Limited 180gm vinyl LP repressing, released to coincide with the 20th Anniversary of the album's original release. House of Pain, the Irish-American Hip Hop group really blossomed on it's second album, SAME AS IT EVER WAS (1994). with this album, Everlast changed his style of rapping considerably and unveiled a much more distinctive and recognizable approach. Sounding twisted, damaged, and maniacal, Everlast grabs the listener's attention and refuses to let go on such wildly entertaining fare as 'Back from the Dead', 'Over There Shit' and 'Runnin' Up on Ya'. An abundance of strong, clever hooks and Everlast's psycho-like rapping make SAME AS IT EVER WAS consistently appealing.
