It's been a long time since Bone Thugs-N-Harmony were perched atop the charts. In fact, with almost three years between its last studio set, BTNHResurrection, it looked as though BTNH was no more—which couldn't be further from the truth. The Cleveland quartet of Krayzie Bone, Bizzy Bone, Layzie Bone, and Wish Bone—Flesh-N-Bone, the group's fifth member is currently incarcerated—is back, sounding better than ever. Walking that fine line between good and evil, BTNH again provide a balance between inspirational lyric and wild rhymes. Lead single "Get Up & Get It" (featuring 3LW and newcomer Felecia) is a positive and catchy re-introduction to the foursome. Elsewhere, group members indulge themselves on the hilarious, Bosko-produced "Bad Weed Blues." "Set It Straight," which addresses the rumors surrounding the group's future, proves almost ironic in light of the group's recent tension (Words & Deeds, Nov. 2).—RH
