Hell yeah Hold It Down is the shit. I love that album and it's a shame it got overlooked. Bad News song with PMD is the shit. I love that beat. Another favorite Das EFX album of mine that got slept on is Straight Up Sewaside. I also like their Generation EFX and How We Do albums. How We Do was released 3 years ago. It's not that bad.

Das EFX are a pretty slept on group really. This album was tight. So were their first 2. I think even the fourth one was pretty good. I don't remember it well. But yeah, I'd give this an 8.5/10.

damn I've been sleeping on this album, seen it in the store and thinking bout picking the up but I saw some review at AllMusic that gave out 2/5.. I picked it up today and bumping it right now and shit is raw as hell, grimy new york Boom Bap - my favorite type of hip-hop... can't really rate it on one listen but what the hell; at least 8.5/10

Very dope album, but Dead Serious is my favourite from them, I remember first getting "They Want EFX" on 12" and playing it every time I played at a club or a bar, it would always make the crowd hype.

Then I saw the review in The Source and wanted the album there and then, I remember the first time I heard it and I flipped out, I ordered it in the record store I was working in and I sold mad copies too...ahhhh 1992...man I miss it.
