Of all the albums we've reviewed so far, Dope Box might be the most diverse (or schizophrenic).

Author & Special Guests

We're tackling the 1998 release Dope Box from Jack Drag. Of all the albums we've reviewed so far, Dope Box might be the most diverse (or schizophrenic), bouncing from Prodigy-esque big beats on one song, to mid-tempo Velvet Crush-like power pop on the next. There's a lot to like about this album, and a lot of befuddlement as well. Which side did we come down on?

Does This album bring back some great vibes?
