audio from The Green River Killer.

12. YOU GOTS TO CHILI: 4.  Chad in Portland production.  A more basic straight up rap, with a good flow, about Kyle Brandt raking in the dough by selling his homemade chili. Good performance by the guest rappers and great use of the original EPMD song on lines like “To the average clone he's known as a flatulator, hearty soup maker, open house perpetrator.”

13. WELCOME TO THE NUT:  4.  An ode to Clone-centric website Stucknut.com, with shoutouts to Steve in H-town, Pooldoc, & WAR Ethan.  A chill, laidback groove. Good use of the Mike Tyson “scared coward” soundbite and some good lines like “SNR drops more shit than Tweety in a birdcage."

14. H.A.C.K.: 2. CiP production dissing the hack Eddie in Boise.  Not many memorable lines here, and parodying the Village People’s YMCA is basically quite hacky in itself (irony? Meta??), though it gets points for referencing Eddie’s failed standup comedy videos from Youtube.

15. KYLE B: 4.5.   Another smooth beat, good use of Rome soundbite to serve as the foundation.  Good lines like “The guy who reality whores simply adore, giving skanks in The Real World what they’re looking for”, “asthma spray” to help KB’s heavy breathing, funny references to Luis Polonia and the classic line “It’s not Ryan, it’s Ryne.”

16. MADE FOR PIMPING: 4. CiP produced song calling out the Pimp in the Box for his propensity to…pimp product. “I'd sell you my Facebook page ad space if only it were up to me” haha

17. JSTEW BITCH: 5. Hilarious image of J-Stew as a pimpslapping badass.  “Mr Automatic, that means it comes naturally”, “I used to give you the dial tone, now I diss you by rhyming.” You can’t go wrong with that M.O.P. beat that he samples here. Great use of Rome manual buzzer as the emergency broadcast system test.   “My library of porn is immaculate”. Good use of phone noises in the background & nice “CHEW IT!” tagline.

18. TRIPLE U:  1.5. CiP production of a Peter Frampton song but  just not enough memorable lines here.  It’s short though, so it feels like feels like an intermission/interlude song

19. I NEED ROME: 5+.  This might be the Cadillac of the entire box set.  Rome’s biggest fan,  Marty in Nocal, is the star of this one.  Hilarious use of the LL Cool J soft singing voice, great lines about matching goatees, customized knitted sweaters, dropping the anchor on a sailing trip, and a jealous Marty wishing Janet was out of the picture.  Bonus: F-R-E-E that spells free reference

20. LOVE CHI-TOWN: NOT RATED (NOT JUNGLE-RELATED)

21. COCKFIGHTS: 2.5. From way back in 2007, an original Jesus production. For a minute there, I thought that opening beat was the same beat from the Counting Crows song Big Yellow Taxi (seriously, look it up).  Funny use of Rome “Caww!” soundbites and Howard Dean yell, but overall kinda long & short on memorable lines.

(The following songs are reviewed by Greg in Sun Valley)

22. Rome Is Burning... (Interlude - Not Rated)

23.  The Hack Off Anthem
        Rating: 3.5
       Comments: "We're In-fa-muss"! The Hack Off callers revel in  telling bad jokes, being run, and getting clout. The unscripted nervousness of Matt in Cleveland and Vinnie Mac is there and always makes me laugh.

24.  Cordon Bleu
       Rating: 3.0
       Comments: A throaty singer plays J. Stew celebrating a lunch stop for a sandwich...or three at Wendy's. There are catchy lines in this ode to food and men that love it.

25.  The Rodent Family
        Rating: 4.0
       Comments: Pavin, Coach K., Mike Shanahan...getting the picture? Jim Rome says "it" will return before the Hack Off does: The Family...aka The Rat Family...aka The Rodent Family. Marvelous job by Magic_Uno here. Laughs abound. "Gaetti and The Unit"...Classic.

26.  I'm a Broke Pimp, Man
       Rating: 3.0
       Comments: Curtis Mayfield was huge. Here, his music becomes a vehicle to crack one Monroe from Milwaukee, a caller we haven't heard from in a while. His "squeegee game is mean". Did this song chase him away?

27.  The Best in the Midwest
       Rating: 2.5
       Comments: Even Vinnie Mac thinks Kyle Moss is "The bottle on the top shelf"...But this song is not. It's a smooth rap, but lyrically not the author's best. A dribbler up the middle for a single? Maybe.

28.  Owner of a Lovely Horse
       Rating 5.0
       Comments: Full disclosure: I like Jim Rome's foray into horse racing. But this song is hilarious and well done. Just one question: How did Norv Turner get into this parody? Listen! Classic crack. "Owner of a Lonely Heart" re-done...extremely well. And yes, being a member at a lush golf course is much better than a "clone behind on child support."

29.  Boatie Execution
       Rating: 3.0
       Comments: I don't remember this feud, but Jesus in Chicago responds to Boatie in Pearland with a vengeance!  He seems to take on the whole state of Texas as well.

30.  Welcome Back, Snagger
       Rating: 4.75
       Comments: There is nothing forced in these lyrics! Smooth rhymes that state how we all feel when Jim Rome is on vacation: "We get that you have leisure, but these subs give us a seizure......Welcome back!"

31. Dead The Monkey Spanker
      Rating: 3.5
      Comments: "I kind of feel like Hendrix must have felt following The Monkees." With that comment about Magic_Uno, an old school caller inherits  rap beating. Brutal!

32. Takes On Me
      Rating: 3.75
      Comments: Do you have opinions about these songs? They better be good. You just might get a song written about you. In a spirited defense of his rhymes, the author channels A-Ha's "Takes On Me".

(The following songs are reviewed by Vic in NoCal)

33. FRIDAY (YEAH MIX): 4. Great use of the Yeahs from the Deca yeah to start the song.  Fast flow on the rhymes.  Features shoutouts to T-Rodge, J-Stew, and MGD Man’s Game Delloro.

34. MANUAL BUZZER: 1.5.  CiP production. Good production but no real memorable lines or creative use of soundbites. And parodying the Ghostbusters song is kinda hacky (see: YMCA above)

35. I DROPPED A DEUCE ON IT: 4.5.  Can’t go wrong with I Got Five On It.   Nothing fancy here, just some good ol’ fashioned flatulence & toilet humor.  Jesus has to do some singing in the chorus and it’s not awful.  Ends it with a fitting soundbite from House Party.

36. GONNA TAKE A MIRACLE: 4. CiP production dissing Vic in Nocal, probably the greatest caller in the history of sports talk radio.  “Compared to real pros his smack is low quality.”   “… for Rome to twice screw the pooch, give the finger to this douche”.  Not many memorable lines here (look for the subtle Trent Dilfer reference at the end) but the production is top notch & the lady singing is outstanding, there’s even some doo wops in there.

37. BUMS: 5.  A heartless assault on bums. Jesus busts out the low singing voice again, channeling his inner Dr. Dre.  Awesome lines about bums cleaning glass at red lights, and also spending their money on drugs, running when 5-0 comes by, and faking limps.

38. MR JUNGLE PHONE SLAP: 2.5. CiP production of a New Edition parody about callers who can’t get through and on the air.   Most of the lines are meh, but as usual with CiP, the production is good.

39. SMACKOFF 101: 4.5.  From way back in 2007, this song’s longer than the others. Nothing cute here, just straight rap with a good oldschool beat and Jesus  dropping high volume of rhymes.  Good lines about Aim and Scope, Steve from Jerry Springer, Charles Smith getting rejected consecutively, JC Chavez, Alfonseca, and StrongMan contests.

40. DRUNK BUDDY: 3.  CiP production, gets points for using Foreigner. Standout lines are “Check my BAC, I’m blowing readings of .23”  “Now you look divine, went from a 6 to a 9”

41. MISS GINA GERSHON: 3.5. Song about J-Stew, the “Fullerton dorm freak” telling Gina that “playing this perv role couldn’t mean more to me.”  Memorable lines are few but you can’t go wrong with A Tribe Called Quest.

42. BAGS GETTING RUN: 3. CiP production.  Longer than the other songs.  Lines are just so-so but the solid production bumps it up half a point.

Summary

"Overall, the box set contains a lot of classic moments and is full of Jungle references and inside jokes that old listeners will appreciate.  The songs and beats range from hardhitting and in your face to chill and laidback.  The best part is that most of these songs get better upon multiple listenings.  A couple of these WILL get stuck in your head as you're trying to go about your day."

40. DRUNK BUDDY: 3.  CiP production, gets points for using Foreigner. Standout lines are “Check my BAC, I’m blowing readings of .23”  “Now you look divine, went from a 6 to a 9”

41. MISS GINA GERSHON: 3.5. Song about J-Stew, the “Fullerton dorm freak” telling Gina that “playing this perv role couldn’t mean more to me.”  Memorable lines are few but you can’t go wrong with A Tribe Called Quest.

42. BAGS GETTING RUN: 3. CiP production.  Longer than the other songs.  Lines are just so-so but the solid production bumps it up half a point.
