Ringmaster

From best American group to worst in one post. If you're one of the few juggalos out there then you probably wouldn't classify Insane Clown Posse as the worst American group out there but 99.8 percent of all critics agree that they are the worst. Not being a normal critic I guess I fall into the juggalo category.

Ringmaster is the second studio album by American hip hop duo Insane Clown Posse, released in 1994 by Psychopathic Records. It is the second Joker's Card entry in the group's Dark Carnival saga. The album is meant as "all of your sins and hatred whipped and spun into form, a form that will bring about this dreaded Carnival's visit."

The ICP are about the only rap artists that I can stand to listen to, while most people think they're shitty, especially those who have never heard them. They are the loudest ICP haters. Yep, their overt sexism, inadvertent racism, and rampant juvenalia is right out there in the open and it will offend the casual observer, of course, but that's just what they're looking for. Ringmaster is a much more focused album than their first, Carnival of Carnage. Not to say it's their best but there are several ICP classics here icluding Chicken Huntin', Murder go Round and Mr. Johnson's Head. Not for everybody of course but if you get it and not take it too seriously you too can enjoy ICP. I must admit it's an acquired taste much like Public Image Ltd is.
