Rap-metal outfit Kottonmouth Kings hails from Orange County, California, and makes music that is rooted in that region's aggressive punk tradition. But instead of taking political stances, Kottonmouth Kings sing about the necessity of marijuana, self-expression, and living large.
GREATEST HIGHS is a double album that acts as a retrospective for the Kings, serving up 39 tracks of hazy head-banging noise. The set will serve as a perfect summation for staunch fans, and a good entry point for the curious. The track "Suburban Life," which appeared in the film SCREAM 2 and brought the band to national recognition, is one of the highlights.
