With its hybrid of hip-hop, punk, and rock, the Kottonmouth Kings' fifth full-length album is a kick-back listen full of smooth beats and even bits of acoustic guitar. While the project has a heavy lyrical theme touting the legalization of marijuana, the songs reflect a positive outlook on life beyond its drug references. Case in point is the pop-oriented "Positive Vibes," which includes the chorus "we need some positive vibes for these rainy days/let the sun come out and push these clouds away." The Kings offer a number of slower jams ("Float Away" and "Rest of My Life") that stress the importance of relaxation and enjoying one's personal relationships. These ideas are also prevalent on many of the more hip-hop-oriented tracks, like the synthesizer-laden "Endless Highway."—JK
